WHEN Abergavenny was named as Wales' best place to live by the Sunday Times, one of the biggest selling points mentioned was the beautiful Linda Vista Gardens. 

Now, there is an opportunity for a keen property developer to take on what used to be a gorgeous mansion and family home and renovate it back to life. 

The property itself, set amongst the "beautiful, manicured gardens" at the heart of Abergavenny, offers you the "luxury" of having one of the most gorgeous parks on your doorstep, which goes some way to make up for the fact the property doesn't come with any land.

Originally dating back to around 1875, the property, which is currently split into five separate apartments, but could easily be returned to its former life as a five-bedroom family home, has retained "many lovely period features throughout" while offering stunning elevated views across the gardens towards the Blorenge hills. 

While it is noted the property will need an extensive restoration and could be a major project for any prospective owners, estate agents Capsel Limited of Mamhilad describe it as "a perfect investment opportunity" to help a "magnificent" building come "back to life and realise its full potential".

A foodie's heaven, Abergavenny is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic views, and then head back into the centre of town for a delicious treat of coffee and cake from a range of independent cafes, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops covering the pedestrianized main shopping streets.
