The Limes. Cowbridge, CF71 7BJ

An impressive individual detached property built and designed by the present owner in 2008, on the site of a small riverside cottage in the heart of the town. Designed to take full advantage of this delightful and most convenient location, the design emphasis is on natural light creating a feeling of spaciousness. In brief terms, the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, large drawing room with windows on three sides, large beautifully fitted "hub of the house" kitchen with open plan to family room enjoying double aspect, utility/cloak room. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms. Interestingly, a full staircase leads up to the second floor with two sizeable attic rooms off a landing both with central heating, electric, light and power. Clearly there is potential to create additional accommodation subject to any necessary consents being obtained. To the rear of the house, enjoying a westerly orientation, is a large decked terrace cantilevered out over the river and is a lovely spot to sit and watch the world float by. The Cotswold gravel front garden provides parking space for two cars with a further two spaces on the side of the property.
