Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase this truly wonderful 5 bedroom, plus study, detached residence set in 1.14 acres on Rhiwbina Hill in Cardiff. Sitting proudly at the summit of Rhiwbina Hill the property occupies a private, yet very accessible position with breath taking views across Coed y Wenallt and the Bristol Channel. The property dates back to 1824 and was originally built as a two storey dwelling that was subsequently extended in 1870 to create a wraparound extension and striking turret. The current owners have sympathetically renovated the property during their 25 year ownership and recent improvements include the building of a double garage, utility room and an undercover walkway to the front entrance. Within the grounds there is a beautiful garden, vegetable patch, chicken coup and extensive woodland. There is also a derelict cottage that offers a wonderful opportunity to be rebuilt and used as a summer house, subject to obtaining the relevant permissions. Beyond the grounds you have beautiful walks around the Wenallt and up to Caerphilly mountain where you will find an extensive path network through the beautiful countryside.

Local facilities are at Rhiwbina, a Garden Village which dates back to 1912. The village boasts a variety of shops and amenities and is easily reached by foot within 15 minutes or a two minute drive. Furthermore, the property is within catchment of the highly regarded primary and secondary schools.

The transport links are excellent with the M4 (J32) close by providing easy access to East or West. Cardiff City Centre has an extensive and diverse range of shops and facilities and is within easy reach by car or bus. Cardiff central train station provides fast and regular service to London Paddington in less than 2 hours. There are frequent bus services from the foot of Rhiwbina Hill as well as regular train services from Rhiwbina Garden Village and Coryton.
