Lower Meadow,
Orchard House Lands, 7.08 Acres


Unexpectedly Back on the Market

Offers over £150,000 invited

for immediate cash sale

In the County of Monmouthshire, Located on the very edge of Abergavenny, enjoying convenient access from a council-maintained lane, situated only a little over 200 yards from the main A40 Abergavenny to Brecon Road, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and commanding excellent outlooks over the town under the backdrop of the renowned Blorenge Mountain.



comprises one enclosure and has a convenient gated access directly off Pentre Road, the public highway skirting its southern boundary, which also forms the limit of the popular residential western part of the town. The land, which has a principally south-south-westerly aspect, is gently sloping, running from approximately 220 feet to 260 feet above mean sea level, it is enclosed by a combination of hedges and fences with one well-established Ash tree on its eastern fringe. The soil is predominantly a medium loam of good depth and as such lends itself to a variety of cropping possibilities.  The field is currently down to productive grassland but could be equally well suited to arable cropping.



The land is sold subject to and with the benefit of any rights of way, easements, wayleaves, etc., which exist. In particular, it will be noted that electricity cables traverse the land and a water pipe is known to run under the land parallel to the western boundary, this supplying Orchard House, located to the north. There is currently no mains water supply connected to the land, but in 2011 the current owner had a quotation from Welsh Water for a connection from a water main situated in Pentre Road.



No entitlements are being included in the sale of the land.



All ingoing tenant-right matters are included in the sale and will not thus be charged to the purchasers. The purchasers shall buy the land in its current condition and no claim for dilapidations or other matters shall be entertained.






An uplift clause covering development applies to the land, this being at a level of 25% and enduring for a period of 25 years from October 2011. The field is located outside the boundary of the Brecon Beacons National Park, adjacent to a developed area of Abergavanny town. The land being sold is understood to currently be situated outside the town development boundary, but; with the apparently unsatiated demand for dwellings both county-wide and nation-wide, there would appear to be at least some likelihood that the land could be considered suitable for development at some time in the future.



The sale of Lower Meadow provides prospective purchasers with the seldom arising opportunity to buy a little piece of Wales, which with its slightly elevated topography provides lovely outlooks over the town under the ever-changing backdrop of the surrounding hills.  Whether to commence a small-scale farming enterprise, to become self-sufficient or simply possess to enjoy as recreational or amenity land, the field should prove most therapeutic.



Persons in possession of the sale particulars and plan may inspect the land at any reasonable time, but please remember the country code and leave gates as you find them. Any persons viewing the land do so at their own risk.



Offers in excess of £120,000 are invited, it should be noted however that from interest already experienced, this figure will be exceeded by a considerable margin.
