Property SummaryGlanusk Farm is set amidst the Lower Usk Valley between the local towns of Abergavenny and Usk. Looking out across the River Usk, this edge-of-village property is a rare opportunity to acquire a fascinating and flexible house, a barn conversion project, 15 acres of land and a modern farm building.
This delightful farmhouse was built to make the most of the lovely views out over the River Usk and dates back to 3 specific periods. Originally an 18th century cottage, a single-story extension was added in the 1970s and a more substantial elevation added in the late 1990s. Entered beneath a porch into a large hall with flagstone floors, the more recent elevation includes a host of period features such as oak skirting boards, doors and staircase with flagstone and polished oak flooring. The large kitchen, with its extensive range of built-in units, central island and feature brick alcove for a stove, has lovely views out over the gardens, whilst the sitting room beyond has French windows and log burner within an inglenook. A utility room and cloakroom are off the hall. The dining room, games room and office can be approached from the terrace or the upstairs landing. In addition, there is a self-contained ground floor bedroom and shower off an inner hall. This whole section could easily be secondary accommodation if a divide was required.
Upstairs there are 4 good bedrooms, 2 having en-suite showers. Off the landing is a family bathroom and a walk-in airing cupboard.
The garden is laid principally to lawn to make the most of the southern views out over the river and Valley beyond. Adjoining the house are wooden terracing and decking. There are some herbaceous beds, whilst to the rear is a further lawn, vegetable garden and an enclosure with shed and chicken coop.
The Land and Agricultural Outbuilding
The land surrounds the property and consists of four large fields, one flanking the River Usk. The land and outbuilding are subject to a tenancy under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 which brings in a modest income and is partly run as a fruit farm. The agents hold further details. A plan of the land is included in the photo slideshow.
Across from the house and slightly beneath is a stone barn which has planning permission for conversion to a property to include 2 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It could be sold separately or converted as a useful project.
Planning consent granted by Monmouthshire County Council dated 8th Jan 1997 under reference M/655 and Certificate of Existing Lawful Use or Development DM/2018/00540.
