Tenure: Freehold

Nestled in Tregagle near Penallt, this totally unique "chocolate box" cottage has been lovingly restored and extended with a respect rarely seen these days. The cottage enjoys excellent levels of privacy with outstanding views across the Wye Valley and is set in approximately two and a half acres of grounds, including an area of ancient woodland. It is surrounded by mature landscaped gardens, lawned terraces set behind natural stone walls, has a natural pond and a gravelled and brick paved driveway leading to an integral treble garage. A detached stone outbuilding provides space for two further vehicles.

The original cottage is constructed in natural stone with the extended portions mainly stone faced to match. The inset wooden windows some in a gothic style with stone sills are specially made copies of the originals. The doors are either original or specially made copies. The roof is of pitched original and reclaimed red clay tiles. An oil boiler provides domestic hot water and central heating with radiators. All beams, joists and other joinery throughout the house are oak, largely sourced from one ancient local tree.
