This gorgeous property created from the original Brooks’ farm buildings in 2006 offers the enduring appeal of a lovely stone farmhouse with iconic traditional courtyard. Fully orientated to afford complete privacy, it basks in stunning views over own paddocks out to sweeping vistas of softly undulating open country. Beyond a beautiful family home exciting potential is offered by the indefinite planning consent (preliminary work having commenced) for either multigenerational living in a self-contained Annexe or for income from a Holiday Let. An idyllic rural property further offering an ideal equestrian holding with house and gardens overlooking the paddocks.
Revelling in captivating views across the beautiful Golden Valley nestled in the lee of the Black Mountains, Brooks Farm is arrived at by a long private driveway winding past a new barn conversion and around the old farmhouse. Well located mid way between the city of Hereford (12 miles) and the market town of Abergavenny, the village of Pontrilas itself is less than 2 miles. Picturesque Ewyas Harold a mere mile further offers an unexpected array of amenities including; local shop with post office, Ofsted “Good” primary school, GP, dentist, 2 butchers, 2 pubs and a vibrant community hall with sport facilities supporting active football and cricket teams. The area increasingly draws visitors keen to experience walking the ancient Offa Dyke’s trail, hiking in the Brecon Beacon National Park or attending the international Literary Festival 20 miles away in the famed book town of Hay-On-Wye. While Monmouth with its excellent independent Haberdasher’s schools and connectivity to the wider world via Ross-On-Wye and its M50 junction are both only 15 miles, meaning Birmingham Airport is only 1hr 30 mins.
