Property Description

Full description

Detached period house with a wealth of character features. Benefits include Historic location, walled south facing gardens enjoying beautiful views over the surrounding countryside. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Grosmont is a historic village community situated almost astride the Monmouthshire/Herefordshire border approximately 11 miles equal distance from Abergavenny and Monmouth and about 14 miles from the cathedral city of Hereford and whilst the village has a shop and public house further facilities are available in the neighbouring village of Ewyas Harold, a couple of miles away and the excellent Cross Ash primary school is approximately 4 miles away.  NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Grosmont itself was once one of the largest towns in Wales until it was largely destroyed by Owain Glybndwr's army in 1405; and the castle is within the famous three castles walk, the others being White Castle and Skenfrith Castle, which is regarded as one of the best walks in the Welsh countryside, for the area is not only steeped in ancient history but enjoys spectacular views over the Monmouthshire countryside.

Town Farm is a detached period house occupying a central position within the village and dates back to 1673, according to the inscription over the front door.  It enjoys a wealth of features with many exposed beams, period doors, windows, as well as three spiral staircases, extensive attic space and probably two concealed Inglenook fireplaces, the property also enjoys two kitchens, two bathrooms and an oil heating system, and until recently was split into two residences.  At the rear there is a walled south facing garden which enjoys beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and the village church.

Although it would benefit from some sensitive updating, it offers enormous scope for discerning purchasers seeking a unique character home, but only a personal inspection will reveal all its many attributes.

Some internal works carried out many years ago were unauthorised with regards to the listed building consent. We would suggest any potential purchaser seek advice from Monmouthshire County Council Heritage Department.
