BRIEF DESCRIPTION With the most outstanding views over the rolling Vale countryside only 4.2 miles from Cowbridge, a detached former school house converted in more recent years and offering family friendly extensive accommodation. Large hallway, kitchen-living-dining space, sitting room, study and fantastic garden room with southerly aspect and positioned to maximise the benefit from the southerly views. To the first floor master bedroom with en-suite shower room, second en-suite guest bedroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A sizeable garden plot including decked and paved seating areas, productive vegetable garden and lawn. Off-road parking and garage.  

SITUATION The small hamlet of St. Mary Hill lies in the north western corner of the Vale of Glamorgan, amidst attractive gently rolling countryside. While enjoying the benefits of a small rural community the property is within easy distance of the M4 J35 for commuting to the Cities of Cardiff, Swansea & beyond & the A48 for the towns of Cowbridge and Bridgend. There are also main line railway stations at nearby Bridgend, Cardiff Central and Pencoed (3.2 miles) providing fast, direct access to London Paddington.

The property has the significant advantage of being close to Llangan Village and within the catchment of the very highly rated Llangan Primary School and also Cowbridge Comprehensive School.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY The Old Schoolhouse is a unique property that has, in more recent years, been extended and reconfigured by the current owners to provide thoughtfully considered family accommodation and to maximise the outstanding views. An entrance porch leads through into a large ground floor hallway. From here, a staircase leads to the first floor bedrooms while a broad opening leads down to the south facing garden room and double doors lead to the kitchen-dining-living space; an additional doorway opens to a study beyond which is the integral garage. The principal reception room for the property is a superb south facing garden room created by the current owners and positioned to get maximum benefit from that panoramic rural view. This multi-purpose space is close to 10 meters long with engineered oak flooring and a central 'Clearview' wood burner. Broad windows overlooking the garden with two sets of patio doors, one leading to the south facing decked seating area and a second set of double doors to a west facing paved patio. The kitchen is also a particularly impressive space being fitted with a good range of units with solid granite tops and a breakfast bar. A fitted larder provides significant extra storage. A Neff oven and Neff hob are to remain while there is space for a low level fridge and plumbing for a dishwasher. The kitchen retains ample space for a dining table and seating area. A broad window looks from here into the side garden through a rear entrance porch/utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a drier. There is a connecting door to the western side of the property and an additional door to a cloakroom which houses the gas central heating boiler. The kitchen also links in to a second sitting room located to the rear of the property currently configured as a home cinema room.

From the landing area, doors lead to all the bedrooms and to the family bathroom. The largest of the bedrooms is a dual aspect room with views to the south and west over own gardens and farmland. There is a range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. A second, especially large, bedroom also includes an en-suite shower room. Of the three further bedrooms, two enjoy a southerly aspect over the surrounding area while a fifth includes good fitted storage. They all share use of a family bathroom.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS Set within a good proportioned garden plot, The Old Schoolhouse is lucky to have a south and westerly aspect looking over its own gardens onto fields and farmland. These outstanding views must be viewed to be fully appreciated. From a road to the side of the property, a pillared entrance leads to an off-road parking area and driveway which, in turn, leads into the large garage through an up and over door. The largest section of the garden is to the front of the property and is overlooked by the garden room. From here double doors lead down to a large decked seating area beyond which is a broad sweep of lawn bordered by stone walling and hedging. Immediately to the west of the property and overlooked by the kitchen there is a productive vegetable garden and, at the lawn level, two interconnecting storage sheds, the largest being approx. max 6.4m x 2.8m. 

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric and water connect to the property. LPG central heating. Cesspit drainage. 

DIRECTIONS From Cowbridge proceed in a westerly direction along the A48 and at the first cross roads by the Hamlet of Pentre Meyrick turn right. Continue north along this road, passing Llangan School and carry on further for approximately half a mile turning left after Fferm Goch where indicated to St. Mary Hill. Travel along this lane for about half a mile, bearing left at the next junction. The Old School House will be on the corner of the next lane, after a further 300 yards.
