Description - Located in the idyllic Angiddy Valley while just a short distance from Tintern and the River Wye, this beautifully refurbished Scandinavian style home was built in the 1980's and commands an elevated position enjoying views of the surrounding countryside. Named by the original owners, who as the story goes were avid climbers, Tengboche is named after the midway station on the trail to the base camp of Mount Everest where panoramic views can be enjoyed over the Himalayas.
The current owners have transformed the property over the last decade into a modern and contemporary home, which has been finished to an exacting standard. There are four double bedrooms, a stylish kitchen breakfast room, a beautiful en-suite shower room, a useful cloakroom with shower and an ornate family bathroom. Outside there is ample parking to the fore leading to a larger than average garage, with balconies and sun terraces to be enjoyed to the rear along with a level garden with composite decked areas, ideal for entertaining friends and family.
The property sits within an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and designated Conservation Area with Tintern probably best known for its Abbey, the remains of which dominate the skyline. The Cistercian Abbey was founded by Walter De Clare in 1131 during the reign of King Henry I. The area is home to an extensive network of local footpaths that link with two long distance paths - the Wye Valley Walk and Offa's Dyke Path, crossing the former wireworks railway bridge onto the English side of the river you will find several clearly marked paths, the most notable of with is the one to the 'Devils' Pulpit. Chepstow offers a further range of facilities as well as good access to the A48, M48 and M4 motorway networks bringing Newport, Cardiff and Bristol within easy commuting distance.
Upon entering the property, you are greeted by a generous entrance hall that leads past a large shower room, perfectly placed for freshening up after long walks in the nearby woodland. The majority of the accommodation is arranged over this floor meaning you always get to enjoy the elevated position and surrounding scenery, with three double bedrooms, a family bathroom, a stunning high end kitchen breakfast room with a separate utility room. From the kitchen steps lead down past the breakfast bar to the dining area which is then open plan to the living area which boasts not only a log burning stove and a beautiful glass paned galleried landing but also a balcony, perfect for sitting and taking in the valley views. There are several large windows across the rear of the property, typical of a Scandinavian design which floods the whole property with light and again takes full advantage of the surrounding views. The largest of the bedrooms, which is currently used as a home office, also boast sliding doors leading onto its own private composite decked balcony, which the owners previously used as their master bedroom.
Both the showpiece and centrepiece of this immaculate home is the bespoke oak staircase that passes through the heart of the property. The oak Newel Posts and handrails encase the glass balustrades that circle down to a further reception area, which afford bi-folding doors leading out to a large decked area making this space ideal for entertaining. The current master suite is also on this floor and benefits from fitted wardrobes and doors again leading out onto the gardens plus a stunning recently refurbished ensuite showroom. The beauty in the design of the property is that the accommodation could easily be arranged so I could be used for multi-generational living.
Outside - To the fore there is a brick paved driveway providing parking for several vehicles which leads up to the larger than average garage with roller shutter door. There is access to all sides of the property with the right-hand access leading around to the private decked balcony which serves the largest of the bedrooms, meaning this could provide separate access should you wish to use this as separate accommodation. The opposite side access leads around to a private patio area which is ideal for alfresco dining with steps leading down to the large level gardens, a rare find in the Angiddy Valley. There are several seating areas to be enjoyed all of which boast views over the surrounding valley.
