Full Details:

Brecon Beacons National Park: Detached Georgian-style Grade II Listed former Farmhouse, plus DETACHED BARN ANNEXE. Spacious, modernised Farmhouse retaining traditional features including sash windows, high ceilings and wooden floors. Located between the Mon-Brecon canal path and Route 46 National cycle path, and the Blorenge and Skirrid Mountains. Full residential Planning Consents for barn conversion and addition of car port parking and for house extension if desired.

LOCATION Located within the Brecon Beacons National Park authority area, between the picturesque Mon-Brecon canal path and the Route 46 national cycle path with superb walks and outdoors activity access. Waitrose just 1.5 miles away. Abergavenny main train station (Cardiff-Manchester high speed line) 3 miles. Excellent schools at Abergavenny, Crickhowell (5 miles) and Monmouth (19 miles) including Harberdashers private preparatory and secondary schools, all served by school bus services from the village.

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."
