Carwen is a large country house in an idyllic setting approached via a country lane on the outskirts of the village of Llangarron. Set amidst the rolling countryside of South Herefordshire it is a place of peace and tranquillity yet within an easy commute of the A40 and the major road network.
The original part of the house dates back to the 1840s and has been renovated and extended over a period time and is now a large family home, which covers 3 floors.
You enter Carwen into the spacious hallway which has the staircase to the first floor to the left side, leading to an attractive part-galleried landing. The hallway offers access to the ground floor cloakroom and utility room, which is well proportioned and houses the boiler, washing machine and tumble dryer.
From the hallway, you then enter the smaller sitting room, which is warm and inviting and has a lovely open fireplace, perfect for sitting and relaxing after a hard day at work, while taking in the views to the front of the property.
The generous sitting/dining room is at the rear of the property, where the sun just floods in. There are patio doors here leading to the elevated hardstanding area which has been put in place in readiness for the erection of a conservatory which runs moreorless the whole length of the back of the house. Once erected, due to its outstanding position, this could well become the hub of the house! From here you can access the kitchen via a charming stable door.
The immaculate kitchen is well fitted with classic "shaker" style units and solid oak worktops which maintain the light, bright look throughout the house. Leading off the kitchen is the porch/boot room; ideal for storage or cleaning the kids or the dog prior to entry to the main house!
On the first floor are the family bathroom and three bedrooms, one being the main with a really good sized en-suite.
The stairs at this end of the property then lead up to the second floor where two further large double bedrooms are located, offering stunning views to both front and rear aspects.
Outside there is 1 Hectare of land, currently used as paddocks with stabling for 2-3 horses. The garden is bordered by hedging surrounded by the beautiful rolling countryside.
Located to the side of the property is the hardstanding with the planning permission in place and at the front of the property is a gravelled area with parking for two to three vehicles.
IN SUMMARY (Agents opinion)
Carwen offers a tremendous opportunity for living the good life in an idyllic location. If you open the doors and windows all you can hear are the sounds of the birds tweeting and the nearby ducks. Ideal for total relaxation! You can feel the stress melting away as you walk through the door. Yet, in only a few minutes you can be out of the village and on the road to Ross, Hereford or Monmouth. We really like the position, close to the village yet still offering far reaching rural views. We would certainly recommend a viewing.
Situated on the edge of Llangarron village, the location of the property could suit many buyers, giving access to the church, village hall and amenities.
