A beautifully appointed character home and coach house surrounded by gardens and farmland. Immaculately presented, this spacious family accommodation is within 14.4 miles of Cardiff City Centre, 9.4 miles from the M4 (J33), 4.8 miles from Cowbridge and less than 1 mile of Llantwit Major.
Greystone House is a handsome, mid Victorian property with a period feel yet providing a sizeable family home with all modern conveniences. The two largest reception rooms both have shuttered windows looking out over the front garden onto pasture land. Both feature working open fires: one has a simple, carved sandstone Minster-style surround, the other has a marble fireplace surround. A smaller reception room is used as a study and a further, larger dining room looks out over the entrance driveway and is immediately next to the kitchen. The kitchen, to the rear of the property, features granite work surfaces and a very good run of storage units with appliances, where fitted to remain, and includes an induction bob, twin ovens, microwave, larger fridge, large freezer and dishwasher. It is open plan to a more recent addition to the property, a breakfast-living room with ample room for a family sized dining table and sofas. Doors from here link into the utility room; and also to a rear entrance lobby from which there is access to the rear courtyard area. A further set of double doors open to the sheltered, central west facing terrace and garden.
To the first floor are six double bedrooms, two shower rooms and a bathroom with separate WC. The two principle bedrooms both enjoy superb southerly views over the pasture in front of Greystone House and, to the far distance, the Bristol Channel. The master bedroom includes an adjoining dressing room fitted with a comprehensive range of wardrobes and drawers; and has an adjacent, modern shower room.
Beneath the property and accessible from the hallway is a basement suite of three high-ceilinged rooms with flagstone floors, including a wine cellar with slated shelving, ideal for wine or additional storage.
Situation: Llanmaes is a small well regarded village including an ancient parish Church at one end of the village and a public house at the other. The town of Llantwit Major is just a few minutes drive away and offers excellent local facilities including a train station and well regarded schooling, a wide range of shops and leisure and sporting facilities. The old town is particularly attractive with its narrow winding streets and the town beach on the Heritage Coastline is just a mile or so to the South. The good local road network brings major centres within easy commuting distance including the Capital City of Cardiff, Swansea Bridgend, Llantrisant, Barry, etc.
