Property SummaryAn impressive and spacious barn conversion thoughtfully converted to offer substantial accommodation with well proportioned rooms. Tucked away at the end of a No Through Road, the property offers the benefit of rural living without isolation enjoying views across open countryside to the surrounding mountains.

The mature gardens and grounds total approximately 3 acres, with an acre of formal gardens, orchard and vegetable garden and a circa 2 acre adjoining paddock. In addition to the main house, is a stone built garage with pitched roof divided into a double garage and a further single garage. The barn occupies a rural but accessible location with excellent access to the major road networks of A449/A40/A465 leading to the M4/M5/M50 and a mainline railway station in Abergavenny, all within 2 miles.
