A Grade II listed former rectory in St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan, now in need of renovation and refurbishment, presents an opportunity for a range of re-uses including potential development to provide new build accommodation within the village. Set in generous grounds accessed by a private driveway, the large detached property was also known as Balfour House when it was converted for use as a school in the 1960s.

Located in a quiet, pleasant setting adjacent to the village Church, the building is finished in local lais limestone with a Welsh slate roof and provides extensive accommodation comprising good sized, well-proportioned rooms with sash windows, some of which are boarded up. The site extends to 0.8 acres and is accessed via a private driveway off Rectory Road. Any redevelopment or re-use would be subject to planning consent and a report from Geraint John Planning, Cardiff is available from Cooke & Arkwright upon request.

St Athan is a small community with a Church and primary school, two public houses, a golf course and a village shop. It is also home to MOD St Athan. The village provides easy access to the beautiful beaches of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast, and public footpaths extending along the Wales Coast Path. Nearby are the market towns of Cowbridge and Llantwit Major, and the larger town of Barry. There are good communications by road and rail (from Llantwit Major) to Penarth, Cardiff and Bridgend.
