Cae-Pw-Cella is a Grade II listed Tudor Revival Villa of c1840, probably built as a Rectory, enjoying a truly idyllic setting nestled in the centre of the village of Shirenewton. The house over the past six years has been sympathetically transformed into a striking, spacious yet manageable family home retaining its original character and charm including a self-contained two bedroomed coach house. Internally one of the main features to the ground floor is the quite outstanding bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with bi-folding doors leading onto the formal terrace. The remainder of the living space is both spacious and versatile and comprises elegant reception hall, study/snug, malt room, drawing room and dining room with a superb inglenook fireplace. The upper floor offers two master bedroom suites with luxury bathrooms and three further bedrooms, all en-suite. There is extensive cellarage. A top of the range Bang and Olufsen sound system has been installed throughout. The property also benefits from a large stable block, paddock and tennis court area.
Shirenewton Village is situated on the edge of the Wye Valley (An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and although relatively small, it has three pubs, primary school, very active village community and is surrounded by an abundance of country lanes, open farmland and bridle paths offering a wealth of opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. There are school bus services providing for the Haberdashers Schools in Monmouth and St. Johns on the Hill Preparatory School in Chepstow. The M48 motorway is approximately 5 miles distant for commuting to Bristol, Bath, London or Cardiff. Cheltenham is approximately 46 miles distant.
The Vendors were captivated by the beauty of the house and location and knew the minute they walked through the door, without actually viewing the remainder of the property, that they would make this their home. From the time they moved in they have tastefully and sympathetically refurbished, improved and extended it to make it into the striking home that it is today.
