Enjoying a superlative position, perched on the hillside on the rural fringe of Crickhowell, “Windwhistle” is an impressive, four bedroom detached residence with attached one bedroom annexe. It offers beautifully presented and generous accommodation throughout and boasts spectacular views across the town and the wider Usk Valley. Substantially improved and extended by the current owners, the original house was built in 1947 and has a number of features of the period, including herringbone block flooring running throughout the downstairs. The ground floor accommodation comprises a bright and welcoming entrance hall, a 17’ lounge, including a wood burning stove, and separate dining room with French doors out to the terrace. In addition, there is a kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility area, and downstairs WC. Upstairs, there is an airy landing which leads to the superb 17’ master bedroom with four piece en-suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms. These front facing bedrooms make the very most of the breathtaking southerly views, and are complemented by a single bedroom and stylish family bathroom. Attached to the main house is a two storey annexe, which adds huge flexibility to the overall accommodation, whether used for guests, multi-generational living or as a potential income stream. Benefiting from independent access, on the ground floor it comprises an entrance hall, modern fitted kitchen, sunny lounge with French doors and a WC. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and full bathroom. It should be noted that the annexe shares services with the main house, but is banded separately for Council Tax (Band A). The property is accessed via a driveway that sweeps around to the rear providing parking for 4/5 cars and leads to the attached single garage. The wonderful garden is largely to the front of the property and is dominated by the spectacular vista; a bird’s eye view of what makes the Brecon Beacons National Park such a sought-after location. The garden itself has been beautifully redesigned and landscaped with a dizzying array of well stocked beds and borders. To the fore there is a large terrace from which to enjoy the views, an ideal entertaining area which is augmented by a further patio to the side of the property. Steps lead down to a lower section, criss-crossed with paths that weave between the meticulously planted flower beds. At the end of the garden there is a raised nature pond, finished in stone, a substantial area of lawn and a vegetable patch. In summary, “Windwhistle” is a wonderful home, offering an unrivaled blend of accommodation, aspect and a prime location, that further benefits from no onward chain.
