Summary

An immaculately presented detached period house occupying stunning setting overlooking Clydach. Renovated to a high standard two reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, extensive loft room with ensuite.

Description

It is with the utmost pleasure that we are able to have the opportunity to offer for sale this very remarkable property. Hidden away in an idyllic setting overlooking the river Clydach and with its fabulous rock formations, waterfalls and plunge pools Troedyrhiw House truly occupies a stunning location and, often, other than birdsong the only sound is the gurgling of the river as it flows by.

Built in the early nineteenth century the house has been the subject of extensive alteration and renovation over the years to provide an immaculately presented family home, with much charm and character yet affording modern trappings such as oil fired central heating system, double glazing, bespoke fitted kitchen, bathrooms. Equally attention has been lavished on the garden which is set up to maximise its location and proximity to the river though there is still opportunity for the purchaser to incorporate their own ideas.

The village of Clydach nestles within the Clydach Gorge an area recognised of Special Scientific Interest and rich flora and fauna as well as historical archaeological interest being within the boundaries of Blaenavon World Heritage Site namely because of the early iron works that were located in the valley. Its pub, community hall and football pitch are only yards away from Troedyrhiw House whilst the neighbouring bustling village of Gilwern is only just over a mile distant with a range of shops, village school etc, and the neighbouring towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell are just five miles away, the former enjoying both mainline railway station and general hospital and in addition a Waitrose supermarket and Asda superstore.

One can never fully describe the tranquillity of this location and the quality of the property itself and we would urge prospective purchasers to seek an early inspection in order to fully appreciate all that Troedyrhiw House has to offer.

OUTSIDE
As already stated the gardens and ground are a special feature of Troedyrhiw House. Approached via a coloured aggregate drive which has extensive parking. The front garden is approached through a rustic arch with flagstone and aggregate path flanked by mature shrubs and trees and raised beds which in turn leads to the extensive flagstone patio which adjoins the house itself and over looks the river.  The garden also includes an insulated STUDIO 11' x 7'6" with power and water supply as well as underfloor heating. Mention should also be made of the menagerie of concrete animals which are found within the garden and which have been a talking point within the village for decades.

At the rear of the house is a further coloured aggregate patio and timber decking which again overlooks the river and waterfall with steps leading down to the waters edge and also to a bridge which crosses over the river to the woodland on the opposite bank.

Steps lead in turn from the patio to the extensive wild garden with its variety of mature trees and to the rock pools and waterfalls beyond and in turn on the trail which leads up through the beech woods themselves.

TENURE
We are advised FREEHOLD, to be verified by your solicitor.
