…By Judah Olanisebee for TDPel Media. Mid-Century Gem: Cardiff Home Offers Original Features and Renovation Potential


Finding a mid-century house with authentic original features is becoming increasingly challenging for those interested in the trendy interior design style.

However, a four-bedroom family home in Cardiff’s suburb of Rumney presents a rare opportunity for mid-century enthusiasts.

Owned by the same family since its construction, this detached house holds sentimental value and is now on the market for the first time, allowing a new owner to renovate and update while potentially preserving some of its original mid-century design.


A Beloved Family Home with History Located on a popular residential road near Ysgol Bro Eirwg, a Welsh language primary school, the house was built by the seller’s grandfather, Cosmo Pesticcio, who lived in it his entire life.

After his passing, Cosmo’s brother Richie became the resident, cementing the house’s status as a cherished family abode.

Renovation Potential and Features The property offers a chance for a new owner to transform and update the house, while retaining some of its mid-century charm.

With ample off-road parking and a double garage that can be repurposed, there are practical advantages as well.

The central hallway leads to a spacious living area running the depth of the house, featuring patio doors that open to the rear garden.


Sliding glass doors connect it to the dining room, which may require replacement for safety reasons if it is original.

Original Kitchen, Utility Room, and Potential Garage Conversion Adjacent to the dining room is the original kitchen, adding to the home’s vintage appeal.

A utility room complements the kitchen, offering convenient space.

Towards the front of the house, there is a study and cloakroom, providing an opportunity for expansion by merging with a converted garage.

Spacious Bedrooms and Nostalgic Memories Upstairs, the house boasts four well-sized bedrooms and a distinct blue bathroom.


Characteristic of mid-century design, the rooms are spacious, square, or rectangular, with picture windows allowing abundant natural light.

Seller Lisa Williams reminisces about the house’s history as a gathering place for a large family, hosting events, parties, and creating cherished memories during Christmas celebrations.

Conclusion: Offered for sale at around £380,000, this frozen-in-time mid-century house presents a unique chance to own a property with original features and renovation potential.

Peter Alan in Rumney handles the sale, and those interested can contact them for further information.

The house’s rich family history and its potential to blend nostalgia with modernization make it a captivating opportunity for mid-century design enthusiasts and prospective homeowners seeking a touch of timeless charm.
