Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming period country house on the edge of the village of Devauden with spacious grounds.

The Dorretts is believed to have been built in 1905 for a prominent shipping family on the site of a much older dwelling. With views to the rear of the Village Green, the house has rolling countryside to the south facing front and a useful selection of outbuildings and a cottage on the yard, to the side. A central hall leads on to the large reception rooms with period features such as handsome fireplaces, parquet floors, picture and dado rails and prominent bay windows overlooking the gardens. The kitchen has an oil-fired AGA inset in a chimney breast with a range of kitchen units, whilst useful rooms such as the utility and laundry room are off. A handsome staircase leads up to a large well lit landing and on to the five bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which is en-suite with attractive views to the south. There is a large indoor swimming pool with pump and changing rooms and sauna with a conservatory adjoining, overlooking the gardens.

The Dorretts is situated on the edge of the small village of Devauden amidst exceptionally beautiful countryside a few miles to the west of Chepstow. The historic town has extensive shops, schools and professional services and is famous for its medieval castle and racecourse, whilst the village itself has a small garage with a traditional shop attached. There are excellent state and private schools in the vicinity including Haberdashers’ Monmouth for boys and girls and St Johns-On-The Hill. A good bus service is available to these schools from the village. The M48 and M4 provide good access to Bristol, the major centres of South Wales and London. There are rail stations at Chepstow and Severn Junction, whilst Bristol Parkway has a rapid service to London Paddington.
