Location & Description

Constructed some 20 years ago to the exacting standards of the Architect creator, Leobhan lies some 300yds west of Ross town centre, and commands absolutely stunning views across the famous horseshoe bend of the River Wye. The structure occupies an elevated, cliff top location and thus has no conventional garden to maintain, and offers spacious and truly individual accommodation on several levels. The views from the property are extensive, extending way beyond the river itself across hundreds of square miles of unspoilt and undulating countryside towards the Welsh hills in the distance.

Pedestrian access to the river is only minutes' walk away, as are all the facilities of this fascinating and historic market town.

The cleverly designed accommodation occupies the central portion of the structure. To the lowest level is the heated swimming pool, whilst to the northern elevation is the exceptionally spacious double garage, workshop and wine cellar! Many features of the construction have been designed to mitigate road noise. These include reinforced concrete floors, 6/12/6 double glazing to all rooms, dense blockwork walls and other features. Central heating is from a Rehau underfloor system, even including the double garage and workshop!
