An impressive Victorian detached house, located on a sought-after street on the western-side of Abergavenny, that requires modernisation and will be a spacious family home for any lucky purchaser.
This Victorian stone-fronted house has been in the same ownership since the 1950s and has been split into four apartments in the past, but would now be best utilised as a substantial family home, once modernised. Built in the 1870s, this spacious residence retains many character features such as high ceilings with mouldings, sash windows, tile floor, exposed floorboards, decorative paneling and a cellar.
The house comprises of five reception rooms, kitchen with oil AGA, utility room and modern wet room with underfloor heating, as well as a cellar; perfect for a growing wine collection. Over the first and second floors are nine bedrooms, a bathroom, two shower rooms and eaves storage on the top floor. There are metal fire escapes to the first and second floors and the roof was replaced 10 years ago.
Outside, there is plenty of driveway parking to the front, with access both sides to the back. The delightful rear garden has been well-tended, with a lawn that enjoys views towards the Blorenge Mountain, a range of flower beds well-stocked with colourful flowering plants, together with shrubs and apple trees. There is also a green house and two storage sheds that adjoin the rear of the house.
Situated on a quiet street on the popular western-side of Abergavenny, the property is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Cantref Primary School and is less than one mile from the town centre.
