There are a few roads in Wales that have such an exclusive address, in such a prime real estate spot, that rarely have properties for sale, that they become landmark locations.

From Benar Headland near Abersoch to the seafront at Tenby, from Westbourne Road in Penarth to Llandennis Road in Cyncoed, Cardiff – all these streets, and a handful more across Wales, have kudos attached to their address.

The size and style of house, the luxury features, the location in a posh suburb, a semi-rural position or an astounding sea view have all contributed to the nation’s top roads regularly appearing in lists of Wales’ most expensive roads to live on.

The rarity of opportunity to live on these remarkable roads pushes the sales price, as well as the kudos, to the limit, with one house on Benar Headland grabbing the title of Wales’ most expensive house sale in 2021. Find out more about that here.

Druidstone Road in Old St Mellons has always been seen by the residents of Cardiff who know about its existence as a very exclusive, leafy lane to call home.

Located on the eastern side of the capital, the road begins with huge million pound mansions before it morphs to a lane that then meanders from Old St Mellons out into the rolling countryside on the way to Rudry and Machen.

Global Tech News Daily

In 2015 Druidstone Road was named the most expensive road to live on in Wales, and regularly makes an appearance in the annual top ten.

Last year the road had just two sales, the most expensive sale in its history at £1,611,250 and also a coach house, that is part of the conversion of Druidstone Manor House into apartments and smaller homes, for £340,000.

Imagine how big the excitement then from the select band of potential buyers with a big budget, when they find out a house on Millionaires’ Row has just come on the market.

Called Hill House this property comes with a bag full of bonuses including rural views to the front and views to the Severn estuary and Somerset on the horizon from the back.

Where the road becomes a rural lane is where you will find this five-bed property that greets you with white-washed garden walls that sweep you through the tall metal gates to the pretty front garden and attractive front facade of this period mansion.

The first bonus then is the semi-rural position of the property, but before you explore inside, awander around to the rear garden and you’ll find a stunning outdoor space with far reaching views and an inviting swimming pool surrounded by a sunny terrace.

The south-facing garden has a private position with treetops and hedgerows and fields to enjoy but also another bonus – planning permission for another dwelling at the bottom of the land.

The agent selling Hill House has further details about this extra opportunity to add value to the site.

However, the basic plans show a large sitting room and spacious open-plan kitchen, diner and lounge on the ground floor and three double bedrooms, one ensuite, and a bathroom on the first floor.

There’s an elevated patio and a conservatory at the rear of the main house that means pool and rural views are available come rain or shine, indoors or outdoors.

To wander inside from the rear garden, there are two options – through the conservatory or through the double glass doors into the 27 foot / eight metre lounge that occupies the whole depth of the house.

Next to the lounge, at the centre of the house, are two further reception rooms, a dining room and another sitting room that opens into the conservatory.

Help with your hunt for a home here:

Then into a kitchen diner that runs from the front to the back of the house, and also flows into the conservatory.

Finally, next to the kitchen is a handy and sizeable utility room that leads into a study, a quiet space to work with views down the driveway to the rural hedgerows beyond from the window.

Up to the first floor and the master suite is a real gem.

Located over the lounge, it has the bedroom at the front, an ensuite to the side and a dressing room flanked by wardrobes before a set of glass French doors lead out to a spacious balcony at the rear.

From here, the views of the garden, pool and the panoramic countryside vista stretching to the coast of England on the horizon is breathtaking.

There’s another four bedrooms, one with an ensuite, plus a separate family bathroom that completes the current accommodation within this special home.

The house has all the space a family would need, the chance to put your own stamp on the interior design and, of course, that very exclusive address.

Hill House offers a rural setting, a relaxing existence, absorbing views and the availability of a manageable commute into the Cardiff city centre, or even Bristol, but there would have to be a very good reason to want to leave the home at all.

This slice of Druidstone Road is on the market with a guide price of £1.3m with estate agent Jeffrey Ross, call their Llanishen branch on 029 2049 9680 to find out more.
