How much is your home worth?

St Lythans, Vale Of Glamorgan, CF5 6BQ

Deceptively spacious, REFURBISHED, four bedroom, 2000sq/f property set in about 1.4 ACRES. Wonderfully rural and in COWBRIDGE SCHOOL CATCHMENT, yet just a few minutes from Cardiff and easy access to major centres. This property offers you the rare opportunity to buy a property with a very large garden in a delightfully rural location and it is within a short distance into the capital city. There is potential for permitted development for EQUESTRIAN FACILITY with the ability to develop a pony paddock extremely easily. Viewing is thoroughly recommended.

In recent times the property has been the subject of a comprehensive and stylish refurbishment and modernisation by the present owners. This includes a new kitchen, new bathroom, refurbished utility room, rebuilding the study, re-wiring and central heating. There are new doors and windows, with welsh slate cills to most windows, Velux windows and wall ties renewed. There is a log burner, new carpets and a new staircase. The neutral decor throughout results in a very comfortable spacious family house with four double bedrooms.

The accommodation is flexible with two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs and options to do further things with the living space upstairs and en-suite dressing room downstairs. The property stands in about 1.4 acres of mature gardens which is unusually large even for the rural Vale. The garden is ideal for the enthusiastic gardener as well as lots of space for children to play or just having the pleasure of enjoying it.
