Overlooking the village of Pandy, with views towards the Skirrid and Sugarloaf Mountains, this hidden gem of a cottage has been vastly improved to provide a retreat for the discerning buyer who yearns for peace and quiet.
The cottage has been extended and restored to a high standard, with underfloor heating in the main living room and upstairs bathroom, whilst still retaining period features such as the inglenook fireplace with cast iron oven and bread ovens, stone spiral staircase, exposed oak beams and white limewashed stone walls.
Entering the property, you step into the kitchen/living room with stone fireplace, underfloor heating and the connections ready to fit the kitchen you desire. The rear and side extensions include a utility room/pantry with Velux window, downstairs shower room and another reception room/downstairs bedroom with an external door.
The stone staircase with sensored lighting leads to the landing with doors off to two bedrooms and a modern bathroom with separate shower. The second bedroom has a Juliette balcony that has the potential for a balcony or granary steps to be built, subject to necessary planning consent.
Outside, a gated, stone driveway and hedge borders provide further privacy. Stone steps and a path lead to the top of the garden where there are apple trees, and the studio/office, which enjoys superb countryside and mountain views. The studio has its own shower room and is perfect if you want an office with a view or have friends and family coming to stay.
Located on a quiet lane on the edge of the Black Mountains, which forms the Eastern side of the Brecon Beacons, the area is popular with walkers, cyclists and hang gliders as countryside walks and the Offa’s Dyke footpath is on your doorstep. The villages of Pandy and Llanvihangel Crucorney are under two miles distant and boast a primary school, village hall, shop and garage/petrol station, as well as several pubs, including The Skirrid Inn, which is reputed to be Wales’ oldest inn.
The historic market town of Abergavenny is located six miles away and has a range of independent shops, supermarkets, a theatre, cinema, general hospital, primary and secondary schools and a mainline train station.
