Enjoying an elevated position, situated on a ridge commanding the most spectacular views, Brynhill is situated in one of Cardiff's most exclusive and sought after locations. Lisvane village is a short distance away where there is a comprehensive general store and three pubs serving food. A commuter rail station affords a quick and convenient journey to the city centre and road communications are also excellent.
The original Brynhill Farmhouse built on the site in the 1930's was apparently designed by the prominent Cardiff architect T. Allwyn Lloyd. The building was extended and incorporated into a much larger house over the ensuing decades, until in 1989 it was purchased by the existing architect owner and his wife. Since then it has undergone total modernisation and further extension to create a family home which now totals almost 7,000 sq ft of accommodation, including an integral 4 car garage.
Most recently, the western end of the house was extended to form a multi-purpose suite suitable for use as work at home offices, games room and gymnasium, or a maid's/granny flat/guest suite.
The grounds of Brynhill Farm extend to 3 Â½ acres, including substantial lawned areas, a large floodlit pond as well as 2 paddocks, stables and a yard. A helicopter landing position exists on the main lawn. The house enjoys what many consider to be one of, if not the best view from any residential property in Cardiff. The view extends over the whole of the city and across the Severn Estuary to the English coastline beyond. Day and night time views of the city centre and Cardiff Bay are breathtaking.
Approached from an entrance lobby, the central hallway to the property provides a wide and welcoming entrance and gives access to the principal reception rooms. The house has been arranged so that each of the living rooms is positioned to command the spectacular views that are in abundance.
The large drawing room has a stone fireplace providing winter warmth whilst it also has french doors leading out onto the superb decking which runs the width of the rear of the property allowing maximum enjoyment of the view. The family sitting room at the front of the house provides a comfortable living space ideally suited to films and television.
The dining room has a tall vaulted ceiling featuring a galleried landing and this too has a picture window framing the view. A door from the dining room leads into the very spacious kitchen which has been comprehensively fitted with a quality range of units around a central island. Archways from here lead into the breakfast room, a breathtaking room with floor to ceiling windows and doors allowing a superb panorama of the gardens, city and beyond.
At the opposite end of the house is a large study and workroom which in turn leads through to a leisure suite. Here there is a games room and gym, well catered for by a modern kitchen area and shower room. This leisure suite, with its independent front entrance door, could easily be adapted as annexed accommodation if required.
There are four large bedrooms on the first floor, again each positioned at the front in order to enjoy the view. The master bedroom is especially large, featuring an exceptionally well fitted dressing room and large en-suite bathroom. The guest suite also provides a stylish en-suite bathroom whilst the extensively remodelled contemporary family bathroom services the remaining two bedrooms.
There are extensive storage areas at the property including store rooms and workshops plus a four car garage.
The gardens extend to approximately 3.5 acres and include beautifully tended gardens, extensive lawns, a large floodlit pond and two paddocks.
