In the sought-after "Colonies" just off Whitchurch Road, and within walking distance of the University Hospital at Heath, is this delightful, and very spacious terrace house that has been extensively, but sympathetically modernised, and retains many lovely period features. The property has the benefit of gas central heating from a wall-mounted Vaillant combi boiler that is situated in the cloakroom, and there are radiators virtually throughout. It also benefits from having extensive double-glazing, although sash-windows have been retained at the front, in keeping with the original character and style of the property. The property is of the double-bay (bay-over-bay) style of mid-terrace house, with front elevations of painted brick, and the roof is tiled with a tile-hung gable fascia. At the front is a walled forecourt, and at the rear is a pretty patio garden with pedestrian access to a gated rear vehicular lane.
The area is popular for its close proximity to a wide range of local amenities that include; local shops and stores in Whitchurch Road and nearby Crwys Road, including Sainsbury’s Local, Co-op Convenience store and a large Tesco Extra superstore on Western Avenue; junior and senior schools that include Ysgol Mynydd Bychan, a Welsh-language primary school; bus services; parks and recreational facilities that include Heath Park, Roath Park, and Maindy Leisure Centre; popular restaurants, bistros and café bars; a local Post Office and Library, all close-by. It is within easy reach of the city centre, the University Hospital at Heath, Cardiff University and Cardiff Metro, and is only a short drive to the Gabalfa Interchange for access on to the main roads into and out of the City.
