A spacious, stone built five bedroom barn conversion set in an acre of land with a pond. The property is set in a peaceful location on the edge of the South Glamorgan village of Banwen, within the Brecon Beacon National Park


This is our five bedroom stone barn conversion set in approximately one acre of land within the Brecon Beacon National Park. It is situated on a local authority maintained no through lane which services seven properties and therefore provides a peaceful setting without the feeling of isolation. All of this is within a 30 min commute to Swansea or 50 min to Cardiff.

Accommodation

The barn has five double bedrooms, the master having a lovely open aspect of views across the lawns, woodland and countryside. Our heritage green bathroom is a Jack / Jill giving ensuite access from the master or private access from two guest bedrooms.

There is a further family shower-room to the first floor. All of the bedrooms have full ceiling height as, sometime in its history, the barn had additional brickwork in order to lift the roof height. This has also provided considerable attic storage space.

Downstairs there is a centrally located country kitchen with integrated hob / oven plus a Belfast sink etc. At the other end there is a solid fuel Rayburn which allows for the strategic placing of easy chairs to take full advantage of the views via the French doors which open onto the patio. We have lost many hours sitting here watching the birds or enjoying the cosiness on a winters day.

Off the kitchen is the first of two lounges, this we refer to as our summer lounge. It has a beamed ceiling and windows overlooking the front drive and rear landscaped gardens.

Past the stairs and the Rayburn, in the kitchen, is the rear lobby with doors to:
• Utility / WC / boot room
• Rear patio and garden
• The second lounge, which we refer to as the sitting room, has a cosy feel for winter evenings and a second stairway to two of the bedrooms.

Having a toilet / utility with direct access from the outside space was a conscious decision to allow us to answer any calls of nature without concerns for muddy boots or clothing when enjoying the gardens and surrounding countryside.

Outside

Externally there are a number of sheds / workshops some with power and light enough to keep any hobbyist content and occupied. There is also a secure dog run.

Although we no longer keep ducks we have retained the pond which is now a large wildlife pond, housing frogs, newts and other creepy crawlies. The grounds themselves are double height fenced to keep our dog secure and are bordered by a stream and mature trees.

Services

We have mains electricity, a private bore-hole supply, septic-tank sewage and an oil / solid fuel central heating / hot water system


Our only reason for selling this idyllic property which provides a lifestyle we love is that five bedrooms and two lounges for two people and a dog is excessive.
