Property SummaryFour bedroom house, separate cottage, studio/gym/office complex and circa 12 acres.
Ty Fry is a beautifully refurbished farmhouse set high on Llangattock mountains with spectacular panoramic views across Llangattock, the River Usk, towards Crickhowell and the surrounding areas. This much loved family home has seen much laughter and fun with family parties in the grounds, ample space for everyone to either socialise together or go and find their own space for some peace, tranquillity and reflection.
The traditional farmhouse, with its character and many period features benefits from double glazing and handmade solid oak doors throughout and also offers two Amdega conservatories from which the beautiful views can be enjoyed and providing a perfect space to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening tipple. Enter through the front door into a welcoming entrance hall with access to the principal rooms and with an oak staircase rising to the first floor. The open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room is very much the heart of this family home. The kitchen comprises a range of bespoke, contemporary painted base and wall cupboards surrounding a triple AGA with extractor over, textured splashback and LED lighting, integrated appliances including Bosch induction hob and NEFF electric oven, all complemented by a matching L-shaped island, twin Belfast sink and tiled floor. From the kitchen is a rear hall/boot room with door to a conservatory with beautiful views, ideal for morning coffee and reading a book or newspaper. The principal sitting room has a woodburning stove with engineered oak flooring and a door through to another conservatory which seats 14 comfortably for dinner under a mature grapevine, and offers outstanding panoramic views across open countryside and doors to rear garden.
On the first floor is the family shower room, with underfloor heating, and four good-sized bedrooms all with shuttered windows. The master bedroom has built-in double wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with separate walk-in shower also benefitting from underfloor heating.
The house is a fine example of an 1800s farmhouse with features including exposed stone and timbers. What really differentiates Ty Fry is its location… it has the most spectacular views, exactly what the current owners fell in love with over 25 years ago.
The property is approached up a country lane rising up the hill to a private driveway leading to the side of the house, a large parking/turning area and to the outbuildings/garages. At the top of the driveway is a parking area which is used as the holiday cottage parking area. The gardens lie to the front, rear and side of the property and have been lovingly created to provide a fabulous space to enjoy time with friends and family or find solace reading a book alone. To the front of the house is a raised terrace area with ponds, from which the spectacular views can be enjoyed. The traditional stone bakery is now a BBQ and summerhouse. The gardens and grounds, extending to some 12 acres comprise the more formal gardens immediately surrounding the house to paddocks and meadows. Beyond the outbuildings is Rowan Cottage, ideally located so both the house and cottage maintain their own privacy. The spectacular panoramic views across the Black Mountains can be enjoyed from every aspect of the grounds.
Adjacent to the main farmhouse and approached by one of the many Welsh slate pathways in the two acres of gardens, is a magnificent traditional stone barn. Entered through a double oak studded door, the space inside is currently used as a full gym and office complex on its own mezzanine floor, partitioned with floor to ceiling glass. This complex benefits from modern oil-fired central heating, plumbing, satellite wifi and new electrics throughout. Under the office is a wine cellar and storeroom. Attached to the Barn is a large, modern workshop with an electric roller door and at the other end of the Barn is a three-car garage and a further heated two storey store with full electrics. At the rear are three outbuildings that store equipment to service the grounds, orchard and vegetable garden. This considerable utility space offers those with imagination and energy the opportunity to elevate Ty Fry to the next level and, subject to planning permission, there are few limits for such a large stone barn.
Beyond the outbuildings and set within its own garden is a cosy one-bedroom cottage which was once named by the Sunday Times as ‘one of the most romantic retreats in Wales’. The stone cottage, dating from the 1580s has many attractive features including a woodburning stove, exposed wooden rafters, spiral staircase and well-appointed kitchen with electric AGA. The cottage has been used as a thriving holiday let for a number of years and, more recently, provided a rural escape during lockdown for a family member.
Ty Fry is situated above the village of Llangattock, just across the River Usk from the charming town of Crickhowell, a thriving community with independent shops and a range of amenities including primary and secondary schools, doctor’s surgery, dentists, restaurants and public houses. A wide range of recreational and outdoor activities can be found around the town and in the surrounding Brecon Beacons countryside, with the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal within a short distance. The neighbouring historic town of Abergavenny, approximately 6 miles away, offers wider facilities including a general hospital and a main line 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.
