Over recent years Penyffordd has grown enormously, yet it is a tribute to the nature of the place that the essentially ‘village’ feel has not been lost. Typified by the annual village carnival and Christmas pantomime (both of which will surely return soon, as the corona vaccination gathers pace) it retains those things that make its residents take a pride and want to live here. Coupled with an excellent primary school, the proximity of the highly regarded Castell Alun secondary school and a rich variety of local facilities, it becomes a very desirable address and one which, via this home, could become yours.
On a short cul-de-sac off Poppy Field Drive we find this delightful home. Situated where it is there is no possibility of your being disturbed by passing traffic, thus providing not only peace but security for any escaping children, which is always a consideration. There is a pair of designated parking spots immediately in front of the home, minimising the distance you have to struggle through the rain laden with the week’s shopping before finding refuge beneath the porch above the composite front door. To the side of the home is a wooden gate concealing a pathway round into the rear garden, which provides not only access but a route for the wheelie bins to be taken out.
Stepping into the hallway we are greeted by an attractive and practical ceramic tiled floor that is replicated in both the kitchen and the downstairs cloakroom which is found immediately on our right. This is surprisingly large, unlike many of its type where even turning round requires the flexibility of youth. There is a pedestal hand basin with storage cupboard beneath, a radiator and lavatory. There is also enough room to allow coats to be hung up easily, making it a cloakroom in the true sense of the word.
Opposite here is the again surprisingly large kitchen, with the clean lines of the ‘L’ shaped layout of fitted units filling two complete walls. This arrangement leaves sufficient space for a small dining table to be positioned against the inner wall if desired though many would prefer such a table to be positioned in the lounge. The kitchen units conceal a variety of integrated appliances, including automatic washing machine, dishwasher and a tall fridge/freezer along with the gas hob and matching fan oven beneath.
At the top of the hallway we find the attractive semi glazed door to the lounge. This is not only easy on the eye but has the advantage of admitting extra daylight into the hall, which can never be a bad thing. Now if I am being honest, experience has taught me that in many homes of this type, space in the lounge is usually, being polite, limited. In here however, this is far from the case judging from the dimensions of the ‘L’ shaped sofa currently in use. The floor is of a high quality dark wood laminate and gives a distinctly classy air to the room and you will recall I mentioned the possibility of a dining table in here? Well such an item fits neatly into one corner and when pulled out from the wall would allow the family to eat together in some style. There is a deep recess to one side of the room, ideally suited for a formal sideboard or more usually, TV and entertainment centre.
Beside this another door reveals the all important ‘cupboard-under-the-stairs’, the home to all those things too ugly and space consuming to be left out; the condenser drier, mops, Hoovers, ironing boards and so on and also the things we can’t bear to throw out. After all, who is to say 9 half empty tins of green emulsion won’t come in handy one day?
The rear wall of the lounge is largely taken up by a set of French doors with additional glass panels either side to maximise the light and when open, to give an almost Mediterranean atmosphere out of keeping with the current weather but, better times are a-coming. Stepping out into the garden we find a broad strip of paving forming a patio running the full width of the home and connecting with the pathway to the front parking area. Beyond here is quite a large lawn edged with crushed gravel which in turn is dotted with decorative plants in pots before returning to a further strip of gravel at the bottom of the garden where sits a substantial wooden garden shed. The whole area is surrounded by wooden fencing which is in excellent order and provides just the right degree of privacy for those family gatherings or a BBQ at the end of a hard week.
Moving up the turned staircase we come first of all to the smallest of the rooms. If homes like this demand any sort of compromise, it is in the size of the bedrooms and this is undeniably bijou. Having said that, with this home we are firmly in the realm of the first-time buyer, which is most likely a young couple in the early years of marriage and possibly with a young baby. As a nursery or child’s room, it is perfect or even, in these difficult times where working from home is becoming ever more usual, it would make a splendid office or should Madam insist, a dressing room.
Adjacent to here and also overlooking the garden is a far larger bedroom. This is a good sized double with space for, along with the bed, a large free standing wardrobe and proper chest of drawers providing all the storage realistically necessary.
Moving to the front of the home we pass what I expected to be the boiler cupboard but has in fact been utilised as a huge hanging wardrobe with additional storage beneath and supplementing clothes space in the bedrooms. Beside here is the family bathroom, tastefully tiled throughout in marble effect tiles (what else?) and providing a suite of a pedestal hand basin with a similar cupboard beneath to that found in the downstairs cloakroom. There is also a lavatory and traditional bath with a fitted glass side screen offering protection from any over-exuberant use of the powered shower.
Finally we come to the main bedroom which simply does what it says on the tin but its special feature is the attached en-suite. In here is another pedestal hand basin, lavatory and a fully enclosed shower cubicle with an electric shower. If there is a down side, the space it takes up makes the main bedroom a little small though any storage problems this may cause are addressed by the extra wardrobe by the bathroom, so it is all a matter of taste. And people view things differently which is what helps make all our homes personal and unique, as they should be.
