Located in the heart of the Monmouthshire town of Usk is this exceptional detached residence enjoying superb views towards The Priory Church of St Mary and neighbouring countryside.
Situated in the heart of Usk and being one of the most recognisable properties in the town's history, Greyhound House has been part of the town since the 17th Century. Lovingly converted from a local inn serving wonderful home cooked food and a variety of ales to a stunning residence in recent years, this unique property would make an ideal home whilst retaining immense character and charm from a bygone era.
Usk boasts superb artisan shops and eateries to compliment it's vibrant local community. Further afield are the larger towns of Monmouth and Abergavenny for a wider range of shopping and restaurants. For those wishing to commute, major road links and train lines give relatively easy access to bigger local cities such as Cardiff, Newport, Bristol and The Midlands.
On entering this wonderful residence, one is truly struck by the character and charm of this former local Inn. With a history dating back to the 17th Century it genuinely represents a timepiece of history in Usk. Many local residents will remember taking the steps through the front door to sample the food or ale on offer. Now, here it stands as a substantial home with entrance porch having classic slate flooring before opening into the double fronted main reception room. Previously the main room of the Greyhound Inn this generous room is currently used as two separate areas, each boasting feature fireplaces, one of which houses a multi-fuel burner set upon large slate hearth with ornate timber mantle over.

A split level room that enjoys a breakfast area to one end with breakfast bar and ample seating space plus a lower level that boasts integrated appliances alongside dual Belfast sink units.
