    About this property

    • St Andrews House is a magnificent Victorian family residence, offering extensive and beautifully appointed accommodation, set in grounds of approximately 7 acres. Constructed in 1892 for Sir Thomas Morel, the property has been extensively refurbished in recent years preserving original detail and adding modern day luxury, resulting in impressive formal entertaining space allied with more comfortable and intimate family living.

      The property is approached via a long tree lined driveway sweeping in front of the house and leading to the outbuildings and garaging. The house itself is entered via a large panelled entrance door beneath a pillared entrance porch, opening into the entrance vestibule.

      The ground floor consists of 4 spacious reception rooms with the drawing room and snooker room providing elegant living space with wall panelling and recessed ornate fireplaces. This contrasts with the high quality modern kitchen & family room which is of generous proportions, appointed along 3 sides with granite work surfaces, a range of integrated appliances and Aga oven. A smaller back kitchen leads off with space for additional appliances, whilst a central island unit separates the kitchen from the family room with ample space for a large breakfasting table and chairs, and a welcoming seating area overlooking the side garden. These rooms are situated off the impressive and grand reception hall, with a solid oak staircase to the first floor and a very large galleried landing area above.

      The gym/study offers much versatility, with a utility room, cloakroom and boot room completing the ground floor.

      The first floor is arranged around the striking galleried landing and comprises of 5 double bedrooms, 2 with en suite facilities, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The principal bedroom suite is outstanding with elevated views of the surrounding area, a luxurious en suite bathroom and separate walk in dressing area. A balcony spanning the front elevation is shared with the second bedroom which is also of excellent proportions and benefits from the second en suite bathroom. The remaining 3 bedrooms share the large family bathroom and shower room, with an additional laundry room also located off the landing.

      Alongside the laundry room, a back staircase leads to the second floor with two further bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom and a study.

      Outside

      St Andrews House stands in an enviable elevated position in around 7 acres of grounds, including imaginatively designed parkland style gardens. There are several level areas of lawn and various terraces with extensive woodland providing a large degree of privacy. Native and botanical plants, and ornamental trees contrast within this established plot.

      The 5 acres of woodland have been nurtured over time, providing fantastic amenity space for walks, adventures for children and seeing the surrounding nature.

      A useful range of outbuildings are located to the Northern boundary and include garaging and loose boxes with access to idyllic rides over the immediate countryside.

    I can't think of a better Victorian home in South Wales, with substantial grounds and manicured woodland, this is a real gem.
