Buckley is a sought after location with a wide variety of sizes and types of home available but even so, apartments remain something of a rarity. More usually formed from larger houses sporting conversions of varying quality it is even rarer to find something purpose built and displaying a standard that many larger building concerns would envy.
Situated directly opposite the Fire Station in the heart of Buckley, this apartment is almost the definition of convenience being within yards of both two supermarkets and the bustling high street. However although centrally positioned it manages to provide that Holy Grail of city centre living; plentiful off road parking along with an outdoor sitting area for relaxing after a long day.
Occupying the first floor above a thriving pet shop, ensuring quiet and well behaved neighbours, this apartment manages to amaze through its sheer dimensions. We approach via a short drive from the main road which takes us to a parking area to the rear from where a steel staircase rises to a balcony lying at 45 degrees to the building producing a triangular patio area overlooked by the front doors of this and the adjacent apartment.
Opening the front door places us in a long hall, which runs away in either direction. Taking the left hand arm the hall turns sharply right where we find the door into the bathroom. This is a triangular room which, although sounding odd works extremely well, providing space by the bucket load and offering a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and bath with a mains water fed shower above, heated directly by the gas combi which also powers the central heating. The feeling of space is enhanced by the amount of daylight from the large frosted window and the reflective qualities of the all white tiled walls which also provide a lovely contrast with the dark grey ceramic tiled floor.
The remaining door in this arm of the hallway opens into the, again, ceramic floored kitchen. Although not huge the room is adequately large for the demands likely to be placed on it by a home with at most four occupants, and sufficiently well equipped to do so in style. There are high quality wood fronted fitted units to three walls, with the wall beside the door having an additional section jutting out into the room to form a rudimentary breakfast bar. Opposite here the units have a recess perfectly sized to accept a tall fridge/freezer beside the gas hob, with its electric ovens beneath. Although the machine is not present, there is all the necessary plumbing for an automatic washer beneath one of the large work tops.
Returning along the hall and past the front door brings us to the first of the bedrooms and the first real surprise of this attractive home. For those of us fed on a diet of the current crop of new build homes on modern estates, this room is a revelation. If we were to place a king size bed, twin bedside cabinets, two large free standing wardrobes, a couple of chests of drawers, a dressing table and a Kirby trouser press in here, there would still be ample room for a fairly extensive Scalextric set on the floor. This is not a bedroom for those of an agoraphobic nature.
Recovering from the surprise of the size of the previous bedroom, we find the trick repeated in the remaining one. If either of these rooms have a weakness, it is to be found through the windows where the view is restricted by the close proximity of the wall to the building next door. Having said that, most of your time in this room would be spent asleep so is the view really an issue? Probably not and even if it is important to you, it seems a small price to pay for accommodation as spacious as this.
Finally we come in to the lounge. Again, this is remarkable for its generous dimensions and great levels of light courtesy of the two large box bay windows overlooking the front. That the room lacks a focal point in the form of a fireplace of any sort merely serves to make it feel even bigger than it is, were that necessary. As it stands, the room is easily capable of assuming a dual role of lounge/dining room if desired or, an indulgent lounge offering the one luxury that no amount of clever design can falsify; space.
From here and in compensation for the lack of any meaningful views from the bedrooms we are offered a panorama that stretches out beyond the town towards Hope Mountain, a reminder that even here in the heart of the town, we are never far from the open spaces.
