We enter through a wooden gate into a sizeable courtyard front garden bordered by high stone walling with pillared tops and intermittent slatted fencing.

The lovely courtyard is overlooked by the beautiful facade of this stone circa 1821 cottage.

We enter through a large stone pillared structured open entrance topped with solid wood beams.

This leads us to a few wide slabbed stone steps which take us to the doorway and on to the original flagstone floored entrance porch.

A second door opens to the superb size lounge and dining room separated centrally by an open staircase lined by vertical solid Welsh oak beams.

The dining area is a wide and open space with solid oak flooring and exposed stone fireplace with solid oak mantles.

The lounge has exposed stone walls with stone fireplace and a recently added cast iron burner to raised stone slab and solid oak flooring.

A doorway takes us to an inner lobby which goes to a kitchen and a superb size utility room giving an excellent opportunity for conversion to one very large kitchen.

Behind the central staircase in the main space is a drawbridge style pull chain wooden floor door which opens to reveal another staircase leading to a vast basement.

From a flagstone floored lobby we have a small UPVC door opening to the front garden.

Also from here are two doors leading to two larger than average basement spaces.

To the first floor, the landing has two exposed stone chimney breasts and more beam work in original solid Welsh oak.

Both bedrooms are a fantastic size and have vaulted ceilings with original crossover oak beams.

The bathroom is very unique with a hot tub style sunken Jacuzzi bath tub with feature lighting, double sinks inset to a bespoke solid oak unit using reclaimed oak from within the house, also a step in shower.

From the landing we are taken to a W/C and a superb size mid level conservatory which opens into the fantastic size rear garden.

The garden has pathways created from stones that were found on the land which we have been informed by the vendor would have originated from the stone masons once on this land and local area.

The property is on bottled gas and the general space is in need of updating.

The original character this property holds is enchanting and it is believed (not confirmed) that this beautiful cottage is one of the oldest inhabited properties in Pontypool.
