Set amongst the scenic countryside of Monmouthshire, yet close to many local amenities. Great Barn is a modern home that inspires and delights. Originally a stone built Welsh barn it was initially converted in 2001 and it has then been redesigned and completely refurbished. It now stands as a luxurious, contemporary home that has lost nothing of its original character and charm.
In addition to the internal refurbishment Great Barn has gone through some extensive environmental improvements to include a replacement under-floor air-source heat pump system, new argon filled hardwood double glazing and LED lighting throughout.
The barn is approached by a long drive and forms one of a small group of former stone barns. Access is via large electric double wooden gates with intercom system.
With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, the 3,000 sqft barn conversion benefits from 1 acre of gardens and a further 4.5 acres of grazing, paddocks and 2 sets of stables.
The barn features a spectacular 700sqft lofted lounge, with exposed green oak beams, a fully hardwood glazed wall with 6m’s of bi-fold doors opening up the lounge to the decked area overlooking the front garden.
