How much is your home worth?

St Nicholas, Vale Of Glamorgan, CF5 6SG

A traditional stone built detached farm house which has been the subject of comprehensive refurbishment and modernisation by the present owner to provide high quality well appointed accommodation including three living rooms, three bedrooms (could easily be four), and three bathrooms. The property enjoys the advantage of about an acre of ground with stabling.

The property stands in the well regarded village of St Nicholas just a short walk from the Church in Wales Junior School from where the children go to Cowbridge Comprehensive. There are further good local facilities in the adjoining village of Bonvilston including village shop/post office, The Red Lion, and Village Hall. Cottrell Park Golf Club with its two 18 hole courses is literally within walking distance and Dyffryn Gardens, owned by the National Trust, lies just to the south. The location couldn't be a more convenient one with the Capital City of Cardiff just a few miles down the road and then with easy access via the major road network including the A48 and M4 to other major centres including Newport, Swansea, Bridgend, Llantrisant, etc. St Nicholas is surrounded by Vale of Glamorgan countryside with the heritage coastline just a few miles to the south.
