Full descriptionCIVIC CENTRE – PRIVATE ROAD ON TREE LINED LAWNED GARDENS WITHIN CATHAYS PARK CONSERVATION AREA. This is a truly outstanding detached ‘Georgian’ style double fronted residence, located in one of Cardiff’s most exclusive and sought-after locations, just a short stroll from City Hall, Alexandra Park and the Castle Grounds, offering convenient and immediate access to all of Cardiff’s shopping, leisure and public amenities. Set back on a prestigious private tree lined Square, with in/out listed colonnade entrance, and wide tree lined lawns which are decorated with ornate ironwork archway street lights, Queen Anne Square properties are rarely on the market and offer much privacy and seclusion in a location unrivalled throughout the city.
2 Queen Anne Square, built in mid 1930's, is fully detached with a grand double frontage displaying beautiful original bay sash windows, a pillared entrance porch and first floor wrought iron balcony. The house sits on a generous plot, with driveway parking, detached garage, open front lawn and a beautiful private rear garden. Having remained in the hands of the same family since being built, the property has been lovingly and meticulously maintained, retaining sumptuous original features throughout. Each of the square’s 31 houses are individually designed, and follow a layout based on Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia, commissioned by the Marquess of Bute to a model inspired with the assistance of architect Howard Williams. The freehold title includes a share of the management company owning and managing the communal land within Queen Anne Square.
FRONTAGE Approached by the attractive tree lined private road to reach an open front garden with well-manicured lawn, with driveway to left and pathway to right, leading to an imposing traditional Georgian door with glazing to the sides and fanlight over, sitting beneath a pretty wrought iron terrace.
