A sixteenth century farmhouse enjoying a wealth of period features, three reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen, five bedrooms, two bathrooms. Detached one bedroom cottage. Range of stone outbuildings and approximately 12 acres of land to include a beautiful garden. Superb views.
For the first time in approximately 25 years, we have the pleasure of offering this property to the open market. This magnificent period farmhouse, with its excellent range of outbuildings together with approximately 12 acres of grounds, offer a truly rare opportunity indeed for prospective purchasers.
Dating back to the late sixteenth century with modifications carried out in the mid-seventeenth century, the original house offers a wealth of features including a magnificent fireplace, timbers, windows etc, which all justify its Grade II listing. Over the years it has been the subject of sensitive renovation yet not at the expense of its history. The work carried out includes re-roofing, the installation of an oil heating system and double glazing as well as a bespoke kitchen. In addition, the former cider house has been converted into a delightful one bedroom detached cottage which has also been renovated to create an ideal extension to the main accommodation which may be suitable for extended family or as a holiday let. The stone outbuildings include a two storey studio and a barn and they have been subject to extensive renovation. There is also a timber framed stable block, all being within approximately 12 acres of land which includes paddocks and a beautiful garden. From the grounds some truly beautiful views may be enjoyed.
The surrounding area of north-east Monmouthshire is renowned for its ancient history with Cross Ash being located almost centrally to the three castles of White Castle, Grosmont and Skenfrith. Cross Ash school is approximately a mile away.
The neighbouring towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth are 8 and 9 miles distant respectively, both offering a range of amenities with the former having the benefit of a mainline railway station and general hospital and the latter having the internationally rated Monmouth School. Both towns have road links to South Wales and to The Midlands.
The Pant is a truly unique property and we strongly recommend potential purchasers carry out an inspection in order to fully appreciate all that this superb property has to offer.
