Are you looking for a stunningly presented, large and versatile family home, complete with a big, beautiful garden in one of the prime locations in Leicestershire?

Then come fall in love with Southmeads Close.

Tastefully finished and full of high-end design, this four/five-bedroom family home with two-bedroomed annex and swimming pool complex is a real find. This place is simply incredible – and that is evident from the very first impression. It could just be love at first sight!

This property in Oadby is set in an extremely favoured location within Leicester. When it comes to education, the choice locally is second to none. Leicester High School is close by, Beauchamp College and Manor High School are a few miles away, whilst the University of Leicester is a couple of miles to the north – and if children are just beginning their journey, the award-winning Nursery Rhymes is close at hand. Leicester Racecourse and Oadby Parade are nearby and the beautiful Botanical Gardens of the University of Leicester are a joy to visit. It sits in the most sought-after Leicestershire postcode and is surrounded by open green spaces making it perfect for family life - and with Leicester city centre less than a three-mile commute, it really does have it all.

This home is definitely worth a viewing. Expectations when approaching the property are high and well met – the distinctive avenue of cherry trees on Southmeads Road is a pleasure to pass by in the springtime and the property is nestled snugly in almost an acre of landscaped grounds.

Kerb appeal is not misplaced, and those first impressions when pulling onto the private, gated driveway are just lovely. With more than ample parking, take a minute to soak up the surroundings on your approach to the front door. The manicured front garden blends seamlessly with the surrounding properties.

Walk through the toughened glass front door and through the porch into the substantial entrance hall, which leads to the stunning staircase, open plan kitchen, dining and living areas, study, snug and swimming pool complex. There is a cloakroom and WC/shower room on the ground floor too and underfloor heating throughout, making things practically perfect in every way.

The snug/study is a great size and neutrally decorated. A beautiful bay window lets in oodles of natural light, giving a feeling of cosy and calm. The perfect place for that family film night or to curl up with a good book and have five minutes’ peace.

Pop into the study with views through its large window over the front of the property and beyond. Just right for that home office and hybrid working environment.

The sensational open concept kitchen is the real hub of this home, showcasing open concept living at its finest. The sleek fitted units, top of the range integrated appliances and glass worktops give a real sense of elegance and style. The spice kitchen/utility room is located just next door for all the practicalities of family life, letting this standout space sing - it is more than capable of catering for family dinners and grown-up dinner parties alike.

The conservatory to the rear of the property is full of light and space, with floor to ceiling windows and patio doors opening directly onto the gorgeous garden. This space is currently set up as the dining room, taking in those magnificent outdoor views. There is a lovely, calm feeling to this open concept space - it brings that lovely idea of the outdoors, indoors to life.

The living area, with its two pairs of French doors, shares wonderful views over the rear of the property and beyond. There is room for the largest of sofas too, making this part of the open plan space cool, inviting and perfect for those evenings in. Tastefully muted tones give this room a real contemporary edge and it rounds out the living space perfectly.

Pop back into the entrance hall and step into the swimming pool complex, where you will find a heated pool, sauna, steam room and space for gym equipment. Three sets of double doors open onto the patio areas outside, enabling all-year round use of this sublime space and the motorised cover keeps everyone safe.

The stunning staircase carries on the feeling of contemporary light and space so evident in this property, and the large landing, with doors to four bedrooms (two en suite), family bathroom and games room, carries on this modern, generous trend.

Open the door to the spacious master bedroom where the large window captures the views out over the rear garden and beyond. The décor is neutral and light and there is room for the biggest of beds with furniture to match. A dressing room with tonnes of storage will house the most well-dressed of us and the spa-like ensuite bathroom complete with corner bath and separate shower is the most elegant space to un wind in, at the end of a busy day.

Return to the landing and pop into bedroom two, where the modern décor is accented to perfection by its large window, giving unrivalled views across the front garden and beyond. A comfortable double with plenty of room for storage, this is a lovely space to bed down for the night – and the en suite shower room makes this space just right for older children or guests alike.

Bedroom three also has that bright, airy feel and garden views to greet you. The natural light brought by its big window makes it perfect for a child’s bedroom or nursery perhaps. Bedroom four are a good size with views to the front of the property. It is light and bright, with plenty of space to relax and get a great night’s sleep.

The incredibly well-appointed family bathroom on this floor, complete with free-standing roll top tub, can keep up with the busiest of mornings with style and grace.

The red-brick-walled games room on the first floor is ready for fun and laughter – check out the full size snooker table!

Take the superb staircase back to the ground floor and step outside into almost an acre of grounds.

The outside space around this home is absolutely stunning. Lawned and patio areas are all great spaces to relax and entertain, and the fenced boundaries with bordering established shrubs and trees give a real sense of exclusivity, privacy and peace. This considerable plot is just the ticket for escaping from the hustle and bustle of daily life and entertaining here is fabulous. Large patio spaces offer al fresco dining whilst lush lawns are perfect for play time. The canopy extending from the pool complex provides a shaded outdoor room just waiting for furniture and a glass of something special with friends.

And just when you thought this tour was over, find the two storey, two-bedroom annex snuggled at the end of the grounds. There are a whole host of possibilities for its use, limited only by your imagination…
