Property SummaryThis very special property was built about nine years ago in the grounds of a period house which, along with many of the mature trees, still remains. It is a highly characterful and delightful house that sits proudly back from the lane with ample parking in front and immediate access to the double garage. The house is entered beneath a veranda through a substantial front door and into a spacious hall with doors off to the well-proportioned reception rooms. There are an abundance of oak floors doors, architraves and staircase which adds to the character whilst also being beautifully decorated and equipped. Off the hall are a cloaks cupboard and cloakroom, whilst double doors open to the large dining room/drawing room with a log burner and part-glazed doors to the study. An opening leads through to the magnificent open plan garden room, kitchen and breakfast room with parquet floor beneath a large window light and dominated by the folding French windows to the terrace. The kitchen is equipped to an exceptional standard with all the expected workspaces, islands and equipment. Further doors lead through to the sitting room and the utility room with door to outside. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, two with ensuite showers and a bathroom. There is ample wardrobe space, and all finished to a very high standard matching the rest of the house.
The Mount is an exclusive development of five houses just off the Hereford Road on the northern edge of Monmouth. As well as having rural views, the house is very convenient for the centre of Monmouth which has all the expected shops and services of an important county town, including a Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, cinema and theatre. Of particular importance are the local state and private schools, with the Haberdashers’ schools for girls and boys being close by, the girl’s school in particular being a short walk. The A40 run through Monmouth giving fast access south to the M4, Bristol, and Cardiff, and north to the M50 and M5 and on to the West Midlands. Being on the edge of town results in glorious walks through the surrounding countryside, whilst Monmouth has leisure centres and a famous rowing club. The Rolls of Monmouth is a short drive.
The Garden and Coach House
The garden is largely south facing and extremely private. The French windows lead from the kitchen and study to a wide flagstone terrace with outside dining area, and the lawn beyond is flanked by herbaceous beds, mature shrubs and tall hedges. The lawn continues round past a rockery to a well screened boundary fence passing a splendid mature lime, compost bins and a trellised arch through to the gravelled kitchen garden with raised herb and vegetable beds. To the front, and on either side of the parking area are lawns with further herbaceous beds, and the original wisteria-clad Coach House with a double garage with automatic door, and steps up to the gymnasium above.
Mains water, electricity, gas, and drainage. Gas-fired boiler with underfloor heating and radiators. Security systems.
