The Paddock is situated in a select hamlet within the spectacular parkland of Hensol, bordering the Golf Course and the grounds of the Vale Resort. This lifestyle resort offers an abundance of leisure opportunities with the world-class Vale Resort housing a health and racquet club, spa and two championship golf courses.

The property is conveniently located just 1 mile south of Junction 34 of the M4 motorway, which provides fast access east to Cardiff and Bristol and west to Bridgend and Swansea. Cardiff is 10 miles east and provides all the expected facilities of a Capital City.

More locally, comprehensive facilities can be found in the village of Pontyclun, 2 miles north west and the town of Talbot Green 2 1/2 miles north. Talbot Green retail park is home to a large number of high street retailers including Marks & Spencer, a food superstore, restaurants and cafes. The Miskin Arms, a charming “restaurant with a cosy bar” can be found in the adjacent village of Miskin. The historic market town of Cowbridge is just 7 miles south and offers an array of independent shops, bars and restaurants.

Description

The Paddock marries the traditional exterior of a character stone barn with a modern living arrangement to provide a contemporary layout which perfectly meets the needs of modern family living. Having been extensively renovated to a very high specification, The Paddock successfully combines high quality fixtures and finishes, whilst retaining the charm and character of the original buildings which boast rooms of generous proportions and natural exposed beam ceilings.

This unique and distinctive property dates back to the early 1900’s. Originally converted circa 2004, and more recently fully renovated and completed in 2011, The Paddock consists of two barns; both of which having been sympathetically converted to create an idyllic setting for a family home. The main barn consists of four bedrooms with the former stables consisting of living accommodation and two further bedrooms.

Approached through a gated entrance with two large stone pillars, access to The Paddock is along a private driveway, used by just the four houses in the hamlet. The charm and character of the property is evident as soon as you walk into the entrance hall; with quarry tiled floor and a solid oak staircase leading to the first floor. The two principal reception rooms include log burners, each supplied and fitted by the highly renowned Topstack, solid oak floors and doors leading out onto the sun terrace. The family room has aluminium bi-fold doors with toughened, argon gas-filled glass for greater energy efficiency (fitted Nov 2011 and guaranteed for 10 years) and extensively fitted floor to ceiling bespoke furniture. The sitting room has oak framed French doors leading out onto the courtyard, a high ceiling and also retains the original oak saddle rack; a charming feature of the room. The extensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room has granite work surfaces and an electric Range Master cooker. There is a central island unit offering a great space in which to dine. An inner hall leads to a utility room and a WC complete the ground floor accommodation.

An attractive oak staircase leads up from the reception hall to the first floor accommodation. A gallery landing with oak flooring and high ceilings with exposed beams create a light and airy feel as you approach the first floor. There are four bedrooms, of which, two are equipped with stylish and contemporary en-suite shower rooms. A recently installed stunning family bathroom with a rain shower above the bath and under-floor heating services the two remaining bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts relaxing views over the courtyard gardens and stretch across to the golf course and adjacent countryside. French doors open to a Juliet balcony.

Planning permission has been granted to provide a first floor extension to incorporate a large luxury bathroom.

Detached from the main house is the former stable block, converted to comprise a 26ft cinema and games room with an adjoining two bedroom self-contained guest accommodation. The living accommodation comprises two separate bedrooms and a stylish white, contemporary shower room with an electric power shower and under-floor heating.

The cinema room has extensive equipment to include a surround sound by Bose equipped with 5 speakers, an electric drop down 108 inch screen, Yamaha amplifier, a 3D surround amp blue ray dvd player and a 3D HD Panasonic projector. A contemporary log burner creates for a cosy feature.

Low maintenance landscaped grounds and gardens include lawned areas, beautifully stocked flower borders, an attractive, ornamental pond, and bespoke sun terraces, one with an undercover gazebo with timber pillars and natural slate roof. Across the private drive from the main residence is a paddock measuring to approximately 2/3 of an acre.
