Built in 1961, Fernhill sits in an incredible position overlooking the Usk Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty seven miles to the south of Monmouth. Built at an elevated position, the house has a striking profile, with timber stilts and a mono-pitch roof. The main living areas have been cleverly conceived in a lateral layout across the upper floor with large picture windows framing the superlative views from every aspect. Clad in cedar, the property feels wholly embedded within its immediate landscape.
The internal accommodation measures 2,697 sq ft across the two floors. The open-plan living room is an incredibly light space with a corner wall of floor-to-ceiling glazing. Sliding glass doors lead out to the balcony, with far-reaching views across the Vale of Usk and the neighbouring 350-year-old oaks. A separate dining area interlinks the living room and kitchen, which has a long granite work-space and oil fired Aga. A reclaimed gymnasium floor of solid beech runs underfoot.
The hallway is a bright space, naturally lit from the skylights overhead. On the opposite side of the first-floor plan are three bedrooms, the master with an en-suite, separate dressing room and access out to the terrace. A tiered garden wraps the house, with mature planting and natural woodland surrounding. Tucked into a tranquil spot in the corner of the upper terrace is a timber-frame sauna room, from which a series of steps lead down to the lower level of the house. The ground floor is currently organised as two self-contained living spaces, each with one bedroom, a kitchen and a living room area. There is also a large double garage at the foot of the driveway.
The village of Llanishen has a thriving community, with a good local pub predating 1700. A good selection of primary and secondary schools fall within the catchment area and three Michelin-starred restaurants are also nearby: The Crown, The Walnut Tree and The Hardwick.
Bristol is reachable in 40 minutes by car and Hereford is less than 30 miles north.
