Smack in the middle of the small enclave of terraced streets off Glan yr afon Road lies Water Street. Resembling the background of an L.S. Lowry painting these homes typify the style of working class housing common at the turn of the 19th century though it is doubtful that anyone from those times would recognise them now, with their double glazing, central heating and all the creature comforts we have come to expect. It is this modernisation that has added so enormously to their appeal, their modest dimensions concealing what have become very desirable homes in what must be one of Mold’s most convenient locations.
Presenting a well maintained pebbledash façade to the street, with obviously fairly new white UPVC windows and a similar UPVC door, we find number 4. Stepping through the front door puts us straight into the living room, a square room offering a surprisingly generous amount of space to accommodate the modern trend in furniture, which seems to grow exponentially larger each year… Happily there is enough room here for all but the most flamboyant of suites. The modern feel is continued by the quality light wood laminate flooring and the ease with which this can be kept clean is always a boon when the feet are coming straight in off the street. The chimney breast has a very attractive feature in a small log store where the original fireplace sat. This makes for a rustic atmosphere but without the dust and chore of maintaining a real log burning stove, something which the gas central heating would render largely redundant anyway. A low wooden cupboard fills the recess to the street side of the chimney breast and contains the gas and electricity meters while also providing shelving.
At the rear of the room a stripped pine door opens into the fully ceramic floored kitchen where we are immediately faced with the door to the storage space beneath the stairs. The importance of these storage spaces can never be underestimated, especially in smaller homes where room to keep all the space-hungry equipment we all possess is at a premium. There is a limit to the patience of the most saintly of us as we stub a toe yet again on the ironing board poking out from beneath the bed…
The kitchen units are laid out in an ‘L’ shape, providing adequate work surfaces and the accompanying storage beneath, space for a quite enormous American style double fronted fridge/freezer and a stand-alone gas cooker, while the washing machine lies adjacent to the sink and beneath the rear facing back window.
Stepping out into the back garden, (oh all right, it’s more of a yard) there is a paved seating area which, while not huge, has more than enough room for several deck chairs, a table and a BBQ. What more could you need? Beyond here the ground is gravel covered and it must be said, a slightly odd shape. This is quite common in older properties of this type because here, close to the end of the, road the curve in the front of the houses has the effect of crushing the rear gardens together. Of the three homes affected this does however, have the largest of the available spaces.
Moving upstairs to the small landing and turning towards the rear takes us to the bathroom. This is again not huge, as expected in a home of this type, but neatly fitted out with a fully ceramic floor and tiles running to the full height of the ceiling. There is a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and a tear-drop shaped bath with a shower above, drawing its water directly from the combi boiler and thus ensuring a constant supply of heat and pressure.
Adjacent to here and also rear facing, is the second bedroom. This is most definitely a single room, being too long and narrow to comfortably accommodate a double bed. As a child’s room however, top and bottom bunk beds would be an easy fit while leaving quite a generous amount of free floor space.
Finally, overlooking the front of the home is the main bedroom. “Master bedroom” sounds a little too pompous in a home like this, though there are many newer homes with far smaller masters… There is plenty of space in here, as shown by its ability to swallow a large double bed with twin bedside cabinets, a bookcase, chest of drawers and quite possibly the biggest wardrobe I’ve ever seen. It has to have been built in situ because it would never have come up the stairs in one piece and I pity the removals men called upon to remove it when the home sells…
