A fine home that genuinely possesses the WOW factor! Carcwm House is situated on the fringes of Llanwrtyd Wells in an elevated position overlooking the town, and with even more striking views to the front and rear, it really is a must see! The current owners have undertaken an extensive and sympathetic programme of renovation over the past six years, and we present to you now a truly stunning home with everything you would expect from a property built from local stone circa 1895, and then some!
Approached from a slip road off Beulah Road, the property enjoys privacy behind a hedged border, and a gated entrance opens up into a circular driveway leading up to the property and back round again. The front gardens are of good size, and laid mainly to lawn around the driveway, with several areas to park and well-stocked floral and shrub borders. The driveway also lead to the old garage, which has been removed, but the footings still remain in place for the new owners to erect one, or utilise as a large garden shed on the footprint. Further round to the rear, there is a large rear garden, with timber fence borders, and again, laid mainly to lawn. The size of the garden is in keeping with the accommodation on offer here, and there is a lovely raised slate patio area to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine and enjoy the far-reaching views to the countryside.
The internal accommodation is accessed via a lovely double entrance door into an enclosed porch, which opens up in to the impressive reception hallway. Eyes will be immediately drawn to the sweeping original staircase, and there is enough space for this to be a snug, with woodburning stove as a feature. A door from here leads into the wash room and downstairs WC, and the first reception room to enter into is the drawing room. Measuring 5.69 x 3.94m, this light and airy room boasts a curved bay window overlooking the rear gardens and original restored feature fireplace. The second reception room is currently utilised as a music room and measures 4.23 x 4.23m and again enjoys a similar bay window, and original fireplace. The reception hallway also leads into the 4.86 x 4.23m main reception room, and this doesn't disappoint once more with fireplace and window to the gardens. From the reception hallway, a door leads into a lobby, with access into the 2.81 x 2.44m home office/study, and also the excellent 2.60 x 1.92m pantry room with ample storage and original slate worktop. The lobby then opens up into the impressive kitchen/breakfast room, with maximum measurements of 8.34 x 3.90m and offering open plan living, and space for a range style cooker, and also Rayburn Royale. There is also space and plumbing for a dishwasher, and original cupboards. Proceeding out of the kitchen leads to a further lobby, with access into the boiler room with two boilers and two thermostats controlling the temperature of the heating upstairs and down, and hot water. The other side of the lobby leads to the really useful utility room/boot room, with space and plumbing for a washing machine.
The first floor begins with the impressive gallery landing. The landing extends to maximum measurements of 10.69 x 3.87m and again, the staircase is the feature that immediately draws the eye.

Llanwrtyd Wells is one of the smallest towns in Mid-Wales, sitting astride the River Irfon. With a population of approximately 850, it famously claims to be the smallest town in Britain. The town is located on the A483 between Llandovery and Builth Wells near the Tywi and Irfon valleys. Llanwrtyd Wells grew as a spa town around the Ffynnon Ddrewllyd, which still exists, following the discovery of waters with healing properties in 1732. The town is the site of both the World Bog Snorkelling Championships and the annual Man versus Horse Marathon, as well as other annual events. The market town of Builth Wells, located at the heart of Powys, is just 13 miles away in what is arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. Builth Wells lies within the Historic Boundaries of Brecknockshire, situated on the banks of the River Wye and the River Irfon – The upper section of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells is famously known for hosting the annual Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year.
