Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This property offers a unique building opportunity to acquire a former quarry site with planning consent to build a spectacular four-bedroom family house on the outskirts of Pontypridd, Wales. The proposed designs, by award winning architects Hyde + Hyde, extend to over 3046 sqft, with accommodation arranged over two floors with two parking spaces beneath. The secluded site offers privacy on three sides, with sweeping countryside views of farmland and grazing animals to the front.

Hyde + Hyde’s proposed design features full height glazing that allows for open views of beautiful rolling hills, silver birch trees and bluebell woods. The proposed building is dramatically cantilevered, creating parking space beneath with a beautiful suspended steel staircase leading up into the house.

The most impressive space inside is the double height living / dining area on the ground floor. This is open plan with the kitchen, which has a larger reception space behind. Also on this floor is a guest room / study with en suite bathroom. On the first floor are three further bedrooms, one a large master with en suite bathroom.
Outside space is provided by a west facing balcony adjoining the dining room that is bathed in evening light. There is also a sheltered, decked terrace incorporated into the ground floor.

Hyde + Hyde are an award winning architectural practice, with offices both locally in Wales and internationally in Amsterdam. “Our aim is quite simple” say Director Kay Hyde, “it is to create exceptionally crafted, low energy buildings that exceed our client’s expectations”. In this project they have taken inspiration from the natural landscape, utilising local materials to create plans for a low energy, sustainable building which blends into its habitat.

The secluded quarry site can be found off Gelliwion Road, which is located on the western fringe of Pontypridd and is easily accessible from the town-centre by foot or vehicle. Alongside a bustling high street and a large indoor market, the town boasts several junior and secondary schools, as well as a beautiful park, tennis courts and an outdoor Lido. A highly recommended gastro pub in Pontypridd is the Bunch of Grapes, where guests can expect award-winning food and locally brewed beer. All of these amenities are within extended walking range of the site, and accessible by car within 5 minutes.

The town itself is 20 minutes from the capital city of Cardiff via direct train. With Cardiff being so easily accessible from London, the location makes an ideal family home in the country. Just north of Pontypridd, the wild expanse of the Brecon Beacons National Park are accessible by a 25 minute car journey.
