Property description

Off a quiet lane and nestled within about three acres of spectacular land inside the magnificent Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this four-bed, detached house is a special home offering an idyllic country lifestyle. Brookhill House is a handsome abode elevated above the mesmerising Monmouthshire landscape which creates breathtaking, panoramic views to the Black Mountains and famous Sugar Loaf from its glorious gardens.

The thoughtful design of this spacious and light, much-loved family home ensures there are plenty of places to enjoy lingering and admiring the panoramic view from inside too, including an abundance of large windows and an intimate first-floor balcony. Inside, the welcoming and comfortable house has three spacious reception rooms, a games room and four double bedrooms that includes a vast principal suite that runs from the front to the rear of the property.

Outside there are walks to enjoy through a bluebell covered woodland and mature gardens that include an orchard, vegetable plot and heated swimming pool set against the constantly enthralling and ever-changing backdrop of the astounding rural vista. As well as the location cocooned by peaceful countryside, the home is also perfectly positioned to combine a rural retreat for a life less stressful with the convenience of being only about three miles away from Monmouth.

The popular town offers a range of independent shops plus famous High Street brands such as Waitrose and Marks and Spencer, and an abundance of cafes, pubs and restaurants. The town and surrounding area is an attractive location for families, with a choice of top educational offerings including the Haberdashers' Monmouth independent boys' and girls' schools. With easy access to transport links to further afield Newport, Cardiff and Bristol, the property has the perfect balance of an outstanding rural location with connections to larger urban areas in any direction.

Step inside:- - A wooden gate off Common Road gives access to a long tarmac driveway which leads around the back of the house to a detached double garage, with parking in front of it for two cars.

The property, thought to have its origins in the 1930s but extended since, has an attractive symmetrical facade with two gables flanking a first floor balcony.

From the front of the house, steps lead up to a raised patio and to the main entrance doorway, although there is also the convenience of a back door leading from the parking area to a rear hall.

From the front hallway, a door opens to a cosy snug, just one of the "many rooms with a view", with a bay window facing west. The other side of the hallway is a formal dining room, with an archway to the large living room. The dining room has windows to both the front and back of the property, whilst the living room has a bay window to the front, enjoying the amazing, long-distance, westerly outlook.

Arrive at the front gate of this attractive home and the driveway gently rises to the elevated front terrace that is a bonus outdoor space sure to impress as it welcomes visitors.

Step inside and the central hall is the gateway into a home that is full of light accompanied by an instantly welcoming ambience that emanates through each spacious room created by 37 years of family memories that span from the current owners' children through to grandchildren.

It is thought that the house has its origins in the 1930s but has been extended over the years to create a family home that flows through connected rooms but can also offer more intimate, separate spaces.

To the right is the cosy snug that can boast one of the characterful bay windows that flank the front door so the rural view can join anyone who is happily watching television, working at a window desk, or using this space as a music room or library.

Across the hall is a large formal dining room that instantly impresses with a choice of captivating views through the windows. To the front the panoramic landscape will enthral, to the rear the astoundingly beautiful garden will distract, and to the side, through the archway to the lounge the third vista looks out over the meadows.

Wandering through the archway reveals the sizable, comfortable lounge which can boast a front bay window and a picture window perfectly framing a vista of the rear garden. The generous, sociable room is centred around a fireplace that is home to a Jotul wood burning stove bringing character as well as warmth to the space.

The generously proportioned, well-equipped kitchen is cloaked in wall and base units in a classic country-style complementing the ceiling beams and can easily accommodate a table and chairs for a relaxed dining experience.

Further windows to the side and back of the living room take in the lovely gardens and grounds. This light and airy room is made cosy in colder months by a Jotul wood burning stove set in a feature fireplace.

The fitted kitchen, at the back of the property, has a range of integrated appliances and space for a breakfast table. It has a door to the rear hall, which houses the boiler and a tumble dryer. Off the rear hall is a WC and there is also a utility room, which has a fitted unit under the sink, wall cupboards, a useful cleaning cupboard and a washing machine.

The rear hall also gives access to the spacious and flexible games room, once used for family games of table tennis but now providing "fantastic storage space." This room has French doors to the back driveway from where there are steps up to the patio, swimming pool and lawns, so it could equally be used as a garden room and there are times when it has been.

