A substantial four double bedroom detached family home situated opposite Middleton Place and an attractive open green of trees and within this highly desirable residential address. Featuring a south facing garden and a plot extending to XXXX acres, the property dates back to the early 20th century together with a substantial two storey extension and offers original features including stripped doors, coved cornicing, stunning reception hall floor, three large reception rooms and the potential to extend into the roof space with a large landing providing space for a second staircase. With stunning gardens packed with plants, shrubs and trees and two large sheds, the property offers off road parking, space for a garage (subject to the necessary consents/approvals), gas fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing throughout. With considerable potential for extension and remodelling, early viewing is highly recommended giving the scarcity of properties such as this on the open market.
The Property Herrick Road is widely regarded as one of Loughborough's desirable residential addresses being only a short distance walk from the famous Loughborough Endowed schools and Loughborough University campus.
