    About this property

    • Salmon Leap is a landmark development sitting on the Handbridge side of the Old Dee Bridge.

      16 Salmon Leap is a semi-detached house with pretty views across to Edgar's Field and the river and the property is the perfect lock up and leave.

      The property underwent a complete scheme of renovation in 2021 and the project was carried out with real skill and attention to detail. The work undertaken included installation of new double glazing, re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-plastering, new flooring throughout and reconfiguration of the internal living space on both floors. The new owner has further improved the property by laying the garden with astroturf, installing a security system, adding some fitted wardrobes and replacing the garage door.

      Downstairs is an entrance hallway with stairs up to the first floor and access through to the open-plan living space which is very bright with a large picture window overlooking the front of the property with lovely views across to St John's View and the River. There is a spacious seating area and useful understairs storage area. The dining area is to the side of the kitchen.

      The kitchen is very well-equipped with wall and base units, storage drawers, wine rack, breakfast bar and several Bosch integrated appliances. A cleverly designed concealed utility cupboard provides space for a washer/dryer, additional storage and a separate sink. There is a series of above eye level windows in the kitchen providing additional light and French doors open out to the courtyard garden which wraps around the property.

      Upstairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room.

      16 Salmon Leap has the benefit of a single garage with an additional parking space directly in front of the garage and there is also visitor parking and a residents' parking scheme.

    Much of the charm of this property lies in being able to step out of your front door and have immediate access to the River Dee and the lovely independent shops in Handbridge, it's a real lifestyle location and I absolutely love it.
