SUMMARY
One of the Usk Valley's finest homes in undoubtedly a truly inspirational setting. Accessed via a magnificent tree-lined approach with circa 17 acres of professionally planned gardens, private lake, swimming pool and pool house, all possessing outstanding panoramic views over the renowned valley.


DESCRIPTION
The six double bedroom main residence is believed to date back to the Victorian era and it is situated in the centre of the manicured grounds to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings and the panoramic views across the valley.

It should be noted the main house has recently been extended and undergone an extensive renovation programme in order to provide the classic features of a period property with the high expectations of a modern family.

Within the grounds there's an additional three bedroom detached coach house which itself offers modern and spacious living accommodation. The Coach House could be utilised in a number of ways to suit the needs of the new owner. It could be for multi generation living, staff quarters, an office and business centre, or it could be converted to make a large multi vehicle garage block.

Close to the house is a very well maintained stable block with six stables and a tack room. With this in mind the top meadow could easily be made into a paddock for several horses or ponies.

Again, for recreation there is a superb swimming pool adjacent to the house with its own pool house which boasts a kitchen area and a shower room. The pool house is used occasionally as additional guest accommodation.

The Location 
Nearby is the historic town of Usk which offers a range of individual shops, restaurants and public houses. Usk is about a mile from the A449 dual carriageway and from there a 13 mile drive takes you to the well regarded market town of Monmouth. The town of Monmouth offers a wide variety of shopping facilities with well-known retailers sitting alongside independent food shops, other retailers and the weekly market. There is a good choice of education options in the area, including the two Haberdasher's Schools (and preparatory school) in Monmouth.
There are numerous dining options within easy driving distance and these include country pubs and more formal restaurants. The area boasts many sporting facilities including tennis clubs, cricket clubs, rugby and football clubs as well as rowing at Monmouth and canoeing on the river Wye.
The nearby A449 also provides a fast route to the M50 and the Midlands, as well as Junction 24 of the M4 which offers direct routes to Cardiff, Bristol and London. Bristol and Cardiff International Airports are less than 40 miles away and Heathrow is just over a two hour drive.

The Grounds 
The house is approached from the road via an electric gate and a very long tree lined driveway which leads to a further gravelled driveway area with a raised stone fountain immediately to the front of the house. This in turn gives access to a block paved parking area. Additional parking can be found to the rear by the coach house which also has a car port.
The grounds are believed to be in the region of 17 acres but prospective buyers are advised to have this professionally confirmed. No expense has been spared in the landscaping of the parkland gardens and they retain a very wide variety of deciduous trees, conifers and shrubs planted over many years.
Beyond the house to the rear there is the private lake and a gazebo with seating areas to the side. The lake is an area of beauty and tranquillity, with far reaching views and a wide range of wildlife to observe. Further beyond the lake is a large meadow and this portion of the grounds could easily be used as a paddock for horses and ponies.

The Main House 
The owners have utilised a white and grey slate external colour scheme in order to emphasise the classic look of the house as you approach the property along the driveway. Internally the colour schemes are very neutral to provide a contemporary feel whilst showing the splendid high ceilings at their best. The flooring throughout is a mixture of oak flooring, carpeting and ceramic tiling.
Entering through the stone porch, you walk into a very imposing reception hall with a centre staircase rising to the first floor.

From the breakfast area an archway leading to the 39ft sun room and from the kitchen there is a further archway leading to a generous family/TV room. The utility room gives access to another cloakroom and a boiler room.
To the first floor the galleried landing leads to all five double bedrooms with luxury en-suite facilities, some with dressing rooms, fitted wardrobes and one with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool.
