The Gatehouse, Pencraig is a neo-gothic marvel, built by the antiquarian Sir Samuel Rush and designed by the renowned Gothic revival architect Edward Blore. The former main lodge to Goodrich Court authentically conjures up the great castles of the 14th and 15th centuries. Built with local red sandstone the antique looking facade belies the modern and characterful accommodation within.
The interior is spacious and full of charm with all three floors accessed via the lovingly recreated medieval stone spiral staircase.
Outside the property you will find enclosed parking and a double garage with workshop access. The sizable garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. Making full use of its position the lounge features double sliding doors on to a veranda with far reaching views along the valley.
The interior features numerous gothic revival touches such as arched windows, arrow slits and beams. However recent internal alterations have transformed this four-bedroom property into a spacious, character filled modern home. The lower ground floor has its own shower and kitchenette areas whilst the large attic space has the potential for a multitude of uses.
Conveniently located off the A40 between the vibrant market towns of Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye and close to some of the most beautiful countryside in the county.
