SITUATION Lisvane is a highly respected community about 5 miles north of Cardiff City centre. It retains its own identity and a village feel, with a village shop, Primary School, two pubs and a Parish Church. It has long been regarded as one of Cardiff's foremost residential areas.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY In an exceptional, commanding location, 'Springmeadow' occupies an enviable position with panoramic views over Cardiff and onto the Bristol Channel and the North Somerset coastline. With 3 storey accommodation of about 9500 square feet, it has, to the heart of this family home, a most impressive central atrium with floating gallery over and fine, 180-degree views from over the surrounding area towards Cardiff and the Bristol Channel. Radiating from this are the principal rooms to the property: to one side a dining room; a modern Swedish kitchen with adjacent breakfast room and conservatory which, like the dining room opens to a sun deck enjoy a westerly aspect. To the other side of the atrium are two further living rooms - a library and a family sitting room - and a master bedroom suite positioned to enjoy the views and with its own fully-fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom.
To the first floor is a galleried landing, dramatically lit from above. All four further bedrooms, three of which are en suite and all enjoy the open views over the locale.
At lower ground floor level is a heated 9m x 5m swimming pool and associated shower room and sauna, an office and gym area. Accessible from here are ancillary rooms, including a laundry room, wine cellar and a boiler room concealing the workings for the heating system for the house and the pool.
Lower ground floor flat
Accessible from either the pool area or from an external door to the eastern side of the property, this two-bedroom apartment has an open-plan living-dining-kitchen space; two double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and shower.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS In an elevated position to the very northern edge of Cardiff, Springmeadow occupies a commanding location from which there are quite superb far reaching views over southern Glamorgan - from the Severn Bridge to the east and to St Hilary, near Cowbridge to the west.
