Property SummaryWhite Hall is a characterful Grade II Listed house offering typical Georgian elegance and charming features throughout. Believed to have been built circa 1780 and extended circa 1839, this delightful property presents a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious, comfortable family home in a village location on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. The house has been run by previous owners as a successful guesthouse.
Front and rear porches lead to a large central reception hall with feature fireplace, dado rail, staircase to the first floor and doors to the principal ground floor rooms. There are two generous reception rooms; one with dual aspect windows, original fireplace with ornate surround and the other with a splendid wooden floor, stone inglenook fire-place with woodburning stove and classic arched doorway opening to the forecourt. The 24’ kitchen/dining room has an attractive parquet floor and windows either end create a pleasant, calm space. Double built-in cupboards offer ample storage space and a range of painted kitchen units with wooden worktops are complemented by a Belfast sink, matching island with built-in range cooker with 5-burner gas hob and decorative brick inglenook fire-place.
Doors lead to the utility room offering further storage and a good-sized conservatory with double doors to the pretty gardens, also accessed from the sitting room. In addition, there is a separate WC and two cellars, one accessed from under the stairs and one accessed externally, ideal for garden storage.
To the first floor are three large double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and the master bedroom with en suite four-piece bathroom, as well as a fifth, smaller bedroom. On the second floor is a fabulous attic suite featuring heavy oak A-frames, several rooflights and a large en-suite shower room. There is ample storage including double built-in under-eaves cupboards.
The property is set back from the A40 on a junction with a minor road to Gilwern. Access to the front porch is through ornate metal railings and over a gravelled courtyard. A forecourt to the rear provides generous turning and parking space for numerous cars and leads through to the generous pretty garden. Mature trees and well-established borders enclose the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with a raised terrace area offering plenty of space for al fresco dining. At the end of the garden is an additional seating area offering westerly views across the Usk Valley. The garden has a herb garden and interesting Laburnum tree. The vendors refer to the garden as ‘the garden which keeps on giving’ with its abundance of colour and seasonal plants. There are two wooden sheds, one with power, and a wooden summerhouse. The garden is shielded from the road by a stone wall.
White Hall is situated in the heart of the small Powys village of Glangwryney on the A40 main road between Abergavenny and Crickhowell. Glangrwyney has a popular public house and restaurant and is just a couple of miles away from the thriving town of Crickhowell, regularly appearing in the 'Top 10 Places to Live in Wales' listings. The town offers a good range of amenities including a library, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, restaurants, public houses and well-regarded primary and secondary schools. The town lies on the banks of the River Usk and offers numerous recreational and outdoor activities such as walking, hiking and cycling - an ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park with walks through beautiful open countryside and along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Abergavenny, circa 6 miles away, offers further facilities including supermarkets, a general hospital and a mainline railway station.
Road links within the area are considered excellent with the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road approximately four miles away providing access to the A470 for Cardiff, A4042/A449 for Newport and the M50 and M4 motorways.
Mains electricity, water, gas and drainage. Gas-fired central heating system – a new boiler was installed in February 2023. Woodburning stoves in the sitting room, hall and dining room.
