LOCATION Graigwith Farm enjoys a picturesque rural setting with views over its own stunning grounds and land. It is approximately 1.7 miles to the west of the village of Llangybi and is within easy reach of the popular and historic shopping town of Usk (about 4.5 miles to the north-east) while the larger town of Monmouth with its excellent private schools is about 17.4 miles to the north-east. The city of Newport is only about 10 miles to the south with regular fast trains to London Paddington (average journey time 2 hours 11 minutes with the fastest being 1 hour 45 minutes) and the M4 motorway providing quick access to the capital city of Cardiff (about 23.4 miles from the property) the Severn Bridge to the east, Bristol (about 34.8 miles to south-east) and beyond.

DESCRIPTION Graigwith Farm is a stunning, hidden gem. This ring-fenced Monmouthshire farm is set in beautiful countryside and yet is convenient to popular local towns, the M4 and links to London, Bristol and the Midlands. The property comprises a substantial and historic Grade II Listed farmhouse believed to date from the 16th/17th century with later 18th century influences. Recently it has been sympathetically restored with rewiring, central heating and the addition of modern facilities, while retaining original character features. Across the courtyard are two generous detached cottages that have been tastefully converted from two old stone barns. These have been used as holiday let cottages and for family & friends. The farm has a number of general-purpose modern outbuildings set around a dedicated yard and the house is set in delightful landscaped grounds and gardens. In all, the farm extends to about 261 acres (stms - subject to measured survey) with large areas of established woodland and productive pastureland.

ACCOMMODATION MAIN HOUSE GROUND FLOOR The main front entrance door leads into a reception hall with doors leading off to the main reception rooms. On the immediate right is an entrance to the cellar and a useful private study while opposite is the elegant drawing room with beamed ceiling and open fireplace providing a warm focal point. A door on the left leads through to the dining room with flagstone floor, beamed ceiling and an impressive inglenook fireplace. Beyond is the kitchen breakfast room with bespoke fitted units, beamed ceiling, flag stone floor and an Aga Range taking centre stage. A large utility room with cloakroom and integral garage area complete the ground floor.

FIRST FLOOR A beautiful spiral Oak staircase rises-up in a tower from the dining room to the first-floor accommodation that includes a master bedroom, dressing room and two further bedrooms; all are en suite. There is original panelling in places and the first floor has beams throughout and views across the gardens.

SECOND FLOOR The spiral Oak stairs continue to the second-floor accommodation that provide a further 2 bedrooms (1 en suite). There is an additional Eighteenth century staircase from the master suite to the second floor.

TWO COTTAGES Across the courtyard are two detached cottages that have been tastefully converted from two old original stone barns. Both cottages offer generous accommodation space with open plan kitchen - living rooms. One cottage offers 3 bedrooms (2 bathrooms; 1 en-suite) while the other offers a large ground floor bed sitting room, utility room and adjacent shower room and a further 3 bedrooms (2 bathrooms; 1 en-suite) on the first floor.

EXTERNALLY The main house, surrounded on 3 sides by a ha-ha, sits beautifully in landscaped gardens and grounds to the front and rear with gravelled walkways, lawned areas, pond, part walled garden, mature trees, fruit trees, bushes, shrubs and flower beds.

THE OUTBUILDINGS The farmyard and corral areas include a number of useful modern general-purpose outbuildings that are currently used for machinery and storage purposes and for housing livestock. The main barn is a 6-bay open span enclosed building that has a dedicated separate workshop area, a lock up and separate shower room and lavatory. The rear doors open up to the corral stock handling area. A separate timber stable block is situated to the side while below this is a modern 3 bay open fronted outbuilding with a concrete yard to the fore. A further smaller storage shelter is situated off the driveway near the part walled garden. There is a further old stone barn that is located to the southwest of the farm (labelled Old House on the land plan) that may have the potential for conversion to other uses subject to planning consent.

THE LAND The farm includes an interesting mix of productive pastureland and established ancient deciduous woodland with access tracks and open glades, which provide potential for a diversity of uses including livestock, riding, sporting use, amenity use and/or commercial timber. The pasture, woodlands and streams have been sensitively managed to enhance the natural habitats. In all, the farm extends to about 261 acres (stms).
