Full description

Standing off its own drive in the centre of its own ground of some 25 acres, and yet only just over 2 miles from the centre of Monmouth, is a country property of huge potential. It enjoys truly outstanding panoramic views over Monmouth and miles of surrounding countryside, from a glorious elevated setting. This property will have wide appeal to a variety of purchasers, including those seeking projects or need land and extensive outbuildings,

There is a large period cottage for refurbishment, extension, or perhaps replacement (subject to consent). It has three reception rooms, a large kitchen, utility, three large bedrooms and a bathroom. Nearby is an old stone barn with obvious potential for residential conversion and an extensive range of more recent agricultural buildings. These outbuildings were sufficient to run a fairly large herd of dairy cattle and pig breeding. Many could be adapted for a variety of uses such as stables, kennels or storage. The land is ideal for pasture.

Monmouth is an old county town at the confluence of the rivers Wye and Monnow. The surroundings are essentially rural and agricultural with glorious countryside. The town has comprehensive facilities to satisfy most requirements, although, the larger cities of both Cardiff and Bristol are easily accessible by the motorway class road links. The town is well known for its private schools, The Haberdashers Schools for Boys and Girls, and the local comprehensive school has a very good reputation.

The property stands towards the centre of its ground, approached over the long drive which terminates in front of the house and also gives access to AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF OUTBUILDINGS. Close to the house, and with the potential to incorporate into any extension or redevelopment is an attractive old STONE BARN (about 34' x 15'3) with an old stone walled fold yard to the front. At present, divided into SEVERAL STABLES and STORAGE with loft over and with a modern roof covering the fold yard. There is obvious potential, subject to consent, to create a separate dwelling or as a holiday cottage/studio or to link to the house as part of remodelling/extension.

The remaining outbuildings are modern and comprise an extensive range of storage and GARAGING and have been sufficient in the past for grazing a fairly substantial stock herd. To the rear of the stone barn are TWO MODERN OPEN FRONTED SINGLE STOREY BARNS, ample further storage and garaging together with two large HAY BARNS each measuring about 30' x 18'. Beyond the barns are several modern block built PIG RUNS, but would now form ideal kennels.

The land rises away from Manson Lane, forming a sunny south-westerly slope with fantastic views over Monmouth and the hills beyond. This land is ideal for pasture for livestock and/or horses and is in several enclosures with various mature trees giving shelter and protection. The higher up the land, the better the view. The land terminates in a bank of woodland which forms the boundary towards the brow of the hill.
