Laswern Fach represents a rare opportunity to purchase a large traditional house set in a superb elevated rural location and enjoying magnificent views to the surrounding countryside and mountain scenery.
The original stone house has been extended and now offers spacious five / six bedroom accommodation along with four bathrooms, a superb open plan kitchen / dining room, sitting room etc. There are a wealth of features including stone walls and fireplaces etc and it benefits from oil fired central heating, two dual fuel stoves together with wooden double glazing and a modern fitted kitchen.
A particular feature of the property are the large gardens and terrace from which the panoramic views across and along the Usk Valley to the surrounding mountain scenery can be particularly well enjoyed.
The property is located in an area known as Hillside, which is set above the Brecon Beacons National Park village of Llangattock and is approached via a steep and scenic road. In March 2015 Llangattock was voted by The Sunday Times as one of the "Top 50 Best Places to Live in the Countryside". It has its own church, playing fields, primary school etc and is situated just across the River Usk from the market town of Crickhowell where a more extensive range of amenities are available including a good range of individual shops, restaurants, hotels etc. Crickhowell also boasts a library, health centre and both primary and secondary schools which are well regarded.
Both the River Usk and the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal run through the village of Llangattock and there is access to the surrounding National Park countryside. There are good road links into the local trunk road network and a train station is situated in Abergavenny which is about a fifteen minute drive away and links into the Intercity network via Newport. There is also a train link from Ebbw Vale to Cardiff.
