How much is your home worth?

Gelli-haf, Pontllanfraith, NP12 2RH

An outstanding opportunity to acquire a 16th century 'Welsh longhouse style' stone farmhouse with extensive, mature and private gardens and a separate paddock (circa 1.3 acres, leasehold approximately 970 years remaining). The property is found just off the A4049 in a quiet spot yet offering swift access onto the main road network and Blackwood Town centre being a five minute drive.

Full of original character the 5 double bed property has been subject to modernisation and updating with a newly fitted kitchen, the addition of a ground floor cloakroom/boot room, a new gas central heating system, many new windows and most attractive reclaimed timber floors. To the first floor, as well as the spacious bedrooms and good storage there is a re-fitted shower room and separate re-fitted bathroom.
To the ground floor are two generous reception rooms (one with original recessed fireplace and bread oven), large kitchen/diner, a music room, a study area in the hallway, a utility room, ground floor cloak room and boot room.

The private formal gardens with fruit trees adjoins the paddock, this can be also reached via the gravelled parking area. There is also a level lawned rear garden.
