DESCRIPTION
Sitting in grounds approaching an acre in size, this imposing 3 storey detached residence is full of history and character and enjoys a southerly aspect to the rear with glorious views across fields and open countryside towards Monmouth. The property retains numerous original features and is a very comfortable home for the present owners. The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises the 'Bread Oven' entrance (from days when bread was baked on the premises), a very large open plan kitchen / dining room with farmhouse style kitchen units, an inner hallway with a feature stone staircase, a conservatory/garden room, separate sitting room/snug, a fifth double bedroom and a full bathroom/utility room. To the first floor there is a magnificent lounge / drawing room which is over 32' in length and again enjoys the countryside views to the rear, plus a generous study/office. The second floor accommodation comprises 4 double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a cast iron roll top bath plus separate shower. As well as the numerous original features the property does benefit from double glazing and central heating.
The extensive grounds are mainly to lawn and there is a sun terrace for al-fresco dining. The gardens have also been planted with a wide variety of shrubs and trees. There are also substantial outbuildings, and the workshop/store rooms at the rear have had planning permission for change of use to residential but it should be noted this has now lapsed.
