Vendor Interview I’ve had a long association with the house as my grandmother brought me here when I was a baby. She was a seamstress who made ballgowns for the lady of the house at the time and she took me along with her in my pram! When we looked around the house a number of years later, we realised that it needed a lot of work doing to it but when we walked in, it felt like home and I just loved it straight away, My favourite room is the kitchen, I’ve always dreamed of having a kitchen like this with the big island in the middle, built in appliances, wine cooler and the log burner at the far end of the room. It’s open plan into the conservatory and is a great place to spend time with the family and for entertaining. We’ve had lots of parties over the 22 years that we’ve lived here, including New Year and Christening celebrations for our grandchildren. It’s very easy to entertain with the open plan layout.

It’s very easy to entertain with the open plan layout. The location has always been a big attraction as it’s so handy for just about everything living here! We have all the amenities that we need and it feels so private, in fact sometimes we feel like we’re living in the country even though we’re so near to town.
. The town centre is within walking distance and has everything you need for day to day living including shops, pubs, a doctor’s surgery, Argos and Subway. The bus station is a 5-minute walk with plenty of local and National buses and there is a direct line to London from the train station which is around a 20-minute walk away. The larger supermarkets, including Tesco and Morrisons, are easily accessible as are the Dyffryn, Mochdre and Vastre Industrial Estates which have a number of stores including a Laura Ashley clearance outlet. There are plenty of places to visit including Powys Castle and Shrewsbury and we’re about an hour away from the coast. Just down the road is Dolerw Park which is a large, green open area and is used by dog walkers and walkers alike. We enjoy walking along the footpath by the River Severn which can take you all the way into Welshpool where you can then get the bus back home if you don’t fancy the return walk!” “Outside, the garden gets the sun throughout the day and there are three lawned areas, two big copper trees, decking and a place for the BBQ.
