Property SummaryA most enchanting barn conversion, enviably situated at an elevation of about 700ft on the western slopes of the Sugar Loaf and enjoying a south-westerly aspect.
The Barn House is a thoughtfully converted, former agricultural barn with much character and an abundance of appealing, traditional features enjoying extensive views across the Usk Valley to the hills beyond. Converted some 30 years ago, it is evident that much care and attention was given to retain the charm of the original building. The house is entered via a fully glazed entrance door flanked with full height windows leading to an entrance lobby with part-glazed double doors opening into the sitting room. With painted walls, exposed timbers and arrow slit windows, the welcoming sitting room has a woodburning stove and is perfect for cosy nights in. A glazed door with side panels to the outside terrace, affords the most beautiful views across the garden to the countryside and hills beyond. A door leads to the spacious kitchen/dining room, again with much character and country charm. There is ample space for a farmhouse style table and chairs and a glazed external door opens to a terrace and the gardens. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of painted cupboards, complemented by a heavy central beam and painted stone walls. Adjacent is a utility room with space and plumbing for appliances and extra storage. An attractive dog-leg staircase leads to the first floor which has wooden flooring and doors throughout. There are two double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and built-in double wardrobe, a single bedroom and the family bathroom. The galleried landing enjoys views across the garden from the full height sitting room windows.
The property enjoys the benefit of two vehicular entrances, one of which is along a pleasant, tree-lined driveway, and ample parking for a number of vehicles. The garden and grounds, which extend to about 2¼ acres are a special feature of the property and were extensively planted by the present owner some 30 years ago. Large grassland areas are interspersed with shrubberies, small groves of trees and single specimen trees to provide a truly delightful and bucolic setting offering a high degree of privacy. The far-reaching views from the rear terrace are truly magnificent.
A further agricultural stone barn, opposite the house, is presently utilised as storage and workshop space with two rooms at ground floor level and one above.
