Earlswood Chepstow, Monmouthshire
This family home is located in an elevated position, with truly stunning panoramic views across open countryside towards Wentwood Forest. The original building dating back to the 1700's has been sympathetically restored and renovated throughout with the addition of an extension during 1996. This spacious home, in a beautiful peaceful location, is perfect for horse or wildlife lovers with the benefit of the planning permissions to enlarge and improve to make the most of the scenic setting, giving potential vendors an opportunity to put their unique stamp on the property if they so wish. Planning has been granted allowing for further extensions, an outbuilding conversion, and the erection of a triple garage (this is due to expire in 2022). This will add 30% extra space inside creating an additional bedroom, doubling size of the kitchen, with a new vaulted dining room with huge windows to take in the views. Outside, plans are for a separate office building with large picture window overlooking the valley - perfect for those working from home. The current accommodation comprises entrance hall, living room, snug/tv room, cloakroom, dining room, tack/boot room, study/office, side porch/utility room, master bedroom with en-suite and covered balcony, four further bedrooms, family bathroom and separate shower room. The property is surrounded by approximately 7.5 acres of paddocks and woodlands. There is a barn with four loose boxes plus parking for numerous vehicles. Early viewing is strongly recommended. For the outdoor enthusiast there are excellent walks and hacking locally through country lanes and Wentwood Forest, the largest ancient woodland in Wales and the ninth largest in the UK, which comprises over 1,000 hectares and also contains Bronze Age burial mounds, a stone circle and a megalithic alignment on Grey Hill. The area is also popular with hillwalking and mountain biking enthusiasts and the Wentwood Reservoir, which opened in 1904, is a centre for trout fishing. The area is also home to thousands of wildlife species. Further sporting activities such as shooting, golf etc are all well catered for locally. Whilst the property is idyllically rural being part of this scattered hamlet, it is just six miles from the M48 at Chepstow and the Severn Bridge making it perfect for commuting to any of the surrounding cities.
