Situated virtually opposite Ysgol Bryn Gwalia on Clayton Road this home occupies a very desirable and convenient position. One of a small terrace it puts me in mind of the sort of house a child draws with their first set of crayons. With its prettily laid out front garden and decorative stonework all it needs is roses around the door and a pink cheeked Nain welcoming the children as they pass on their way home from school. Indeed, this affinity with the older generation continues as we enter this tiny but perfectly formed home.
Walking up the shared path across the front gardens of the terrace brings US to what is very obviously the original wooden front door with its massive and ornate hinges and leaded glass insert. Stepping through directly into the living room we are greeted by the quarry tiled floor and exposed brick chimney breast with its enormous oak mantelpiece. Sitting in here is the yet to be connected log burning stove, the addition of which would transform this room into something magical. Actually, rather more Paul Daniels than actual magic, as this unit while looking highly convincing actually runs on mains gas but never mind, it’s easier to keep clean. All the necessary flues are present and the chimney has been swept and prepared so its installation should not present any problems.
Stepping through the door at the rear of this room bring us onto the dining room. Slightly larger than the front living room the floor in here is tiled with far more modern ceramic tiles, while in the corner, another fireplace displays a wooden fire surround and mantelpiece. Contained in here is a living flame effect electric fire, but I am told that behind the façade the original chimney is still there, as is the gas supply destined to feed the ‘log burner’ next door, meaning a more efficient gas fire could easily be installed here as well. On the opposite side of the room to the fire, the stairs rise offering a space for storage beneath while at the rear of the room, an archway leads directly into the kitchen.
Compact. That is the best word for this kitchen though having said that, everything necessary is here and while two cooks would rapidly resort to homicide, for a single chef it is convenience personified. Clever touches make this possible, such as the mounting of the microwave on the wall above the main cooker; space saving and practical. Room has even been found for an automatic washing machine but I suppose we should not be too surprised. You only have to look at the way boat designers fit the seemingly impossible into confined spaces to realise what can be done with enough thought.
Another door leads from here, past the back door to the rear yard and into the bathroom. Alright, shower room; even the Tardis has its limits…. This is another triumph of planning. Managing to fit a hand basin mounted atop a vanity and storage unit, a lavatory and a full sized walk-in shower cubicle into somewhere your eyes tell you should be impossible. The result is a perfectly functional bathroom but how? I kept expecting Debbie McGee to step out of a cupboard.
Outside the back door is a small paved seating area, easily big enough for a family BBQ. I say that with confidence, having seen the BBQ standing in the corner, beside the sizeable garden shed. An area of maintenance free astro-turf plays host to a very tempting looking hanging sunchair and beside which, a small rockery contains flowers to add a splash of colour. Finally, at the top of the garden, is a large canvas shed which I took to be some sort of greenhouse, though driving rain prevented closer inspection. There is far more room here than you imagine and the current owners seem very adept at utilising every last bit of it.
Back indoors and up the stairs we find the two bedrooms. The rearmost of which is floored in wood laminate, a theme that continues up the wall on the stairs side of the room. This is covered in tongue and groove planking, with two separate storage cupboards set into it. These free up enough space to make this a workable double bedroom if desired, while the large rear window offers views across the adjacent gardens.
The front bedroom features a genuine wood floor and is a far larger room altogether. Providing enough space for two sizeable wardrobes and a chest of drawers as well as the double bed while still not using all the floor. Another feature making this room a little bit special is the charming open hearth, still capable of running an open fire if desired. A real fire in the bedroom? A final small reminder of days gone by.
