Communications are excellent. The A40 provides fast access to the M4 and M50. Abergavenny has a rail station with connections to the intercity network at Newport and on to London Paddington. International airports include Cardiff and Bristol.
Lying within the Brecon Beacons National Park, the area is famed for its beauty and recreational opportunities. These include salmon and trout fishing on the nearby rivers Wye and Usk; sailing on Llangorse Lake; the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal flows close by; there are a number of golf courses within easy reach; there are unsurpassed walks and cycle routes throughout the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.
Pwll Court is an elegant mid-19th century house attached to, yet private from, a set of earlier farm buildings. It is the classic Regency three bay design with sash and French windows looking out over mature gardens and rolling fields beyond. Approached down a long drive to a gravel parking area, the house is entered through a double front door beneath a wrought iron and glazed porch into a large hall with decorative tiled floors and tall double doors to both drawing and dining rooms. These are well proportioned with fine period features such as shuttered windows, plate rails, sprung floors and fine fireplaces (one with a fire box, the other a solid fuel stove). Off the drawing room is the conservatory with quarry tiled floors and dominated by a magnificent vine. The service wing has the utility room, kitchen with a range of fitted units and the breakfast and sitting areas.
The adjacent studio, currently used by a successful artist, could be connected to the house. A handsome staircase leads up from the hall to a wide landing with doors off to four good bedrooms, two having wash basins and 2 bathrooms, 1 being en-suite. A secondary staircase leads up to the large attic which has enormous potential for conversion to additional bedrooms. The house has much character with a conservatory to the side housing an ancient vine. Inside, the principal reception rooms have high ceilings with decorative ceiling roses and cornice to complement the Regency exterior. An impressive country house set in gardens of approximately one and a half acres.
