Forge Road, Tintern, Near Chepstow, Monmouthshire
Located in the idyllic Angiddy Valley just a short drive from the centre of Tintern and the River Wye, this beautifully refurbished house originally believed to have been the Wireworks Manager's home is coming onto the market for the first time in over 30 years and being sold with no upper chain. The 18th Century Georgian structure has been substantially extended over the years and once operated as a bed and breakfast. Whilst still maintaining many original features, this large family home now offers spacious family sized accommodation with a low maintenance conversion that would offer a self-contained annexe for multi-generational living if required. The overall accommodation is set over four floors and comprises entrance hall, living room, music room, study/bedroom five, large sitting room with balcony overlooking the main garden and office to the ground floor. The lower ground floor comprises kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, games room, snug, utility/boot room. There are two en-suite bedrooms to the first floor and a further two en-suite bedrooms to the second floor. The popular local village of Tintern is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and designated as a Conservation Area and is on the west bank of the River Wye in Monmouthshire, Wales, close to the border with England, and about 5 miles north of Chepstow. The village was formed through the coalescence of two historic villages Tintern Parva on the north side of the village and Chapel Hill which forms the southern end. Tintern is probably best known for it's Abbey, the remains of which dominate the skyline. The Cistercian Abbey was founded by Walter De Clare in 1131 during the reign of King Henry I. The area is home to an extensive network of local footpaths that link with two long-distance paths the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path, crossing the former wireworks railway bridge onto the English side of the river you will find several clearly marked paths, the most notable of with is the one to the 'Devil's Pulpit'.
