SITUATION The hamlet of Tredodridge is situated close to Pendoylan Village and is a charming hamlet lying approximately 6 miles east of the historic market town of Cowbridge. This unique enjoys a fine rural setting yet is close to near neighbours and within easy reach of Pendoylan with its church, the popular Red Lion Gastropub and excellent primary school. Cowbridge is renowned for its excellent shops, restaurants and secondary school, whilst Cardiff (9.5 miles) has all the facilities of an important capital City including Culverhouse Cross Retail Park (4.8 miles).

ABOUT THE PROPERTY Believed to date from the 16th Century, Tyn y Cae has been transformed in recent years and retains much period charm yet also offers deceptively spacious, adaptable, modern accommodation - the 'best of both'. To its heart is a galleried hallway, from which stairs lead to the first floor bedrooms while doorways open up into a family lounge with woodburner and to a second sitting room, part of the original property and enjoying a southerly aspect. A dining room, again part of the original home, ha the same outlook and features the original spiral staircase still leading to the first floor. Looking to the rear of the property is a stunning, more modern kitchen-breakfast room extension with windows and bifold doors opening to a wonderfully sheltered, private courtyard garden. This most impressive room features a modern kitchen with fitted appliances to remain and is open plan to a breakfast and living room with plenty of room for a large dining table and for further seating. Beyond the kitchen, and accessible also from the main lounge, is a cinema room, originally an indoor swimming pool and with potential for this to be reinstated if wished. A cast iron spiral staircase leads up to a first floor games room, previously housing a full size snooker table. A mezzanine walkway at first floor level connects the bedroom accommodation to the games room.
The first floor is able to offer up to 6 bedrooms, two of which are en suite. One of these bedrooms is currently used as a study, including as it does a fitted desk unit. The family bathroom includes a freestanding contemporary bath and separate shower cubicle.
There is ample storage provision in the property; so too a ground floor cloakroom and a utility room adjacent to the kitchen.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS Set within a plot of approaching half an acre, Tyn y Cae is approached from the village over a stretch of driveway shared with one other neighbour. A gateway, with wrought iron gates, opens onto a block paved driveway sweeping around a turning circle, from which a there is access into a detached double garage (approx. max 6.1m x 5.2m; power connected and eaves storage).
To the rear of the property is a more sheltered, private garden space, including a stunning paved seating area accessed from and overlooked by the kitchen-breakfast room. Steps lead from here to a decked seating area, again offering a great degree of privacy. Further steps lead to a larger area of lawn running to the rear boundary wall. This lawn can also be reached directly from the first floor games room. To the southern side of the property - the original frontage of the 16th Century cottage - is a flagstone paved terrace enjoying a sunny, southerly aspect.
TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric and water connect to the property. LPG-fired central heating. Cess pit drainage.
