KEY PROPERTY FEATURES
This spacious, 4/5 bedroom, 4-storey home retains many period features in its sympathetic modernisation, and a rare opportunity for further development of both the House and the DETACHED BARN ANNEXE in the large grounds (full planning permission granted). A popular housing development has been built on the land around this former farmhouse, but the elevated vantage point in the large South-West facing gardens offers beautiful, timeless far-reaching views of the Blorenge and Skirrid mountains.
Derwen Deg (Fair Oak) House is described in its grade II listing as "listed for the special interest as one of the older houses in Govilon with well-preserved historic character. Said to have C17 origins but a late-Georgian remodelling gives the house its present overall external character."