From the property's main hallway, an open tread staircase leads up to a galleried landing. The generous, principal bedroom was originally two rooms, knocked into one by former owners. "We think they did that to take advantage of the views to the front of the property. They had a sitting area under the window. When we were working, we had our desks there." The principal suite includes a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower.

From the landing a corridor leads to three further double bedrooms, which share a family bathroom with a walk-in shower. From the corridor, double French doors open to the first floor balcony. "It makes a lovely place for morning coffee, with views that are just slightly more elevated than they are from the patio."

The much-loved, spacious home is versatile enough to change with the needs of a growing family, with the games room at the rear of the home the perfect example. This substantial space has seen table tennis battles through the years and has been a garden room due to its direct access to the garden via French doors. The room is currently being used for storage and would also make a very pleasant and palatial home office.

The rear of the home also has practical spaces for supporting a busy family's life, with a rear entrance hall a bonus for welcoming muddy boots, children and dogs that has access to a cloakroom and utility room where there are homes for the boiler, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Up to the first floor and the galleried landing has access to the family bathroom, three double bedrooms and a principal bedroom suite so spacious it runs from the front of the house right to the back.

A previous owner has combined two former bedrooms to create this enviably large suite. There's an area for a substantial bed in the centre and an area at the front that can boast the exceptional rural view and is another versatile space - it can easily be designed as a dressing area, lounge or even a work space.

Through an archway on the way to the four-piece en-suite at the rear of this principal bedroom there are built-in wardrobes tucked away to provide ample storage and free up the bedroom space from extra bulky furniture.

From the galleried landing there is access to the first-floor balcony which is a cleverly integrated bonus outdoor space, flanked between the two symmetrical wings of the house, and maybe the best location to become totally immersed in the expansive view from the most elevated position at this truly special home.

Outside - Step outside and wandering through the private, magical garden and about three acres of land is an enchanting experience. There is a wonderful walk through a bluebell carpeted wood lit by dappled sunlight, drenched in nature and wildlife, and accompanied by bird song and insect chatter. Choose a relaxing stroll through the mature gardens via an abundance of routes that include happening upon an orchard, a vegetable plot, and two wildlife meadows which have been recognised by Gwent Wildlife Trust as a Local Wildlife Site'.

To complete the tranquil rural scene, there is also a picturesque babbling brook ambling through the land with a classic stone bridge, ensuring the delightfully gentle sound of trickling water is added to the wildlife soundtrack that envelopes this fabulous home.

The outdoor, heated swimming pool and patio at the rear of the house, nestled within the rear lawn, is the place to soak up the sun, enjoy alfresco dining, and relax on a lounger accompanied by a relaxing holiday ambience that this idyllic location can provide.

The pool and patio can welcome the best parties in the area, years of family fun, and a refreshing early morning swim, with the water heated by an air source heat pump that captures heat from the air and transfers it to the pool, making it economical to run. But if a daily dip or pool-side existence is not required, the pool can easily be filled in to create a super-sized garden terrace so the socialising in the sun doesn't stop, it expands into the garden and rolls out towards the perfectly manicured lawns.

The garden can offer many places to linger and lounge in peace or invite family and friends to enjoy social gatherings and alfresco dining, including a house hugging patio directly accessed from the rear of the house. At the front entrance of this gem of a property is another thoughtfully positioned garden terrace, a special spot to sit and admire the breath-taking view at any time of the day or night, any time of the year.

From a morning coffee to a nightcap drink under the hypnotic blanket of stars, from crisp winter frosts to the first buds of spring, the front terrace is a fabulous addition to the house that offers a front row seat to the changing seasons and the phases of the day into night.

The garden can offer practical as well as picturesque, with ample parking and a generous, detached, double garage as well as a mini greenhouse.

The peaceful grounds and the much-loved home in this elevated position above Mitchel Troy Common are constantly accompanied by the mesmerising, panoramic view that sweeps across the Monmouthshire landscape, over the treetops and pretty patchwork of fields, to the peaks of the Black Mountains that hug the horizon adding to the uniqueness of Brookhill House.
