SUMMARY
A large five bedroom detached family house with extensive living space including a capacious kitchen & dining room 21 FT x 25 FT, a snug/study, a principle lounge, and two bathrooms. Within the sizeable gardens are both a double garage and an attached Coach House with investment potential.


DESCRIPTION
A large detached double fronted five bedroom family residence, occupying a fine position fronting a wide residential road well placed for access to local shops and stores, and convenient for both Birchgrove Railway Station, Thornhill Cross Roads and Rhiwbina Garden Village. This substantial property benefits a private 3/4 car entrance drive, screened by mature trees, a further side entrance drive, a sizeable level enclosed secluded sunny rear garden, and both a double garage and an attached stone Coach House, with historic planning in full for conversion into a versatile self contained guest house/leisure complex. The property has been greatly extended providing a versatile family space ideal for most growing families including a enviable open plan fitted kitchen, breakfast room and dining room (25'2 x 20'10) L shaped and allowing ample space for the housing of a large dining table with eight chairs and a two seater and single seater sofa. Double glazed french doors open onto the well planned rear gardens, whilst the ground floor living space also includes a down stairs cloak room, a bay fronted sitting room and a separate principle lounge with wide bay window and an open fireplace.

The Property
The property includes white PVC double glazed windows, a modern electric consumer unit, a modern roof replaced circa 2006, gas heating with panel radiators (new Worcester Combi boiler 2019 located in the cloak room), wood block floors, oak panelled internal doors, picture rails and coved ceilings.

The first floor living space is approached by a wide returning spindle balustrade staircase leading to a central landing, and providing independent access to each of the five bedrooms, four of which are double in size. The master bedroom includes an ensuite shower room and an ensuite walk in wardrobe,, whilst a modern white family bathroom is off the main landing. There is also a large roof space providing a similar foot print to the first floor, allowing scope to extend further subject to the necessary planning applications and building regulation requirements. A special investment feature is offered from the double garage (25'6 x 15'3) and the attached Coach House (21'11 x 17'5). A planning application with architect drawings was submitted circa 2010 which was passed. The application has since lapsed however there are full drawings available in the Llanishen office for inspection and subject to notice collection. The opportunity here would allow for a charming self contained one bedroom unit which could be used as a granny annex, a guest suite or a leisure complex. The property is available with no chain. Must be seen!
