A superbly refurbished Victorian semi-detached house near the City


30 Cambrian View is a handsome period semi-detached house dating from about 1853. The property is set back from the road and sits in an elevated position, commanding extensive views of the Welsh hills. The current owners have carried out a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment including the installation of a new kitchen, bathrooms, roof, windows and the addition of a garden room. The renovation has been undertaken with skill and taste and the property has been restored to its former grandeur with many period features reinstated including fireplaces and a Minton tiled floor in the reception hall which matches the design of the original.

The house is laid out over three floors and is entered via a vestibule which leads through into a spacious reception hall with a very attractive Minton tiled floor, original carved mahogany staircase and an atrium above which floods the hall with an abundance of natural light. The principal reception rooms are arranged on either side of the hallway. The kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with a range of wall and floor units designed by The Cabinet Room in Tarporley and there is a cast iron fireplace in the breakfast area. The drawing room is an elegant, well balanced space ideal for entertaining with generous proportions and a high ceiling indicative of the period. There are French doors out to the garden and double doors through to the garden room. The garden room is a recent addition (2012) and provides a lovely extension of the entertaining area, it has a vaulted glass ceiling and French doors to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a music room, dining room, utility room, larder and cloakroom. To the rear of the house is a separate staircase leading to the upper levels. This could be useful if somebody wished to use the third floor as accommodation for a nanny or dependent relative.

On the second floor is an impressive master bedroom suite with dressing room with built-in wardrobes and access to the en suite bathroom. The master bedroom has dual aspect windows, wooden flooring and a pretty cast iron fireplace with decorative mantelpiece. There are a further four bedrooms on this level and a family bathroom.

On the third floor are three bedrooms, a bathroom and cloakroom and this area could be converted, subject to the relevant planning permission into ancillary accommodation.

The house is approached via a tree-lined gravel driveway which provides parking for a number of cars. To the rear of the house is a garden with established shrubs, trees and flower beds and landscaped terracing. There is a flagged patio and various seating areas.
