Pontgaer is a superb barn conversion occupying a spectacular rural position on the edge of the village of Cwmdu, in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is a location that enjoys truly breathtaking views; a quintessential Black Mountains vista of farmland and mountains. It is also located a short drive from the wide ranging amenities, independent retail and hostelries of the hugely popular town of Crickhowell. At over 3,000 square feet, the property affords exceptionally broad accommodation throughout particularly on the ground floor which offers a vast amount of space and an array of social areas to enjoy. In summary the accommodation comprise a superb 27’ lounge with two sets of French doors opening onto the garden, a further sitting room including a feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove. In addition, there is a 17’ formal dining room and large kitchen/breakfast room with extensive storage and workspace. Between the dining and sitting room is an impressive reception hall with stairs up that enjoys floor to ceiling glazed doors and windows in a vaulted fashion allowing light to stream into the property from front to back. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a separate utility room with direct access to the large double garage, and a guest WC. It should be noted that planning has been granted for the addition of an oak framed garden room to the front, designed to maximise the enjoyment of the superlative views that surround the property. Above the reception hall on the first floor there is spectacular landing/seating area which serves as an ideal vantage point to appreciate Pontgaer’s exceptional position. In many ways this area serves as the heart of the house, summing up everything that makes the property so attractive; breathtaking scenery, enjoyed from surroundings that are both homely and hugely impressive. The landing leads to the master suite with dressing room and en-suite shower room. In addition, there are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property is accessed via a gravelled driveway providing parking for several cars and with an attractive area of garden to the side largely laid to lawn. A small stream runs through at the edge of the garden and there is a bespoke timber summer house on its bank to enjoy the soothing sounds of the water’s flow and as a further ideal place to enjoy the glorious view. The rear walled garden has a large patio seating area that can be accessed from the lounge and a substantial area of lawn that forms the majority of the remaining garden, part of which has been fenced off for chickens. It is liberally planted with a number of shrubs and trees, and has the remains of a well that has been filled to create a garden feature. There is also the added benefit of a separate office/den accessed at the rear of the garden with mezzanine area above that has acted as remote guest accommodation or teenage retreat in recent times. For those purchasers with home working requirements it should be noted that exceptional broadband speeds are available at the property with a guaranteed fibre service available of a minimum of 450MB, increasing to potentially 900MB. In summary, Pontgaer is an exceptional and enviable home of real character in a location that enjoys the very best that the Brecon Beacons National Park has to offer.
