This attractive Grade II listed detached period house is believed to have been built in the late 1800’s with both Victorian and Edwardian influences. Evidence of the earlier dwelling on the site can be seen, especially within the outbuildings. The house has some magnificent period fireplaces with picture tiles, we believe designed by J Moyr Smith for Minton China Works with scenes from Shakespeare (c1873), Idylls of the King (c1875) and Spirit of the Flowers (1872-3). Additional period features include an impressive staircase in the reception hall with turned vases to the newels, dado panelling and doors, panelled timber walls, high ceilings with coving, stained glass and casement windows. The attractive brick façade is in contrast to the many stone fronted Victorian properties in the area and in keeping with the nearby Edwardian Fosterville Crescent. Located in a prominent, yet secluded location, on the Monmouth Road, the property is well served for road and rail links with the railway station in walking distance. Set back off the road behind double gates, the driveway offers ample parking and access to the garage/outbuildings and to the mature, private gardens bordered by a brook, with woodland to the rear. The house was, a number of years ago, used as a Bed & Breakfast but the present owners have enjoyed living in the house as a substantial family home in a most convenient location.
From Abergavenny town centre, follow Cross Street into Lower Cross Street passing the bus station on the left hand side and the Abergavenny Hotel on the right hand side. Brookfield will be found on the left hand side immediately after the 2nd left hand turning into Fosterville Crescent.

The house is set back from the road by a substantial stone wall with double metal gates mounted on stone pillars leading to the extensive drive and parking area. The front garden, bordered by a stone wall, includes flower and shrub borders, mature and specimen trees. To the side of the house at the front is a useful studio/workshop of timber framed construction with electric light and power, sink and telephone point. The secluded rear garden adjoins the brook and again, has mature plants and shrubs with an adjoining patio. Also to the rear of the house is a range of stone built outbuildings with electric light and power and cold water supply. The outbuildings have some interesting features and pre-date the present dwelling. There is an extra piece of land to the rear that is mostly woodland.
We are advised that mains water, electricity, gas and drainage are connected to the property. Gas fired central heating system.
We have been advised that there are tree preservation orders on five of the trees in the grounds.
