An impressive house, both in size and stature, offering either a substantial family home or the potential for home and income/dual family occupation. Located in an accessible position within the Usk Valley and offering equestrian facilities, outbuildings and circa 11 acres of glorious, mature gardens and pasture paddocks.
Located in the beautiful Usk Valley this impressive 3 storey period Georgian style house believed to have been a 16th century farmhouse remodelled and extended in both the Georgian and Victorian eras. This versatile house, offering in excess of 5000 sq ft/468 sq metres of accommodation, comprises the main house with an attached wing, providing either a substantial family home, home and income, venue or multi generational living. In addition to the main house are several stone outbuildings plus a stable block which could, subject to the relevant planning consents, be converted to additional accommodation or holiday lets or kept for their intended purpose of livestock and equestrian use. This striking property is set in landscaped, mature gardens with views across open fields and has the benefit of pasture paddocks, an outdoor manege and hardstanding for a horse lorry/trailer. The gardens and grounds total circa 11 acres with a further 7 acres, with a separate access, being available by separate negotiation. Located on the fringe of a sought after village with excellent transport links to both main A roads and motorway networks.
From Abergavenny Hardwick Roundabout take the B4598 Raglan Road. Take the right hand turning towards Usk, continuing on the B4598, by the Steel Horse Café. Immediately after passing through the village of Llanfair Kilgeddin, take the right hand turning by the former school and continue for just under half a mile where the entrance to the property will be found on the right hand side.
The principal rooms are of generous proportions and tastefully decorated, features include high ceilings, ornate cornice, ceiling roses and attractive open fireplaces. An ideal house for entertaining with a spacious kitchen/breakfast room plus an appealing formal dining room with space to accommodate a sizeable dining table and sideboard. The drawing room, one of 4 reception rooms, has doors opening out to the terrace with views across the lawns. On the first and second floors are spacious bedrooms, dressing rooms and bathrooms which could be configured as bedroom suites. The attached wing, predominately used for storage by the present owners, has the potential to provide further accommodation, office space or Bed and Breakfast/holiday let. Several rooms within the wing have been, during recent years, been used as a games room, office and a self contained apartment. This part of the house links to the main house and has the added benefit of a separate external entrance.
The gardens have been lovingly created over the years with a wealth of mature plants and trees including a spectacular magnolia tree. The gardens comprise level lawns, an orchard and an abundance of planted beds and borders. A veranda with glazed room and metal stanchions lies to one side of the house adjoining the terrace and seating area. Tucked away amongst the mature gardens, to the side of the house, is a decked area with hot tub and pergola over. A previous owner, back in the 1960s, travelled widely on business and brought back some very rare and unusual trees, which were planted at St Mary’s Hill including gorgeous emperor magnolia tree.
In addition to the stable block are several outbuildings including several stores/hay barns, a substantial detached stone agricultural barn and stone agricultural buildings. There is potential, subject to the relevant planning consents, to convert the outbuildings to holiday lets or ancillary accommodation.
