Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold or leasehold property with Parkmans

This period property is nestled away in a peaceful position, surrounded by mature private gardens within 4.12 acres of land, ample parking and garages. Extended some twenty-five years ago, this home offers a wonderful space for modern, rural living, with space for home-working or multi-generational living. The house includes a self-contained annexe, and whilst this is suitable for extended family or a holiday let, it could equally be incorporated in to the main living flow. With double glazing throughout, the property also maintains many original features, including the stone-tiled roof and barn, now the lounge, encompassing the original beams, exposed stonework and a stunning open fireplace. Double doors around the house open on to several patios, all quiet areas to sit and enjoy the beautiful location and the utter peace and quiet.

Whilst life at Cefn Pennar typically enjoys only the sounds of the river and birdsong, with buzzards and a resident owl, there is nevertheless easy access to Bristol and Cardiff via the M4, and nearby local train station (Newbridge) links Cardiff and Ebbw Vale. London is approximately two hours from Newport, with its direct rail link to London Paddington. Newport is a mere twenty minutes by car, Cardiff approximately thirty minutes away. Remote working, perhaps punctuated with trips to the office, would be a breeze from Cefn Pennar, with all of the benefits of rural living and the privilege of being surrounded by nature.

The location of Cefn Pennar is also blessed with many local attractions right on the doorstep. For lovers of the outdoors, the Sirhowy Valley Country Park is at the foot of the hill, offering twenty-six miles of walking and cycle tracks set in one thousand acres of woodland and meadows. There are some excellent private schools available in Newport, Chepstow, Cardiff and Monmouth, and many fine pubs, restaurants and leisure facilities all within a short drive.

Hallway And Cloakroom - A spacious Hallway welcomes you in with the main staircase rising beyond and the ground floor cloakroom off this hall; there is access to the kitchen and formal dining room.

Dining Room - With an imposing fireplace, this room offers an impressive formal dining space with space to accommodate a very large dining table and an additional area, perhaps for relaxed seating.

Lounge - Once the original barn, still with beams and exposed brick, this expansive reception space offers the opportunity for hosting guests on a grand scale, or just for curling up with a book in front of the cosy wood burning stove. On two levels, patio doors open on to the West-facing patio for sunset drinks.

Study - Patio doors again open on to an outdoor dining area, flooding the study with light and making it a perfect home office. The fireplace offers a degree of formality and this could equally be set as a home cinema if a study is not required.

Kitchen - This spacious area has windows and patio doors to the south and an open aspect on two further sides. There is a large, informal dining area and a generous utility room off this. If desired, there is scope to incorporate this space in to a truly stunning new, open-plan kitchen/diner, with complete privacy and the possibility of large bi-fold doors opening to both the East and South.

Utility Room -

Annexe Hallway - From the kitchen, a discreet door leads to the annexe hallway; this can be entirely separate from the main house if necessary.

Annexe Store / Office / Bedroom - A useful and flexible additional space which could fulfill a number of different roles.

Annexe Kitchen - This sizeable additional kitchen could be used if the annexe were wished to be employed as a dwelling independent of the main farmhouse. It has potential to be a large utility space if the kitchen were wished to be extended in to the current utility room.

Annexe Lounge/Dining Room - Room for relaxing and dining, perhaps a space for children or teenagers for family life.

Annexe Bedroom - A pretty and spacious, dual-aspect double bedroom

Annexe En-Suite - With separate bath and shower, sink and WC

The drive runs alongside this field, leading to the road for access. There are two main patio areas with beautiful views. Mature trees and shrubs surround the house, with a gravelled drive. Huge garaging is included.
