Why are Stoneygate and Knighton such sought-after places to live in Leicester?

Thu 29 September 2022

This is not a new thing for Andrew Granger & Co’s Leicester sales team, but what’s interesting is that the Stoneygate and Knighton areas of Leicester are just as popular with homebuyers as they’ve ever been, if not, more so.

Of course, the range of period and character properties is a huge draw, along with their situation on mainly tree lined roads. There’s also something for everyone in terms of property size, as well as they often have good sized, mature gardens.

Older properties also tend to offer great sized living accommodation and ceiling heights, with the scope to extend and make the space work for you. With the larger gardens also helping to allow for that.

Due to the ongoing popularity of the suburbs of Stoneygate and Knighton, which happen to sit opposite each other on the A6 out of Leicester, the properties hold their value more with the areas therefore being ideal to invest in.

Just a stone’s throw away are the desired areas of Allandale Road in Stoneygate, and Queens Road in Clarendon Park, both with their range of boutiques, independent shops, cafés, bars, and restaurants – perfect for slow paced weekends, and evenings meeting up with family and friends.

For those wanting larger green spaces to explore Knighton and Stoneygate are lucky enough to have Knighton Park, University of Leicester Botanic Garden and Victoria Park nearby which offer woodland walks, ambling trails, playgrounds, fields, outdoor fitness equipment, tennis courts and sculpture tours.

These amenities along with the proximity to a range of excellent local schools, travel links including the East Midlands Railway train service to London, and all that Leicester City Centre offers makes the ideal combination. You’re near, but also just far enough away! Some may even say that living in Stoneygate and Knighton in Leicester is a perfect lifestyle choice.
