SITUATION The Village of Colwinston is positioned within gently rolling countryside and contains a number of period houses, St. David's Church in Wales Primary School, Church, public house, village hall and cricket and sports ground. The village is also within the catchment area for Cowbridge Comprehensive School. Although enjoying the benefits of a rural community, the Village is accessible to the nearby towns of Cowbridge and Bridgend. The City of Cardiff is also within reach via the A48 road and the M4 Motorway (Junction 35) at Pencoed provides access to other major commercial centres in the region.  

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY In a wonderfully sheltered location, Twmpath Farm is an ideal family home thought to be over 300 years old. It has, in more recent years, been extended and now offers extensive family accommodation with a great degree of flexibility and adaptability that must be viewed to be appreciated. It is being offered for sale with gardens and grounds of about 1.2 acres; and an adjoining 0.9 acre or thereabouts paddock.

To the heart of the original farmhouse is a lounge with woodburner within a deep fireplace; double doors open to a large dining room, again enjoying a southerly aspect and looking over the principal garden. The same gardens are accessed directly from the lounge and from the hallway, and also overlooked by the kitchen and its adjoining utility room. The original kitchen for the property is now used as a home office and includes a period range. An additional family sitting room is a more modern addition and has a very high, pitched ceiling and potential for wood burner to be installed within the existing fireplace.

To the first floor, all four principal double bedrooms enjoy a southerly aspect, looking over the garden and surrounding farmland. The master bedroom suit includes a large en suite bathroom and a dressing room / possible fifth bedroom which could be independently accessed from the landing. The landing area is galleried in part and features a study area, wardrobes and eaves storage spaces.  

GARDENS AND GROUNDS From its lane frontage, there is access to Twmpath Farm via an initial section of driveway shared only with The Old Granary, the neighbouring property. This short section then continues onto a much longer gravel-chipped, tree-lined driveway belonging solely to Twmpath. This sweeps past a garage block and a large area of lawn and continues to a parking and turning area fronting the property. A wooden five bar gate leads into the adjoining paddock which is about 0.9 of an acre and is included within the sale. The driveway and the land to its north and western sides is wooded and provides great shelter and screening from the nearby A48. To the north-west corner of the grounds is a bronze-age burial mound.

The principal garden space is located to the original front of the property and is a lovely private, sheltered space enjoying a sunny southerly aspect, overlooked by all four main bedrooms and living rooms, and is accessed directly from the lounge and the hallway. It includes a very pleasant, flagstone paved seating area fronting the property beyond which is a well maintained lawn, screened from neighbouring fields by hedging and mature trees; and from the paddock by waist high stone walling. The gardens and grounds measure about 1.2 acres.

The garage block is a large additional space (approx. max 7.6m x 7m) entered via 3 remote-controlled, electric roller shutter doors. Adjoining this is a stable block (approx. 4.6m x 3.8m) with lean-to wood store beyond.  

TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric and water connect to the property. Oil-fired central heating. Septic tank drainage. 

DIRECTIONS From our Cowbridge Office, travel in a westerly direction along the A48. Pass Pentre Meyrick Cross and, after approximately 1/2 a mile take the left hand turning signposted for Colwinston. The turning into Twmpath Farm will be to your left, after about 100 yards.
