Property Description

Full description

Period 19th century town house with four bedrooms. Benefits include conservatory, gardens and views.

It is with utmost pleasure that we are able to offer Willowcroft for sale on the open market for the first time in over forty years.  A fine example of a 19th century period town house occupying a particularly private exclusive location within Abergavenny a couple of hundred yards from the centre of this ancient market town and even closer to Cantref Primary School and Our Lady & St. Michaels Roman Catholic Primary School and also King Henry Vlll Comprehensive School; in addition the local tennis and cricket clubs are literally only yards away, whilst delightful walks may be enjoyed along the Pentre and Chain Lane area leading onto the beautiful St. Mary's Vale.

Although Willowcroft would benefit from some updating it still offers a wealth of charm and character with well proportioned rooms including two reception rooms, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, cloakroom, four bedrooms and family bathroom.  Special mention must also be made of its truly spectacular garden and equally stunning views.  The garden contains a wealth of specimen shrubs and trees including a Japanese Plain tree and a 300 year old Oak tree whilst the Cibi Brook also flows through the grounds.

As already mentioned it is over forty years since Willowcroft last appeared on the open market and we would strongly recommend prospective purchasers carry out a personal inspection in order to fully appreciate this truly impressive family home and its surroundings.
