Property description

*PLANNING PERMISSION GRANTED FOR DETACHED DWELLING TO THE REAR* This impeccably executed five-bedroom house lies on Cathedral Road, one of Cardiff's most beautiful and recognisable streets. Built circa.1890, the house has a wonderfully traditional exterior that belies the contemporary interventions within, which have been subject to a comprehensive renovation.

Entrance is via a smart, grey front door that opens into a wide entrance hallway laid with original geometric tiles . On the left-hand side of the plan is a large double reception room, with oak flooring and white-painted walls. The front section has a wonderfully ornate fireplace surround, flanked on either side by cupboards and built-in shelving. It is illuminated by light that enters through a large sash window and floods through to the middle section of the plan.

The hall leads to the cloakroom and the ground-floor middle section, remodelled to incorporate a study area and utility room plus access to the cellar. At the rear of the ground floor lies the kitchen and family room. Utterly contemporary and impeccably executed, this is arguably the heart of the home. There is a central island with a slate work-surface, and wood-framed breakfast bar which provides the perfect space for cooking and entertaining. The panty cabinetry has been painted in a smart dark-grey, against which the light-grey kitchen units complement each other beautifully. There is plenty of storage space, plus a range cooker and extraction fan. The family room has doors open to a patio beyond and allow plenty of light into the room, a fantastically indulgent spot for nights spent in front of an old classic.

Timber stairs ascend to the first floor, where three bedrooms and a walk-in wardrobe can be found. The large front bedroom has an en-suite shower room and two sizable sash windows that make it wonderfully bright and airy, with a roll-top bathtub nestled in the bay. The second double-bedroom has a cleverly-designed en-suite. The rear-annexe hall leads to the walk-in wardrobe and third double-bedroom with Juliet-balcony and a four-piece en-suite bathroom.

A set of split-level stairs leads to a storage room that flows the length of the rear annexe, and the second floor landing. There are two double bedrooms at this level, plus a stylish shower room.

The rear garden is a spacious sanctuary, set around a central lawn, plus patio area. A pathway runs parallel to the lawn, leading to the detached double-garage, accessed via electric roller shutter door. Planning permission has been granted for a two bedroom detached dwelling -
Viewings commence Sat 25th September. Please call Hern & Crabtree, Pontcanna for more information.
