Historic home set in Beacons national park; Grade II listed Millbrook has large gardens including a coach house and is close to the famous Skirrid Inn.

SET in approximately a quarter of an acre, Millbrook is a substantial country home nestling in the quaint village of Llanvihangel Crucorney near Abergavenny and within the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park.

With fabulous walking and riding opportunities on the doorstep, the delightful property offers plenty of charm and dates back to the 1300s. It is a property of historic significance with an abundance of features from the 17th century additions but it also offers modern day comfort.

The Grade II listed property is beautifully appointed throughout its four bedrooms. It has two shower rooms, a family bathroom and three reception rooms.

Millbrook is approached via a wide driveway framed by low stone walls, flowering plants and shrubs, the property sits in delightful and very private country gardens.

The front door is oak with a Tudor arch, opening into a welcoming entrance hall with flagstone flooring. The impressive drawing room has magnificent ceiling beams, while there is also a welcoming sitting room and a separate study.

The kitchen and breakfast room boast a central Aga oven and walk-in pantry cupboard, with a utility room and separate cloakroom also on the ground floor.

A solid oak staircase leads to the bedrooms, although the main bedroom can be independently accessed from a stone staircase, concealed within the drawing room.

It has a modern en suite shower room and stairs leading to a large attic room currently used as a dressing room, which has great potential. The three other bedrooms share a shower room and bathroom with claw-foot rolltop bath while the fourth bedroom includes a beautiful mezzanine study area.

The grounds also include a stone coach house while Llanvihangel Crucorney itself is said to have the oldest public house in England and Wales, The Skirrid Inn, making this a very appealing property within a very attractive area.

Millbrook is on the market for pounds 675,000. Viewing of Millbrook is strictly by appointment with Savills. Call 029 2036 8930 or see www.savills.co.uk for more information
