Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire a property with land in a beautiful rural location with some truly spectacular views towards the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley, situated right on the Monmouthshire/Gloucestershire border.

The farmhouse, was probably a shepherd's cottage and comprises a cream rendered cottage which has been extended to provide flexible accommodation with the main reception rooms on the first floor taking full advantage of the outstanding views across the valley.

The property has been utilized by the vendors as a smallholding over the years, with them keeping sheep, cattle, horses, alpacas, goats, ducks and chickens in the past. The property has also been utilized as a cattery and rescue centre in the past, and whilst the vendors still have a licence for twenty boarding cats, the property is being sold purely as a property with land and not a business as this ceased some time ago.

The property is eminently suitable for those wishing to keep a wide range of livestock and/or private equestrian use and the views from the property have to be seen to be fully appreciated. Staunton is a small rural hamlet with a church. More extensive facilities are offered in the nearby town of Monmouth including schools, both junior and senior which enjoy excellent reputations including the Haberdashers schools, as well as theatres, restaurants and a wide range of shops.

The beautiful Wye Valley then runs down to Chepstow, also with a good range of amenities and facilities, giving access to the Severn Bridge. From Monmouth there is also access onto the dual carriageway which connections to the M4, M50 and M5.
