A spectacular and welcoming family home with gorgeous views. Prisk Farm is nestled very comfortably in the stunning countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan, offering character living with a modern touch.
SITUATION Prisk Farmhouse is situated in a small hamlet with breath-taking views over stunning countryside. The nearby historic market town of Cowbridge has a fine range of quality shops and services as well as a health centre, leisure centre, various sporting clubs, a public library and Old Hall Community Centre. There is a local primary school at Pendoylan, and Cowbridge has a well-regarded secondary school. Closer by is the small village of Aberthin with the famous Hare & Hounds Inn and nearby, the recently opened White Lion Public House. Cardiff, which has the usual amenities of an important capital city, lies some thirteen miles to the east with mainline rail connections to London in around two hours. The M4 motorway is a short drive to the north, whilst the international airport at Rhoose is highly accessible. There are several golf courses within the area; and the heritage coast with its cliff top walks and mixture of sandy and stone beaches is to the south.
PRISK FARM Prisk Farm is at its heart a 16th Century farmhouse that has over the last 16 years been completely refurbished to the highest possible standard. Great care was taken to enhance the period features such as original beams, stone staircase, bread ovens and the thick stone walls that appear at a property of this period. Overall there is an air of a French country farmhouse with 'cooking apple green' painted Georgian windows contrasting against the stonework.The house is dominated by the impressive hall with spectacular staircase, French limestone fireplace and stunning wall mural by Welsh artist Gill Nontha. The limestone floors lead through to the drawing room with a wood burning stove and original beams, whilst the family room has patio doors opening onto the walled garden. This side of the house, with its cloakroom and boot room, has been designed to be a self-contained annex if required. The Chalon designed hand painted kitchen includes a four-oven AGA, a kitchen island and is a treat to be in. This opens through to the Orangery that is both an additional dining room and sitting area. Cloak rooms and utility rooms are off. Upstairs there is an oak-floored landing which leads to a stunning master bedroom suite with dressing rooms, an elegant wet room in limestone, and other secrets. There are three further bedrooms (one en-suite) and a third bathroom. A fully decorated and carpeted loft room is above.
