Set within a few minutes of Rhiwbina Village you’ll find the quiet street of Lansdowne Avenue. Made up of mostly traditional terraced homes, this pretty street has become popular with families due to its superb location, being within catchment for Rhiwbeina Primary and within short walk of the many cafes, parks and boutique shops that Rhiwbina has to offer.
“We will really miss our neighbours: we have an incredible community in this street and we all chat every day, either in person or on our community online group that we created to support our more elderly neighbours over the last year.”
The property itself offers everything a growing family could wish for, with 4 bedrooms, ensuite to master, downstairs W/C, an impressive open plan kitchen as well as off road parking.
"The light, bright openness of the house is what made us buy it, along with the perfect location - quiet, friendly road and backing onto the park… it feels like an extension of our garden”
From the street the property is approached by a fully paved front garden providing ample parking. Entering through the front door, you are greeted by the beautiful original mosaic floor tiles which lead your eye down the hall enticing you to explore. Other original features including picture rails and coving have also been retained adding to the character of the hallway and helping to create a wonderful first impression of this lovely home.
Continuing down the hallway, are large storage cupboard makes use of the under-stair space and offers the perfect place to kick off muddy boots after a walk around nearby Hill Snook Park which this property backs onto.
A door opens to a spacious W/C fitted with a white low level W/C and wash hand basin.
To the left you enter the living room. Originally two rooms, it has been knocked through to provide a large and versatile family space. A cosy living room occupies the front half with views through the bay window over the front garden. Curl up with a mug of cocoa (or glass of wine!) after a long day and binge your favourite boxset in front of the roaring log burner.
The rear half of the room offers a multitude of uses. Whether set up as a formal dining room, office or playroom. How would you use this space? The alcoves prove built in storage and floating shelves above provide the stage to show off your most prized possessions or treasured photographs.
Double doors open into a spectacular open plan kitchen/dining/family room. This impressive extension has almost doubled the downstairs space of the property and offers a superb room the whole family can enjoy. The kitchen, yet modern feels elegant. Its contemporary styling is sympathetic to this traditional home, old and new complimenting one another beautifully.
“Remodelling our kitchen completely transformed our living space, and we have loved the open-plan living - our house is the official "Party Palace" to our friends and family.”
A handy utility room means you can shut the door on your washing machine and tumble dryer, keeping them out of sight, and earshot!
Patio doors extend the living space outside, perfect for the summer months and family BBQs.
Heading upstairs, to the first floor you’ll find 3 bedrooms. To the front is the largest double with thanks to the bay window. A second generous double is located at the rear with views over the garden and park beyond. There is also a single bedroom to the front.
The family bathroom is fully tiled and fitted with a white three-piece suite.
Continuing up the staircase to the second floor you reach the fourth and master bedroom. This room is flooded with natural light thanks to not only 2 Velux celling lights but also a delightful Juliet balcony.
“My favourite features are the French doors and the Juliet balcony in our master bedroom. Every morning I get up, sit on the edge of the bed and take a minute to look over the park and the trees. I love leaning on my balcony railing on summer evenings, listening to all the sounds of the neighbourhood - tweeting birds, neighbours' laughter, and the odd happy dog barking in the park."
The generous room proportions provide ample room numerous items of bedroom furniture including a full-size wardrobe. Additional storage in the eaves is also accessible.
The bedroom also boasts a beautiful ensuite shower room which is fitted with modern bathroom units which enclose a low level W/C and wash hand basin. A wall mounted unit provides storage to hide away all your lotions and potions and there’s even matching shelving for your towels.
