Queens Anne Square, Cathays Park, Cardiff – £865,000

A

You’ll struggle to find a house of this magnitude situated so close to city centre, in fact, it might well be as good as it gets. The four-bed Georgian-style house is situated in Cathays Park, one of the most exclusive and sought after locations in Cardiff – just a few minutes walk to the Castle’s grounds, the city centre and Alexandra Park.

Built in the mid-1930s the property is fully detached with a beautiful original bay sash window which is complimented nicely by the grand pillared entrance. With excellently kept lawns running through the centre of the park, the house sits on a generous plot with driveway parking, a garage and a fantastic back garden. You may be thinking you’ve seen this style of housing before, and you could be right, as the houses are based upon layout found at the Thomas Jeffersons University of Virginia.
