Llanfoist House

Large period Georgian house for sale Abergavenny

Large country mansion in extensive grounds

 

Llanfoist House, a large roomy Georgian house in Abergavenny, is now for sale.  Located on the outskirts of Abergavenny, but within easy distance of towns like Monmouth and Newport, this home is secluded and yet easily accessible with excellent road and rail links to other major centres.   It is a major part of a Georgian manor house in garden and grounds of  approximately six acres.  The garden is large and includes formal and informal planting, a potager kitchen garden, an orchard and paddocks with stabling and fodder storage.

We have lived in this wonderful house and loved it for more than 37 years and now is the time to find new custodians to care for it and live the quality of life that can be enjoyed in these beautiful surroundings and in a house that is generous in its proportions and in its spirit.  Our decision to create this comprehensive website is because a home like this deserves much more than a three page brochure and short description and numbers of bedrooms etc.  It is intended to show what there is to look forward to in living in a place like this and the kind of life style that is vital in this day and age when everything is too intense and hurried.

Over the years we have tried to create a home that is both comfortable and interesting – the rooms are a good size and the house itself is in very good condition.   It will appeal to those people who have a romantic nature, love the variety of features both in the house and in the garden.  People who have family and friends that they would like to share their life, whether living with them or just having a party every now and then.  The grounds are big enough for a pony or two and provision is made for a secure place for chickens and ducks.  Being aware of the dangers of water as well as the joy of water the large pond is only accessible through gates making it safer for small people.

This website has been created to give a very comprehensive story of both the house and the garden as well as all the amazing amenieties there are in the area.  The site will evolve over the next few months and every time we think of something that might be of interest to potential buyers, we will include it.  We will tell you of our favourite places to eat out, theatres, transport, schools, walks etc.

large garage at the side of the house

Side of house from the driveway showing the recently built large garage which has been constructed substantially enough with the view to it having the potential of converting into an annex, subject, of course, to planning consent being given.  The garage has been designed to be in keeping with the period of the house.

 

Large garage – up and over wide door – remote control.  The window allows some light into the loft of the garage which makes useful storage space.

 

There are two traditional windows at far end of the garage, but a very vigorous chocolate vine has curtained them on the outside!
