Description - Situated in a quiet cul-de sac, on the edge of the sought-after, family-friendly village of St Arvans, this detached, executive-style, four-bedroom home has generous gardens and views over open fields at the back.
The vendors have lived in the property since 1998, when it was built as part of an exclusive development. They chose it for its semi-rural location and its proximity to the Dell Primary School, which their children attended. It's so quiet and it's made the perfect place to bring up a family. "We have loved it here. It is surrounded by lovely countryside and as the children grew older, it was easy to get into Chepstow for school and leisure activities."
The front door opens to a hallway, which has attractive oak flooring, installed by the vendors. This flooring extends throughout most of the ground floor of the property, with the exception of the kitchen, which has a tiled floor.
Off the central hallway there is a handy storage cupboard and a downstairs cloakroom. A door leads to the study, where there is also a useful inbuilt cupboard. Another door opens to the kitchen, which has an extensive range of limed oak floor and wall units and space for a dining table, where the vendors say they congregate for family meals. There is also a separate dining room, more generally used for formal entertaining. This has French doors to the back patio.
On the opposite side of the hallway is the living room, which extends from the front to the back of the property. This room has a bay window, overlooking the front garden and double French doors opening to the rear patio. A focal feature of this light and airy room is a wood burner with an oak mantle over. Both were added by the vendors, who, within the past three years, have also had all the double glazed windows replaced and have installed a new boiler.
The downstairs accommodation is completed by a utility room, adjacent to the kitchen. The utility room has a door giving access round the side of the house to the back garden.
Stairs from the hallway lead up to a spacious gallery landing. Leading off are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with a bath with a shower over. The charming master bedroom overlooks the rear gardens and the fields beyond. An arched opening leads from the bedroom through to a dressing room, with a range of built-in wardrobes each side and a door to the ensuite shower room.
Explore the Area:- - St Arvans is a small village set in beautiful countryside and with a pretty, peaceful historic heart surrounded by more recent development. Together with its outlying rural homesteads it numbers some 750 or so residents. It's a friendly place with a strong sense of community and popular with young families.
Village facilities include a shop, pub, church and day nursery. The Memorial Hall hosts a busy calendar of events, including art workshops, toddler groups, U3A events and monthly film showings. There's a local amateur drama group and the usual village fetes and fairs. There are also two playing fields - the King George's Field, which is well equipped with play equipment and a playing field adjacent to the Memorial Hall which is home to the Garden City Football Club. Chepstow racecourse is within walking distance and there are golf and leisure facilities at nearby St Pierre Golf & Country Club.
St Arvans is situated in the Lower Wye Valley, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it a good base for those who enjoy the outdoors - walking, cycling and enjoying beautiful scenery and wildlife. Yet it is only two miles from Chepstow, the historic gateway to Wales, where there are schools, further leisure facilities, a range of independent shops, cafes and restaurants, supermarkets and an M&S Foodhall. The ancient market town is the site of Chepstow Castle, reputedly the earliest stone-built Norman stronghold, which hosts a season of outdoor events and live entertainment.
From St Arvans, it's only three and a half miles to the Severn Bridge and to the motorway network, bringing Bristol, Newport and Cardiff within easy reach. There are regular trains to London from Bristol Parkway and international flights from Bristol and Cardiff airports.
Outside - At the front of the property a wide driveway, with parking for up to four cars, leads to a double garage. In front of the house there is an area of level lawn where there are flower beds, shrubs and a silver birch tree.
A gate leads along the side of the garage to the back garden, which is laid to lawn, with flower beds in each corner and a variety of established trees, including an oak, a flowering cherry and a Bramley apple tree. There are two raised beds of herbs and flowers on the paved patio which runs the width of the back of the house. Accessed through French doors from both the living room and the dining room, the patio makes a fantastic space for relaxing and entertaining. In fine weather, it benefits from sunshine throughout the day: "The garden is west-facing and the patio is always warm and sheltered. There's a barbeque base there, which we had put in by the builder in the same brick as the house. It's a great place for family get-togethers."
