The two bedroom terrace tends to be the ‘go to’ choice for the majority of first time buyers, something they can initially afford but which offers the scope to make it into something so much more. Having put their own stamp firmly upon it they then enjoy their home until nature takes its course, children come along or family circumstances change and suddenly, the dream is simply no longer big enough. With this home however, the additional bedroom on the upper floor gives the flexibility to ensure it provides your newly altered family with the home you always wanted; giving the future a certainty that is rare in these difficult times.
King Edward Street lies in the heart of Shotton a couple of streets away from the railway station, adding another layer of convenience for those living here while still tied to their daily commute. Being in the centre of the town and all its shopping opportunities also brings into question the need for car ownership, another substantial saving for a struggling first time buyer.
There is a small walled garden to the front of the home, laid to mainly to lawn surrounded by decorative crushed gravel and with various small shrubs to add colour. The semi glazed wood composite front door opens into the inner hallway where the stairs rise in front of us. Beside the stairs is a door into the large open plan living area. Originally two rooms and connected by an archway, this provides a different feel and atmosphere in each section making the home seem bigger than it actually is. The front section has a large window overlooking the front garden and is given a cosy ‘cottage’ feel by the electric faux log burner sitting in its wooden fire surround.
The rear section is slightly larger, giving space for relaxation or children to play and with a painted raw brick chimney breast that plays host to a very convincing living flame electric fire. At the rear of the room a semi glazed door allows us through to the kitchen, where this home reveals how special it really is.
This features an attractive ceramic floor and is beautifully fitted out, providing all the modern touches without which we apparently cannot live today, along with copious amounts to stylish work tops and storage units. The ceramic floor continues through the arch at the rear of the room and into a spacious dining area. Semi divided from the kitchen by a half height wall, this is roomy enough for a full sized table to fit with ease before a full width set of French doors opens onto the home’s ace card.
Lacking the space for a meaningful garden, outside the French doors we find a large area of Astroturf beneath a solid roofed veranda perfect for relaxing under and kept useable long into the night by the steel chiminea with its large chimney stack passing through the roof. Beyond here various areas of paving and further Astroturf contain several wooden outbuildings which could be utilised for a variety of roles.
Moving upstairs we come first of all to the rear facing bathroom where once again it is hard not to be impressed by the sheer quality of this home. Decorative wooden panelling adorns two of the walls, complimenting the practical faux wood vinyl flooring and the suite, which comprises a pedestal hand basin with storage beneath a lavatory and bath with mixer taps. In the corner opposite the bath stands a large walk-in shower cubicle with its electric shower.
Adjacent to there and also rear facing is the smallest bedroom, though do not be mislead into thinking it is in any way small. With dimensions that would promote it to the rank of master bedroom in any new build estate home this is a very comfortably proportioned double bedroom with ample space for the most demanding of occupants.
Moving to the front of the home we find the actual master bedroom which, at over 11 feet by nearly 16 is unusual in being actually worthy of the name. This room easily accommodates all the free standing furniture anyone could realistically want and does so while still leaving large areas of free space which after all, is the ultimate luxury.
Back onto the landing, where we find another staircase, this time turned, climbing up to the third bedroom in the attic space. Offering space that rivals that of the master bedroom downstairs and beautifully lit by the roof mounted ‘Velux’ window this is a room that many teenagers would kill for. Given real character by the way the roof line follows that of the actual roof above and making features of the lateral support beams this is not only a special bedroom, but is what provides this home’s level of flexibility. It is an affordable home for now, and will continue to be so long into the future, whatever that future holds.
