Llanishen, Chepstow, Monmouthshire
An outstanding individual architect designed home, delightfully rural yet accessible, it lies down a leafy lane on the edge of the village of Llanishen, which is located some 7 miles from Monmouth and approximately 8 miles from Chepstow. The village boasts a pub (within walking distance) and also a vibrant and thriving village hall and community. The house itself is in an elevated yet sheltered position and commands truly breath-taking views over the Vale of Usk towards the Blorenge. Built in the 1960s the property has a light and airy contemporary feel. Designed over two levels, the upper level being the main residence and the lower level affording two self contained flats (for relatives, guests or having income potential). The Vendor has made this a much loved home for the last 14 years during which time there have been substantial improvements. Three years ago a major extension was added providing yet more light and space and exceptional features for the wheelchair user (many of these mobility features have been designed for ease of removal if so desired) There has been re-wiring plumbing and upgraded insulation installed throughout the property and a modern treatment plant drainage system has also been added. There are a plethora of walks over the surrounding countryside and motorway links are accessed at Monmouth and Chepstow for the M4, M48 and M50 for Newport, Cardiff, Gloucester, Bristol and London. Rail links are at Chepstow and Newport.
