Property description

Catchmays Court is believed to date back to the eighteenth century with later Victorian additions. It has retained many period features.

Step inside the main entrance hall where you get your first glimpse of Victorian splendour. It has a high ceiling, a feature found throughout much of the property. Doors lead off to the spacious ground floor receptions rooms.

The drawing room has a magnificent stone fireplace, with a grand piano at one end and enormous bay windows at the other with floor to ceiling windows allowing light to flood the room. Superb views across the garden towards the river can be appreciated. There are an abundance of period features to include high ceilings picture rails and ceiling cornicing. Doors in the drawing room open into the beautiful timber conservatory.

The Conservatory has three sets of French doors opening out to the garden and a grapevine in situ. It is a superb spot for dining during the summer months.

The sitting room also has an attractive tiled fireplace with a wooden surround and mantle and a wood burning stove. This room also has an enormous walk-in bay window with a wonderful view across the front aspect.

Behind the sitting room is the former kitchen. It still has a range of base and wall units although it has been replaced by the larger kitchen found at the rear of the ground floor. This room offers potential to be transformed into a further reception room.

The dining kitchen offers a range of base and wall units, space for a range cooker and a double stainless steel sink and drainer under the picture window overlooking the Mediterranean style courtyard garden. Dining within the kitchen can be enjoyed as there is space for a family sized table in front of French doors opening out to a courtyard and pond. Tucked away at the rear of the kitchen is a utility area with space for a chest freezer, washing machine, dryer and fridge freezer. A sliding door near the kitchen opens to reveal stone steps that lead down to the cellar.

There are three vaults within the cellar.

Stairs from the main entrance lead up to the first floor landing. Just off the landing is a double bedroom with a wash hand basin and a view of the courtyard at the rear.

Also on this level is a large walk in airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and a bathroom with art deco wall tiles, a corner shower cubicle, wash hand basin and vanity unit. The w.c is in a separate room next door.

Stairs from the first floor landing lead up to two enormous bedrooms, both having outstanding views through large bay windows, across the front garden and River Wye. The bedroom, located above the ground floor drawing room has a beautiful fireplace and an en-suite shower room, with a corner shower with body jets (unknown if in working order), a wash hand basin, w.c and sauna.

The bedroom above the sitting room has a wash hand basin in the room.

Stairs from the opposite end of the first floor landing lead up to the rear entrance hall and reception area. This is a wonderful space with wide wooden floorboards, a vaulted ceiling and glazing to three sides. The stained glass panels will be removed before completion.

Further stairs lead up to the attic rooms. The main attic space is extremely spacious with triple aspect windows to three sides. It is currently used as a home office.

Several steps then lead up to a landing with a door at either end providing access into two further attic rooms, each having a circular window to the front aspect and a window to the rear. One of these rooms has a wash hand basin.

GARAGE AND STORE WITH ACCOMMODATION ABOVE

From the parking area steps lead up to self-contained accommodation. The accommodation is in need of updating and has an open plan sitting and dining area with doors opening onto a balcony. The sitting area has a wood burning stove and a kitchenette with a stainless steel sink and drainer, space for an undercounter fridge and a table top cooker and / or microwave oven.

There are windows to the front and rear aspects. It also has one double bedroom and a shower room. The self-contained accommodation is set above a garage, store and woodshed. There is potential to extend the accommodation (STP). The store is being used as a gym.

OUTSIDE

There are two impressive entrances with pillars either side each having a long driveway down to the main house. This gives easy access from the A466 from both Chepstow and Monmouth directions. The driveways are lined by an abundance of foliage, mature trees and wild garlic. This sets the scene for what is to come as you reach the main gardens and grounds. Within the grounds are a variety of mature trees to include Copper Beech and Weeping Willow. The property is set back from the road and is on a lower level so has much privacy enhanced by the mature trees.

The gardens and grounds are magical and enchanting with a natural water supply cascading down a waterfall into a man-made pond. A stream then continues to meander down past the property and a range of stone garden stores towards the River Wye. There are beautiful sculptures within the gardens and grounds. Many of these will be left in situ with a few of sentimental value going with the current owners.

A five bar gate leads into an area of reflection with a sculpture and then opens out onto the lower fields. The fields measure approximately 13 acres.

DETACHED STONE STABLES

The attractive, detached stone stable block has three extremely spacious stables and has potential to be converted into further accommodation subject to gaining any necessary planning consents. There are windows to the front aspect and a beautiful orchard with fruiting trees such as Quince, Crab Apple, Apple, Cherries and Walnut at the rear. Below the stables is a cellar. Behind the orchard is an open sided steel shed.
