This truly is a dream of a home for the equestrian enthusiast! The land is located to the side of the property, and is well-fenced around, offering a gently undulating field extending to approximately three acres in total. There is easy access from the double stable block behind the property to the field and from the top there are outstanding views across the striking Mid-Wales countryside. The private gardens surround the property, with a lovely front lawn bordered by a pretty brook to the front, and a gap in the hedgerow leads to an area ideally suited to having a polytunnel if you are after your own slice of 'the good life'. To the rear of the property is a gravelled seating area - a real suntrap in the summer months! The grounds must be seen to be appreciated in full, and that is before we even get started on the wonderful family home to come with it! Approached from the front of the property, the internal accommodation is accessed through a porch, and into the impressive 26 x 16 ft main reception room. In here we find a lovely Inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove, and plenty of exposed beams and stonework - a feature throughout this classically proportioned home. A door from the reception room leads into the lovely 25 x 16 ft farmhouse kitchen, with another Inglenook, and ideal position for a range style cooker, and plenty of space for a dining table. The kitchen also leads down to the 10 x 10 ft cellar, which could be a useful storage space if it was tanked out. From the main reception, another door leads into the 19 x 14 ft second reception, with another feature fireplace and external door to the rear garden. On the first floor, there are are three double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, one with a walk in dressing room, and all enjoying a wealth of character. There is also a family bathroom on this floor. The second floor enjoys a great space which could be utilised as an office, study or snug, leading through to a lobby and another double bedroom. This is also a great area for storage, being up in the attic area. All told, this is a truly stunning family home, and is bursting with character and charm. Viewings are highly recommended to be appreciated in full.
