Property Summary

Tucked away in the heart of a thriving Monmouthshire village is this attractive detached house, much improved by the present owners, who have created a beautiful contemporary home.

Full Details

Built in the 1970's, this beautifully presented contemporary home is tucked away down a country lane on the edge of the historic village of Grosmont. The house has the unusual name of 'Sally Rucks' which we understand is from the combination of 'Sally Port' (of Grosmont castle) and Rucks - a concealed entry where troops could Sally out to attack/defend from the enemy and where people came in and out of the fortification, the ancient lane down from the gate has the same name. In keeping with the period, the house offers space and light and has been tastefully modernised with much attention to detail. Located behind the historic village church and within walking distance of the local village pub, post office and castle, this house offers privacy but with the convenience of local amenities and the opportunity to become part of a thriving village community.

Grosmont is located equidistance between Abergavenny, Monmouth and Hereford making it an ideal location for access to national road and rail links. This historic village, which boasts both modern and period houses, is surrounded by stunning countryside which can be enjoyed from the gardens, designed to relax and entertain outdoors. The house offers 3 reception rooms, all with their unique features including a wood burning stove, glazed doors to the gardens and wooden floors. The contemporary kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively fitted with modern white cupboards with a marble worksurface over. The stylish curved doors add an interesting design to the kitchen as does the dresser with glass display cupboard. Integral appliances include a Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher and microwave oven. Off the entrance hall is a cloakroom/W.C and to the side of the house, accessed via an interconnecting door, is a utility room and store room.

First Floor
Stairs rise from the entrance hall to the spacious first floor landing with glass balustrade. The bedrooms are light and spacious, two with modern en-suites. The main bathroom is tastefully fitted with a stylish oval freestanding bath and separate walk in shower. The views from the first floor, across open fields to countryside beyond and towards the local church are just beautiful.

Enter through a wooden 5 bar gate into a gravelled parking and turning area. The gardens lie to the rear and one side of the house with planted beds bursting with colour when in full bloom. The garden has an extensive decked area with pergola over, ample space for outdoor furniture and entertaining. To the rear of the house is a path leading to a workshop with stairs to an office/studio over.

Grosmont is a thriving village with local shop/post office and public house. Located in the centre of the village are the remains of the Norman castle. The property is located approximately 12 miles from Abergavenny, 14 miles from the city of Hereford and 12 miles from Monmouth, all of which have a wide range of amenities including shops, banks, schools, library, supermarkets, doctors, dentists, cafes and restaurants.
