Croft Mawr is a wonderful example of a substantial family home, set within over an acre of land just outside Cardiff.
With electric gates and a sweeping driveway, the feeling of luxury starts from the moment you enter. The house sits centrally on the plot surrounded by extensive gardens with various seating options and beautiful far reaching views.
Entering into the fantastic reception hall with its Tunisian limestone floor, the scale of the home becomes apparent. A traditional staircase leads to an impressive galleried landing with a large window to the front. A cloakroom can be found in the inner hall with doors leading to a formal dining room with large sash windows.
The study to the front elevation with its box bay and picture windows allow light to stream into a fabulous working space. A further large reception room, currently used as a gym, can be found off the hall with French doors to the rear and side which allow access onto the raised sun terrace.
The expansive kitchen has been beautifully fitted by the current owners including granite work tops, Crema Marfil tiled floor and a wood burning stove. There is a substantial bespoke central island, whilst the breakfast area is spacious providing access to the rear terrace and gardens beyond.
Off the kitchen is a large inner hall with plenty of natural light and doors to an additional stone walled, decked patio with views over the gardens. At the end of this delightful hall is a spacious utility and separate drying room.
From the inner hall is access to a wing and a hall with a door to an additional front porch and further staircase to the first floor. A modern cloakroom is a great advantage. The superb Family room is once again light and bright with 4 sash windows and is complete with Amtico floor.
Off this room is a store room/studio and a third staircase to a substantial space over the 3 garages. Currently used an extensive home office, this could equally be used as a games/recreation room, children's playroom or additional bedroom.
On the first floor there are six very generous bedrooms. The master bedroom has elevated views and a wide range of fitted furniture in the dressing room. Countryside and sea views can be taken in from the magnificent full length windows. The en suite is spacious and luxurious. The second bedroom features a dressing room and en suite, whilst two bedrooms share jack and jill' en suite facilities. There are a further two bedrooms that share a generous family bathroom.
Outside, the beautifully maintained gardens offer privacy with views over adjoining farm land. There is a generous lawn with a variety of attractive plants, trees and shrub borders. The delightful raised sun terrace sweeps around two elevations of the property with unparalleled views over the Bristol Channel and the islands of Flatholm and Steepholm.
One of the true premier homes in South Wales, with fantastic views, generous accommodation and a magnificent garden.James Thomas
