This absolutely stunning traditional property is the perfect balance between a period Victorian house and a warm welcoming family home. With spacious rooms, high ceilings, an attic conversion and a converted lower ground floor, this house is made for the modern day family. There is rear access and off road parking for the property as well as a good size back garden. The five sizeable double bedrooms and wide landing areas make the upper floors as extremely spacious as the downstairs lounges and living areas. A truly beautiful home, set in a calm and peaceful location near to the lovely town center of Penarth.
Set back off the main roads of the renowned Upper Penarth area, this four storey terraced property has plenty to offer. The peaceful and tranquil lane denies access to through traffic, so the setting of this property is nothing short of an escape to the country! With large broad-leaf trees and picturesque properties surrounding the house, it is hard to believe it is less than a 5 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of Penarth’s shops, restaurants and bars. The popular entertainment of Cardiff Bay is only a short drive away, and with all the local transport links being so accessible, days out have never been easier.
