Front Cover Home: Cherry Orchard

Cherry Orchard is an imposing spacious and extremely well appointed country residence which is completely enveloped by well over sixteen acres of gardens and grounds and occupies a splendid rural location in the popular well placed Village of Earlswood between Usk and Chepstow. 

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a delightful equine property with many unique features set in a slightly elevated position with fine open views towards Wentwood Forest. 

We understand from the present owner that the oldest part of the property dates from 1602 and was extended in the 1700’s with the main front part of the house added in around 1820. Reputably the property was the Hunting Lodge of the Wills Tobacco family having leased the Hunting Rights of Wentwood from the Duke of Beaufort. 

The property stands in around 16.5 acres of excellent pasture land having several acres of formal gardens arranged in a parkland manner. Internally the property has been tastefully designed and maintained and sympathetically updated and offers excellent family accommodation having 4/5 bedrooms and 4 reception rooms; this combined with the external office/shower room etc gives Cherry Orchard the flexibility for either multi generational living or an excellent environment for a home office. 

Approached via electric gates with side stone walling a tarmac driveway leads to a large parking area and double garage with a side spur driveway leading to the stable yard where five stables plus tack room, feed store, mountain block will be encountered and further on to a large Morgan’s of Usk steel portal barn where three more demountable loose boxes can be found. 

Externally the formal gardens have been lovingly tended and the large imposing front terrace with sandstone balustrade commands excellent views towards Wentwood Forest and in turn gives access to the covered heated pool which has telescopic glazed walls enabling the pool to be exposed in good weather conditions. 

The property is situated in the heart of equine sporting country with excellent riding and walking locally through the quiet country lanes and further to Wentwood a short hack away.
