In one of Cardiff's most coveted conservation villages stands this magnificent Grade II-listed Victorian Gothic residence. Steeped in history, it is understood to date from 1857 and is documented as a minor masterpiece in Gothic construction. This remarkable five-bedroom detached house was originally designed by well-regarded architect John Pritchard who also undertook the restoration of Llandaff Cathedral in the mid-1800s. Only a short stroll to Llandaff's main High Street with its celebrated restaurant scene, independent shops and cafes along with easy access to the Taff Trail. Both Llandaff Cathedral School and Howells School are nearby, making the location ideal for families.

The home has been sensitively and meticulously renovated under the guidance of interior designer Andrew Burch, which permeates a charming sense of grandeur and modest elegance throughout. The introductions of an exceptional bespoke kitchen and timeless Fired Earth bathrooms blend seamlessly with the property's epoch. A neutral colour palette highlights the period sash windows, tiled flooring and notable features that are discovered throughout the 3,200 sqft home.

Approached from the main foyer, the hall has doors leading to the three reception rooms and an office, along with stairs to the first floor and basement access. Interconnecting the drawing room and sitting room is an inner lobby that opens out to a superb orangery. Continuing from the hall is a shower room, access to the courtyard, pantry and doorway to the kitchen breakfast room and utility. On the first floor are four bedrooms, a shower room and a bathroom. On the second floor is the fifth bedroom, a spacious room with French doors to an en suite bathroom. Outside the gardens have been landscaped with the vision of Cheryl Cummings (RHS award-winning designer) to create a wonderful green outside space encased with stone walls. Furthermore, there is a large gated driveway and English Heritage-built double detached garage.
