4 Bed House - Detached
Northridge House is a detached family home, built for the current vendors in 1972 to a design by an established and well respected firm of Bristol architects. The property has been thoughtfully designed and laid out to make the most of its superb location with wide ranging views across the surrounding Monmouthshire countryside and across the Severn to the Cotswolds. More recently a detached double garage with guest annexe, kitchen and shower room was added. The property stands within attractive mature landscaped gardens and also benefits from an adjacent wildlife meadow of approximately 13 acres, bounded by a natural stream. The meadow includes mature woodland, many specimen trees and a wide range of native flora, notably large areas of native orchids. A modern barn is serviced with mains water.
The property is located in an area known as Pant-y-Cosyn, approximately one and a half miles from the established village of Shirenewton and within easy reach of Chepstow, with good road links via the M48/M4 as well as a high speed rail link from Bristol Parkway, bringing London Paddington within easy reach.
WILDLIFE MEADOW AND WOODLANDS
About twenty years ago, the vendors purchased approximately 13 acres of adjacent agricultural land approached by its own private lane. A modern barn is furnished with mains water. The vendors have planted approximately 4,000 oak, beech, cherry, alder, silver birch, rowan, field maple, small leaf lime, hornbeam and ash. There are also 70 specimen trees planted for interest including several magnolia, pawlonia, cornus, limes and a tulip tree. Half of the land is used as hay meadow. The site is registered as a Wildlife Site by the Gwent Wildlife Trust. Over the years, with careful management, the variety of flora has increased significantly with several varieties of orchid. The site attracts a wide range of fauna including butterflies, moths, foxes, rabbits, invertebrates and the occasional deer.
