Whether you are looking for your first property or a great area to invest in, you cannot go wrong with this immaculate two-bedroom ground-floor apartment in New Lubbesthorpe. There are so many impressive features to this property, that pictures alone do not do it justice. With it being an apartment, it is a leasehold property, but the benefits of this are that the communal areas and grounds are very well looked after. This is evident as soon as you arrive at the development with well-maintained garden areas and a spick and span communal entrance hall.
But let's move into the apartment itself. You arrive at the main entrance hall that provides access to all the rooms and it has a large cloak store and laundry store that are hidden away. The cloak store is so large that the current owner also uses it for extra storage for his kitchen appliances. The lounge sits looking out to the front of the building and has a floor to (nearly) ceiling window, with another feature window to the side creating an extremely light and airy room. As you can see from the pictures it can easily accommodate a large L-shaped sofa and dining table. The next room is the kitchen which overlooks the communal area at the back. It's of modern design with an integral fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and then there is the electric oven, gas hob and a stainless steel extractor hood over. There are then two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The main bedroom is a surprisingly large master room with its own en-suite comprising of a walk-in shower unit, toilet and hand basin. The second bedroom is just as impressive, being able to fit a double bed while leaving space for wardrobes and drawers. Finally, there is the main bathroom which comprises of a bath with a shower over, a toilet and a hand basin. Lots and lots of space within this apartment and viewing is necessary.
Outside to the rear there are well maintained gardens and parking spaces for two cars. Access to the bins are here too, hidden away to keep up the appearances of the grounds.
So why New Lubbesthorpe and what's the area like? The location is a new development just to the west of Leicester and close by to M1/M69 motorway links. Its situated close to Fosse Park Shopping Centre, Meridian business park, Merdian Leisure park, Everards Meadow and a 18 minute drive/bus ride to Leicester City Centre.
They are still developing the area and we are told that in the future there will be local shops, Bistros, gyms etc..
So you can understand why the area is such a great place to live, whether you are looking for yourself or a place to invest in.
