Ground Floor
A solid wood entrance door, with stained leaded glass insert, leads to a spacious and welcoming hallway featuring a curved, exposed brick, double height wall and attractive staircase.

A window, with view across the garden, draws in natural light and doors lead to both the living room and garden room.

The living room is well proportioned and full of character. Features include an exposed ceiling beam, stone fireplace with rustic oak mantel and alcove shelving.

The adjoining dining room, also with exposed beam ceiling, has an oak floor, wood panelled walls (in part) and storage cabinets with display shelving built into the alcoves.

Ground Floor Continued..
A traditional kitchen, with dual aspect, overlooks the garden and is well equipped with an array of wall and base units, generous tiled work surfaces which extend to form a breakfast bar and a double sink unit.

There is space for an oven, with fitted extractor hood over, space for a fridge and freezer, plus space and plumbing for a washing machine or dishwasher.

A conservatory sits to the rear of the cottage, connecting the entrance hallway and kitchen. The room has a sunny aspect, French doors opening onto the terrace and adds a certain fluidity to the ground floor living areas.

First Floor.
The first floor is deceptively spacious with a master bedroom suite, two further double bedrooms, family bathroom and airing cupboard all located off a light and airy landing.

The master bedroom, with built in wardrobes, not only has an en-suite bathroom with shower, WC and wash hand basin but also boasts additional space, with dual aspect, most recently used as a dressing area.

Alternative uses might include a cot room or even 4th bedroom (with shared en-suite bathroom), assuming the master bedroom were sub-divided and shared between children.

The second and third bedrooms, both doubles, also have built in wardrobes.

A family bathroom with bath, WC and vanity wash hand basin completes the first floor accommodation.

Springfield Cottage sits on the corner of Heol Y Cawl and Highwalls Road. The former is a no through road and the latter, with restricted access for residents only.

The rear garden, with southerly aspect, is enclosed by natural stone walling and bordered by trees and shrubbery which offer excellent privacy and screening.

Landscaping includes a paved sun terrace, level lawn with mature apple tree and planted beds.

The garden also accommodates a substantial garden shed.

A block paved hard standing, accessed via double wrought iron gates, provides parking for a single car.

Further parking is available adjacent to the property and is unrestricted in the wider Highwalls Road and Highwalls Avenue areas.
