Property Summary

Built of stone beneath a slate roof with stunning southern views out over the Usk Valley to Llangattock Mountain, the house sits proudly in its grounds. It is entered from the quiet back street through a panelled front door with half-light above to a large hall with oak floor boards and staircase with panel doors through to the main reception rooms. These have fine period features including interesting fire places, coving, picture rails, dado rails, shuttered sash windows and a continuation of the oak floors. The drawing room in particular is dominated by a large bay window with French windows leading out to the terrace and gardens. The sitting room lies in the older wing and has exposed chamfered beams and an imposing inglenook with a fully glazed door to the garden on one side. The kitchen has been re-modelled in recent years and is now the vibrant heart of the house and opens out into a splendid conservatory. The cellars have flagstone floors and are currently used for extensive wine storage.

The main staircase leads up to a first floor split landing with panel doors off to the main bedrooms and bath/shower rooms. The main bedroom, with en-suite dressing room and shower room, has stunning views over the gardens and out to the south. Three further bedrooms and family bathroom are accessed off the main oak floored landing, whilst the back stairs lead down to the kitchen and up to two smaller bedrooms and a shower room. Stairs continue up to the attics which have enormous potential.

Full Details

Gardens and Grounds
The glorious south facing gardens are an oasis of beauty and one simply is unable to believe it is in the middle of a town. Leading from the drawing room is a large stone terrace dotted with various flowering shrubs and white Jasmine and pear trees on the main elevations. A recent stone wall flanks the lawns beyond which they are bisected by mature yew hedges and richly planted herbaceous beds which run down to a cherry tree surrounded by beech hedges. A double garage is closer to the tarmac parking area leading out to the lane.

Location
Dan y Castell is situated on the southern edge of Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons National Park overlooking the Usk Valley in the lee of The Black Mountains. Crickhowell is a charming and popular small town with a good range of local shops, restaurants and schools. The market towns of Monmouth, Abergavenny, Brecon and Hereford are all a short drive away.
Crickhowell has become increasingly popular due to improvements in communications and in particular with the A40 providing fast access to the M5, M4 and the national motorway network. Abergavenny has a railway station with fast links to Newport and from there the intercity network to London Paddington.
This area of the country is renowned for both its beauty and recreational opportunities. The River Usk flows below Crickhowell and the Monmouthshire and Breconshire canal is close by.
There are a number of good golf courses throughout the area. Brecon has an excellent theatre, and there are exceptional walks and rides through The Black Mountains and the nearby Brecon Beacons.
