Brookwood Lodge, Gwernesney, Usk, Monmouthshire, NP15 1HF
An outstanding modernisation of this superb three storey family residence originally built in 1804. In keeping and sympathetic to the origins of the period of the build, this exceptional renovation juxtaposes a contemporary feel with historical features. Overall there is a warm homely feel with a real sense of a family home.
The attention to period features and continuous styling throughout ensures each room flows into the next. Much of the interior is designed by Quails of Usk, the influence of which is prominent in each exacting detail.
All of the internal joinery is solid oak and bespoke to reflect the original oak doors, beams, window sills and seats that remain. The ironmongery used on the internal carpentry and all of the solid oak double glazed leaded light windows throughout is handmade.
Covering the entire ground floor are limestone flags, beneath which is wireless, individually zoned underfloor heating. There are two staircases, the original curved stone stairwell leading to two bedrooms and the main oak and iron staircase found in the entrance hall leading to a further three bedrooms. Upstairs the floors are all solid oak which are currently carpeted in all bedrooms.
This family home can be found tucked away down a quiet tree lined lane, hidden behind lit Welsh stone curved walls and electric gates. Flanked either side by lawns the drive leads to a stone chipping parking area for 4 cars and a cedar clad double garage with attached office and shower room. The gardens are divided into three areas - a stone courtyard, enclosed side lawn garden and the main lawn garden with Welsh sandstone patio area. The whole plot is enclosed with mature hedgerow and fencing.
The oak and leaded light front door leads to a two sectioned entrance hall divided by a beamed archway. The initial hall has a high part vaulted ceiling and provides access to the downstairs cloakroom. The second hall area features the main staircase, a shelved storage cupboard and leads to both the formal lounge and kitchen.
The focal point of the triple aspect lounge is a large beamed fireplace with central log burner. To the side is an enclosed book case, French doors open onto the side garden.
Designed and fitted by Quails the kitchen has exceptional attention to detail, from the bespoke solid oak island unit with Scottish black leather and oak panelling, granite top, inbuilt chopping boards and self-close drawers to the oak and leather framed wall mounted Samsung smart tv.
