Let $\Omega$ denote the first uncountable ordinal.

Let $\Gamma$ be a limit ordinal which strictly precedes $\Omega$.

Let $\closedint 0 \Gamma$ denote the closed ordinal space on $\Gamma$.

Then $\closedint 0 \Gamma$ is a metrizable space.


From Countable Closed Ordinal Space is Second-Countable, $\closedint 0 \Gamma$ has a basis which is $\sigma$-locally finite.

From Ordinal Space is Completely Normal, $\closedint 0 \Gamma$ is a completely normal space.

From Sequence of Implications of Separation Axioms it follows that $\closedint 0 \Gamma$ is a regular space.

The result follows from Metrizable iff Regular and has Sigma-Locally Finite Basis.
