An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a substantial six bedroom family home right on the Cathedral Green. The exceptional location is very probably the City's best and most sought after. This elegant, much loved home sits directly on the Green with no passing traffic, has a superb outlook with the Deanery and Cathedral opposite and is just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of Llandaff's High Street with its shops, coffee houses, pubs, cafes and restaurants.
The house has been sympathetically modernised over the years, by the present owners, retaining many original features including fireeplaces, cornice work, sash windows and panelled interior doors. The large reception rooms, superb kitchen, large bedrooms, South West facing rear garden, large garage and outstanding location make this a truly wonderful family home.

Vendor informs us is freehold.
Solar panels - installed eight years ago on the kitchen roof. Produces some free electricity for the house on many days but also a tax free index linked income currently at c £1000 pa.
Hot Water - domestic hot water is produced without the use of a boiler, regardless of the weather a panel on the roof provides hot water to the tank in the airing cupboard at a temperature of 55degrees.
The central heating system is governed by two thermostats so that up and downstairs can be regulated separately. The thermostats (Nest system) can also be operated and adjusted remotely.
Lane - The lane immediately in front of the garage belongs to the vendors. The neighbours have a 'right of way' but no right to park there. There is a two way garden light switched from the garage and kitchen.
Fires - The fires in the sitting room, first floor front room and the old range in the dining room have all been converted to gas and provide attractive and effective focal points.
Aga - this has an aims system fitted. This permits the Aga to be set to run at different levels at different times of day or on different days and enables it to be set at 'off' when away and to resume in time for return.
Loft - The vendors have renewed the roof and timbers and installed insulation. The attic is boarded and provides huge storage space. There is electric light and a fold-down ladder from the top landing.
Parking - the unrestricted space immediately in front of the house has been used by the vendors for their second car for many years - whilst it may be taken by others if vacant during the day it is usually vacant by the evening.
