Llancarfan, Vale of Glamorgan, CF62 3AD

A good looking substantial individual detached house designed to take full advantage of its delightful riverside location in the heart of what most people regard as one of the prettiest villages in the Vale of Glamorgan. Attractive stone clad cottage style exterior to the house gives no clue to the fact that there are five reception rooms including a splendid new orangery, six bedrooms and four bathrooms. The design is interestingly different particularly in the main living area which is split level with patio doors out to the extensive decked terrace overlooking the river and high galleried mono-pitched ceiling. The accommodation is usefully flexible and there is plenty of scope for the creation of a granny flat, staff flat etc. Llancarfan is an attractive village nestling in the valley of the Nant Llancarfan with the village straddling the river and comprising an attractive mix of mostly detached houses. Local village facilities include The Fox and Hounds, parish church, tennis club and village hall. Llancarfan is situated in the heart of the rural Vale of Glamorgan within easy commuting distance of major centres including the capital city of Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bridgend etc.
