Brockwells Cottage is nestled on the outskirts of the village of Caerwent, with beautiful views across open countryside and offers a spacious, extended detached dwelling with the potential of multi-generational living.
Located at the top of an elevated concealed driveway the cottage, which is thought in parts to date back to 150 years, is situated within a sizable, secluded plot.
The accommodation offers flexibility throughout, especially for those wishing to work from home, but is currently utilised as a five bedroom home, which has been refurbished by the current owners during the last 11 years.
The village of Caerwent was founded by the Romans as the market town of Venta Silurum and was considered to be an important settlement, the Roman ruins are some of the best preserved in Europe. The village has an active community and offers facilities including a post office/village shop, public house, garage and recreation hall/fields. The excellent road links it offers provides easy access to the larger surrounding towns of Chepstow and Newport City, both of which have an access to the M4 motorway network.
Looking in more detail, from the front entrance door there are two reception halls, both give access to all ground floor rooms. The study/family room, located to the rear of the property, offers flexibility and has dual aspect windows. There is a useful cloakroom and also access to the sizable master bedroom. This spacious room has far reaching countryside views and an open fireplace, plus the added benefit of an en-suite, fitted with a three piece suite to include a bath.
The living room is located within the original cottage, the main focal feature of this room is the wood burning stove, ideal for cosy nights in, dual aspect windows to both front and rear elevations provide garden views and door gives access to the kitchen.
The spacious kitchen has been refitted and now offers a great space to congregate with family and friends, having ample space for a dining table and an extensive range of base and wall units, complimented by granite work surfaces. Integrated appliances include a single oven and 5 ring induction hob. Also space for American style fridge freezer. The window again provides beautiful garden and countryside views.
Off the rear lobby there is a useful utility room and a boiler/boot room, plus the recent addition of a conservatory, ideally situated to admire the views across Caerwent village and beyond.
To the first floor, a spacious landing gives access to four further bedrooms, three of which will accommodate a double bed and bedroom five would also make an ideal additional study. The family bathroom is fitted with a four piece suite to include a bath with separate shower cubicle.Outside
- Then stepping outside, the gardens should be viewed to be fully appreciated. Each garden area provides something different. There is a sizable sun terrace and lawned area to the rear elevation, both with far reaching views and bounded by attractive stone walling and raised, planted borders. A small orchard to the front elevation, with a selection of apple trees. An all-important vegetable plot, the fertile soil here providing four very productive fig trees and the large lower tier garden area, again with a selection of fruit trees to include damson, plum and quince.
There is an abundance of wildlife, the current owner tells of a resident local family of Buzzards, and swallows that herald the arrival of spring when they return to their nesting site made years ago in the garage rafters, along with roving hedgehogs among the gardens and a magnificent marauding sparrow hawk
The concealed driveway gives access to ample parking, a double garage and a useful storage out building.
There is a parcel of land running along the rear of the boundary that is not currently shown on the land registry plans. The garages and store sit on this land. We are happy to discuss the course of action proposed by the vendors solicitors to address this. There is also a covenant in place from the previous vendor that should the lower parcel of land be sold off separately in the next 14 years, they would be entitled to 50% of any additional profit.
