Serving drinks to his guests on the terrace or dishing up delicious meals in the kitchen, the owner of The Barns is in his element whenever he spends time at his Pontyclun home.
A seasoned traveller, he bought the handsome Grade II Listed building and oversaw its conversion in order to give himself a wonderful home to return to.
He wanted to have a base that was close to his family, explained his sister, who also stays there as often as possible.
He has made it into a truly beautiful home, which looks wonderful but also still has a homely feel.
The two beautiful stone buildings were in a perfect location, close to a village yet in a tranquil setting, she went on.
My brother liked the idea of being able to start from scratch with a home, she explained. He knew he would be able to create a house from the barns that he could really relax in - yet at the same time be within easy reach of his family and of major roads so he could travel easily.
He was, also taken with the potential of the barns, the fabulous spaces they offered and their magnificent character.
He knew it would still feel like a barn, particularly with all the beams and stonework, she said. It was large building that was clearly built for someone wealthy.
There is now a row of beautiful windows along the side in what must half been original archways.
Open Plan Style
The owner, who has lived in America, designed his home to have an open plan feel. He wanted a kitchen where he could talk to his guests while he cooked for them and living spaces that would flow easily.
My brother is a great cook and so he loves his kitchen. People can be in there while he prepares meals - he loves the fact they can move from area to area, she said.
The whole house has an incredible feeling of space, she went on, with vaulted ceilings and high windows which bring the light streaming in.
The drawing room is double height and is wonderful for entertaining. He hosted my 80th birthday party at the house and it was amazing, she said.
The Barns has an exquisite interior, carefully designed by the owner to marry modern style with rustic charm. Areas of exposed stonework are complemented with light walls, beautiful furnishings and lots of wood.
The master bedroom is very impressive. It is huge - a gorgeous area with an en suite bathroom and dressing area, she said.
There's also a lovely guest suite. This is also a large room. It has lots of character, with three steps up to its bathroom, and is very pretty with its stone walls and cute windows.
When the sun is out, the family enjoy gathering together in the garden at The Barns. The beautiful country house is greatly enjoyed by all of them but as the owner is now finding he has to travel more, he has decided the time has come to sell.
I think he will miss all the space he has inside the house, said his sister. It is a wonderful home and I know he has thoroughly enjoyed every opportunity he has had to spend time there.
The first glimpse of The Barns with its immaculate and impressive frontage instantly captures your attention and raises expectations as to what lies behind the wonderful exterior. Stepping inside you find yourself in bright reception hall, exposed stone walls and timber flooring generate an abundance of character and a bespoke timber staircase leads to the first floor. The stone walls and timber flooring continue through into the sitting room, creating a wonderful place for relaxed family gatherings. The outstanding drawing room with its fabulous vaulted ceiling and beautiful fireplace is truly breathtaking and will make a fantastic impact. Stunning arched windows allow natural light to bathe the room, while French Windows open out onto the charming terrace and pretty terrace beyond, creating an easy flow perfect for entertaining guests.
Returning to the hall a door leads into a glorious bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, a plethora of attractive cabinets provide plenty of storage, while a central island generates plenty of space to prepare meals and an exquisite floor to ceiling window frames lovely views of the side garden. A separate utility room completes this ground floor.
Ascending the stairs to the first floor you locate four magnificent bedrooms. The master suite is a luxurious expanse and has a decadent freestanding bath in the bedroom. While also boasting a separate dressing room, this is a superb haven to relax and unwind. Each of the remaining bedrooms are delightful and presented to a high standard.
Setting the scene

Here the owner has enjoyed relaxing at the weekend with his newspapers and a cup of coffee.
It feels very secluded, as if you are miles away from anything, said his sister. There is a real sense of privacy when you are out there.
She added: The garden is not huge but it is very pretty. The lawns are lovely and there are lots of birds.
