Forming part of an award-winning mill conversion, this sympathetically finished three-storey town house is nestled in the rugged Clydach gorge, yet is just 200 metres from Gilwern village centre.
Gilwern is a traditional village with pubs, shops, and a picturesque canal. It sits on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage site, and you can enjoy country walks right from your doorstep or visit the historic town of Abergavenny (4 miles) full of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes. Nearby are galleries, museums, castles and a vineyard, or hire a narrowboat; you can see the viaduct crossing the Clydach just a little way up the gorge. Other attractions in the area include Blaenavon Iron Works (7 miles), The Big Pit National Coal Museum (7 miles), the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre (22 miles), horse riding, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking on the Usk and Wye. This elegant townhouse is part of a converted textile mill, originally powered by a water wheel. The water wheel is gone, but the sound of water is ever-present.
The property is in a sheltered position that catches the winter sun, there is also a shaded area of decking to the rear for hot weather. The main access is to the front of the property where you will enter into the kitchen/dining area, a spacious room with areas for relaxing or dining and a well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher.

The lounge has a distinct retro vibe, with low comfortable sofas, a TV and a vintage stereo.
