The Story

BEAUTIFUL ROOMS
The ground floor of Star House features a generous central reception hall, with a moulded flagstone floor. This leads into the drawing room, dining room, kitchen breakfast room and cloakroom; the kitchen, in turn, leads through to the utility room and snug, while the drawing room opens into the library, where there is a beautiful fitted bookcase.Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms; the sumptuous master suite includes an exceptional bathroom, as well as a bank of fitted wardrobes.“This bathroom was a bedroom originally but we knocked through and completely transformed it,” she says. “It is a beautiful bathroom, which has been finished to a very high standard.”

ADDITIONAL SPACE
Work to the house has seen a substantial refurbishment and all the bathrooms refitted. The second floor has been the subject of recent upgrade with increased insulation, creating two bedrooms and a shower room. An attractive triple garage with rooms above has been designed and built to blend in with the 1930s’ style of the house. This is connected to the main house by a veranda, which has access to a store room and gardener’s cloakroom.
“The garage has a large space on the top floor, which could have all sorts of uses: it could be adapted to become an annexe, offering additional accommodation, or it could be perfect as an office.” The garage was designed with separate heating system and plumbing to accommodate conversion into a kitchen and lounge on the ground floor with a bathroom and bedroom to the first floor.

STUNNING KITCHEN
But the jewel in the crown at Star House is the kitchen, which was substantially upgraded by the current owners.“My kitchen is my ‘wow room,’” she says. “I designed it myself so it blends in with the rest of the interiors here and is in keeping with the age of the house. The Aga was refurbished and painted cream and there are granite work surfaces and cream wall and floor units.” Like the hall, this room has a moulded flagstone floor; other features include the likes of a stainless-steel inset hob, built-in electric oven and grill, and microwave, a double Belfast sink and an integral dishwasher and larder fridge. There is a central island and built-in wine cabinet. The room is arranged with generous space for food preparation and dining, and has a door on to the garden.

GLORIOUS GARDENS
The gardens are still something of a feature at Star House, offering a magnificent and serene backdrop for outside dining, relaxation and entertaining. Leafy, mature trees include oak, beech and willow, and attractive shrubs like rhododendrons, line the lawns and pretty pathways. There is a large terrace, which captures the south-facing views out across the countryside. “The gardens are very beautiful,” she adds. “The grounds are entered via electric gates, designed in an Art Nouveau style leading to a circular drive set around raised octagonal feature pond. A paved area also provides ample parking. There is also an octagonal summer house cleverly positioned to benefit from morning and evening sun which is ideal for alfresco dining.”

COUNTRY AND CITY
Star House feels like a world of its own, surrounded by picturesque countryside, and with access to the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. “I have loved living in this area,” says the owner. “We can go on walks out over the fields and yet we are just 15 or 20 minutes from the centre of Cardiff.” Nearby are Radyr and Creigiau Golf clubs, Radyr Tennis Club, Livery Stables off Star Lane, Pentrych Village, pubs and the rugby club. With access to J34 of M4 in 10 minutes. “I am hoping to stay in the area when I leave Star House – this is a beautiful place to live.”
