Werngochlyn Farmhouse provides an appealing semi-detached 5-bedroom farmhouse with additional converted attic space which could potentially provide additional accommodation. Profiting from spectacular views across the Monmouthshire countryside Werngochlyn Farmhouse is truly a special and well noted property within the area and one which offers such vast potential is rarely seen in the market. The farmhouse is Grade II listed.

Originally an additional reception room within the main body of the farmhouse, the bedsit, known as Werngochlyn Flat provides a useful addition to the property. It currently provides a useful rental income via a current tenancy however it would be extremely straight forward to reincorporate the flat to provide a substantial reception room within the main house. Vacant possession will be available to the flat at completion.

Werngochlyn Cottage

Werngochlyn Cottage provides a more modern living space with an appealing and naturally light filled dwelling. On the ground floor the accommodation provides a traditional yet modern kitchen with double doors directly to the terrace and garden as well as a walk-in pantry. The terrace is a real morning sun trap and offers a glorious spot for an alfresco breakfast, a morning coffee or similarly an evening barbeque. From the kitchen, the large living room benefits from doors to the garden but also a large, feature fireplace with a traditional log burning stove installed. This is truly the most appealing of rooms to relax within and perfect for a winter evening by the fire or summers days in the garden. There is also a ground floor cloakroom/ shower room as well a useful laundry/utility room/office.

The first floor offers three bedrooms. The first being the main bedroom, profiting from ample natural light and a small, suited bathroom as well as fitted wardrobes spanning the main wall offering ample hanging and storage space without encroaching into the room. The second and third bedrooms both provide lovely sleeping accommodation and also benefit from a family bathroom. The décor of
the Cottage is very bright, yet classical and appealing and the natural lighting really gives the cottage a welcoming and homely feeling throughout.

Werngochlyn Cottage looks out onto a lovely garden, mainly laid to lawn, with views reaching over the paddocks providing a delightful area to relax and digest the beautiful surroundings.

The cottages offer sought-after, self-contained, holiday accommodation within easy reach of Abergavenny and the Brecon Beacons and the numerous attractions the area offers for those who enjoy the outdoors but also the many venues within the area including food, sport and entertainment and several wedding venues. The location, accessibility and quality provide a very sought-after experience in comparison to many other local offerings.

Traditional Buildings

The main building, currently used as storage alongside the workings of the livery yard and farm offers a range of opportunities. The 17th Century building with timber double doors to the side elevations, arrow slit windows under a slate tile roof with the most excellent timber beams is in a good condition throughout. Specifically this main building above the yard offers tremendous potential to provide truly fabulous additional accommodation alongside the current holiday cottages or as an additional residence (subject to planning and listed building consents being obtained). The traditional building, once a large threshing barn dating probably from the 17th Century is Grade II listed but could deliver the most desirable wedding venue alongside the other buildings and holiday cottages (STPP). With a separate driveway to the main yard the building offers tremendous scope to be utilised in a variety of ways.

Equestrian Stabling & Land

Home to a recognised and respected livery yard the buildings, stables and schools lend themselves very well to being continued as a livery yard or as part of a more private equestrian enterprise. With a significant range of stables and an excellent indoor school the equestrian facilities add a real distinction to Werngochlyn and add expansive appeal to the diverse property package which is on offer. With stabling for 20 horses alongside a secure tack room, ample covered storage space for hay & feed as well as several ancillary stores and buildings. The vendor has recently installed 3 surfaced winter turnout areas which are extremely useful during the winter months.
