The vibrant and multicultural Leicester city centre is only 10 minutes away by car or bus. Leicester has plenty to offer everyone, including the Highcross shopping centre, which has a vast selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Leicestershire has the perfect balance of leafy countryside and buzzing cityscape.

Humberstone offers all the local amenities you will need, whilst also being a short distance from the historic Old Humberstone and its conservation area.

Surrounded by some of the city’s golf courses, including Humberstone Heights, Scraptoft and Leicestershire golf clubs, this is the ideal location for people who enjoy the great outdoors. There are a number of excellent parks and open spaces, tennis courts, as well as a number of leisure centres and pools close by.


Activities, outings, events, cinema nights etc organised by our Estates team


The original Somerville building was built in the 1930s when the movement for encouraging people to spend time outdoors was an important element to designing public buildings.

Thus a unique feature of this Arts and Crafts building are two verandahs. The verandahs are a lovely place to spend time in all year around as well as a great place to enjoy the Landscaped Gardens, paths and summer house.

The Gardens are professionally maintained so sit back and relax, you don’t need to worry about weeding, hedging or mowing unless of course you wish to.

For those with green fingers there is a residents tool shed. There are even raised beds for those who have limited mobility.
