Occupying superlative position in the grounds of the historic Buckland Hall Estate, Pentre Melyn Cottage is a superb semi-detached period cottage offering a wealth of charm and character. The property sits in the heart of the Usk Valley near the thriving villages of Bwlch and Talybont, with forestry to the rear and enjoys wonderful views across the Breacon Beacons National Park. The property has been substantially improved by the current owners who have complemented the numerous period features that include exposed beams and quarry floor tiles with bespoke details of their own. The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout. The ground floor comprises a 24’ lounge/diner with original inglenook fireplace and bread oven, a modern fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room and downstairs utility/WC. Also on the ground floor is a large guest bedroom with en-suite shower facilities and a recently added oak framed sun room with under floor heating. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and a well-presented family bathroom. One particularly exciting aspect of the property is the two-storey timber framed workshop/studio that has been erected by the owners. This comprises a 26’ main workshop area with double timber doors, a WC and kitchenette with separate entrance. Upstairs there is a large studio/office space into the eaves with spectacular views across the Buckland Hall Estate and beyond. The workshop/studio further benefits from a rear access gate with a paved area leading to the double timber doors. The property is accessed via a gravel driveway that leads to the primary parking area with space for up to three cars alongside the front garden. A further feature of this property is the delightful gardens that run to the side and rear offering a wealth of aspects to enjoy. Notable features include the pond with duck house, the productive vegetable garden (plus fruit trees and greenhouse), the ornamental herb garden, hot tub positioned under an attractive oak pergola. All these elements enjoy one thing in common; spectacular views of this exquisite part of the Welsh countryside. It should be noted that its location on the estate allows the residents of this former under-gardener’s cottage the rights to access given routes within Buckland Hall’s grounds. The village of Bwlch is nearby and can be accessed via a forestry track, whilst Talybont-on-Usk is also within walking distance. Both these vibrant communities enjoy a range of pubs, and convenience stores, with the sought after market towns of Crickhowell (6 miles) and Abergavenny (11 miles) being close by.
