PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Believed to have been a granary/agricultural building and subsequently converted to a cottage. This pretty stone built dwelling forms part of a cluster of properties set in idyllic surroundings. The present owner has improved the cottage incorporating the garage to create additional living accommodation and enlarging an existing first floor bedroom. The cottage has a wealth of character including exposed timbers, oak lintels and floors and wood burning stoves. To the front of the cottage is a private, gravelled parking area, a mature garden with a path leading to a paddock and stable block. From the front of the cottage and the paddock are the most superb views of the surrounding countryside. The cottage is situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park and has the benefit of offering an opportunity to enjoy a rural location although not isolated. The works and improvements to the cottage have been completed to a high standard by local, well regarded trades people and the property has been well maintained by the present owner.

LOCATION The property is located in a beautiful valley within the Brecon Beacons National Park with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The area is much sought after and is a haven for wildlife as well as being steeped in history. Located approximately 6 miles North of Abergavenny and 5 miles from Crickhowell. The A40 can be joined at Crickhowell and links with the A465 and A449 at Abergavenny. These 'A' roads link to the M5/M4 and M50 motorway network. A main line railway station can be found in Abergavenny with larger stations in Newport and Hereford. The approximate distance to cities:- Bristol 55 Miles, Cardiff 47 Miles, Hereford 23 Miles and London 150 miles.


Ground Floor A welcoming entrance porch/boot room, with beautiful views, leads to the front door and spacious living room with wood burning stove, exposed timbers and stairs to first floor. Continue through to the kitchen/breakfast room, again with views to the front and side, fitted with a comprehensive range of base and wall cupboards and ample space for a table. The kitchen leads through to a dining room/hobby room with glazed double doors to the rear courtyard. This room could be utilised as an occasional bedroom. A door from this ground floor room leads to a utility room with separate shower room. The utility room has space for appliances, a door to outside, access to the oil fired central heating boiler and to a cloakroom.

First Floor The staircase from the living room leads to the first floor landing providing access to 2 bedrooms, a 3rd bedroom which has a dressing room/nursery and a modern bathroom with large roof light. Two of the bedrooms have windows to the front affording beautiful views, the rear bedroom has views to the side. From the rear bedroom is an external wooden door opening to stone steps which lead to the rear courtyard.

STEP OUTSIDE Approached via a shared driveway off a country lane leading to a wooden five bar gate and the private gravelled parking area to the front and side of the house. The parking area is bordered by mature shrubs and plants with a central path leading towards the paddock. Between the garden and the paddock is a grassed area with a five bar gate from the driveway providing access for a horse box or stock trailer. Beyond the grassed area is the level paddock accessed via a wooden 5 bar gate and enclosed by post and rail fencing. To one side of the paddock is a wooden stable block and a small yard.

Stables The wooden stable block forms an 'L' shape which comprises 2 loose boxes, a haystore and tack room with a small yard to the front. The stables have rubber flooring and an electricity supply.

Paddock Across the lane and entered via a metal gate is a paddock of circa 2 acres (not measured). The paddock is enclosed by post and rail fencing and is predominately level with the ground sloping away towards the Grwyne Fawr River. This beautiful paddock, not only has spectacular views but is enchanting and tranquil down by the river side. There is a bridge across the river which is redundant as the boundary on the far side is the neighbour's field. NB There is some Japanese Knotweed by the river bank which we understand has been treated.

AGENT'S NOTES The driveway is part owned by Trewyscoed House and Trewyscoed Mill with Trewyscoed Granary having a legal right of access over the driveway. NB please note the gardens, grounds and paddocks have not been measured.

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS Unless specifically described in these particulars, all fixtures and fittings are excluded from the sale though may be available by separate negotiation.
