A very rare opportunity to acquire a significant former mansion house standing in approximately 3 acres, previously an ancient monument, now a Grade II listed building, purchased by the present owner in 2011 and renovated and in parts re-built, to now offer comfortable living in a truly exceptional building. Part of the building remains an ancient ruin but subject to planning offers considerable potential to re-instate.

Existing accommodation includes DRAWING ROOM (20'3" x 17'10"), 12 ft high beamed ceilings, hand carved fireplace surround, blue pennant flagstone floors and 3 sets of stone mullioned leaded windows to a private courtyard garden. KITCHEN/DINING ROOM (18'7" x 20'2") quarter turn oak staircase to first floor, flagstone floor and 12ft high beamed ceiling, windows to front, side and rear elevations, recessed opening containing electric AGA, fitted base cupboards with timber worktop and inset white porcelain sink, doors to parking area and into the ruined central hallway. CLOAKROOM (4'8" x 3'10") white pedestal basin and low level WC, flagstone floor and boiler room. LANDING with oak flooring, high beamed ceiling, and doors to BEDROOM 1 (22'3" x 18') spectacular room with part pitched beamed ceiling, oak floor, hand carved fireplace and stone mullioned leaded windows to courtyard and The old town beyond. BEDROOM 2 (12' x 12'10" max) solid oak floorboards and stone mullioned windows and oak framed windows to front and side elevations. SHOWER ROOM (9'2" x 7'6") timber floorboards and modern white suite including low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and fully tiled shower cubicle with glazed entry door and mains shower attachment, high beamed ceiling.

A spiral staircase rises from the first floor landing to the second floor. BEDROOM 3 (20'3" x 19')  a spectacular room with pitched and beamed ceiling,   and oak framed and stone mullioned windows enjoying views of The Old Town, The old castle ruin and The Bristol Channel, oak floor and door to DRESSING ROOM/EN SUITE (6'7" x 5'9") oak floor, a versatile annexed room with plumbing available.  A beamed platform above bedroom 3 allows potential to form an additional mezzanine bedroom space.

Stone pillar gated entrance leads to a sweeping gravel driveway with extensive parking framed by a grassed area with gated entrance to a REAR FIELD which is included in the sale and over which garden use has been confirmed.  Attached to the property are various original stone structures forming part of the original building which offers potential for additional accommodation, subject to planning.  These include a rear 2 STOREY WING (approx. 22' x 16'3") CENTRAL HALL (50' x 18'9") originally 3 storeys high, and a WEST WING (24'4" x 16'4") some re-instatement work has been carried out to these structures, but it is our understanding that there is no obligation on the future owner to maintain.  All parts of the building look out onto a lawned COURTYARD GARDEN enjoying complete privacy and enclosed by high stone walls

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage

From our Cowbridge Offices head in a westerly direction up Westgate turning left onto the Llantwit Major Road. Turn left at the Nash Manor crossroads in the direction of Llantwit Major.  On approaching Llantwit Major and approaching a large roundabout go straight across, under the railway bridge and turn right.  The road bends to the right, this leads into West Street where The Old Castle lies on your right hand side.
