About this property

A unique and rare opportunity to acquire this superb circa 17th century cottage with a stunning paddock/orchard attached. Located in the heart of the well regarded village of Llanmaes, Vale of Glamorgan. The property comprises; entrance porch, sitting room, hallway, kitchen dining room and family bathroom to the ground floor. To the first floor are 2 bedrooms with an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. Outside is a low maintenance courtyard garden to the front, with a private mature garden to the rear (with potential for extension subject to the usual consents), with the stunning orchard/paddock attached, driveway for 6 cars and large garage. Llanmaes is within easy reach of the Heritage Coastline and beach, and also the towns of Llantwit Major and Cowbridge, with their shops, well regarded schools and amenities. Please note that there is only a 5 year term left on the claw back for the Paddock/Orchard, which offers a potential development opportunity subject to the usual consents (we believe that lapsed planning for a bungalow may exist). The cottage itself also has potential for extension utilising the garden space to the rear. Viewings are highly recommended to fully appreciate the presentation, outside space and village location.
