INTRODUCTION
In the popular location known locally as "The Colonies", and within walking distance of the University Hospital at Heath, is this attractive three double bedroom, (originally four bedroom), two bathroom, bay-fronted house that offers excellent family-size accommodation. It has the benefit of a recently installed Baxi combi gas central boiler and there are thermostat-controlled radiators virtually throughout. The property is also double-glazed. It is of the double-bay (bay-over-bay) style of mid-terrace house, with facing brick front elevations, and the roof is of slates with a tile-hung gable. At the front is a walled forecourt, and there is an entrance porch that still retains the ornate period wall tiling. At the rear is a pretty patio garden, and there is pedestrian gate access to a gated rear lane. We understand that the property is Freehold.

Excellent local amenities include; a comprehensive range of shops and stores in Whitchurch Road that include, Sainsbury's Local, and Co-op convenience stores, and on nearby Western Avenue, a Tesco Extra Superstore, Staples, Wickes, & Halfords; schools at junior and senior levels, including a Welsh language Primary School; excellent bus services; Parks and recreational facilities that include the nearby Maindy Leisure Centre, Heath Park, and the lovely Roath Park with its famous boating lake; popular local pubs, restaurants and café bars; a Library, Post Office and other facilities, all within walking distance. It is only a short drive to the Gabalfa Interchange for access to the main trunk roads (A470, A48M, M4) into and out of the City, and the City Centre is approximately two miles away.
