Nestling in its riverside setting on the banks of the River Rhymney, Ironbridge provides a stunning opportunity to acquire a contemporary home which has been totally refurbished and extended.

Standing in 14 acres in Draethen, near Caerphilly, the five-bedroom property is ideal for country pursuits having the benefit of fishing rights and the stable block, which was previously separately registered as a riding school. It is on the market for £1,900,000.

The iron bridge adjacent to the property was built by Lord Tredegar in 1829 to provide access for horse drawn vehicles from nearby Ruperra Castle to and from the church at Lower Machen.

The majority of the ground are pasture and paddocks and there is also small woodland with formal gardens and lake plus a further lake situated within the woodland which could be described as a secret garden.

The property has been remodelled to a particularly high standard with a contemporary feel.

A turret serves as the main entrance hall with large expanses of glass giving a light and airy feel.

Throughout the property is a top-of-the-range sound and vision system with the surround-sound also extending to the outdoors.

A main feature of the ground floor is the open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room and conservatory with a bespoke walnut and granite kitchen by Alexander Bullock of Cardiff.

Throughout the ground floor is a diamond flecked ceramic tiled floor which has the benefit of under floor heating.

The drawing room is particularly spacious and boasts large arched floor-to-ceiling windows as well as bi-folding doors to the garden.

From the drawing room through to the family room within the kitchen is a two-way wood-burner.

The large, well-appointed dining room can seat up to 14 people.

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms, the master bedroom having an en-suite dressing room plus huge shower with double shower head and seating either end, which also doubles as a steam room.

Off the master bedroom is also a private roof terrace enjoying the peaceful surrounds and the soothing sound of the river.

There are five bedrooms in total with two further en-suites.

The property is approached via a pair of electric, wrought iron gates and a long sweeping driveway which leads to a large stone chipped circular parking area.

Towards the lower part of the driveway on the right hand side is a detached Coach House, consisting of a double garage above which is a one-bedroom apartment with planning consent to be redeveloped as a three-bedroom, detached house with a double garage.

The driveway also provides access to the equestrian facilities which includes stable block with feed store, tack room and wc.

There is also a useful machinery/storage shed and log store.

A large decking area is situated next to the river.

The rear of the property overlooks the original iron bridge which in recent years has been refurbished and reinstated and there is a public right of way across the iron bridge from Draethen which proceeds through the grounds of the property.
