An impressive range of stone barns, formerly used as a watermill set near the village of St Brides-super-Ely in the Vale of Glamorgan, is being offered as a prime development opportunity for conversion into an attractive residential dwelling. St y Nyll Barns comprises a mixture of traditional stone and brick buildings with a series of distinctive, semi-circular, high level arched openings and a slate roof. The L-shape structure has full planning permission to provide a large, south-facing residence with five en-suite bedrooms and substantial living space, encompassing a courtyard garden arrangement.

Rhian Howells, Surveyor with Cooke & Arkwright’s Land Agency comments, “St y Nyll is a rare opportunity for someone to create a generous residential property complete with a landscaped courtyard in a picturesque rural location. When you also consider the relatively close proximity of these barns to Cardiff, they are actually in a lovely setting, representing the best of both worlds. They are a unique and very enticing project for a buyer.”

St y Nyll is located in 1.54 acres in an attractive rural settlement which includes a small area of woodland to the north. It is approached by a driveway leading to a large car parking plot. Larger villages of Peterston-super-Ely and St Fagans are nearby with a post office and pubs, together with a primary school. Cardiff is around 3.5 miles away.
