In a lovely rural setting this converted stone barn enjoys far reaching countryside views and enjoys gardens of around an acre and a paddock of around 2 acres in size. Although the property is situated in the countryside, it is only a few minutes' drive from the town centre and the dual carriageways for commuting to Newport or Cardiff. The barn has been sympathetically restored and converted to project a lot of character with the flagstone floors, exposed stonework and exposed Oak beams and trusses.
The property also benefits from ecologically from the installation of an air source heat pump for the under-floor heating and for hot water. The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises a cosy sitting room with a large stone fireplace and a wood burning stove, a spacious living room with views across the gardens, a separate dining room, a fitted kitchen of generous size with a centre island and a large multi oven range cooker, a utility area and a shower room/wc. To the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with a separate shower.
The 3 acres of grounds are made up of formal gardens, paved sun terraces and an adjacent paddock (approx. 2 acres). Within the grounds is a two storey double garage with an internal staircase and which offers the chance to have an office or studio on the first floor. Behind the garage is the stable block with two full size stables and a feed room.
