  • Close proximity to Dinas Powys

Glebe Farm is situated within the heart of rural Vale of Glamorgan in a peaceful setting, yet offering close proximity to both Dinas Powys and Cardiff beyond. The detached former farmhouse dates back to the 12th Century and is one of the few remaining tithe barns from the Norman period left in South Wales. It was first converted to a residential dwelling in the 19th century, where it was used as a farmhouse and agricultural buildings, and was fully converted in the 1980s. Situated within the grounds is also Glebe Cottage, the former milking parlour which was converted in 2004 by the current owners. The two dwellings within the title offer an abundance of accommodation and offer the potential for the inter-generational family living, a work/business/office space separate from the main home, or, as is currently the case, as a lucrative holiday let/Airbnb.

The vendors have lived in the property for 18 years (always a great recommendation), and have modernised the property themselves; most recently creating a light inner hall through to vaulted ceiling family room as well as refitting the cloakroom and utility. The accommodation briefly comprises:

Glebe Farm: entrance porch, entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, living room, sitting room/study, inner hall, family room, utility and WC to the ground floor with four/five bedrooms to the first floor, master suite with en suite bathroom and dressing room, which could easily double up as bedroom five. There is the potential to have a separate annex wing to the farmhouse as there is a secondary staircase from sitting room/study up to bedroom five.

Glebe Cottage: Entrance porch, cloakroom, open planing living/dining kitchen area, further opening to a family/sitting area. There are a further two bedrooms and a bathroom all set across one floor.

The grounds span to around an acre and offer private gardens to both the farmhouse and cottage, as well as further parcel adjacent.
