Property SummaryLimekiln Farm is that rare phenomenon of a recently built country house in a delightful rural setting. Built about three years ago by the current owners, Limekiln is a mellow stone clad house combining traditional charm with modern expectations. Approached down a long drive, the house sits proudly in the midst of its grounds and is entered through an impressive solid front door to a porch and into a large open plan kitchen and dining hall. The quality is obvious with flagstone floors, a high spec kitchen and a multitude of modern lighting and sound systems. The sitting room off has a large inset log burner in the stone fireplace. On the opposite side is the utility room, workshop and garage as well as a ground floor bedroom and well-fitted bathroom.
Glass-sided stairs lead up to a galleried landing with the three large bedrooms, one having an en-suite shower, and a large family bathroom. Everything appears to be of the highest standard and the views out are awesome.
Limekiln is surrounded by its own grounds but the principal gardens are south facing with three sets of French windows opening from the house. The gardens have been designed for easy maintenance and have a Mediterranean feel. A large area of gravel and pathways are dotted with planters and herbaceous beds and flanked by low stone walls. A raised flagstone terrace with stone beds have maturing shrubs and plants. At the far end is a stone barbecue and chimney. Lawns surround the rest of the house, flank the drive, and run to farm and woodland.
This is an important feature of Limekiln and it is laid out with equestrian facilities at the forefront. Close to the house is the stable yard with a pair of wooden-framed blocks including six stables, tackroom and storage. Beyond is the post and railed menage and three paddocks. The current owners rent an additional 24 acres, this could probably continue if required.
As well as the owned and rented land, the property has the benefit of neighbouring common land over which it has grazing and quarrying rights.
Limekiln is situated just outside Penallt, a highly sought-after village due to its rural outlook yet close proximity to Monmouth. Monmouth has good shops including Marks & Spencer’s and Waitrose, as well as the famous Haberdashers' schools for Boys and Girls. The A40/A449 provides fast access to the national motorway network and the commercial centres of South Wales, Bristol and Birmingham. London is usually just over 2 hours’ drive and there are intercity rail services from Newport and Bristol Parkway. Recreational opportunities abound and include a tennis club in Penallt; golf courses at The Hendre (Rolls of Monmouth) Chepstow (St Pierre) and Newport (Celtic Manor); the rivers Wye and Monnow flow nearby; and there are glorious walks and rides through the surrounding countryside.
