Fall in love with Cardiff

February 1, 2024

As a local independent estate agent, we have been helping customers buy, sell and rent homes in Cardiff for over 50 years. We know the city like the back of our hand and whether it’s a first home, a forever home or a business venture, we have successfully supported quests for both residential and commercial properties in the capital.

Here are three of our favourite spots for you to fall in love with:


The properties

From stunning Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian properties to equally spacious apartments, houses and town houses, Whitchurch has it all. Semi-detached properties made up the majority of house sales over the last year and this type of property is also sought after in the residential rental market. The average house price in the suburb is around £323,000.

The community

Whitchurch is a first-class village for families and foodies alike. The area boasts fantastic English and Welsh medium schools including Whitchurch High School which has produced sporting legends like Gareth Bale, Geraint Thomas and Sam Warburton. For food connoisseurs, the village allows you to explore dishes from around the world with its numerous cafés, pubs and restaurants. Try Pizzeria Villaggio, Mowgli’s, The Brook Bistro and more to treat your tastebuds!


The properties

Home to a mix of period properties and modern developments, the suburb of Radyr to the north of the city has become one of the most desirable places to live in south Wales. Detached properties were the most popular sales last year but there are a variety of property types on the market. The average house price in the area is around £389,000.

The community

Radyr has become a family favourite with good schools, a variety of sports clubs, excellent transport links and delicious independent eateries like Cicchetti and Slice on your doorstep.

Love to be active and get outdoors? Then Radyr is the place for you! Radyr Woods, a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation, has around 14 acres to explore through a network of well-maintained footpaths and boardwalks.


The properties

According to Rightmove, the majority of sales last year were for semi-detached houses but the village is home to many different property types. Homes we are currently selling in the area include well maintained apartments, charming semi-detached houses and striking detached houses. Like Whitchurch, the average house price stands at around £323,000. Bungalows, terraced houses and flats are the most popular on the residential rental market but exclusive opportunities to rent larger detached properties do also appear.

The community

Rhiwbina is a close-knit community and hosts events throughout the year for the whole village to participate in. This local feel is evident on the high street which has become a haven for independent cafés, gift shops, clothing stores and even an art workshop!
