Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive home with outstanding far reaching views, a treasure trove of secret gardens, a room for every member of the family, architecturally designed and lots of history all come as part and parcel of Warren House with no onward chain.

Full details

As you enter the drive you get a glimpse of the wonderful home that awaits you. Dating back to approximately 1846 the elevated facade is set within 1.2 acres of land and has living accommodation of 3,816 of sqft. Walk up the drive, which can accommodate six cars and enter the home through the bright and warming sun lounge/hallway which serves as the main access point of the home. There is beautiful stone flooring and underfloor heating. From here you will instantly see the first of an abundance of original features that grab your attention in this striking home.


From the sun lounge/hallway you will see ahead of you the original part of Warren House. The living room is a feast for the eyes where original features remain including the original stone staircase (now not in use) to the focal point of the multi fuel stove and bread oven. You can imagine relaxing here with the fire roaring and the underfloor heating keeping your toes warm on the stunning Oak flooring.


Next to the main living area is an additional room which is currently being used as an office but would suit as reading room, a family snug or play room for the children. It has space for an additional wood burning stove, Oak flooring and underfloor heating.


Leading off from the sun room/hallway you enter the large kitchen and dining room which provides a fantastic entertaining space for family and friends. The underfloor heating continues through here and there is further access to the garden from the French doors where your guests can be entertained whilst enjoying vast views across Cardiff City and beyond. The bespoke kitchen includes an American style fridge freezer, a range cooker and beautiful granite worktops.


There is nothing quite like having a room big enough for all those extra daily home duties like clothes washing and storing wet coats and boots. The large utility room is conveniently accessed from the kitchen and has underfloor heating and a newly fitted oil fired central heating boiler. To the right there is access to the large slate tiled wet room/cloakroom which is perfect for washing down your four legged friends or mucky children after those long country walks.

Lets explore the first floor


Head to the first floor from the living room and up the Oak wood staircase where you can access four bedrooms from the long landing. There are fitted storage cupboards and further stairs leading to the top floor master bedroom suite, bedroom six/dressing room and shower room.


To the left of the landing is bedroom two which forms part of the old footprint of the house. There is a curved feature where the original staircase would have gained access to the original rooms and far reaching views from the window.


Next to bedroom two is the main family bathroom suite which is tiled throughout and has a large shower enclosure, bath and W.C.


Head further across the landing and you will come across bedrooms three, four and five. Bedrooms three and four, which are double rooms have underfloor heating to keep those toes warm and also fully tiled en-suite bathrooms. Bedroom three has an additional window to the side of the house with views to the garden. There is also a large balcony area that can be accessed from bedrooms three and four via double UPVC doors and is a lovely outdoor space to watch the sunsets across the Cardiff City skyline. These rooms are perfect for a growing family or as guest rooms.

Second floor living

Head up to the second floor. This floor accommodates the master bedroom but could also be used as a separate living room with ample space for a three piece suite, snooker table etc. There are three velux windows, two side windows and a stunning large window to the front of house so you can gaze at the spectacular Cardiff and Bristol channel views from all angles.


To the other side of the top floor annexe living space is bedroom six/dressing room. This further large room would suit and serve as a dressing room for the master bedroom "suite" or used as a final large double bedroom. There are far reaching views to both sides.


Between the two second floor bedrooms is a stunning newly fitted shower room with contemporary tiled flooring and beautifully designed features.


The top floor has previously been used as a separate annexe and has its own entrance.


From the initial driveway at the front to the secret gardens there is something for every member of the family. The drive can accommodate six cars with two underneath the carport. The carport has an upstairs room which is large enough for a gym or an office. There are steps leading up to the lawned area which could be further converted to a garage or kept as a play area for the children.


The patio area outside the kitchen has stunning panoramic views. There are steps leading down to the pond area, multiple secret garden spots with paths, stone steps winding around ornate acer trees and shrubs. A large wooded shed with electric supply and two further sheds. A large area of the garden is wild woodland and the homeowner reports nesting tawny owls, rabbits (the Warren), woodpeckers, toads, frogs and newts. Whilst the garden is vast it looks at its best when nature takes over with lawns being cut and paths strimmed. In previous years the gardens have been open to the local Pentyrch Open Gardens.


Pentrych, on the foothills of Garth Mountain and high above the River Taff, is just what you would
expect from a traditional Welsh village. There are two pubs, including the King's Arms, an ancient
longhouse that originally opened in the 17th century, with a cosy bar and many original features.
As well as a couple of shops, you will discover a bowls club, rugby club, the local primary school and so much more.


It is ideally located close to junction 32 of the M4, around 8 miles from the city of Cardiff, a journey
which takes about 20 minutes depending on the route. It is popular with walkers and is also a
destination of choice for mountain bikers. If you enjoy an outdoors lifestyle, this really could be the home for you.
