Full description

Nestled in the heart of the Usk Valley in the village community of Llanellen near Abergavenny, the Old Vicarage is a superb four bedroom period home of exceptional charm that boasts a wealth of features and character throughout. The property occupies a unique place in local literary history, being the former residence of renowned author, Alexander Cordell, who penned his novel ?The Rape of the Fair Country? while at the Old Vicarage.
Historically extended from the original two bedroom, double fronted Vicarage, the property now affords almost 3000 sq ft of flexible accommodation. The extensive ground floor is entered via an entrance porch and hallway, that leads left to the original sitting room focussed around a fireplace with wood burning stove and benefiting from pitch pine floors and French doors to the side garden. A wide arch opens onto the formal dining room which includes a recessed bookshelf and further fireplace. Arguably the more day to day heart of this home is the superb 23' kitchen/diner which is divided by a feature brick chimney stack and benefits from a solid fuel Aga. Adjacent to the dining area is a large study with separate entrance enjoying attached shower room that allows undoubted potential as guest accommodation or for those looking for multi-generational living. The hall to the rear opens onto the modern sun room overlooking the garden while stairs lead up the impressive second sitting room with Minstrel's gallery and wood burning stove. In addition, the ground floor also benefits from a separate utility room, guest WC and large rear entrance hall.
Upstairs the airy landing links a delightful master bedroom with dual aspect, feature fireplace and smartly presented en-suite shower room, with two further large double bedrooms. In addition, there is a generous single bedroom and a four-piece family bathroom with free standing roll top bath. Linked to the property and accessed from the sun room is a large single garage, beyond which is recently converted office, which provides an ideal opportunity for those looking to improve their work/home balance, or run a small business.
The Old Vicarage is set back behind a low walled frontage with wrought iron railings, and driveway to the side providing parking for five cars. It is set within impressive grounds with an area of garden to the side, which would historically provided access to the entrance of the old house. The garden to the rear is delightful, mature as one would expect and providing a wonderful opportunity for keen gardeners. A large area of lawn is interspersed by various shrubs and a selection of impressive trees including a Magnolia, Berberis, Copper Beech and 200 year old Box tree. There are also several fruit trees that give a rich annual harvest of apples, pears and damsons. Meandering beds and borders run throughout the garden and for pure entertaining there is a large patio seating area to the fore from which to survey this fabulous garden, as charming and idiosyncratic as the house itself.
In summary, the Old Vicarage is a truly delightful home; at once quintessentially period while working equally well for the needs of modern day to day living. It further benefits from a popular village location a short walk from the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal and countryside walks, as well as the extensive amenities and transport links of nearby Abergavenny.
