Property Description

Set within a conservation area, on a stunning plot approaching two acres, an elegant and substantial period family home on arguably one of Kirby Muxloe's most prestigious addresses. The property which retains a host of beautiful original features including fireplaces and stained glazed windows, has undergone partial refurbishment and now must be considered an incomplete project.

Moel Llys was built in 1902 for the Kendall family, local wealthy umbrella manufacturers and latterly became a school in the 1940's, before being converted back to residential use in 2012. The property's first floor has been renovated to a high standard with the ground floor not in a liveable condition, with the second floor offering a temporary kitchen and living accommodation.

LOCATION

Forest Drive has long been regarded as one of the most favoured locations within the County and is typified by many substantial early Edwardian family homes of distinctive style and character. Kirby Muxloe is located some eight miles west of Leicester city centre and offers a good range of amenities catering for most day-to-day needs. Kirby Fields has long been regarded as one of the prime locations within Leicestershire. The village offers excellent communications to road networks including the western distributor road and junction 21A of the M1 within one and a half miles, with Leicester city centre providing a wider range of facilities, the professional quarters and mainline railway station with regular services to London St Pancras.

ACCOMMODATION

The property offers vast and versatile accommodation which can be configured in a variety of ways to suit any purchaser. The ground floor is in need of renovation and offers huge potential, currently comprising a porch, reception hall, a number of large reception rooms and other smaller ancillary rooms. To the first floor are four double bedrooms (three with beautifully appointed en-suite bathrooms) and a dressing room. To the second floor are four bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, family bathroom, separate WC and additional living spaces which can be configured to suit. To the rear of the main dwelling there is an amenities block comprising boiler room, store rooms and WC.This property must be viewed to appreciate the potential and accommodation on offer.

OUTSIDE

Moel Llys is approached via a long, tree-lined tarmac driveway accessed via twin metal gates leading to a large car standing area with ample space for a dozen vehicles. The property occupies a superb plot of approximately two acres comprising sweeping lawns, a tarmac play area and glorious gardens with mature trees, shrubs and plants. To the rear of the main dwelling there is a large coach house providing ground floor garaging; the first floor large reception room could be utilised as a separate annexe, games room, gym or home office.

DIRECTIONAL NOTE

Proceed out of Leicester via the A47 Hinckley Road in a westerly direction, crossing over the Braunstone crossroads. Upon entering the village of Kirby Muxloe take a right hand turn at the traffic light complex into Kirby Lane and first right into Forest Drive where the property can be found on the right hand side just past Linden Lane.
