SUMMARY A unique property with 5 double bedrooms that must be viewed for the scope of the accommodation of close to 2400 sq ft to be most fully appreciated. Lounge, Second sitting / dining area, superb kitchen-dining room running nearly the full width of the property, also ground floor shower room. To the first floor: master bedroom with en suite bathroom, four further double bedrooms and bathroom. Enclosed forecourt garden and low maintenance garden to rear with ample off road parking. Large double garage with store beyond. Also large workshop attached to main property. 

SITUATION Gileston is situated off the B4265 coastal road and includes a Historic Church and Manor House, plus a number of character cottages and more modern houses. The neighbouring Village of St. Athan offers some local shops, a Primary School, doctors surgery and pharmacy. The Town of Llantwit Major is approximately three and a half miles to the west and offers a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants, a leisure centre with swimming pool, comprehensive school and a "park and ride" railway station with access to Cardiff and Bridgend.  

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY Thought to date from the 1930's, Westward has, in more recent years, been significantly extended and now offers close to 2400 square foot of living accommodation and much storage. The flexible accommodation has great adaptability and would suit a growing family or multi-generational living. To the ground floor, a lounge and a sitting room both look over the front garden. An inner lobby with storage cupboards has a utility room and shower room off and leads through to a vast kitchen-dining space running almost the entire width of the property. This, in turn, opens into a conservatory, from which there is access to the garden and also to a sizable workshop (approx max 10.8m x 2.8m). This has much potential to be incorporated as extra accommodation if required.

To the first floor a master bedroom with en suite bathroom looks over the rear garden. A second, very large double bedroom looks over the same. There are three further double bedrooms, two of which look to the front elevation. These bedrooms have use of a family bathroom with bath over shower.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS To the front of the property, a gated entrance from Gileston Road leads to a path running through a low maintenance garden to the front, entrance doorway. The garden is mainly of flint chippings and includes mature flower and shrub beds.

A track to the northern side of Westward leads to the much larger garden to the rear of the property. Double width doors lead to this space. It is screened from the roadway by high wooden fencing and is mainly block paved with parking for several cars and edged by flower and shrub borders and including an ornamental fish pond. The garage block (approx. max 6.9m x 6m), to the eastern end of the garden is an extremely large space accessed via two sets of up and over doors. Power and water are connected and it is understood to have double-depth foundations and brickwork. A doorway to its rear leads to a small yard area and timber built store shed (approx. 2m x 2m).  

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric, water and gas connect to the property. Cess pit drainage. Solar panels supplement the hot water for the property. Separate solar panels provide a generous extra income via a feed-in tariff. Further information available.
