St Hilary, Cowbridge, CF71 7UA

A traditional stone built farmhouse, probably dating from the Victorian era, set in 3.2 acres of garden and pasture on the outskirts of St. Hilary and is thought to be the highest point some 137m above sea level, in the Vale of Glamorgan enjoying simply the most stunning, uninterrupted views across the east south and west over miles and miles of countryside and to the heritage coastline and across the Bristol Channel towards Somerset.

The farmhouse is in need of renovating and in brief terms offers three living rooms, five bedrooms, large utility room, kitchen, bathroom and WC. An interesting range of outbuildings include attached garage, attractive stone built two storey barn, small roofless stone barn and a range of other building in a various state of repair. The approach to the house is impressive with a gated entrance flanked by mature deciduous trees to the front boundary and a shady driveway up to the house flanked by more mature deciduous trees.
