Mill House, Cardiff
This 0.45 acreage is a totally unique character build and significant Floor Area 5210 square feet stone dwelling, beautifully crafted entirely from stone and built with much love and consideration made clear.
In 1998 this dwelling began its journey and conversion by talented architects wanting to realise its unique potential and individuality which was made abundantly clear from just meandering through this architecturally designed building which in itself incorporates a multitude of various shaped and size outbuildings majority being stone buildings from Pig sty to Cow shed and the old stone cottage to the main stone barn.
This unique dwelling is an amalgamation of a 500 year old stone cottage and several stables and a large stone cow barn and significant stone main barn and various sheds and storage rooms and amazingly even incorporated the 6 gorgeous little pig sty’s along with several large chicken coups - all these various shaped unique structures were gathered together and connected with beautiful stone walls 4 feet deep in places to make a stunning unique dwelling. There is no place like this I have had the pleasure of evaluating.
There are three large courtyards and various gardens a beautiful Mill Race where 2 large Mill Stones were found buried whilst the dwelling was under construction and conversion hence the name naturally became Mill House. These original Mill stones are now located in the rockery where they were found as a feature rockery outside the dining and kitchen wing.
There are two electric beautiful gated entrances off old Nantgarw Road - the transportation links are immediately available to A470 and M4 and this unique location within a restricted green belt prevents further development so your countryside quiet calm location is assured.
Located immediately next to Caerphilly garden centre where you’ll benefit from wonderful selection of plants and tea rooms to a garage at the bottom of the garden to collect milk or bread or as the owner admitted if you run out or fuel!
Caerphilly town is a wonderful thriving community with its shopping centres and well known castle all just minutes drive away along with various quality pubs and restaurants.
Several large grocery stores are readily available within a minute drive or so and thus you benefit from all the facilities you could possibly require whilst still being based within glorious countryside.
The property itself lends itself to a large family or potentially even a guest house having 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms or perfect perhaps for a multi generational family having the separate cottage annexed for independence of elderly family who wish also to enjoy attachment and inclusion at their Choice into the main home with all areas of such unique charm and character!
