Property SummaryLlangwilym is a beautifully presented family home with bright, spacious reception rooms which have a natural flow maximising the living space. A storm porch shelters the welcoming entrance which leads into a large, airy entrance hall. Double doors open to a stunning open-plan kitchen/dining room offering plenty of space for versatile, modern family living. The contemporary kitchen is fitted with a luxurious range of grey base and wall cupboards with integrated appliances, a Rangemaster, and granite worksurfaces and upstands which continue to a breakfast bar, the perfect spot for informal dining or a morning coffee. A matching central island and a wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards not only provide excellent storage but complement this well-designed and immaculately presented kitchen. Adjacent to the dining room is a fabulous family room with a large feature fireplace housing a woodburning stove and French doors which open to the beautiful gardens. To the rear of the room is a playroom/study with adjoining storeroom. From the central hall is a door to an inner hall, leading to a reception room/ground floor bedroom with French doors to a stone terrace and an en suite shower room making it suitable for multi-generational living. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a utility room accessed from the kitchen and a W.C. located off the central hall. An attractive wooden staircase rises to a galleried landing leading to four large double bedrooms and family bathroom with separate corner shower. The principal bedroom has dual aspect windows offering lovely views, a splendid walk-in wardrobe and a luxuriously appointed en suite wet room with double sinks and walk-in shower. Presented to the highest of standards and refurbished over recent years with much attention to detail, this beautiful home combines the benefits of rural living with a luxury contemporary home, within easy access of major road and rail links.
The house is approached from a quiet country lane through an electric gate to a generous tarmac drive leading to a paved patio to the main entrance. The driveway provides parking space for numerous vehicles and access to a detached double garage with electric door and security lighting. The patio continues along the side and wraps around the rear of the house offering many options for outdoor dining or just simply to enjoy the view. The large gardens comprise level, well-maintained lawns with shrub borders and plentiful mature trees including a walnut and a plum. At the bottom of the garden is a wood-clad summerhouse and beyond, a post and rail fence with a wooden gate leading to the banks of the beautiful River Usk where the owners enjoy riparian rights. There is a second gate to the side of the house providing access to a second garage/workshop. This building, subject to any planning consents, could be converted to an annexe/studio or perhaps a holiday let to generate ancillary income. Across the road is a small orchard with apple trees and a vegetable plot.
Llangwilym is situated off a quiet country lane in the pretty hamlet of Llanvihangel Gobion. The desirable, award-winning village of Usk is around 6 miles away offering a super selection of independent shops and a small supermarket amongst other good local amenities. The larger town of Abergavenny is also around 6 miles away and offers a wider range of amenities including shops, primary and secondary schools, banks, doctors, dentists, a library and a general hospital.

Access links to main A roads are within a few miles and a mainline railway station can be found in Abergavenny. The property is situated within easy reach of the commercial centres of south Wales via the Heads of the Valleys Road and the A40/A449 linking to the M4, M5 and M50 motorways for Cardiff, Bristol and the Midlands.

During the unprecedented storms in February 2020, the property did have water ingress to the rear ground floor. The owners were away and the water came through a set of French doors which had not been replaced in recent years. The area of the flood has been refurbished and specialist flood defence doors have been fitted in addition to a flood defence system. Full details to be provided during viewings.
