Knighton Villa is located on the exclusive Knighton Church Road in the fashionable and highly regarded leafy suburb of South Knighton, lying approximately 2 miles to the south of the city centre.

Knighton Villa is a superb and deceptively spacious palisaded Victorian villa located on the exclusive Knighton Church Road in the fashionable and highly regarded leafy suburb of South Knighton. The property has undergone an extensive and sympathetic programme of refurbishment and alterations providing a stylish, individual and versatile home for modern-day living. The living accommodation includes: an attractive sitting room (sun trap), a second sitting room with open fire, a 23 foot open-plan dining kitchen, a separate downstairs WC and washbasin, a delightful and attractive galleried first floor landing providing access to three bedrooms to the first floor, two of which are very generous in size, as well as the shared bathroom. The property enjoys an attractive, deep, southerly-facing rear garden, enjoying a pleasant rear leafy aspect.

I do hope you enjoy your stay at our villa. My husband and I purchased Knighton Villa in 2008, where we enjoyed a number of years of occupancy as our main residence, undertaking much of the refurbishment and redecoration ourselves as we lived there. Please feel free to enjoy the villa and the surrounding amenities, and I do hope that you enjoy your stay.

Knighton Villa is well served for everyday amenities and services including renowned public and private schooling, Leicester City Centre, The University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Leicester Racecourse, plus the Leicester Royal Infirmary and the Leicester General hospitals. It is conveniently located for nearby Oadby, Queens Road and Allandale Road which all have specialist shops, bars, boutiques and restaurants, as well as both the Leicester City Football Club and Leicester Tigers grounds.
