Rhosesmor, set on the hill above Mold and commanding far reaching views across the valley offers everything we expect of a Welsh village but without the inconvenience that being out in the wilds can bring. That is because it isn’t out in the wilds. In spite of conveying the feeling of wide open spaces you can jump in the car and be shopping in Mold market in less than 10 minutes, giving you the best of both worlds. However living in these surroundings can unfortunately sometimes carry a cost implication so to find so charming a cottage so reasonably priced is rare indeed and an opportunity not to be missed.
Although this home has no formal parking, there is ample space on the opposite side of the road with places always available. We recently sold another cottage a couple of doors down where this was also the case but it has never caused the residents a problem.
Walking through the wrought iron gate past the low brick front wall we pass into the front garden with its crushed gravel covering and decorative pots providing splashes of colour. There is a porch standing proud of the front elevation with a white semi glazed UPVC front door. In here is a practical faux slate floor and plenty of space for outdoor shoes and coats before the further UPVC door opens into the lounge.
This is everything I had hoped for, spacious and with a wooden staircase rising on the left as pictures will show, while the rest of the room is kept well lit courtesy of the large front facing bay window. In the corner is a very eye-catching raw brick hearth with a heavy oak surround and mantle and in the centre, a log burning stove which really does provide the ‘cottage’ feel in the way that only this type of fire can. Various storage and display units are positioned beneath the staircase, making excellent use of this otherwise wasted space.
At the rear of the room, another door leads through into the kitchen/dining room although that term scarcely does justice to the charm of this room. With the dining section floored in excellent quality wood laminate before giving way to the plain dark grey of the kitchen we have enough space here for a huge family sized table, the end of which fits into an attractive recess at one side. I know that sounds awkward but as the accompanying photos show, it is anything but and the positioning of the table leaves sufficient space for a large traditional sideboard and dresser beside the second raw brick fireplace. In this instance, this contains the grate for a normal open fire which is something to add real occasion to any formal meal.
From here we move past a large breakfast bar mounted atop kitchen units and forming a barrier between the two rooms. If we include the units beneath the breakfast bar, the kitchen forms a ‘U’ shape and provides ample storage and space for the free standing electric cooker, an automatic washing machine and tumble drier and a massive American style fridge. Mounted on the wall in the corner where it takes no space, is the central heating boiler.
Another door leads from here into a small rear lobby with more storage and the UPVC back door, while further to the rear is the downstairs bathroom. This is attractively tiled from floor to ceiling, with a non-slip and water resistant floor covering and a suite which comprises of a contemporary wall mounted hand basin, lavatory and corner positioned shower cubicle with an electric shower unit.
Through the back door there are two separate fuel stores, one for logs and the other for coal before another door reveals a storeroom that I suspect began its career as an outside lavatory. Before the concrete paving gives way to a mix of lawn, crushed gravel and paving, there are two gates, one to each side which allow for the right of way for the neighbours to move their wheelie bins round to the road.The remainder of the garden is a riot of plants both decorative and practical, surrounding a central paved patio area perfect for summer BBQs and then, off set to the side there are two wooden sheds for further storage or whatever use you can dream up.
Back to the lounge and up the stairs we come to the rear facing family bathroom. This appears to have been recently refitted, and with real style. Large grey tiles adorn the walls in contrast to the dark grey carpeting, while the suite provides a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and bath. There is no shower above the bath but in view of the separate facilities downstairs and any possible problems with the comfortable but absorbent carpeting, this is perhaps no bad thing.
Adjacent to here and also rear facing is the smaller of the bedrooms. At a pinch this would make a cosy double room but your choice of any free standing furniture may be a little compromised. In its current guise as a child’s room however it is generously proportioned, providing all the toy storage and playing space you could wish for.
Overlooking the front of the home we find the main bedroom, which is an altogether different animal. Helped by the additional space afforded by the large bay window mirroring that of the lounge below, along with the double bed there is room for an enormous set of adjoined wardrobes and a full sized office desk; always useful in these days of enforced working from home and such a pleasant place to be that even after covid has gone, why would you want to leave?
