Originally and once part of Ballas Farm, until bought and renovated across the turn of the millennium by the current owners to create this fantastic small holding that they have to date. The property spans over 4000 sq/ft across two levels with 6 bedrooms and fantastic open plan living, dining and sitting areas. The adaptable accommodation sits comfortably within it's own grounds and retains a variety of original features of the barn and stables including inglenook fireplaces, exposed stonework and fan windows to landing.
The location is truly fantastic, set in privacy but not isolation. It is within a semi-rural setting with easy links to the A48 and M4 corridor at junction 37, as well as public transport by train at Bridgend and Pyle, as well as bus links. Porthcawl is but a short drive away and offers a variety of local amenity including three golf clubs and two excellent beaches. Interestingly, the lane towards Stoney Barn now know as Heol Y Sheet once formed "The Portway" until the late 15th century. Rumour has it that the remains of a Motte and Bailey castle built in the 12th century can be seen within the mounds of earth between Cefn Cribwr and Stormy Down
The property steeped in character offers excellent accommodation throughout set across two levels, these include; 45 ft Drawing Room, 35ft Kitchen/Living/Dining Room, a separate Sitting Room, 5 Bathrooms and 6 double Bedrooms. Further to this there is the added benefit of an adaptable annexe, currently in use as a leisure complex with Sauna, however could easily be a teenage/granny flat with separate access from the main property.
The property is accessed by it's own electric private gates into a cotswold stone laid forecourt with accommodation to all aspects, as well as gated access to both paddocks. The property in all sits in c. 3.2 acres of flat pasture and woodland. There is a separate vegetable plot, as well as flat, secluded and private laid rear garden mainly laid to lawn, of which includes a fantastic sun terrace.
There is a true sense here of space and the opportunity to purchase a modernised barn large enough for family living, full of character within close proximity to all local amenity yet offering land and semi rural country living.
