If there’s one thing I love, then it is a home that surprises you by providing so much more that first impressions would lead you to expect and this is one such.
Positioned in what must be one of the most convenient positions in Mold for anyone needing to be central to the shops and restaurants this appears a fairy normal two up-two down terraced home but then, Tardis like, it sets out to baffle you… Between here and next door is a doorway, revealing an enclosed alleyway which leads to two wooden gates, one for each of the homes’ rear yards.
Opening the front door we find ourselves not, as I expected, entering straight into the front lounge but rather into a spacious hallway where the stairs rise in front of us. The floor in here is an attractive wood laminate which continues throughout both the reception rooms and is of a sufficiently high quality to withstand the extra footfall which occurs in any hall.
Immediately on the left is a solid wood door into the front lounge where again, I was amazed by its sheer size. Homes of this type while cosy, can often feel a bit restrictive but this is never a consideration here. A sizeable front facing window ensures excellent levels of light and there is a focal point provided by the living flame gas fire centrally positioned in the large chimney breast. To one side of this is a fitted cupboard which hides the electricity meter and fuses.
Moving towards the rear of the home we come into the rear facing dining room. This is similarly proportioned to the lounge, that is to say far bigger than you have any right to expect and features another chimney breast, this time containing a living flame effect electric fire. This is a room easily capable of playing host to the largest of dining tables or, if a smaller table is suitable for your needs could fulfil a dual role and become an additional sitting room.
Another solid wood door to the rear allows us through into the kitchen which again surprises with its size. With walls tiled to full ceiling height and a light ceramic floor it has a bright and airy feel and while strictly speaking being a galley kitchen, it is wide enough to remove the problems that such a layout occasionally produces. In other words, two chefs can work here simultaneously without feeling the need to kill one another, which can only be a good thing. The units are obviously freshly fitted and conceal the integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, while a taller unit carries the tower ovens and the large work tops provide loads of space for being creative.
Another solid wood door to the rear allows us through to the kitchen where on the right is a door down into the cellar, a feature that if not actually unique is certainly unusual in this size of property. Needless to say, this is a home where storage space is never an issue or, should you be blessed with teenagers it could become a hideaway that would make them the envy of their friends. And keep them out of your hair… just saying.
A door at the far end opens into a rear hallway to the back door, opposite which is a large cupboard housing the automatic washing machine and the gas combi central heating boiler. Two further internal doors off here reveal the separate lavatory and the bathroom. These are again fully tiled from floor to ceiling, the bathroom containing a suite of a pedestal hand basin, bath and built-in shower cubicle fitted with an electric shower behind the glass door. The idea of keeping the lavatory in a separate room was common a few decades ago and I can never understand why it fell from favour, especially considering the additional flexibility it offers during the morning rush as various family members prepare to leave for the day.
Opening the back door allows us out into a paved patio style ‘garden’. Oh alright, it’s more of a yard but with its various large raised planters providing colour and even the chance of some small scale vegetable cultivation it is larger than you expect and gives somewhere to sit and relax in the sun. It is further aided in this by not being overlooked from any direction making it your own little haven of peace, something which can never be undervalued.
Back indoors and up the stairs we move towards the front of the building along the wide landing to the smallest of the bedrooms. This, although the smallest, is by no means small and would even, at a pinch, accept a double bed if necessary. Admittedly any choice of free standing furniture would be a compromise, but it remains a possibility. Alternatively, it would make an extremely comfortable single room with all the space anyone could want.
Adjacent to here and also overlooking the front is a definite double room, with no allowances necessary. In here is ample room for a double bed along with a wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table if needed, giving the most demanding occupant little opportunity to complain.
Finally, towards the rear of the home we come to the main bedroom. This largest of the upper rooms is a spacious double room, further helped by the one complete wall of fitted wardrobes which, as usual, reduces the need for further free standing furniture and makes the room feel even bigger than it actually is. In one corner is an additional set of louvre doors which I took to be a cupboard giving extra space for hanging clothes, until I opened the doors.
In here, I was confronted by a lavatory which looked so incongruous that I thought it had been stored here, but then I noticed the water in the bowl… and realised it was a working model. Thinking that it was none of my business what people choose to keep in their bedroom cupboards I moved on, but then got to thinking. Having a lavatory upstairs is always a convenience (no pun intended) and an en-suite is a major plus in any main bedroom; but what if there is not enough room? Exercise lateral thought and put it in the cupboard that you already have. Simples. And in its own way, utterly brilliant!
