Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Falls is thought originally to have been a mill believed to date back to the mid-1700s. Stone built with sympathetic brick extensions with a rendered exterior inset with a combination of hardwood and UPVC double glazing under pitched Welsh slate tiled roofs. Worcester Oil fired boiler providing hot water and central heating to radiators throughout. Features include hardwood stained glass front doors, Canadian maple flooring, shelving and window sills, inglenook stone fireplaces with oak lintels above, raked ceilings with exposed beams and a useful cellar.
Until 1993 it had, for decades, been a guest house - newspaper adverts show it as offering lodgings in the early 1900s. In the 1850s through to the 1920s it was occupied by the local doctors and the parking area is the former stable area for the property. Over time it has been sympathetically extended, refurbished and modernised. Currently a large family home, it can easily be configured to suit a variety of uses thanks to multiple separate entrance points and kitchen and bathroom facilities.
There are excellent road connections providing easy access to Chepstow and Monmouth. Nearby motorways and railway stations offer convenient access to Bristol, Cardiff, London and the Midlands.
