STOP! In the name of the law! This outstanding character filled family home has been sympathetically and painstakingly renovated by the current owners to provide the perfect mix of modern living, whilst retaining the atmosphere of a bygone era!
Estate agents are known for being over the top in property descriptions, however, there is only one word befitting of this dwelling - magnificent!! Originally purchased in a dilapidated condition a number of years ago, the current owners have transformed the property into a wonderful space with many throwbacks to the property's previous life as the county town's police station.
Approached from the Llanerch Lane side of the property, there is a good-sized entrance hallway which leads on to the first main reception room with wonderful character including exposed brickwork. This room measures 7.11 x 5.77m, and the light and airy accommodation has plenty of scope for dining, entertaining and relaxing, and even has the benefit of a second external door. A door from here leads on to the bespoke kitchen. This area measures 4.88 x 4.65m and has plenty of space for food preparation and dining, with slate working surfaces inset into handmade oak units, an island with a nod to the previous era, being hand made from the old cell benches, and space for a range style cooker. A door from the first reception room leads to an inner lobby with large storage cupboard, and from here, a further door leads into the second reception room. Measuring 5.13 x 4.85m, this room is both spacious and cosy, with a woodburning stove inset into a brick fire surround, the main feature of the room. An inner hallway from the first reception leads to the downstairs shower room, formerly a holding cell, which has modern fixtures and fittings, with a tip of the cap to the buildings' former use, the shower screen being the bullet proof glass from the station's reception area, and the original cell door, all painstakingly restored.
On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, the largest measuring 5.00 x 4.82m and having large built in wardrobes, and the smallest measuring 5.46 x 3.10m. With the changes in the world over the past couple of years, the smallest bedroom has been utilised as a tattoo studio by the current owners, and there is also ample space in these large rooms for a home office, without disrupting a space designed perfectly for relaxation and rest. The bespoke carpet on the landing also leads to the family bathroom, again with modern fixtures and fittings, all in keeping with the style of the property. One of the larger bedrooms also has a feature woodburning stove as well as loft hatch into the attic rooms. These rooms are accessed by a timber ladder, and should the new owners require additional accommodation, the rooms would make a spectacular master suite. The main room on the second floor measures 8.70 x 5.43m and off here is a room that would be perfect as an en-suite, measuring 4.44 x 3.49m with plumbing lighting and power already in place. Both attic rooms have rooflights installed, allowing natural light to flow through the rooms.
Externally, the property boasts plenty of private space, with a lawned area to the front, with iron railings surrounding, with separate pathways leading up to both entrance doorways. To the rear of the property is a gated area, with ample private parking for numerous vehicles, as you would expect with a property of this ilk and size, and covered car port. There is also a wonderful private seating area, which is low maintenance being laid mainly to gravel, and has a covered BBQ area, offering ample space for relaxing and entertaining, which providing privacy and shade from the long summer afternoon sun. The extensive cellar is accessed from the rear of the property, with three separate rooms, ideal for storage and a workshop.
All in all, this landmark property needs to be viewed to be appreciated in full. From the sheer size of the accommodation, to the wonderful finish, and the unique characterful features, this outstanding family home never fails to impress!
