Set on a glorious Welsh mountainside with stunning views, this exceptionally well presented, versatile lodge style property is located within a small town in the Taff Bargoed Valley. Nestling within a woodland setting on a plot of approximately 2 acres, this fabulous family home, formerly the office building for the local coal mines has been redeveloped over the years to now offer substantial and extensive living accommodation with the benefit of an attached annexe which is completely self-contained. The property can be approached via two driveways. The north driveway is lined with Victorian lampposts and, about half way along benefits from water, electricity and sewerage supply, therefore, ideal to erect a lodge, summer house/office, etc. The north driveway is also part of a bridleway and the surrounding area has good hacking. The south driveway is lined with large cherry blossom trees, which are a magnificent feature in the spring flowering season. The driveways culminate in a parking area to the front and side of the house. The gardens are spectacular and have been well maintained by the current owners and landscaped to take full advantage of the setting. The secluded garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees. There is also a private hot tub area with stunning views, and terrace. There is also a large outbuilding, currently used as an aviary (with electricity and water) which has separate areas possibly to keep a range of animals in. With magnificent views over Parc Taf Bargoed, a glorious country park with valley landscapes, alive with wildlife and a haven for nature, and also ideal for activities such as fishing, canoing/kayaking, and horse riding, the property is also ideal for the cyclist/walker with the Taff Trail on the doorstep. Internally the property offers substantial and flexible living accommodation which is entered via a large hand made oak porch into an impressive entrance hall, well fitted kitchen with breakfast island, open through to the living room with a magnificent double sided open fireplace with log burner and patio doors leading to the garden. A separate dining room enjoys dual aspect views. There is also a utility room with access through to the garden and a ground floor shower room. The games room has a full size snooker table in and there is also a cinema room, study and 19ft bedroom with door to the front aspect and en-suite including his and hers' basins and roll top bath. The self-contained annexe can be accessed externally and internally and comprises a 25ft lounge/kitchen, separate wc and bedroom with bath. There are a further five bedrooms and spacious family bathroom to the first floor. The 23ft master bedroom has an en-suite with Jacuzzi corner bath and separate jet shower. Five of the bedrooms enjoy mountain views.
