Full description

A substantial individual detached split level property built by a well known architect for his own occupation and now offered for sale for the first time. Virtually all the accommodation is on one level with just the garage and entrance at lower level which offers the rare opportunity to acquire such a substantial single storey residence. The accommodation is generous with circular stairway from the reception hall leading up to the circular upper hall off which is the huge drawing room, large dining room and kitchen/family room. The bedroom wing is on the same level with four double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Ancillary accommodation includes cloakroom, utility room, cellar off the double garage and almost 500sq' attic/playroom. The property stands in a large mature garden enjoying considerable privacy with a southerly aspect and it is hard to believe as you look out over the swimming pool and grounds that you are in the heart of the village.

Llancarfan has long been regarded as one of the prettiest and most desirable villages in the Vale. Nestling in the wooded valley of the Nant Llancarfan which runs through the centre of the village and is crossed by a bridge and two fords (one vehicle, the other strictly horseback). It's a village with a heart comprising the village school, parish church, The Fox and Hounds, village hall etc. It says something for the community spirit in the village that the proposals (not ratified) by the council to close the village school have met such a spirited response. Llancarfan is in the heart of the rural Vale of Glamorgan with the Heritage Coastline just a few miles to the south. The village is equidistant from the market town of Cowbridge with its excellent facilities including the highly regarded secondary school and the vibrant capital city of Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. Other local major centres are comfortably in commuting distance via the A48 and M4. There is a mainline railway station at Cardiff and Cardiff Wales Airport within easy commuting distance.
