Leicester may not be the first place you think of when it comes to tranquil waterfront locals for property but, thanks to the canal network and the river soar, there are some gems out there if you’re willing to look.
Here’s two Leicester-based homes located near water currently on the market that we think are particularly tempting investment opportunities that will attract the best tenants.
Dyersgate, Bath Lane, Leicester
A lovely two-bedroom apartment situated on the second-floor of Dyersgate Apartments, in Bath Lane.
We reckon this is a very picturesque option and is close to the Holiday Inn and the city centre. Available for £170,000, it boasts a large kitchen/diner and a 'four-piece' bathroom suite.
We can’t recommend enough the properties balcony that overlooks the River Soar making for a great place to relax and the chance to idyllic sunsets shimmering across the water.
The Quay, Mountsorrel
This £600,000 four, potentially five-bedroom home is in a private gated development which overlooks the 'boat basin' of the River Soar and the surrounding countryside of Mountsorrel. Designed by Black Hawk
Properties, the development is based on a Norfolk fishing village with Dutch architectural influence, resulting in a striking mix of designs.
The lounge/dining room has solid oak flooring with underfloor heating. Double French doors lead into the rear garden, while the kitchen is fitted with 'an array' of 'bespoke' features.
There are three bedrooms on the first-floor, one with en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom leads to a 'stunning' balcony area and an en-suite. There are two further bedrooms on the next floor, one with en-suite.
Outside the property has great views of the river soar and countryside. There is private off-road parking and the rear garden has a patio area and planted borders.
Sky Blue Homes definitely recommends adding some diversity to your portfolio with a fantastic waterfront property.
