Do you like the photos?? Well may be you would you like to view this home personally…..the good thing about NewHome4U is, we OPEN 7 DAYS a WEEK and we’re physically in the office 4U just so that you can, ‘’like no other estate agent in Mold’
Situated right on the edge of Treuddyn, this is an ex-local authority semi detached home dating from the days when builders were men in flat caps and boiler suits, not hard hats and hi-viz jackets, men who really knew their business. I doubt that many of today’s new-build properties will look this good at this age, nor feel as comfortingly solid.
Treuddyn is set on the hills above Mold and the open aspect of this home provides holiday brochure style views across towards Hope Mountain, while for the benefit of young families, the village also offers local shops and its own primary school. The latter within walking distance but thankfully out of earshot….
This home sits on what a map would have you believe is one of the main roads through the village but in actuality is virtually a cul-de-sac. This is because a few yards past the house, the road shrinks to a single track, only one step up from having grass growing out of the middle and carrying so little traffic as to be almost unnoticeable. However don’t worry, it is not the only way into or out of the village as other far larger and more convenient roads are available but it does make the home quiet, peaceful and thus, ideal for children…..or for those without children but with an aversion to noise.
A sizeable front garden has been given over to gravel but retains quite large borders playing host to various flowering shrubs adding a splash of colour and life. This, alongside the brick effect driveway provides a generous parking area, easily sufficient for most needs. A wooden fence with large gate separates the drive from the area to the side of the home, making it possible to seal the rear garden to keep safe any children, dogs or other assorted livestock you may have.
Opening the white UPVC front door with its decorative glass panels allows us into the hall with its quarry tile floor and from where the stairs rise immediately in front of us. To the right is the freshly carpeted lounge with its picture window overlooking the front garden. The centrepiece of this room is the large contrastingly painted chimney breast, with its beautiful wooden mantelpiece, and housing a brand new log burner. So new in fact that it has yet to be actually installed but it is available for sale separately to any incoming buyer and really would make this a very cosy room in the way that only a real fire can.
To the rear of the room another door leads us into the kitchen/dining room where we find a repeat of the quarry tiles from the hall making for a very attractive, practical and virtually indestructible floor. Now the words ‘Kitchen/dining room’ usually fill me with a sense of dread, as all too often rooms described thus, are nothing of the sort. More commonly they are quite adequate kitchens that have been utterly ruined by having an undersized table stuck in one end producing two compromised spaces instead of one workable one….I always ask myself why?
Happily, this is not the case here, where a perfectly adequate square four seat seat of table and chairs does not encroach in any way into the working kitchen space. And this space, with its huge picture window capitalising on the slightly elevated position of the home, takes maximum advantage of the far reaching views. The recently installed kitchen is laid out in a classic ‘U’ shape and provides a very pleasant working environment with plentiful work surfaces, units and washing machine beneath.
Out through the back door to the side of the home where we find access to the rear garden, past an outbuilding attached to the rear elevation. This currently houses the white goods not found in the kitchen and from where it was originally planned by the current owners to knock through into the dining room, thus making it a formal utility room. This remains a possibility and would produce a large ‘L’ shaped room giving a wide choice of possible layouts.
Beyond the outhouse there is a raised patio area between the home and the lawn area, where we also find a large wooden shed which will remain. This shed forms a barrier, concealing the storage tank for the oil fired central heating. The choice of oil for the heating is an arbitrary one, there being no mains gas in the village.
Returning indoors and climbing the stairs we find at the rear of the home, the recently and delightfully re-fitted bathroom. With its practical and warm ceramic effect vinyl flooring and half height tiling throughout, this is a lovely and welcoming room. The suite comprises a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and bath, with a corner mounted shower cubicle inside which, the tiles stretch to the ceiling. The shower itself features twin heads and is fed directly from the mains ensuring a refreshing blast and heated via the oil fired combi boiler in the outhouse.
Adjacent to here is the rear facing bedroom. In the corner is a walk-in storage cupboard which doubles as a fitted wardrobe, freeing up floor space and making for a comfortably sized double room. This, although smaller than the front facing master bedroom has one undeniable advantage; the commanding view. If this was your home would you sacrifice a little space for a view like that? Tough choice….
Finally, overlooking the front garden and road we find the master bedroom. Larger than its twin, this also features a similar walk-in storage cupboard providing the clothes space usually provided by free standing wardrobes and enabling a large chest of drawers and various other smaller items of furniture to take up residence. Undeniably comfortable, this room has much to commend it and rounds off a thoroughly desirable home.
