Property Description

Full description

David Ricketts and Co are pleased to offer for sale this very substantial five/six double bedroom farmhouse, converted, extended and upgraded within the past ten years with potential for further bedroom accommodation and entertaining space for a large family or STPP as a bed and breakfast. Set in glorious countryside just 30 minutes from Cardiff city centre the house features a huge living room with massive stone built fireplace and a 36' kitchen/breakfast room, both with underfloor heated Welsh slate, a high ceilinged master bedroom suite with dressing room, two further bathrooms and a bar leading out on to the terrace. The plot, of nearly 2.5 acres, also offers sufficient paddock space for two horses, a three room storage/stable block and a 2400 sq ft barn with potential for an equine based business or conversion as an annexe to the main house. Good local primary schools and shops are close by and it is only a short drive to the multiple retail stores and amenities of Llantrisant and Bridgend. Set a third of a mile off the road via a shared access road this would be the ideal home for an active family with plenty of space for domestic pets and horses and a dedicated cycling route running within 500 yards of the property.

The property has mains electricity, telephone, broadband connection, a private spring water supply, LPG central heating and biodisc sewage treatment (vendor advises annual cost to empty is approximately £25). Plans have been drawn up for conversion of the adjacent barn as an annexe (NOT a separate dwelling) to include three bedrooms, a sauna and Jacuzzi. Malpas Meadows is the furthest of three properties on a road/track shared with the two other homes.
