5386 WA – Property for sale in Itton, Chepstow, Wales
This magnificent Country Home forms a significant part of the Historic Itton Court which was originally a fortalice to nearby Chepstow Castle. The property has a wonderful history and along with the other houses on the Estate was bought by the Curres in 1710, remaining in the family until 1956 when the last Lady Curre passed away. The renowned architect Sir Guy Dawber sympathetically re-designed the property in the late 19th Century taking full advantage of the wonderful natural light and spectacular far reaching views over rolling parkland toward the Severn Estuary. Today, The Great Hall combines immense period charm with spacious and versatile living accommodation. The entrance hall sits beneath a medieval tower and opens into a grand drawing room measuring 66' in length where the eye is drawn to the fine oak wall panelling, and strap work celling. A connecting doorway leads through to a triple aspect winter sitting room with an open fireplace, exposed beams and Tudor panelling. Additionally there is a library, a boot room, a house keepers room and a cloakroom. Perhaps the most significant room is the beautifully proportioned kitchen/family room which was formed from the original billiard room. This stunning room has lovely high ceilings and includes a huge central Island and bespoke hand painted cabinets complimented by granite and woodblock worksurfaces. The kitchen is easily large enough to accommodate a family around the large open fireplace, a formal dining area and a breakfast area. Beautiful stained glass windows are a noteworthy feature of this cheerful and welcoming room. Upstairs there are six generous double bedrooms served by luxurious en-suite and family bathroom facilities. The property lends itself perfectly to entertaining on a small or grand scale, either as a main home or country retreat.
