Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Plot 2 A handsome, double fronted detached five bedroom house with well planned accommodation arranged around a central hall. The house makes indulgent use of its space with just two bedroom suites on the entire first floor; the three further bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the second floor.

On a landmark site, situated on the border of sought-after Pontcanna and Llandaff, Portabella brings you an iconic selection of truly exceptional, five and six bedroom family houses of era-defining quality and style.
Externally, the style borrows from the Regency row within which the development sits, an architectural style unusual to Cardiff and one which predates the city's wealth. While the Regency towns were flourishing, Cardiff was in its infancy - Coal was Cardiff's catalyst and it is for this reason that housing in the city is largely Victorian or later.

That's what makes this tiny Regency pocket all the more special. The fact that it sits within the shadows of the magnificent Howell's school and casts an elevated eye across Llandaff Fields to the city centre makes it more so. In fact, walking the one and a half miles into the city centre on a sunny day would enable a coffee or brunch in trendy Pontcanna, followed by a stroll through the park and along the river, before popping out in front of the Castle, just moments from the shops.

Portabella, Churchills

Seven, three storey houses of uncompromising quality

They sit within the shadows of the magnificent Howell's school and cast an elevated eye across Llandaff Fields to the city centre. Walking the one and a half miles into the city centre on a sunny day would enable a coffee or brunch in trendy Pontcanna, followed by a stroll through the park and along the river, before popping out in front of the Castle, just moments from the shops.


THE HOUSES

Externally, the style borrows from the Regency row within which the development sits; an architectural style unusual to Cardiff and one which predates the city's wealth. While the Regency towns were flourishing, Cardiff was in its infancy - Coal was Cardiff's catalyst and it is for this reason that housing in the city is largely Victorian or later.

That's what makes this tiny Regency pocket all the more special and, whilst inspired by the formal architectural style of its surroundings, the accommodation has been designed to communicate and flow in a considered, modern way. They are large houses but it felt old-fashioned and unnecessary for them to have a series of rooms, each with its own defined purpose - that's not how we live these days. Instead we concentrated on how the space would feel. We wanted the reception hall to set the tone for the house; the atrium style gallery to give a contemporary opulence; and the wide, turning staircase to create drama - all of these combining to give a wow factor straight away. They say you decide to buy a home within 17 minutes - we're aiming for the first five.

SPECIFICATION

LIVING

The principal drawing room to each of these houses is of suitably grand proportions including tall ceilings. Each of these elegant rooms has a tall bay window allowing light to flood in and they all benefit from a quality stone fireplace with a feature wood burning stove. The herringbone wood flooring continues from the hall through to the drawing room.

KITCHENS

We know that the kitchens form the heart of the home for families these days. In many ways this is where our interior space planning started - whatever else went in, a large family sized kitchen, with space to live and dine, was one of the top priorities and a central island essential. The kitchens are beautifully crafted Italian cabinets sourced from a London supplier and incorporating the latest design touches. Naturally, polished stone worktops and a full host of quality, integrated appliances are included in every kitchen.

The kitchen is not just about the preparation of meals though, it's about sitting down to enjoy them in the dining area, or retiring with coffee to the sitting area afterwards - All of this within one large, light, open plan suite where glazed doors seamlessly communicate indoor and outdoor living, allowing free-form family life.

BEDROOMS

With the houses offering five or six bedrooms across two floors, there are a variety of configurations possible. Many of the bedrooms feature en-suite facilities and several benefit from dressing rooms or walk-in wardrobes.


The master bedroom suites are designed with decadence in mind. Not just a principal bedroom suite but an oasis of indulgence to which to retreat. The large and luxurious bedroom flows seamlessly into a spacious dressing room and on to the opulent bathroom - a free-flowing suite of harmony and extravagance.

BATHROOMS

The bathrooms and shower rooms each have a bespoke design solution incorporating high quality Laufen fittings with designer taps and complementing tiles. Each bathroom has been individually designed to exude sophistication by infusing luxe modernity with period elegance.

OUTSIDE

Outside, each of the houses has designated parking for a minimum of two vehicles, with Plots 1 and 5 each benefitting from a double garage. All gardens are landscaped to include turfed lawn beyond a sandstone terrace.

AUDIO VISUAL

Each of the houses comes with its own Sonos system to enjoy the very best in cutting-edge music and movies. The drawing room features the Sonos Playbar system for an immersive TV experience and there are wired ceiling speakers in the kitchen, dining, snug and master bedroom suite. All of this is wired into the Sonos system giving you easy app controlled music throughout.

We wanted each of the houses to have its own system but the wired infrastructure is such that any system could be expanded to suit individual needs. Please ask us for more information.


SECURITY

Home security adds peace of mind as well as protecting things when you're away. Each of the houses is also equipped with an intruder alarm and there are CCTV cameras fitted to the front and rear of each house which are viewable online via an app even when you're not at home.
