Pant-Yr-Eos Farm, Henllys, Cwmbran, Torfaen, NP44 7AS
Possibly dating back to the 1500s this farmhouse is a hidden gem set in circa 11 acres, found in the rural hamlet of Henllys on the outskirts of Cwmbran. A perfect balance of secluded country life yet only moments from superb commuter links and town facilities.
Specifically chosen as an idyllic location to bring up children, the current owner has many exceptional memories of the countless parties and events held on the land.
The farmhouse underwent extensive renovation 20 years ago. A more recent two-storey side extension incorporates an ensuite bedroom to the first floor and a further ensuite ground floor bedroom. Adapted and designed for wheelchair use, this portion of the house would be ideal for multi-generational living.
Over recent years, the owner has undertaken an extensive wildlife programme. Planting 1500 trees, protecting wildlife species and omitting the use of chemicals on the land. There are approximately 11 acres, divided into several fields and including 3 acres of woodland. Various organisations have expressed an interest in managing some of the land for their wildlife use. This option would be available to those wanting to retain the land without incurring the maintenance responsibilities. The numerous outbuildings offer a five bay field shelter, extensive workshop & storage facilities along with a double garage. Formal gardens surround the house with the remaining land encircling providing privacy.
The passion for utilising nature extends to the utilities used within the farmhouse. A biomass boiler services the hot water and heating, solar energy and bore hole water supply create an eco efficient home with the convenience of mains electric and water too. The rural heat incentive scheme and feed-in tariff ensure lower bills and a good return.
A pitched open porch set in a stone façade covers the entrance leading to the hall.
Within the hall a large cupboard provides practical storage, Chinese slate covers the hall floor and continues into the downstairs cloakroom with close coupled w.c, wall mounted basin and window.
French doors lead out to the garden from the ground floor of the extension. A triple aspect room with wooden floor, double cupboard and stairs to the first floor. The large ensuite bathroom to the ground floor is currently equipped for disability use.
The dual aspect farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room features exposed beams on the ceiling. An extensive range of units spans two sides with a one and half bowl sink unit inset into the granite effect work surface. The oven sits in a chimney recess, there is a built in dishwasher and space for upright fridge freezer. Lit by two skylights the utility room is accessible from both the kitchen and outside and features storage cupboards and space for a further fridge and freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer.
A large open fire with wood burner warms the dining room, exposed beams on the high ceiling add to the character and French doors open on to the garden.
Two sash windows in the lounge overlook the mature garden. Wide oak planks form the floor with exposed beams on the ceiling. An ornate oak mantel framing a brass fireplace upon a slate hearth is the focal point of the room.
