Property Description

A substantial detached former mill, situated in the heart of Llanblethian., This iconic, historic, family home retaining bags of character is situated in the heart of a vibrant yet rural village, but within a short country walk of Cowbridge High Street and all it's amenity. The property offers further development potential, subject to the necessary consents and is wonderfully presented throughout. It is thought that there has been a watermill on this site since the 1200's but the existing mill is probably Victorian or possibly early 1800's. Its working life as a mill finished in 1947 and has been a house ever since, you can see throughout the masses of character on show.

It is a good size family house with four living rooms including a particularly fine drawing room and dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room provides the hub of the house. The river room has been added in more recent years and is a delightful spot to look out over the river and gardens as is the river terrace. On the first floor there are four good size bedrooms and two bathrooms and the full staircase leads up to the second floor which used to be two separate rooms and there is now one very large bedroom/sitting room with en-suite shower room and is ideal for granny/teenager style accommodation or could be converted back to two separate bedrooms if required. The property enjoys the benefit of gas fired central heating. The gardens are an absolute delight and are linked to the main house via small bridge over the river Thaw and enjoys view up the valley of the river Thaw towards Cowbridge.
