Full description

An interesting modern detached house offering considerable flexibility of layout. At present there
are four reception rooms, including conservatory, and an impressive first floor living room with
balcony enjoying attractive rural view. The kitchen has been well fitted and there is a cloakroom. At
present there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms including a master ground floor suite of
bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. Although the bedroom three upstairs is designed to easily
be split into two bedrooms if a four bedroom format was required. The property enjoys the benefit of
full natural gas central heating and double glazing. There is a sizeable garage attached to the front
of the house which is currently fitted out and insulated as a music room, and ample parking on the
long driveway leading to the house. The property stands in an attractively secluded garden at the
end of a long driveway and is pleasantly tucked away backing on to fields. Good local village
facilities just a few minutes walk away including Post Office/General Store, village pub, etc. More
extensive facilities at Llantwit Major are just a few minutes drive further away. The good local road
network brings major centres including the capital city of Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bridgend,
Llantrisant, etc all within easy commuting distance. The recently re-opened railway station on the
line connecting Cardiff and Bridgend offers a most useful alternative. The Heritage Coastline
including Llantwit Major town beach is a short distance to the south.
