SITUATION The popular Village of Ystradowen is only a few minutes drive from the Historic Market Town of Cowbridge. Commuting to Cardiff, Bridgend and Llantrisant is easy with access to the M4 Motorway at Junction 34 some 5 miles away. The Village of Ystradowen falls within the School catchment area of the well regarded Cowbridge Secondary School and Primary schooling is available at the Llansannor "Mountain School". There is a local pre-School playgroup held in the Village Hall and the Village also enjoys a public house and a Church together with a garage / petrol station with a small shop. The Market Town of Cowbridge provides an excellent range of shops and services to suit all needs and leisure activities are well catered for in the leisure centre, tennis club, squash club, cricket and rugby clubs. The Heritage Coastline is a short distance away and there are numerous high standard golf courses within the area. The Capital City of Cardiff includes a comprehensive range of retail and commercial facilities, theatres, etc., and a main-line rail connection to London in around two hours. 

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY Ashfield is a stunning, unique home crafted within the last 10 years by the current Owners and using quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The thoughtfully considered accommodation offers great adaptability. A particularly imposing, double height glazed entrance hallway is overlooked by a galleried landing above, with a hand crafted, accent lit staircase leading to the first floor. Doors from here open into a cloakroom and also to a study, from which there is access to a paved seating area to one side of the property. Double doors continue through into the largest living room, a generous multi-purpose space with solid wood floor, a brick fire surround with solid wood over mantel beam and woodburner within. Broad swathes of floor to ceiling windows look out over, and give access to, a sheltered side patio and to the rear garden. A door continues from the lounge into a large kitchen-dining living space, a family sized room with ample space for a dining table and further seating. The solid wood kitchen includes both granite and wooden worktops and a custom made recess houses a two-oven, gas fired 'Rayburn' range cooker. Like the hallway, the kitchen has a tiled floor which extends into and adjacent utility room. This provides further storage, has space / plumbing for a washing machine and a 'back door' to he driveway and front elevation.

To the first floor, a galleried landing looking back into the vestibule hallway has doors leading to all five double bedrooms. The principal, master bedroom includes a dressing room and luxurious en suite shower room. The bedroom area itself has a private balcony enjoying very pleasant views over the paddock. A second, guest bedroom is also en suite. The three other double bedrooms all have use of an especially impressive family bathroom with deep, contemporary bath, a separate shower and bespoke mosaic decoration to one wall.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS From its lane frontage, a broad, gated entrance opens to a generous parking area fronting the property. From here, there is access to the garage block, with the driveway curving to one side of the garage and leading, via a wooden five bar gate, into the adjoining paddock. Flagstone paving fronts the property from which there is access to the especially impressing entrance hall, and through picket fencing to a paved seating area accessed from both the study and the family; and to a further paved area leading into the utility room. To the rear of the property is a larger garden space. This is again accessed from the living room and also from the kitchen-dining room. It is a sheltered, private garden including paved seating and lawn.

The detached garage block has been subdivided to provide a useful storage area to the front accessed via a roller shutter door. A side door leads into the largest portion of the garage (approx. max 5.6m x 4.8m), a multi-purpose space previously used as an office but now used as a games room. It is sloping in parts and to its crest is planted with maturing trees: it affords lovely views from here back over the paddock onto Ashfield and over the Village.

The adjoining paddock is about 1.1 acres and is enclosed by fencing / hedging.

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. All mains services connected to the property. Underfloor heating throughout.
