Village living has many appeals but to take advantage of them often entails a sacrifice in convenience in your everyday life. However if you are coming from a larger city, this loss of facilities can be minimised by a move to Caergwrle, which is perhaps the most lavishly equipped village of its size that I have ever come across. How many locations can offer 2 supermarkets, a deli, a butcher, traditional greengrocer, a Chinese, an Indian, a florist, hairdresser, chemist, optician, garage, the list goes on… I mention this simply to demonstrate that this is a splendid place to live and having dealt with that, I’ll move on to a splendid home in which to do it in.
Situated on Derby Road, a matter of yards from the High Street but far enough to ensure peace from the bustle, we find this neat row of town houses. Approached up three steps through a small front garden filled with flowering shrubs and decorative gravel, we enter via an enclosed brick porch built out from the front elevation.
This porch, accessed through a solid wood front door provides something of an ‘air-lock’ and gives somewhere for outdoor clothing and muddy shoes, thus protecting the interior carpets.
A semi glazed inner door allows us into the surprisingly large lounge, with the open staircase immediately in front of us. This comfortable space is kept bright and cheerful by the front facing picture window and offers easily enough room for substantial pieces of furniture to be chosen without fear of them overpowering the room. The rising staircase along one wall provides something of a natural barrier between here and the dining room, giving the welcome illusion of a separate room.
The dining room is a useful size, something quite unexpected in homes of this type with its large window overlooking the rear garden. The room would also accommodate a dining table worthy of the title, something many fail to achieve. Turning to the right as we enter, we come to the door into the kitchen.
** an idea may be to knock the dining room and kitchen wall through to create a larger open plan room – this is more in keeping with todays lifestyle, where you can sit and entertain friends and family members without feeling left out – however, we would recommend you seeking advice from a professional builder before you undertake any work that we may suggest **
So to the kitchen, while admittedly compact in size manages to offer everything you need and keep it within easy reach. Set out in a ’U’ shape with a void for a tall fridge/freezer greeting us on entry. The units with their matching overhead storage cupboards line the far wall, with the electric hob in the centre, its oven beneath and a void with plumbing for an automatic washing machine completing the cast. The final upper cupboard beside the window reveals the gas combi central heating boiler. The apparent anomaly between the gas heating and electric hob is explained by the fact that when gas was installed in the street, British Gas would only provide a connection for heating, any cooker connection was to be paid for separately by the householder and the then owner was unwilling to justify the additional cost.
Stepping through the back door into the fenced rear garden we find a little haven of peace and privacy. Not huge but easily maintained with its decorative gravel surface, this gives sufficient space for some splashes of colour from various plants, somewhere to sit and enjoy the sunshine and perhaps even a BBQ. After all, what more do you want? Down the side of the home is a small wooden store shed, providing somewhere to store all those things you probably no longer use but cannot bear to throw away. The rear fence to the garden has a central gate which gives access to the car park at the rear and its two dedicated spaces. If Caergwrle has a down-side it is parking but not, it seems, with this home.
Returning indoors and climbing the open-tread staircase, turning to the front of the home we come to the smallest bedroom. As is expected in any three bedroom home, this is undeniably small, with a single bed all but filling it. Saying that, it would make an ideal nursery, office or dressing room, so versatility is its watchword.
Adjacent to here is the master bedroom and while ‘master’ may sound a bit pretentious in a home of this type, this goes a long way towards justifying it. Kept bright by the large picture window overlooking the road, there is adequate space for a large double bed with matching bedside cabinets, all overseen by a huge wardrobe providing all the storage you could realistically ask for.
At the rear of the home is the remaining bedroom. Obviously not as big, this is still a double room though admittedly a bit short on floor space. However this is made up for by the large fitted wardrobe and additional storage in the linen airing cupboard alongside it.
Finally there is the bathroom. This is to be honest, fairly standard fare but neatly executed none the less. Fully tiled in white, there is a heated towel rail/radiator, pedestal hand basin, lavatory and bath with glass screen and an electric shower over.
