A one off! A lovely three bedroom former railway cottage in a convenient location with superb downstairs space and stunning attic conversion. The rare mix of well-presented accommodation and scope to improve! Don't believe me? Come and look for yourself!
A classic railway cottage with a twist in a convenient semi-rural location just a couple of miles from the thriving market town of Builth Wells!
Approached from Railway Terrace, this excellent home is accessed via a paved walkway over a pleasant, low maintenance front garden, laid mainly to gravel with logstore and housing for the LPG bottles. The front door opens up into a small entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor landing and door into the main 4.47 x 3.84m reception room. From here, an opening leads into the 5.43 x 2.09m kitchen with understairs storage cupboard. A door from here leads into the rear lobby with door in to the former bathroom. Measuring 2.27 x 1.72m, the plumbing is in place for reinstalling a bathroom if the new owners wish, but this area of downstairs is ripe for conversion to whatever the new owner wishes. Given the current situation, it would make a fantastic home office, allowing a work/family life balance. Another door from the rear lobby leads to the 3.02 x 2.79m former kitchen, another blank canvas that would make an excellent snug. From here, a door leads into a further room, which leads back around to the kitchen. The possibilities are endless for this area of the house, and there is plenty of natural light coming into the property from large skylights. Back to the first floor, the current owner has changed the layout completely. On offer here are two double bedrooms measuring 3.44 x 3.02m and 3.20 x 2.56m, with the larger room currently being utilised as a snug/study to take in the wonderful views to the rear. A modern bathroom has also been installed on the first floor, and there is ample storage throughout. A door from the first floor landing leads into a further lobby, with large storage cupboard, and a staircase rises from here into a stunning third bedroom in the attic. With four skylights here, the natural light pouring into the property and the immense views over the rear garden and farmland beyond, are really something to behold.
Externally to the rear, there is a vehicular lane around the back of the terrace and this property enjoys a sloping drive down to a useful outbuilding which could be utilised as a garage, with plenty of storage space and inspection pit, which is partially filled in, if working on cars is your thing. The garden behind the outbuilding is a decent space, with a useful block built garden store at the bottom of the garden.
This truly is a unique opportunity for someone to enjoy a cracking family home, which has been modernised and improved no end by the current owner, yet also comes with the benefit of a blank canvas to the rear to really put your own stamp on the property. With the benefit of no onward chain, this fantastic house must be seen to be appreciated in full!
Telephone & Broadband: Telephone- subject to BT transfer regulations. According to comparethemarket.com the property has a broadband speed of: 17.35 Mbps (average speed of Mbps).
