Asking Price £895,000
Springfield House is a handsome period property which although dating back to the Victorian era, was considerably extended nearly 30 years ago. With its beautifully converted annexe, outbuildings, gardens and grounds, it really is a perfect country house.
The property is approached by a gravel drive to a large parking area. A porch leads into a large hall and off to the well-proportioned reception rooms. These have period features such as decorative coving, interesting fireplaces and lovely light windows overlooking the gardens and woodland, yet all combined with a contemporary feel. There is a large drawing room and lounge, including an inset log burner and period fireplaces, with doors to the gardens. There is a spacious playroom room and study, whilst the kitchen/breakfast room has a range of well fitted units, and a door to the dining room with sprung floor and wide windows overlooking the parking area and front lawns. The utility room includes the oil-fired boiler with a door to outside. The stairs lead up to a light landing with doors to the four bedrooms, all well-proportioned and having lovely views. The master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom and there is an en-suite shower and a family bathroom with airing cupboard.
From Monmouth or Chepstow take the B4293 to Trellech. Opposite the church and alongside the Lion Inn take the road signed to Maryland, Pen-y-Fan and The Narth. After 1½ miles turn right towards Pen-y-Fan and the drive to Springfield House is 0.3 of a mile on the right alongside a bridleway.
The main gardens are to three sides of the house and are dotted with mature trees including Beech, Sweet Chestnut and Walnut and enhanced by the delightful wooded background. There are a combination of lawns, hidden ponds and paths, terraces, herbaceous beds, mature plants and shrubs which all come together to create a riot of colour in the Spring. Closer to the house is a gravelled Mediterranean herb garden whilst a substantial area of kitchen garden is behind the house. The entrance drive has sweeping lawns either side. A working well is located in central parking area together with an old cider press. Running to the south are a series of paddocks and a delightful bluebell wood. There are a series of sheds closer to the house as well as a field shelter in the main paddock.
The Stables is just across from the house but very private. It was converted to a high standard and is a substantial house in itself and comprises a large reception room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and a bathroom. It has its own private garden with gravel pathways, lawn, well-stocked beds and a raised flagstone terrace.
Springfield House is situated within the small hamlet of Pen-y-Fan just outside The Narth amidst the glorious wooded landscape of the lower Wye Valley. It is conveniently positioned for both Monmouth and Chepstow as well as the M4 and on to Bristol and Cardiff. Monmouth is known for its quality shops including Waitrose and Marks & Spencer as well as the Haberdashers schools for Boys and Girls. Historic Chepstow is famous for its racecourse and castle, and St John’s on the Hill preparatory school is very popular. Railway stations include Newport, Chepstow and Bristol Parkway. There is an abundance of recreational opportunities in the vicinity which include glorious walks and horse riding through the surrounding woodland and countryside, fishing on the River Wye, golf at St.Pierre Golf & Country Club and leisure centres in Monmouth and Chepstow.
