Set on the east bank of the Rhymney River is the village of Maesycwmmer. Celebrating its historical heritage, you can’t help but notice the sculpture Wheel of Drams by Andy Hazel, which commemorates the coal mining history of the area. Another significant landmark is the viaduct, which dates back to 1853. 28 Gellideg Heights is one of those special properties; beautifully presented, it provides you and your family the opportunity to move with ease.
Heading down this quiet street of detached houses you get a sense of the views that await you due to the property’s elevated position. Its striking exterior certainly catches your eye, and you can tell that this is a home that has been loved and cared for. The owner tells me the house was in the family before she and her partner made it their home.
Warm and welcoming
One thing you notice as you step inside is the size. The hallway alone is so light and spacious; it gives such a warm welcome. Eager to see more, we head into the lounge/diner at the front of the property. “This is a great room, and even though it’s large it still feels cosy in the winter,” the owner enthuses. The light flooding in through the windows is hard to ignore, you can see how this room would be perfect for Christmas, and yes, I even picked out a space for the tree.
Your own stamp
The stunning presentation continues throughout this wonderful home. Neutral, with the occasional coloured accent, the décor allows you to imagine how you could make it your own. Entering the rear of the house, you have a modern kitchen and downstairs bathroom; both rooms are blessed with ample storage.
What the home owner says
We’ve extended the conservatory and also done work to the garden. I spend hours in the conservatory, the views are incredible from here across the valley. It’s a great space, no matter what the weather. I can understand why this is one of the owner’s favourite spaces.
The split-level garden is as immaculate as the interior, with clear zones identified by textured finishes. A decked area provides a space to eat, and there’s also fantastic storage located on another decked area. Wonderfully private, you can see why the owner spends most of her summer in this garden. Whether entertaining with friends, relaxing with a good book or just watching the sun come down on a warm summer’s eve, it’s an idyllic setting that can only be experienced from taking a moment to simply enjoy it.
Fancy some golf
Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel and Spa can be seen from the upper part of the garden. Only a short distance away, you could be spending your weekends on the green or indulging in a spa treatment or two. “Hengoed train station is about a 20-minute walk away. From there you can head towards Rhymney or Penarth via Cardiff.”
You’ll be pleased to know there are a number of local shops within a 10-minute walk, including a general store, perfect for picking up those last-minute essentials. As you’re only five miles north of Caerphilly, everything this beautiful and historic town has to offer is in easy reach.
Plenty of room
Upstairs the property expands, as the current owner has built over the car port. The master bedroom is a fantastic size; you will also find two other double bedrooms and a good-sized single, as well as the family bathroom. One thing you notice as you investigate each bedroom is the storage that each room provides. Often, storage takes over a room, but here, due to the great proportions, each bedroom still feels spacious.
Love is home
There is no doubt that the owner loves this home, you can see it in every well thought out space. Personal circumstances mean she would like to move closer to family, which is why the time has come for her to say goodbye.
We hope we have given you a sense of why you should make this property your home, but nothing can compare to experiencing this incredible home for yourself.
