Property description

Plas Newydd is Grade11 listed, built between 1835 and 1837, located in secluded gardens of almost two acres in the lee of the grounds of Usk Castle and yet only a few hundred yards from the centre of the historic town of Usk. The facilities of the town including shops, pubs, cafes, the Three Salmons Hotel and Restaurant and the Primary School and Nursery. There is simple access to the River Usk, famed for salmon and trout fishing.

Usk is geographically well situated with dual carriageways/motorways placing the cities of Newport, Cardiff and Bristol within commuting distance and giving easy access to London, the Midlands and the West Country. Intercity train services to Paddington run from Newport and Bristol Parkway.

The British Listed Buildings website, (Plas Newydd, Usk, Monmouthshire) gives a good description of the history of the house and architectural features. The house has spacious, well proportioned principal rooms with delightful aspects overlooking the gardens.

Since it was built, Plas Newydd has changed hands only four times. The current owners have found the house ideally suited to bringing up a family and occupation by three generations. It would lend itself to a number of business uses such as a Boutique Hotel or B&B.
