Tenure: Freehold

An historic thatched family home situated within the village of Moulton in a peaceful rural setting.



Ty Uchaf is a beautifully presented thatched property dating back to the 15th century. With an abundance of considerable character and charm, boasting medieval features, it is reputed to be one of the oldest inhabited residences in the Vale of Glamorgan. History on this property has been extremely interesting as its written in "Moulton Folk law" that the great Oliver Cromwell once stayed in the property during the civil war.


The property has been attentively and sumptuously refurbished whilst retaining and restoring the period character and now offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a large, well-appointed family house of character with a country feel yet benefitting from a village community.

The accommodation is set out in a linear fashion, reminiscent of a Welsh longhouse, so that each of its principal rooms overlook the wonderful large garden and the countryside beyond.

The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with flagstone floor, inglenook fireplace and medieval stone staircase leading to the first floor. The dual aspect drawing room has exposed timber floor and an exposed beam ceiling, a 2 sided wood-burning stove and French doors opening onto the rear courtyard.

The living room and sitting room are divided by a central 2 sided wood-burning stove with flagstone floors and exposed beam ceilings, a turning staircase takes you upstairs.

The kitchen/diner is a fantastic space with flagstone floor and a bespoke fitted kitchen with wall and base units. Integrated appliances including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine, electric oven, 4 ring gas hob with extractor over and a four oven Aga. A cloakroom with WC can be found off the kitchen.

To the first floor are five bedrooms, two of which boast en suite facilities, and a family bathroom. All bedrooms have countryside and garden views.

The property is entered via electric gates onto a cobbled driveway with parking for numerous vehicles and leading to a triple thatched garage with three sets of oak doors. The garage has an external stone staircase leading to the first floor with potential for an annex subject to planning.

The property is situated centrally on the plot given spacious lawn and patio areas to all aspects. The garden is mature with tree borders and gives a real countryside feel. Additionally, there is a stone outbuilding and summerhouse.

Please note, the thatched roof was replaced in 2015.
