The Gables is a beautiful stone fronted 'chocolate box' cottage situated in the popular village of Mathern. The cottage is believed to date back to the late 1700's but has been tastefully modernised by the current owner whilst retaining many original features. As you enter into the sitting room your eyes are drawn to the inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, the room has a light feel with windows looking to the front garden and to the cottage rear garden, overhead are the original oak beams and lovely wooden floor that flows through into the dining room which overlooks the front garden. There is a staircase rising to the first floor and a door leading into the good sized bright and airy kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with shaker style units and a range cooker and has plenty of space for a table and chairs, with a large double glazed window looking to the rear garden.
