Property Summary

Exceptional townhouse within a unique conversion of a Grade II Listed late 19th Century Chapel. A truly stunning combination of skilful restoration with contemporary style. Set in a glorious position on the fringe of the historic market town of Abergavenny. The Rose is one of six converted dwellings within the chapel which beautifully captures the character of the original building. Pen Y Fal Chapel was built in the late 19th century to serve the patients and staff of the nearby hospital. Constructed of bull-nosed red sandstone with a tall slate roof, the chapel is cruciform in plan with a stunning octagonal fleche at the crossing. Architectural elements of the original building are on display wherever possible, flaunting arched stained glass windows, hewn stonework and an incredible wooden vaulted ceiling.

Full Details

The Rose is arguably one of the finest townhouses in the development, sharing the magnificent rose window at the western aspect of the chapel and having its own private balcony. Attractive tessellated original floor tiles lead up to the oak arched door which opens into the entrance hall. To the ground floor is a spacious hallway with a utility room and two double bedrooms with their own ensuites. All bathrooms have Tissino fittings.

First Floor
Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a fantastic open plan living area incorporating a cool, contemporary kitchen featuring handleless matt finish cupboards with solid work surfaces, NEFF integrated appliances and flush fitting ambient LED lighting. This tremendous room could be a blank canvass where your perfect living area can be created. Stepping up on the westerly aspect is an integrated door in the rose window, which leads out onto a private balcony, perfect for sitting out and enjoying the unrivalled far reaching mountain views.

Second Floor
To the second floor, there is an exceptional principal bedroom, combining a dramatic, high wooden vaulted ceiling with a contemporary, luxurious shower room and dressing area with roll- top bath. The spacious bedroom area is complemented with the continuation of the rose window feature with views towards the top of the Sugarloaf mountain.

The Rose has a separate private access with an arched entrance way featuring the original oak doors. To the front and side of the property is a small, private garden area and there are two allocated parking spaces with plenty of options for visitors nearby. There is a very useful outside store room which is externally accessed in the porch area adjacent to the entrance door.
