PONT Vaen is a Grade II Listed stone country house under a slate roof, constructed circa 1830, set in approximately 11 acres of varied landscape behind a stone wall with two sets of gates on stone pillars.

It is located in Herefordshire on the Welsh border, and about a mile from Hay-on-Wye.

The property has been carefully updated by the present owners, whilst retaining the original features.

The house displays many architectural features of its period including gothic windows and oak mullions.

It has carved wood architraves above some of the doors, some picture rails and shuttered wood-panelled windows and the original stone fireplace surrounds.

Pont Vaen has a friendly atmosphere and offers spacious and comfortable accommodation throughout, with almost every room enjoying beautiful countryside and garden views.

Outside there are mature gardens, a landscaped patio, extensive lawns with fruit trees and a Victorian glass house.

In addition, there is a level fenced paddock measuring 1.6 acres with a detached barn, and a water meadow of three acres on the banks of the River Wye.

The former railway embankment leads to a wide pathway through mature woodland, with several routes to the river bank to enjoy the scenic picnic spots and the abundance of wildlife.

A water walk beside the brook, through the copse, leads to a pretty waterfall (mentioned in Kilvert’s Dairy).

The extensive outbuildings include a coach house, barn, workshop, apple store and even a hide on the woodland walk.

The River Wye borders the property and the fishing rights approximately 600 metres of single bank are included in the sale.
