Living in Lane End in Buckley has a great deal to recommend it, from the convenience of the transport links via the nearby A55 to the wide range of local shops and facilities that make it home. The centre of Buckley is within a few minute’s walk, or even less of a drive if you are going to Aldi for the week’s provisions but with the bus passing the door, there is an argument for getting rid of the car altogether. Then you can feel really smug in the pub on a Friday night about your vastly reduced carbon footprint and all you are doing to save the planet for your children; especially as they are well able to walk to school from here. Yeah, good luck with that one….
Sitting on the corner of the junction between Brunswick Road and Church Road we find this double fronted semi detached cottage. Beside the fence fronting onto Church Road is a grass verge, for many years used for parking by the current owners. Although strictly speaking unofficial, this has never presented any problems and we see no reason why this would not continue.
To the front of the home there is a low brick wall beside the pavement, on the inside of which we find an area of crushed gravel. The home itself resembles the classic child’s drawing of ‘my house’, with a central door and five equally spaced windows, two at the bottom and three at the top. The semi-glazed white composite door opens directly into the laminate floored lounge where directly in front of us, the staircase rises. To the right is the main body of the room, a comfortably sized space which is kept pleasantly bright via the front facing window. In the centre of the long wall is a sizeable chimney breast, the fireplace of which is still used to house audio visual equipment. I presume this could be reopened and an open fire or log burner installed if that is your preference but in the meantime it is an eye catching feature.
At the rear of the room we pass beneath the staircase and its usual under stairs storage, providing space for the those things that never seem to find a real home before passing into the dining room. This is a mirror image of the lounge and thus gives all the room you could need, demonstrated by the full sized six seat dining table currently in position and still leaving enough room for other substantial items of furniture.
On the far side of the room another door opens into a side annexe, currently used as further storage with a rear facing window looking out into the patio style garden and opposite, a wooden door opening onto the pavement.
Another door to the rear of the dining room opens into the kitchen, the first section of which has, in the past, been used as a breakfast room area before passing through an archway into the kitchen proper. The presence of the dining room renders this almost redundant however, and I would be tempted to extend the kitchen back into this space which would make a tremendous difference, especially as one corner is already taken up with the tall fridge freezer which rather limits its usefulness as a place to eat.
To one side of the room another door opens into the downstairs cloakroom. This is far larger than I expected and this enables it to fulfil a dual role as there is space not only for the pedestal hand basin and lavatory but clothes drying racks, an automatic washing machine and tumble drier, making a useful utility room.
Through the archway into the kitchen we find a very neat and well thought out space, laid out in the classic ‘U’ configuration that allows the chef to oversee everything from a central position, while having all their equipment readily to hand. There is a gas hob with electric oven beneath and a dishwasher in the units, while mounted on the wall in the corner of the room is the gas combi central heating boiler, ideally placed for ease of maintenance.
Stepping through the back door allows us into the patio style rear garden. Separated into two levels and surrounded by high wooden fencing this provides a pleasant area for relaxing with friends after a long day or, should we ever again get a dry summer, a BBQ. The upper level furthest from the house has a set of wide opening gates in the fence allowing vehicles to enter but, with the parking space the other side of the fence, why would you bother?
Back inside and climbing the stairs we come to small split level landing where, to our left is the door into the first bedroom. Kept cheerful and bright by the large front facing window this is currently configured with two single beds and their associated furniture. Needless to say, this means it would equally make a very comfortable double room but the two singles here at present explains the reason behind the sale, with two teenagers outgrowing the home.
Adjacent to here to the rear of the home is the bathroom. A deceptively large room given a very ‘cottage’ feel by the sloping ceiling with its heavy wooden beams, which compromise headroom a little towards the back but not in any meaningful way. The room remains spacious and offers a suite comprising a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and large corner bath with a hand held shower attachment to the stylish mixer taps.
Opposite here is the main bedroom, where the home continues its ‘cottage’ credentials with the antique stripped wood doors found on all the upstairs rooms. This is slightly larger than the second bedroom by virtue of having utilised the additional space available above the stair well to accommodate some of the bulkier furniture, making for a very comfortable space, which is just what you want in a bedroom.
