Property SummaryAn attractive double fronted house offering substantial accommodation with the benefit of bedrooms on all three floors in addition to four reception rooms. A stone path leads to the front entrance door under an entrance porch with pitched roof and glazed sides, set squarely to the front of the house. The entrance hall leads to a spacious sitting room which provides access to two smaller linked reception rooms, one to the front and another to the side, also have access from the hall. To one side elevation is a generous half glazed garden/dining room with door to the well fitted Kitchen. A rear hallway, with a door to the rear garden, gives access to a small utility room, a ground floor cloakroom and a useful ground floor bedroom with en-suite. This bedroom could also be utilised as another reception room. The principal rooms have sash windows to the front elevation, the kitchen and ground floor bedroom are located to the rear of the house with windows overlooking the garden and adjoining open fields.
To the first floor are four well proportioned bedrooms with en-suite bath/shower rooms, two located to the front of the house and two to the rear. A staircase leads from the first floor landing to a second floor where a further en-suite bedroom is located together with further room which would make an ideal second living room, hobby room or office. Both these rooms have some restricted head space but retain the character of the house.
This spacious house has the potential to create a wonderful family home with the benefit of both ground, first and second floor bedrooms or the opportunity to create further reception rooms. Llansabbath House has, in the past, been operated as a successful Bed & Breakfast Guest House, the location offering a rural idyll and yet only a few miles from main A road and railway links.
The house has an enclosed front garden bordered by a substantial stone wall which is set well back and screened from the lane by a large area of grass with a splendid weeping willow tree, other ornamental trees and shrubs. The entrance gate leads to a extensive driveway with ample parking to one side and on to a large gravelled courtyard with further parking leading to a substantial semi detached outbuilding, with pitched roof, providing a large double garage with wooden doors and a studio suite above, ideal as a work from home space or, subject to any planning consent, as ancillary accommodation. There is also a useful storage shed/boiler room adjacent to the garage. The rooms above the garages are approached via a stone staircase to the rear of the building, the outbuilding is attached to a similar building belonging to the commercial property next door, presently used as an equine veterinary centre.
To the front and rear of the house are generously sized mature gardens adjoining open fields to one side and the rear, with views.
The gardens are generous in size and although have received minimal attention in recent years offer the potential for a new owner to restore them to their prime and provide a much enhanced setting for the house, and perhaps, create a vegetable/fruit garden too.
There is the possibility of renting a field adjoining the house from the Llanover and Coldbrook Estate.
The property is located off a country lane within a few minutes drive of the A4042 providing good access to Abergavenny, to the north and Cwmbran and Pontypool to the south and on to Newport. Walks along the banks of the River Usk and from Llanover, along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal are within a short distance. The house is well placed for access to the nearby town of Abergavenny which offers a wide range of amenities, including a main line railway station. Excellent A road links are within a few minutes drive linking to the M4/M5 and M50 motorway networks and the cities of Bristol, Cardiff and Hereford in less than an hour.
