Property SummarySingleton House is without doubt one of Monmouth’s finest houses combining an excellent central position with far-reaching rural views out over the River Monnow and hills beyond. Dating back to 1829 and listed Grade II, it sits in an historic position alongside the old ditch which defended Monmouth. It is approached beneath a climbing pink Rose trellis arch to a panelled front door with a glass fanlight above and on in to a flagstone hall. Internally the original features remain such as decorative plasterwork and coving, fine fireplaces, pine and elm floors and shuttered sash windows. The current owners have over the last twelve years thoroughly refurbished Singleton House to a very high standard and making it extremely comfortable whilst not losing any of the period charm. The sitting and drawing rooms have been opened into one, though the folding doors could be reinstated, whilst the kitchen and dining room are also open plan, with both bays having tall French windows out to the terrace. The flagstone floor continues through to the kitchen with its range of fitted units, polished granite worksurfaces and an inset electric aga. In the dining area oak and walnut panelled cupboards flank the chimney breast. The original side passage and garage have been cleverly converted into garden/utility/cloaks room with double doors to the front and bi-folding doors to the back.
The delightful gardens are to the rear and run down to the river beneath. A terrace and lawns are flanked by stone and brick walls with a variety of shrubs including a prolific fig. A picket fence and gate leads to the middle garden with garden sheds, lawns, stone paths and down to a Wisteria archway to the large lower lawn. Though Singleton House owns to the river (over which it has riparian rights), the riverfront lawn is deliberately left open so the neighbours can all enjoy the open space, though the riverside terrace is solely for the house.
Singleton House is situated a short walk up Monk Street and close to Monmouth’s historic town centre. The town has a splendid array of shops, cafes, restaurants and inns, and includes a Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. The cinema, theatre and leisure centres are close at hand. The Haberdashers’ School for Girls is within 5 minutes’ walk, and it is extremely convenient for the Boys School and Monmouth Comprehensive. Communications are good with the A40 running through Monmouth with fast links to the M4, Bristol, Cardiff, and the M5 to the West Midlands. Monmouth is set amidst beautiful countryside where there are numerous walks and trails. The Rivers Wye and Monnow converge on the edge of town with fishing, rowing and other water activities. The Rolls of Monmouth golf course is a few miles out.
Mains electricity, gas, water, and drainage. Gas-fired central heating.
