Full description

Tucked away in a corner location this traditional semi-detached has been the subject of extensive works by the present owners since buying the house in 2007. Lots of basic work including rewiring, re-plastering, new single storey roof area, uPVC soffits, fascias and guttering, as well as creating a high standard of appointment including patio doors in the living room, tiled floors, new doors, coving, hardwood internal French doors, new fitted kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom and a new family room. The overall result is a good sized property but still with scope to extend over the family room/garage subject to any necessary consents being obtained. Downs View is a cul-de-sac and number 12 is nicely tucked away in a corner location with a good sized garden enjoying those delightful south westerly views. Village facilities within walking distance include two village pubs, village hall, ninety acres or so of common land known as The Downs. The market town of Cowbridge is within comfortable walking distance via a pavement past Cowbridge School. Facilities in the market town of Cowbridge include schooling of excellent reputation for all ages, a wide range of shops both national and local, library, health centre, sporting and recreational facilities including leisure centre, cricket club, tennis club, squash club, bowls club, etc. Aberthin is situated in the heart of the rural Vale of Glamorgan with the Heritage Coastline just a few miles to the south. The good local road network brings major centres including the capital city of Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bridgend, Llantrisant, Barry, etc all within comfortable commuting distance.
