Situation Grange Farm occupies a stunning and unique rural position, tucked away in beautiful Monmouthshire countryside with no near neighbours. The farm is secluded within a renowned farming region with the area offering a sought-after rural quality of life; fabulous peace and quiet, yet with modern conveniences nearby. Monmouth, the A449/A40, Abergavenny and Hereford (A465) are all within sensible driving distances. The A40 gives excellent access to the M50/M4/M48 motorway network and the commercial centres of South Wales, Bristol, and Birmingham.

Overview Grange Farm should appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers; from those looking for a residential or lifestyle farm with an attractive & well-presented house to equestrian buyers, commercial farmers and income seekers. This highly versatile farm is complemented by a range of traditional barns with extant planning consent, together with a good range of portal framed agricultural buildings. Positioned at the end of a 1½ mile no through, public road, with a private drive thereafter and separate access to the farm buildings and land, the whole property extends to some 81 acres of pastureland within a ring fenced block.

LOT 1 Lot 1 - Farmhouse & range of traditional barns in 6.40 Acres

* Grange Farmhouse is an impressive Grade II Listed house, described as a late Renaissance property dating from the early 18th century, with 19th century re workings; predominately of stone construction the house benefits from a pretty, classic façade adorned with sash windows. Adjacent to the house is a significant range of traditional farm buildings with planning consent for residential conversion, offering great potential for a variety of uses. The house and barns enjoy a uniquely private position, accessed via a private drive, and complemented by some attractive pasture land.

* The house was sympathetically renovated in 2016, major works including: re-roofing, replacement plumbing and electrics, restoration of windows, new boiler with zoned heating system, new bathrooms, fitted kitchen with new Rayburn range, a new entrance drive, a new water supply and a new drainage system.

LOT 1 Ctd. * The accommodation extends to 2,990 ft², arranged over three floors and comprises four large double bedrooms, two bathrooms, three reception rooms. A very useful cellar is accessed via an internal staircase and from the rear courtyard. This provides two rooms with excellent storage and a good utility space.

* Throughout the house there are many architectural details, enhanced by high ceilings. Period features include large sash windows with shutters, flagstone flooring in the kitchen, vaulted ceilings to second floor, exposed beams and period fireplaces.

The Traditional Barns (c. 3,366 ft²) A substantial range of traditional stone outbuildings lie west of and adjacent to the farmhouse. These buildings were granted planning and listed building consent for residential conversion in 2006. The ground works (installation of the drainage system) have been carried out, sufficient to be deemed to have started the development, planning has therefore been crystallised.

Barns - Planning Consent The consented plans create two, spacious, three bedroomed semi-detached dwellings, The Corn Barn (1,595 sq ft) and The Stables (1,093 sq ft). A third dwelling is created from The Cow House (678 sq ft), which will provide a two bedroom, single storey property, adjoining the farmhouse. These proposed dwellings have great scope for ancillary accommodation, or to provide income potential via rental or holiday homes. With planning already crystallised and unrestricted, development can be managed over a suitable timescale.
