The Old Dairy was renovated by the current owners in 2016, formally a stone built farm building for Brook Farm - still a working farm. The property has been sympathetically modernised to retain the original features within the stonework and architecture of the building, but the renovation has created a modern fusion of sleek lines and an abundance of glass to let in natural light throughout the property. The pointed stonework, vaulted ceilings, A framed exposed beams and slit windows offer the original character of this charming conversion.
This being said, there are a variety of modern features that you would expect in such a high specification property, these include gas underfloor central heating system throughout the ground floor, surround system bluetooth radio/speaker system in the kitchen/breakfast room, Iroko double glazed windows and doors to include a bi - fold door to the kitchen/breakfast room and limestone tiled flooring throughout the ground floor. Both kitchens and bathrooms are fitted to an excellent standard with a modern en-suite wet room in limestone and china slate.
The property is situated in the quaint village of Llanmaes. Llanmaes village is a vibrant community with active church and social life, which includes a warm and friendly village pub, The Blacksmith Arms. Llanmaes historic village is just one mile from the heritage coast and an eight minute drive from the market town of Cowbridge. It is a two minutes drive from the ancient town of Llantwit Major which boasts a full selection of shops, pubs, restaurants etc. together with a leisure centre with a swimming pool. Llantwit Major Comprehensive School has recently achieved some of Wales' best examination results.
