Wrought iron railings for modern townhouse at Kirby Muxloe
Versatility key to home which offers everything
Versatility’s the key to this three-storey, modern townhouse at Kirby Muxloe. The four/five-bedroom, end-terraced home in Desford Road, fronted by wrought iron railings, is part of a small development built six years ago and has had only one occupant from new.
Bobbie Piasecki has added her own value in the form of a rear family garden room, bringing further style and footage to what really is a deceptively spacious property, big enough for a small family, yet with a cosy feel that would suit someone living alone, busy working professionals, or a couple downsizing.
“I chose this house as I wanted something new, I loved the design and it offered lots of options,” said Bobbie.
“On the ground floor there is a room which could be a bedroom, study or extra reception room.
“The beauty of it is that the accommodation is flexible, with up to five bedrooms if you wish, so can be adapted however you like.”
With its stylish, first floor sitting room, featuring French doors and a front-facing Juliette balcony the house offers a quirky take on modern living.
A surprisingly large entrance hall leads into possible bedroom five on the ground floor and on to the spacious living kitchen, fitted with an extensive range of pale timber effect base and eye-level cupboards, with integral fridge freezer and dishwasher and including a central island.
The family room extension adds an extra dimension to the ground floor, with dual aspect French doors out to the landscaped garden well stocked and currently blooming, plus lawn and three patio areas, neatly enclosed by fencing.
“This room makes a great space for entertaining, especially in summer,” said Bobbie. “But it would also be a really good children’s playroom or TV room for teenagers.”
The bright, first floor lounge is a welcoming space with a fireplace focal point and two sets of windows overlooking the front of the property. At the back is the master bedroom, with space-saving built-in wardrobes and an en-suite, walk-in shower.
Off the second floor landing are three further bedrooms – one with an en suite shower – plus a family bathroom, creating a compact home, with all the space you need and plenty more.
