Tenure: Freehold

Large five bedroom detached modern residence occupying a stunning corner plot gardens, with a wide drive and a double garage. With three living rooms including a 27 Ft lounge and two bathrooms this would prove ideal for a growing family. Must be seen!

A capacious detached double fronted five bedroom family house, occupying a fine position with a particularly large corner garden, and fronting a quiet residential road, away from busy passing traffic. Built in 1970, this substantial property benefits from an attached double garage, PVC double glazed replacement windows, cavity wall insulation and gas heating with panel radiators. This well designed versatile residence is one of only a small number of similar designed houses available in this location and would prove ideal for a growing family or possible two generation living. The extensive surrounding gardens command a high level of privacy by means of a mature well manicured screen of conifer trees, whilst the main garden is laid to lawn beyond a paved sun terrace. In recent years the space between the double garage has been converted into a large store room/ utility room (15'9 x 1010), and a new white Roca ensuite contemporary shower room has been re-modelled. This spacious home comprises a central entrance reception hall (11'5 x 10'8), a super sized lounge (27'0 x 13'9) into a circular shaped bay, a large formal dining room (11'10 x 10'7), a kitchen/breakfast room (13'5 x 10'10), a downstairs cloak room and a separate snug/study. The first floor comprises five good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms, one ensuite. A double width 3/4 car entrance drive leads to a double garage (16'9 x 16'2), and the garage is positioned along side the property, with room to extend!

The Property 
Only a small number of five bedroom purpose built houses were built in Ridgeway, and many of those have been extended right across the double garage to allow for a further master suite which could provide both an ensuite dressing room, a large master bedroom and an ensuite bathroom. In other cases many owners have converted both the kitchen and dining room into a super sized open plan living and kitchen area which would be approximately 21'5 in length. In order to complete these extensions full planning and building regulation approval would be required.

The property is well placed with walking distance to Cefn Onn Country Park, the highly popular Old Cottage Inn and Restaurant and Lisvane Railway Station. 0.7 miles away is the highly regarded Lisvane Primary School, Treetops Play Group and Lisvane Nursery is 1 Mile away.
