A charming double fronted, detached, period property located in the popular village community of Gilwern, near Abergavenny within the Brecon Beacons National Park. Available on the market for the first time in 30 years, ‘Athrofa’ was built in the 1820’s as the residence for the Headmaster of Gilwern School. It has been lovingly maintained and extended by the current owners to create a three bedroom home of warmth and character that offers generous accommodation throughout. The ground floor comprises of a welcoming entrance hall that leads to the lounge and formal dining room, while to the rear there is a modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room and snug. The owners have further augmented the ground floor with the addition of an impressive garden room, utility room and shower room. Upstairs there is a large main bedroom with separate office/ante room with partially glazed wooden panelling overlooking the landing, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property enjoys an enviable garden set behind high stone walls to the front and offering pleasing views across the Usk Valley towards the Sugarloaf Mountain. The main garden comprises a substantial area of lawn with borders that have been extensively planted with flowers and shrubs, a large patio area and a seating area to the rear from which to survey the vista. There is a further patio on the other side of the house with a separate entrance. The property also benefits from a single garage behind which is an extensive storage area open to the garden but under cover. Of particular note is a room above the garage accessed via stone steps from the garden. This has undoubted potential for conversion as a studio/hobby space and would enjoy a wonderful aspect across the valley. In summary, ‘Athrofa’ is a delightful period home of real character charm that further benefits from a sought after village location, within easy reach of nearby Abergavenny and Crickhowell.
