SITUATION Llanblethian has long been regarded as one of the Vale of Glamorgan's foremost residential areas offering as it does a very pretty Village-style setting with a combination of individual old and new houses and narrow winding Streets. The Market Town of Cowbridge is within walking distance and offers an excellent range of local facilities including a wide variety of shops - both national and local - library, health centre, quality restaurants and public houses, leisure facilities and well regarded schools at all levels. 

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY Hir Pob Aros is an outstanding, contemporary residence designed by award winning architect Chris Loyn and located in a splendid setting within its own gardens and grounds of just over an acre bordered by the River Thaw and enjoying uninterruped, southerly views over open countryside. The property is one of four executive houses situated on a select development at Llanblethian Court on the site of former agricultural barns. The architectural features reflect this rural heritage including aspects such as the impressive glass entrance doors to the property resembling the large cart door openings of thresher barns and the distinct exterior referencing the traditional limewashed colours of welsh farmhouses and barns.

The spectacular and luxurious accommodation has been extended and refurbished by the current owners to provide airy and spacious accommodation and now boasts 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Entrance to the property is via a vestibule with beautifully polished crema marfil limestone flooring enclosed by 8' high iroko double doors, which lead into an impressive reception hall. The hall extends through a 13' opening (which can be enclosed by bi-fold iroko doors) into an outstanding dinlng/reception room with large vaulted ceiling, wood burner and galleried landing. This space is fantastically versatile offering a large open plan aspect for entertaining but can be enclosed into distinct living areas. French doors open out onto the delightful gardens with glorious views of the river and farmland beyond.

Further features include a generously sized sitting room with 'Dovre' woodburning stove and floor to ceiling windows and French doors opening out onto a charming paved terrace and gardens. A newly fitted kitchen comprehensively fitted with a quality range of handmade units, there is a host of integrated appliances including two dishwashers, plus a white 'Total Control' three oven Aga (which can be programmed remotely). An opening from the kitchen leads to a dramatic and large conservatory/garden room constructed primarily in Iroko double glazed windows and doors with fantastic high ceilings. This room again provides flexible scope for alternative uses. Wooden blinds and rotating 'Stuv' 30 wood burner create a wonderfully cosy space in the Autumn and Winter months whilst in the summer the room is incredibly light and airy with French windows opening out on to a substantial decked area with board walk pathway splitting into two ornamental ponds all of which is beautifully planted with mature flower beds and shrubbery. A study, two cloakrooms and utility room with rear hall complete the ground floor accommodation.

The first floor is accessed independently by two separate staircases. The first of these, the property's principal, is a fine Iroko staircase leading to a stunning gallery space providing access to four generous sized bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms. There is a family bathroom serving the remaining two. The master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows, a recently fitted bathroom and French doors which lead out on to a delightful balcony with superb views of garden and countryside beyond. The second staircase, accessed from the rear hall provides access to a further two bedrooms (one currently used as a playroom) and a bathroom and could easily be adapted into a self-contained annex. 

GARDENS AND GROUNDS Outside, the property enjoys a setting of about 1 acre or thereabouts. To the fore is a large pea gravelled courtyard, which leads round to the side garden and provides scope for further development if required and subject to any appropriate permissions. From the side garden there is a tall gated fence which leads to the exceptionally well tended, mature gardens surrounding the property, including terraces and lawns, enjoying privacy and views. There is a small section of paddock included for sale on the opposite side of the river. 

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. All mains services connect to the property.
