I make no bones about this one, it needs a total refurbishment but once completed would provide a family home to be proud of and, with its huge garden to the side and rear would be a great place to bring up a young family. It is in fundamentally sound condition and the work needed, while extensive, is largely cosmetic, though possibly beyond all but the keenest DIYer. Having said that, look at the price….
Situated within walking distance of the cottage hospital and with a convenient footpath leading through to a small parade of local shops, is the cul-de-sac of Cedar Grove. It is this cul-de-sac status that makes this an ideal family home for those with young children, something further enhanced by the huge garden allowing them to run wild in complete safety.
Entering the hallway, the senses are assaulted by the sheer purpleness of it all. Not a real word I know but trust me, it is just so purple I can’t describe it any other way. Embossed wallpaper stretches as far as the eye can see, adorned with more purple emulsion the B&Q sell in a single year. However it is only paint, easily addressed and as I said, the home is ripe for refurbishment.
To our left is the lounge. To be brutal, this shows signs of decorative neglect but is kept bright and cheerful by the large picture window and the light wood laminate flooring. There is a cavity in the chimney breast protruding from which is a gas pipe, meaning that a replacement gas fire could be retrofitted.
Moving to the rear of the home we come into the kitchen/diner. Being honest this needs completely stripping out and starting again which sounds a disaster but there is always a plus to be taken from any situation. What you have here is a very big space that would lend itself to becoming a brilliant place for family gatherings, because however clever your design ideas, there’s no substitute for space. A walk-in pantry lies to the right hand side of the room, providing all the storage you could ever need.
Opening the back door leaves us facing the brick outhouses where three doors conceal an outside lavatory, coal shed come general store and finally, a room big enough to be a handy workshop. These are connected to the home by a covered walkway doubling as a poor man’s conservatory, although this is in such a state of disrepair as to be beyond saving. It does however provide the template for what could be achieved with a replacement, forming a pleasant and weather proof sitting area from which to admire the garden.
There is so much you could do here to make this area something really special and incorporate it more into the home.
Leaving here and moving into the garden itself, things take a definite turn for the better. A huge triangular open space bordered by wood panel fencing to all sides this is the ideal place for frolicking children, always assuming you can wrench them away from their electronic devices.
Back inside and moving upstairs, we find exactly what we expected to find; the classic three bedroom semi layout with the smallest bedroom above the entrance hall. This is actually larger than many of its type and would make a comfortable single bedroom either for a child or occasional visitor.
Beside here and also overlooking the front of the home is the first of the larger bedrooms. I hesitate to designate it as the master, as both the remaining bedrooms are of very much a similar size. In common with the majority of the rest of the home, this looks to have not been redecorated for decades and I would not be surprised to find re-plastering necessary when the wallpaper finally relinquishes its grip on the walls. It does however offer a large walk in cupboard which is very handy.
The rear facing room offers more of the same, but with a different view. Similarly it also offers a walk in cupboard but this time with a door that appears to have been repeatedly closed with a hammer. Why this should have been necessary defeats me but it would clearly benefit from being replaced.
Opposite here is, in common with many semis of this era, a separate lavatory before we finally come to the bathroom. In common with the kitchen sink, this would need placement as a matter of urgency as indeed would the lavatory next door having been around the block several times and being extremely tired. Having said all that, it is a renovation and refurbishment project and we should not lose sight of the fact that the property is structurally sound and once completed would become a very desirable family home either for rental or occupation.
