Property SummaryGround Floor
A surprisingly spacious cottage with well-proportioned rooms and much character throughout. The front door (situated to the rear) opens into a welcoming entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and access to sitting room, dining room/snug and downstairs cloakroom. Beyond the dining room is the fitted kitchen with door to outside leading to the garden and parking area. The cottage has a wealth of features including exposed beams, painted stone walls and woodburning stoves set into brick and stone surrounds. The views from the sitting room, across open fields to the Skirrid Mountain beyond, are spectacular.
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to three spacious first floor bedrooms and a large family bathroom with bath, separate shower and airing cupboard. The bedrooms located at the front of the cottage enjoy particularly outstanding views across the valley.
The property is approached from a country lane along a single track. Continue past the entrance to two other properties tucked away at the top of the lane to the private driveway and parking area of the cottage. Either side of the driveway are two stone outbuildings, which present a superb opportunity for refurbishment or conversion, subject to any necessary planning consents. One of the buildings is split into two rooms and the other is a cattle shippon complete with cattle stalls and windows overlooking the adjoining fields. Beyond the outbuildings is an ample parking/turning area leading to the cottage which is surrounded by substantial gently sloping grounds dotted with mature trees and shrubs. The cottage enjoys superb panoramic views across the beautiful Usk Valley towards Skirrid Mountain and beyond.
Situated in a fabulous elevated location in the Brecon Beacons National Park above the village of Llanellen, this pretty cottage has direct access to bridleways and footpaths and is a short distance from the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Llanellen has a café/delicatessen, village hall and church and the property is well placed for access to the thriving town of Abergavenny which offers a wide range of amenities, including a main line railway station. The A4042 offers excellent links to the M4/M5 and M50 motorway networks and the cities of Bristol, Cardiff and Hereford are within an hours’ drive.
Private water supply and drainage (septic tank). Mains electricity. Oil-fired central heating.
