Description

**Video Tour Available** A fine example of an 18th century townhouse set in magnificent gardens with superb views. Three reception rooms, kitchen/family room, conservatory, five principal bedrooms, attic room, domestic offices, cellar. Photograph shows rear of property.
It is with the greatest of pleasure that we are able to offer for sale on the open market one of the most important houses in Crickhowell and the surrounding areas. Dan Y Castell is a stunning example of a fine Georgian townhouse dating from around 1734 but with some obvious much earlier origins, and has subsequently been listed as a Grade II residence. As would be expected of a house of this age, it has seen some extensive re-modelling over the centuries and in the latter period, first in the 1930's and lastly by the current owner in 2008. Photograph shows rear of property.

The property currently enjoys the following accommodation, three reception rooms, re-modelled kitchen/breakfast/family room with bespoke units, conservatory, five principal bedrooms, attic rooms, domestic offices and cellar, all set in a magnificent private garden with stunning southerly views.

To complement the house, its location is equally important as it occupies the southern side of the junction of Bridge Street, Castle Road and High Street and it is within yards of the centre of town. Crickhowell was voted the best High Street in Britain in 2018 with its wide variety of independent shops, restaurants and public houses whilst St Edmund's Church, the Castle and the cricket and tennis clubs are a short stroll away. In addition, both the primary and high schools are within a few hundred yards walking distance of the property, both being well regarded.

As already mentioned, the property enjoys some superb views of the surrounding countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area renowned for its wide range of outdoor pursuits including riding, fishing, hill walking, paragliding, cycling and bird watching.

As well as the facilities offered within the town, road links give access to the neighbouring town of Abergavenny (approximately 7 miles away) which has a mainline railway station, general hospital and Waitrose supermarket.

This property is truly one of the great houses of the Crickhowell area and discerning purchasers will not be disappointed arranging a personal inspection in order to fully appreciate all that it has to offer.

OUTSIDE
The property is set back from Castle Road by a small forecourt which is retained by a low stone wall surmounted by period metal railings. This area has been principally laid to flagstones. Vehicular access can be gained to the rear garden via the automatic gates with a murmuration of starlings depicted upon them which are individually designed to create a truly spectacular entrance, which in turn leads to the tarmac parking area and the workshop. The gardens and grounds of this property are equally important including a wide range of mature and specimen trees including a unique "orchestra" of mature yew trees which depict a harp, piano etc. Adjoining the house itself are various flagstone patios including one adjoining the conservatory which is inset with a raised fishpond. The grounds are both formal and semi-formal, they have been principally laid to lawn and include a variety of mature shrubs and trees including a specimen magnolia and a copper beech which has a tree preservation order. There are numerous well stocked beds, borders containing a variety of plants and shrubs, all screened by a mature hedge and stone wall. The garden is south facing, from the house and gardens some spectacular views over the surrounding countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park and over the river bridge may be enjoyed.
