Llanvihangel Crucorney, Abergavenny

£875,000

Twr Mihangel offers a truly unique opportunity to purchase a sympathetically renovated, luxurious and impressive Grade II listed detached 5-bedroomed period house, situated on the edge of the medieval village of Llanfihangel Crucornau, Abergavenny within the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The main house, which was built in the 15th century and set in approximately 1.5 acres of attractive mature landscaped gardens, has recently been extensively refurbished to create an incredible balance of modern living facilities, whilst retaining all its original historical and architectural splendour, including hand-carved oak beams, imposing stone fireplaces, solid oak external doors and oak-framed leaded-light windows throughout. The dwelling also includes a lucrative business opportunity of an attached and imposing Elizabethan 2-storey octagonal and stone-castellated tower, which has operated as a highly successful Romantic Retreat holiday let business by the present owners for over 10 years - and - most notably, it recently featured in The Sunday Times as one of the top three romantic retreat holiday lets in the UK. There is also a separate detached 3-bay, stone-built, 2-storey Stables block within the grounds, which would be suitable for easy conversion to an additional holiday let or commercial/business unit, with the potential to generate further income - subject, of course, to planning consent. Plans available to view. The dwelling also uniquely benefits from free mains water supply and main sewerage services - through a historic covenant - ad infinitum. New owners will have the option of acquiring/purchasing 'Lordship and Ladyship of the Manor' titles, by separate negotiation. The village of Llanfihangel Crucornau is situated on a level and fertile plain at the foothills of the Black Mountains and is conveniently situated adjacent to the A465 major route, with excellent road links to the M4 and, M50/M5. The nearest rail station is only 5 minutes away with easy and hourly connections to Newport, Cardiff, London and beyond. The historically renowned Skirrid Mountain Inn, being the oldest and reputedly the most haunted Inn in Wales, is 200 yards from the house, as are the local Church, the local Shop and Garage. There are also a number of award-winning restaurants in the area. The extensive and splendid mountain ranges and Offas Dyke which are all situated close by serve to attract thousands of tourists, walkers and cyclists to the village and surrounding areas. The market town of Abergavenny is 5miles away, Hay-on-Wye, 12 miles and Hereford City 18miles. There are two superb golf courses within 5 miles and the Celtic Manor Resort (2010 Ryder Cup venue) is just a 30 minute drive away. Internally, the double-entranced hall offers a welcoming introduction to the home, with substantial period oak doors, flagstone flooring and oak beams, leading to three spacious reception and other associated rooms on the Ground Floor.
