DESCRIPTION
A large well designed detached five bedroom executive modern residence, set back with a large and private corner garden with extensive room to extend if required. This magnificent family home is double fronted in design, boasting ample private parking plus a detached double garage. Built in 2003 by Messrs Barratt Homes, completed with a 10 year N H B C guarantee, approached by a central hall with an open fronted porch, leading to a downstairs cloak room with a stylish white suite, a versatile study/snug, a 24 ft lounge with french doors and a contemporary stone fireplace, a large 16 ft formal dining room also with PVC french doors and a wide splayed bay, a well fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, a utility room and a separate family room. Internal doors are white panel traditional style with regency handles, whilst the main lounge and the dining room feature elegant cornice to both ceilings. Other features include gas heating with panel radiators, an intruder alarm and white PVC double glazed windows and outer doors throughout. The first floor comprises five double size bedrooms and three modern white bathrooms, two ensuite, with each of the first floor rooms enjoying views across the surrounding area, particularly from the rear first floor level which has a lovely outlook across the large enclosed gardens and onto open fields and countryside.

The Property
The property occupies approximately a third of an acre with room to both the rear and the side to extend further, ideal should a discerning buyer wish to convert the double garage to more living space, with space outside to erect a new double garage. This would of course be subject to the necessary planning applications and building regulation approvals. The rear gardens are both level and enclosed by close timber panel fencing, and comprise a large shaped main lawn, a large children's play area with soft bark, and a secret garden with washing line etc. The property enjoys an ideal location, with a post code catchment for Rhiwbina, allowing a choice of excellent local schools and amenities. Within Thornhill is a local Sainsbury super store, a pharmacy, a Doctors Surgery and a local very popular primary school.

Schools And Church Locations
There are three schools within the ward - Rhiwbeina Primary School, Llanishen Fach Primary and Greenhill School. Llanishen Fach is the only school in Cardiff which sends its Year 6 pupils to two main secondary schools, Whitchurch High, and Llanishen High. Despite local campaigning since the 1960's, Rhiwbina currently has no Welsh-medium school. As a result, some local children travel to Ysgol y Wern and Ysgol Melin Griffith to receive their education.

The area has a large number of churches and chapels including All Saints (Church in Wales), Beulah (URC), Bethesda (Independent), Rhiwbina Baptist Church, Bethany (Baptist), Bethel (Methodist), The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and Beulah United Reformed Church, Rhiwbina village.

Transport
There are three railway stations located within Rhiwbina. The principal station is Rhiwbina railway station, located behind the library in the heart of the village. The other two stations are Birchgrove railway station, located in the east of the ward, and Whitchurch railway station, Cardiff in the west. These two stations were built (as their names suggest) to service other adjacent areas, but the expansion of Rhiwbina and its clear demarcation from Whitchurch has meant that all three stations are now located within the boundaries of the ward. All of the stations are on the Cardiff Central to Coryton Line, and were built by the Cardiff Railway Company. Presently, services continue through west Cardiff to Radyr.

Cardiff Bus services 21 (Central Station - Gabalfa - Birchgrove - Whitchurch - Coryton - Rhiwbina) and 23 (Central Station - Gabalfa - Birchgrove - Rhiwbina - Coryton - Whitchurch) frequently run through the area. Veolia Transport Cymru also ran service 22 (Heath Hospital - Rhiwbina) but this route ceased running in 2013.

Heol-y-Deri is the main road leading through the district. Rhiwbina is situated between the A 470 (Cardiff City Centre to M4 J32) and A469 (Cardiff city centre to Caerphilly.

Sport & Leisure
Rhiwbina Recreational Club forms the centre of activities within the community, and is home to both male and female Bowls teams, a Chess Club, Tennis and Squash Clubs and the Highfields Amateur Radio Club.

Rhiwbina RFC, the local rugby union club operates sides from Under 7 to Under 16, plus a youth and three senior teams. The First XV was promoted to Division 4 East after an unbeaten League run in Season 2006/07. The club operates from the Rhiwbina Recreational Club, but has plans to build a new clubhouse in nearby Caedelyn Park.

Rhiwbina Squash Club has six men's teams playing in the Premier, South Wales and South Glamorgan Leagues. The club also has a Junior and Ladies section. Rhiwbina Squash Club were the 2011 South Wales Premier League Champions.
