SITUATION The Conservation Village of St. Hilary is one of the most picturesque Villages in the Vale of Glamorgan with thatched cottages and Historic Church in the centre together with the thatched Bush Inn public house / restaurant. There are a number of larger, period houses as well as attractive, character cottages and modern detached houses.
ABOUT THE PROPERTY Understood to date from 16th Century, Village Farm is located to the very heart of this most respected and sought after village. With period detailing and fine craftsmanship throughout, this Grade II listed properyt is able to offer true character - from the exposed timber beams to handcrafted doors and surrounds; to the mullioned windows and the flagstone floors - and all the modern conveniences families expect.
The extensive living and bedroom accommodation offers a great degree of flexibility, including as it does a dining room with contemporary woodburner set within an Inglenook fireplace with original accent-lit bread ovens. Two further living rooms both feature woodburners. A stunning kitchen looks out onto the south facing garden and includes a good range of granite-topped units with matching central island and a two-oven, electric Aga with adjacent warming oven. A door links into a cloakroom and side entrance while, beyond the kitchen, there is a conservatory positioned to catch the sun all day. Neatly located to the rear of the property is a very useable study and a laundry room.
Being a period home, there are separate stone spiral staircases - from the dining room and the lounge - leading to the first and second floor bedrooms and bathroom; all the bedrooms are sizeable double rooms.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS Fronting the property is a flagstone path, leading from the kitchen past the property and through a gated entrance on to the roadway fronting the garage. This broad space is an ideal suntrap, enjoying a southerly aspect. The original entrance doorway to Village Farm opens to and from this.
Though located to the very centre of the St Hilary, Village Farm has a wonderfully sheltered, south facing garden screened from neighbours by walling and by mature, well-tended conifers. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, but includes flagstone paved seating areas. To the western edge of the garden is a 1940's era 'Pill Box', used as a wood store.
A detached garage (approx. max 5.4m x 4.8m) is accessed via two sets of side-hinged doors. A pull-down ladder leads to a loft storage area. An inner door opens to a rear lobby / storage area, off which a door leads into a climate controlled 'EuroCave' wine cellar.
TENURE AND SERVICES Freehold. Mains electric and water connect to the property. Cess pit drainage. Oil fired Central Heating.
