About the property

This stunning Grade II Listed property has been sympathetically renovated, extended & dressed by the present owners who have perfectly blended 19th century character with early 20th century industrialist styling. New Market Street is regarded by locals as one of the most attractive streets in Usk with its wide range of buildings some of which date back to before the 16th Century with many of them now listed for having architectural or historical importance. Built in 1851, it is said that this Victorian property stands on the site of what was once a derelict cottage which was demolished to build two large houses. Fast forward to 2015 and the current owners collected the keys to what was a characterless and run-down dwelling with many of the original features being either removed or blocked up. Over the last five years the owners, along with skilled local craftsmen, have restored many original features whilst uncovering impressive fireplaces and flagstone floors. However, the biggest and most unexpected discovery of all was an ancient well which is now proudly displayed as a showpiece & talking point in the dining area of the breath-taking rear extension. Leading out from the relaxed living room area the impressive extension has created an incredible area where the owners now spend most their time whether it been relaxing with the family sat around the fire or entertaining and cooking with friends. The bespoke handmade kitchen has been designed to accommodate a substantial island affording a breakfast bar with barstool seating which can be moved if required to provide extra seating for watching the big game or to create a cocktail bar for those big nights in. To the fore, the cosy yet ample sitting room has been designed to create an ideal space to escape the rest of the family with a log burning stove sitting under a walnut mantle. The first floor is occupied by three generous bedrooms and a family shower room with the second floor offering a magnificent principle suite which affords a dressing area, en-suite and four bespoke dormer double glazed windows. Other modern additions include underfloor heating throughout the majority of downstairs with the property also benefiting from an entire new heating system & roof which has been insulated making the property warm throughout. To the rear lies an enclosed and landscaped garden with a winding path leading past a level lawn lined with flower beds up to the multi-purpose garden room, ideal for those looking to work (or work out) at home. In the vendors' own words, "This house has been such an easy house to live in and it has been a proper family home. We loved being able to have the whole family around where we have enough space for everyone to join in cooking or if not, they can escape to the front sitting room for some peace and quiet."
