Lane End is one of the most historic parts of Buckley, round the corner from the pottery works for which the town was originally famous and is where we find this charming home. Perfectly positioned to meet the needs of those commuting to Wrexham, Chester or Deeside and within a walk of the centre of town it has convenience in abundance. When we add into the mix its private, almost hidden location the home makes an increasingly strong case for itself but when we also factor in the price, it becomes outstanding.
Alongside the Working Men’s Club on Brook St is an access road leading through to a small enclave of houses tucked away out of sight and interestingly, out of earshot and it is here where we find this delightful home. The end one of a terrace of three, it has been extended to one side providing space for the splendid kitchen with the new bathroom and additional smaller bedroom above, explaining at a stroke the surprisingly roomy feeling inside the home.
Behind a waist high brick wall lies a small front garden laid to decorative gravel with a central diamond motif in paving slabs. A path runs from here around the side of the extension, following the meticulously kept ++hedge. The white painted semi glazed composite front door opens into the inner hall, where the stairs rise in front of us.
To the left is the door into the rear dining section of the large through lounge. In the front portion of this cosy feeling space is a very attractive marble effect fireplace with its imposing solid wood surround and mantle piece. Although not in current use, the chimney is still in place and thus an open fire or log burner remain a possibility if desired. What is perhaps more important is the fact that the room is sufficiently big to accommodate the modern oversized furniture that is so popular today, making for a very pleasant living space.
Moving through the archway towards the rear we find a similarly proportioned dining area, again with a large open fireplace which is currently not in use, but which could be reinstated. The remainder is a large room with twin storage cupboards either side of the chimney breast and sufficient room for either a full-sized formal dining table or alternatively, more soft furnishings to extend the size of your living area.
At the rear of the room is the door through into the kitchen, passing the utility room and the beneath stairs pantry and storeroom. The kitchen is situated in the extension, making it unexpectedly large which is never a bad thing and set out in a elongated ‘U’ shape with a long side window above the sink. Everything is fresh and modern and provides for all the labour-saving devices without which we cannot cope. As we enter the room another window to our left avoids this end of the room becoming at all gloomy and beside which, sits the remaining door into the utility area.
This provides further storage and space for the washing machine and central heating boiler opposite the back door. Also off here is the useful downstairs cloakroom; nicely presented and featuring a corner mounted hand basin and lavatory.
Outside the stylish white UPVC stable door is a small triangular shaped garden, laid to an eclectic mix of gravel, paving and artificial grass, it is surrounded by the neat hedge and bordered by various raised beds. Although this sounds a strange mix, in reality it is very attractive and provides space for drying clothes in the fresh air, and a relaxing spot from which to watch this happen. Who said housework was hard?
A wrought iron gate opens onto a footpath running along the outer border giving pedestrian access to the house next door and also to the small patio area outside the dining room window. Completely sheltered, this is a real suntrap equally good for bronzing yourself as it is for bringing on your tomato plants…
Back indoors and up the stairs we turn right into the utterly beautiful bathroom. This looks like something straight out of a Victoria Plumb showroom where the display designers are really trying to impress. The ceramic floor matches the pale grey wall tiles while a contrasting darker shade picks out the unitary hand basin with its storage module beneath and the matching lavatory. The shower is a virtual wet room behind its protective glass panel and features a twin headed rain shower drawing its hot water directly from the gas central heating system while warmth for the whole room comes from the stainless steel heated towel rail/radiator.
Opposite across the landing we come to the rear facing bedroom. This, although currently in use as a nursery would none the less make a perfectly adequate double room with a large, fitted wardrobe filling one of the recesses beside the chimney breast, leaving the other free.
Moving along the landing towards the front of the home on our left and down a couple of steps is found the smallest of the bedrooms. Overlooking the side of the building this is a very comfortable single room, currently seeing service as an office. If you have need of a formal third bedroom however, it does offer this flexibility and if I am honest, I have slept in doubles no bigger than this but admittedly, I was a student then…
Finally, overlooking the front garden we find the principal bedroom which offers a space of altogether different proportions. In here, helped by the fitted wardrobes positioned either side of the chimney breast there is a vast king-sized bed with twin bedside cabinets, various free standing storage units and a large chest of drawers, yet there is still room alongside the bed for a large child’s cot without it being in the way of passers-by. Indeed, the longer I spent in this home, the more Tardis-like it seemed to become and space, as we all know, far from being the final frontier is the one luxury that cannot be faked….
