5 bedroom detached house for sale
Superb master suite of bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. Four further bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, two of which are on the ground floor so flexible accommodation. Two large garages. Delightful garden. Gas fired central heating. uPVC double glazed. Freehold.
DIRECTIONS: From our offices head down the High Street into Westgate. Archway House is about half way down on your right hand side with the name above the archway which leads through the garage block to the house behind. There is not a David Birt & Company board outside.
INTRODUCTION: Archway House was completed at the end of 2000 for the present owner who wanted to move into town with all the convenience that offers but without compromising in terms of the size and quality of accommodation. They bought a bungalow on Westgate with a large garden and converted the bungalow into a substantial garage block with a central archway leading through to the new house that they built behind in the back garden. The location is ideal being tucked away yet within a level short walk of the town centre and its excellent facilities. These include well regarded schooling for children of all ages including rebuilt comprehensive, a wide range of shops both national and local, recently refurbished library, new state-of-the-art health centre, sporting and recreational facilities including leisure centre, cricket club, tennis club, squash club, bowls club, etc. Cowbridge is an attractive market town situated in the heart of the rural Vale of Glamorgan with the Heritage Coastline just a few miles to the south. The good local road network brings major centres including the capital city of Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bridgend, Llantrisant, Barry, all within comfortable commuting distance. There are main line railway stations at Bridgend and Cardiff and Cardiff Wales Airport is within easy driving distance.
The design brief of the house was to not compromise on the size of rooms but also to retain a degree of flexibility. There are five bedrooms all of which have en-suite facilities including a splendid master suite which has an additional dressing room. Usefully two of the suites are on the ground floor so could be used as additional living space, granny flat, etc. There are three reception rooms including a wonderfully large almost square drawing room with big bay leading out to the west terrace, splendid dining room and large sitting room/breakfast room open plan with the hand built Goodman kitchen. This latter arrangement works particularly well and very much in keeping of the modern idea of the kitchen being a living space as well as a working space. Leading off from the kitchen is a large utility room and beyond that a useful wine store/pantry. The property enjoys the benefit of full mains fired central heating and is double glazed. The standard of appointment and finish is as you would expect in a house of this quality. Outside there is an entrance courtyard laid to Cotswold chippings which provides plenty of space for visitor parking. A covered gated archway set between the two large garages leads through to an inner courtyard and garden laid principally to brick paviers and providing additional parking and garden area. The gates are remote controlled.
Properties of this quality both in terms of location and standard of appointment and accommodation rarely become available within Cowbridge town and inspection is thoroughly recommended.
