Full description

Beautifully situated in the country lanes around Caerwent, in perfect rural peace yet just a mile off the A48, easily accessible to Chepstow, Newport and the Severn Bridge, a large family house with a glorious unspoilt south aspect over its own land and with outstanding equestrian potential. The land is level and this is good hacking country.

Standing within 12.5 acres of superb level pasture this was an old cottage and barn extended and refurbished some 16 years ago to create a fine family house with good size rooms and potential for a fifth bedroom on the ground floor. There is a hall, fitted cloakroom, 22ft drawing room with fireplace, character beamed sitting room, living room, conservatory, study/bed 5, a 29ft breakfast kitchen and utility. Upstairs are four large double bedrooms (2 en-suite) and family bathroom.

Outside there is a drive to an extensive parking area and a stable block with 4 boxes. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn and extend to some half an acre with decked areas along most of the south side of the house taking full advantage of the fine open aspect. The remaining grounds comprise several excellent pasture paddocks, all level, and ideal for horses. There is more than enough room for more stabling, barns and even the prospect of a mini cross county course!. There are several other equestrian properties in the vicinity and miles of hacking in the surrounding lanes and nearby woodland.

Caerwent is an historic village and parish dating back to Roman times. It is situated roughly half way (about 6 miles) between Chepstow and the M4 at The Coldra (Celtic Manor). The surroundings are essentially rural and agricultural but communications are excellent. There is the M4 at Newport, the Severn Bridge at Chepstow and fast London trains from Bristol Parkway, only some 17 miles.
