Full description

Located in most private and sheltered gardens extending to almost two acres in the lee of the grounds of Usk Castle yet within just a few hundred yards of the centre of the historic former market town of Usk, Plas Newydd ranks unquestionably among the best of the very few properties of this calibre found in the area. The Grade 11 Listed house was completed in about 1836 and has many interesting architectural features both inside and out. The fine veranda extending from the front of the house around the north side and across the rear is a noteworthy feature. Internal attractions include handsome fireplaces to the principal reception rooms which benefit from delightful aspects overlooking the gardens.
The house not only lends itself to occupation by a large family but has also proven well suited to occupation by two generations sharing. Alternatively there would be the capacity to allocate a portion for consulting rooms or other professional use if desired.
Standing just off Porthycarne Street and entirely hidden from the road, Plas Newydd is within a few minutes walking distance of all the facilities of the town including shops and primary school together with paths facilitating simple access to the riverside and country walks. Usk is geographically well situated in the centre of the county with the road networks placing Cwmbran and the cities of Newport, Cardiff and Bristol within commuting distance. Intercity train services to Paddington run from Newport or Bristol Parkway with dual carriageway/motorway roads to the Midlands, London and West Country.
