Woodland View, Summerhouse Point, Llantwit Major, Vale of Glamorgan, CF61 1UH

A unique individual character property of over 4,000 sq/ft, standing in approximately 10 acres of garden, pasture, woodland and coastal foreshore enjoying spectacular coastal views in a tucked away location at Summerhouse Point. Dating from 1930 and a fine example of the quality of materials and professional skills of that era, the property was acquired by the present owners just over 20 years ago and in more recent times have undertaken a comprehensive program of conversion and refurbishment to provide exceptionally spacious accommodation balancing the original character of the property with the latest modern fitments and appointments. The accommodation is extremely versatile with all principal rooms on the ground floor and with a wide range of permutations available between bedroom and living space to cater for virtually any family requirements including granny/student flat. Sitting in 10 acres of grounds that could easily be portioned into parcels of pasture, including a 0.2 acre parcel and 2.3 acre parcel. There are approximately 5.3 acres of woodland.

The property enjoys a wonderfully tranquil away location with just one other property in the vicinity and the converted barns at Boverton Mill up the road. Just a short drive away are the facilities at Boverton and Llantwit Major with a more extensive range of facilities in the market town of Cowbridge to the north. Easy access to the main coast road brings major centres within easy commuting distance including the capital city of Cardiff, Swansea, Bridgend, Newport, Llantrisant and Barry.
