Priory House, Priory Street, Usk, Monmouthshire , NP15 1BJ
A unique blend of 17th and 18th century architecture this corner house is the greater portion of three attached homes. Situated in a prominent position with one side overlooking Usk Town Square this grand listed residence has a discreet tucked away entrance found behind an old stonewall and large gates. A gravel parking area leads to the allocated parking and garaging for the three properties.
The main entrance found on Priory Street lies behind an arched wooden studded door with brass door furniture. Divided into four areas the internal hallway runs the full depth of the house. The modern downstairs cloakroom sits beyond a panelled archway. Dividing the initial part of the hall is a wooden arched latch door with a leaded light panel to the side, siting within an ornate wooden frame with arched and fleur de lys detailing. Beyond this, the second inner hall features high ceilings with detailed coving and wide doorways, decorative dado rails and a floor to ceiling cupboard with panelled doors. All the ground floor accommodation is accessible from here. Another full height divide displays a wide panelled door with glass panes and arched glass pane detailing above. Leading through to the third hallway a superb curving spindle stairwell continues up through to the first and second floor ending beneath a light dome. A further door enters into the back lobby.
