"rarely Available". 2 Bed Detached Bungalow....it "is Like A New Home"...

Recommended Posts

"The property during the early part of 2013 enjoyed a 'no expense spared' insurance flood claim"......what a good selling point. :o

Perhaps after all the recent rain/floods we seem to be getting now, this type of home will not be so "RARELY AVAILABLE"?

"RARELY AVAILABLE. A detached bungalow standing on a generous plot in the centre of Boverton and less than one mile from Llantwit Major railway station. The property during the early part of 2013 enjoyed a 'no expense spared' insurance flood claim and therefore the interior of the property is like a new home. Briefly the accommodation comprises entrance porch and hall, kitchen/diner, sitting room, two bedrooms, shower room and utility room. Outside there is a generous 175' driveway, outbuildings and a garage. The property has gas central heating and UPVC windows and doors. The seller has informed us that they are currently insured with Liverpool Victoria. The property unlikely to be qualify for a mortgage due to flooding and therefore the seller is seeking a cash buyer or investor."

Now there's a place name that triggers memories. I spent two years at a boarding school just outside Llantwit Major - I'm sure the local posters will know of the place.

Having followed the OP's link and glanced around Rightmove, I'm astonished at the property prices round there. Maybe things have changed, but I'm fairly certain that back in the 80s, Llantwit wasn't a major employment centre or generally awash with money. In the 80s, it felt like the a 1950s rural backwater. I'm fairly certain there wasn't a rail station in my time - so maybe it's now a "popular commuter village" (in EA-speak) with links to Cardiff.

(Now going to immerse myself in a nostalgia-fest with Google Streetview and see which pubs still exist)

Aberthaw, St Athan, Barry, Rhoose.

No, no jobs at all back then...

Interesting.

Yes you are right, since they opened the rail line to Cardiff in 2005, it is now a "commuter village", with resultant high house prices. :rolleyes:

Have you noticed the prices in nearby Cowbridge now? They are off the scale. (for South Wales prices anyway).

eg there are several "solds" at over £1 million there

eg 2 bed semi sold recently, asking £400k.

I think Cowbridge has always been a prestigious area, was it an expensive area compared to other areas in Wales, back when you were in Llantwit?

Plus I have heard many will pay a premium on their house price/rent to get their kids into the newly refurbed High School there, because of its good reputation.

Went to the recent opened Waitrose there the other day, and the car park was full of new Range Rovers, Mercedes etc.

Lord knows. I was 16 and only interested in two things; the pub at Marcross (?) and the Swedish girl in my maths class.

For some reason, relative house prices didn't feature even fleetingly in my consciousness.
