YOUR DREAM HOME BY THE RIVER – QUALITY BESPOKE DESIGN AND OUTSTANDING FINISH – MUST VIEW!! This sensational modern detached property features some stunning interior designs and offers expansive family accommodation spread over four floors, with open views along the River Taff and across to Hailey Park from every room in the front of the house. The incredible living room and kitchen are the stars of the show, with the lounge and dining area featuring floor to ceiling glass to take in the vista, and the huge kitchen featuring an enormous granite-topped island with double Belfast sink, and an Aga-style cooker in addition to an upscale double oven and gas hob.
The property is located in one of the most sought-after locations in the city, being within walking distance of Llandaff Cathedral and High Street, as well as the amenities and train stations of Danescourt and Llandaff North. There are wonderful walks on your doorstep, and you can follow the Taff Trail all the way to the City Centre almost without seeing any road traffic. You will benefit from being within catchment of some extremely well-regarded state schools, with Bishop of Llandaff, Howells School and the Cathedral School also being nearby.
Quite literally no expense has been spared on the design and finish of the property. Entering at ground floor level from your private parking area, the hallway has a welcoming feel and provides a great area for coats and shoes, with the main utility room here and a ground floor playroom/bedroom with its own WC and side entrance. You’ll also find that every spare space has been cleverly utilised for storage, allowing you to live clean and clutter free.
As you ascend to the first floor, a glass panelled wall and oak door lead to the living room, a truly impressive space which extends forwards to an amazing open sitting/dining area which offers open views across and along the river, and allows light to pour in through three large electric Velux windows. Moving through to the kitchen, you’ll find a vast array of storage units and counter space, which include integrated appliances, a choice of cooking stations, and a fabulous conservatory-style snug area with glazed rooflights, wood burning stove, and bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden. There’s also a cloakroom with WC and a large storage cupboard here.
Stairs rise to the second floor, with glass balustrading, beautiful flooring and oak doors to all rooms. At the front is the first double bedroom, with river views and an en-suite shower room with WC. Next to this is a smaller room currently used as a study, but also ample as a single room. Towards the rear of the house are two great size double bedrooms, which share a “Jack and Jill” style bathroom.
Finally, the top floor is given over to create a fabulous master suite, with an extensive range of built-in luxury furniture, bifold doors opening onto a spectacular terrace which allows you to take in the views with your morning coffee, and a beautiful full en-suite bathroom with free-standing bath and double walk-in shower. Breathtaking!
The rear garden comes in two parts – stepping out through the bi-folding doors from the kitchen snug, you have a large flat garden area, ideal for the children to play and the family to enjoy barbeques and al-fresco dining. The current owners intended then to install a spiral staircase later this year which would rise up to the “orchard” level, a large second level garden which is planted with fruit trees and could be a real gardener’s delight. There are also external stairs down at the side of the house which lead to the garage/storeroom and a space behind double gates which offers another safe space for younger children to play out. Energy efficient solar panels (owned outright) will help you enjoy low energy bills for years to come!
A house like this offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we strongly suggest arranging your viewing with Cardiff Homes at the earliest convenient opportunity.
