De­scrip­tion: 277sq m (2,982sq ft) four bed­room, de­tached Agent: Lis­ney In the 1970s a small cul-de-sac was cre­ated in the grounds of a pe­riod house on Mount Mer­rion Av­enue. The new road was named Brook­field and No 1, which faces on to Mount Mer­rion Av­enue, is on the mar­ket for the first time in nearly 30 years as the own­ers pre­pare to down­size.

When they bought the red­brick de­tached house it was a very dif­fer­ent prop­erty both in­side and out.

They ex­tended to the side, mak­ing the house dou­ble-fronted and then later ex­tended again to the rear, adding a sun­room and again fur­ther to the side to cre­ate a large fam­ily room – it used to be a games room for the fam­ily of boys who lived here.

At 277sq m (2,982sq ft) it is a large house. There are two re­cep­tion rooms on one side of the wide bright hall, the rear one open­ing out to the small lawned gar­den.

On the other side of the hall is the more used part of the house – an open-plan area that in­cludes the kitchen to the front and a liv­ing area to the rear that opens into the sun­room.

The painted tim­ber units in the kitchen could eas­ily be up­dated with a new coat of paint and they are topped with pol- ished gran­ite work­tops. The range cooker is set in a bare-brick chim­ney – a style fea­ture that’s also in the liv­ing area and the for­mer games room, which has now been fur­nished as an­other com­fort­able liv­ing room com­plete with strik- ing red stove.

There are four dou­ble bed­rooms – there were five but one was con­verted into a large bath­room en suite for the main bed­room.

It has a cor­ner jacuzzi bath and space for a shower if new
