This is a striking stone built property, believed to date back to the late Tudor period in the 16th or 17th Century.   The property is located in the village of Tintern, just moments away from the amenities but set apart in an elevated private position.
This double fronted property offers a wealth of original features to include, tiled floors, fireplaces and exposed beams.   It has a fabulous view across the river Wye and valley towards Tintern Abbey.    


IN SUMMARY (Agent's Opinion)
This is a great example of a period property which has been lovingly cared for and retains many original features.  In particular, the stone fireplace in the first reception room is particularly magnificent. There are also large wooden shutters to the main windows. The whole house has a feeling of prestige and character.    It would make a fine residence for a growing family or even a second home in the 'country' for anyone looking for a peaceful haven to have time away from a hectic City life. 
The scenery locally is fabulous and the village is beautiful and renowned as a tourist hotspot. This has provided the added benefit of giving the residents amenities of a coffee shop and gift shops on their doorstep. For nature lovers, woodland and riverside walks abound in the area.

TINTERN is a particularly scenic village curving around the beautiful River Wye with a backdrop of wooded hillsides. This village is made even more spectacular by the historic riverside Abbey Ruins and the old Abbey buildings including the Abbey Mill. This Mill is now converted into a gift shop and tea rooms. There are a small number of Hotels offering both accommodation and restaurant facilities, as well as several local Inns. There is a doctor’s surgery in the village. With little fishing boats moored on the river banks it is a truly delightful place to be.CHEPSTOW is an historic, walled, border town on the site of an ancient port. Chepstow Castle below the town has a spectacular setting on the cliffs above the River Wye. The town has a thriving shopping centre with all amenities. On the outskirts of the town is the Racecourse which has Conference Centre facilities. The design of the river bridge spanning the Wye has been credited to Rennie but was in fact designed by Rastrick of Bridgenorth. Both the rivers Wye and the Severn meet near Chepstow and two unique bridges span the wide expanse of water at the Severn estuary - a massive benefit for benefit for motorists using the M48 and M4 who otherwise would need to drive to Gloucester to cross.

MONMOUTH itself is a busy, thriving town with excellent shopping facilities including four supermarkets (M&S, Waitrose and Co-Op in the centre plus Lidl on the outskirts). There is a delightful period cinema. The excellent Leisure Centre has swimming pools, gymnasium, evening classes etc.  There is a wide range of eating and drinking venues from interesting coffee shops to French cuisine.  In the summer a week long free Music Festival is held each year, plus a Carnival.  

MOTORWAYS  The M4/M50/M5 are all reasonably close giving good access to major cities i.e. Birmingham, Bristol, Newport, Cardiff, Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Hereford all within approx 1.5 hours drive away.

RAIL NETWORKS  Available at Chepstow,  Hereford, Abergavenny or Newport.
