Quote Reference GP608630 - Approached through private, secure electric gates and via a long, sweeping driveway, this handsome eight-bedroom substantial period dwelling over four levels will excite you. 

The property is listed as Grade II* and dates back to the late 1700s when John Nash built it for Admiral Gell, a close friend of Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, who is believed to have visited in around 1802. The house boasts exceptional interiors and several period features, including high ceilings with decorative coving and plasterwork, panelled doors, and shuttered windows. It was remodelled circa 1850s, which included the addition of an Italianate-style front porch.

This vast home's principal rooms are on the ground and first floors, with former servants' accommodation on the second floor. A lower ground floor provides storage, boiler, and utility rooms, along with the possibility of a self-contained apartment or office suite, or it can be designed with your preference in mind.

Llanwysg House occupies approx. Three acres (STC), including the long, sweeping driveway approached through level lawn gardens, well-stocked mature trees and shrub beds, a private woodland which enjoys annual and perennial flowers and an abundance of bluebells set in amongst the original icehouse structure.

This inspiring property is within walking distance of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal, with its established towpath, perfect for walking or cycling while enjoying the scenery and peaceful surroundings. The property is located one mile from the High Street of Crickhowell's highly regarded market town, within the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is also within 6 miles of the market town of Abergavenny and circa 13 miles to Brecon. It has excellent communication road and rail networks linking the M4 corridor to Cardiff and Bristol.


Crickhowell is a thriving place to live on the River Usk in the southern part of the Black Mountains and the eastern part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. This historic town is a popular tourist destination, and the town centre has a tourist information centre. It is enjoyed by many tourists visiting the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. Visitors can enjoy different outdoor activities such as mountain biking, camping, hillwalking, rock climbing, fly-fishing, hang-gliding, or caravanning, and they can also tour the area by car. If you're in the area in mid-August, you can attend the Green Man Festival, which takes place annually at the nearby Glanusk Park. Crickhowell has two schools, Crickhowell Community Primary School and Crickhowell Comprehensive School.


I have been informed that the property is connected to Mains Electricity, Water, a Septic Tank, and Oil-Fired Central Heating.


Follow through Crickhowell as you head towards Brecon. Turn left at the Petrol Station and continue until you reach the traffic lights. Turn right after you've passed over the Crickhowell Bridge, and Llanwysg is approximately half a mile on your right-hand side.
