Countryside Residential is offering five purchasers the opportunity to own a private paddock in addition to their garden at Churchfield (Mae Maes yr Eglwys), the company's development in the historic village of Llangattock, located within the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.
An existing paddock, which is set back behind five of the houses, is to be spilt between them, offering individual plots ranging from one third to three quarters of an acre. Richard Rawson, Sales and Marketing Director of Countryside Residential (South West) Ltd., comments, "This is a fantastic opportunity for purchasers who would like some land in addition to their own private garden. The paddock is big enough for numerous uses such as allotments or keeping goats."
He continues, "The houses at Churchfield are ideal for families who want to enjoy the benefits of the living amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK. Nearby are the limestone crags of Mynyad Llangatwg and, for the more adventurous, the most extensive caving system in the British Isles."
Churchfield comprises six detached 4 and 5 bedroom houses and a terrace of six, 3 and 4 bedroom cottages. All of the houses are built in the architectural vernacular of the area employing local labour and using local stone and slate roof tiles.
Several of the houses include luxury features such as a guestroom with an ensuite bathroom and a master bedroom suite with an ensuite bathroom and a separate dressing area. The four bedroom 'Dore' house design also includes a generously proportioned games room which, being situated over the garage, gives children greater freedom to play causing minimum disturbance to other members of the household! The room would also be ideal as a nanny suite, a granny annexe or a study.
Churchfield is located opposite the 11th Century St Catwg's church from which Llangattock, the anglicised version of the Welsh name Llangatwg, Llan - a church or enclosure; Catwg - the patron Saint, takes it's name. The development is believed to be situated on the site where medieval village fayres took place.
Following a recent dig by a local archaeologist, two silver pennies, one from the reign of Edward II (ruled from 1307 until 1327) and the other from the reign of Edward III (1363 until 1369) were uncovered.
Llangattock is situated on the River Usk just above the pretty town of Crickhowell, which is linked by an arched medieval bridge built in the local stone. Llangattock has a good range of restaurants, historic inns and excellent shops, many with original Georgian fronts.
Churchfield is located just off the A4077 with links via major routes to the M4 providing good road links to Cardiff, Bristol, Newport and Birmingham.
The houses are available for sale priced from £165,000 to £350,000.
