INTRODUCTION: Boverton Mill comprises three stone built barns originally part of Boverton Mill Farm previously owned by the Prince of Wales. The barn conversions were completed about three years ago and designed to take full advantage of this most spectacular location with wide open views for many many miles over the Vale of Glamorgan countryside down to the Heritage Coastline and to the Bristol Channel and Somerset beyond. In more recent times the present owner has carried out additional works particularly to the landscape and grounds and has enhanced the spectacular setting of these properties. The Mill provides a most attractive fusion of modern standard of appointment and finish with traditional character and the design is very much in keeping with the modern fashion for large downstairs rooms with the main living room some 37' x 16' and the kitchen/dining room/family room some 31'6" x 16'. Additionally downstairs there is a large reception hall some 16'3" x 16' together with utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Mill enjoys the benefit of underfloor full gas (LPG) central heating and is double glazed.
