There are villages throughout Flintshire that are viewed through envious eyes as somewhere that “wow, I could live there” and Lixwm is one such place. Sadly it is also beyond the means of many and that is why, about 10 years ago permission was given for the building of a section of “affordable housing”. In this instance however, rather than the slightly cheapskate little boxes you may expect, we actually find a very attractive cul-de-sac of modern 2 and 3 bedroom family homes situated right in the heart of the village. That these give the opportunity for younger families and those without massive disposable incomes the chance to live here is brilliant and who wouldn’t want their children to grow up with views of open countryside? When built, and in accordance with the government’s scheme, these homes were offered on a shared ownership basis but his particular property is wholly owned 100%
Situated right at the head of the cul-de-sac and at the end of a terrace of four we find what is, in effect, this semi detached home. A drive runs past the flower and shrub bearing front garden and provides parking for several cars before the substantial wooden fence dividing this from the rear garden. A lockable shed sits to the front of the fence providing storage for outdoor toys and so on that are so space-hungry when brought indoors.
A small path flanked by decorative gravel leads to the wooden semi-glazed front door which in turn, opens into the attractive hallway with its laminate floor. In my opinion there are two types of wood laminate and these are; expensive or awful looking. This definitely does not belong in the latter category and I must therefore assume it was not cheap. Either way, the result is a practical and hard wearing surface with great visual appeal.
Immediately on the right is the door into the downstairs cloakroom with, as expected a hand basin and lavatory. What is less expected is the space available in here, making light of the extensive coat hooks and shoe racks, making it virtually a boot room and adding to the country vibe......VIBE, see, estate agents can be down with the kids too….)
Opposite here is the kitchen/diner which, although not the biggest is well equipped and thoughtfully laid out. A dark ceramic floor is topped with an ‘L’ shaped set of fitted units which incorporate the automatic washing machine and that 21st century necessity, the dish washer. An electric hob and unitary oven make up the set while a massive twin door American style fridge/freezer occupies the point of divide between here and the dining area. This in its turn is big enough to hold a six seat table which should be enough for most families’ needs.
At the top of the hall we find the lounge where the laminate from the hallway continues. This is a very pleasant room, spacious enough to feel comfortable without making you feel the need for masses of furniture and kept beautifully bright by the large picture window set of French doors opening into the rear garden.
Stepping into the garden we find a large section of decking running the full width of the home and broadening out to accommodate a BBQ and dining area to one side. The decking is is a welcome addition especially, as is rarely the case it is exceptionally solidly built and in excellent condition. Indeed the condition of all the woodwork in the garden, from the fencing to the large workshop is evidence of the fastidious way this home has been maintained by the current owners.
The garden is of a good size, with a large area of grass giving way to a further section of gravel which houses various large rabbit hutches (not compulsory…) and the double skinned plastic oil storage tank for the central heating, while the view beyond the fence of fields and open countryside is delightful.
Moving towards the foot of the stairs we pass the ever present cupboard-under-the-stairs, providing a huge amount of storage for all the day to day ‘stuff’ that homes accumulate and all of which has to go somewhere. Well, here is that somewhere.
Stepping onto the landing and turning towards the front of the home brings us to the smaller of the bedrooms. You’ll notice I say ‘smaller’ because this is in no way small and although currently configured as a child’s single room, the single bed takes the form of a fantasy castle, complete with ramparts and a drawbridge so as you see, space is never an issue in here. There is a large recess in one wall which would provide the ideal space for a set of fitted wardrobes should you wish to maximise the space further.
Adjacent to here in the centre of the home is the bathroom. This offers attractive water resistant laminate flooring and a simple suite in white, comprising pedestal hand basin, lavatory and bath with a glass splash screen protecting the room from the excesses of the mixer tap fed shower.
To the rear of the home is the principal bedroom, again with twin windows ensuring excellent light levels and offering outstanding views across the adjacent fields and woods. This room is deceptively big, managing to house a super-king sized bed with twin bedside cabinets, a large chest of drawers and laundry chest and doing so with ease, helped in this regard by the one whole wall of fitted wardrobes providing all the storage you could need. There is also a further walk-in cupboard offering masses of linen storage.
