A wonderful opportunity to purchase a substantial family home, which has been tastefully and painstakingly modernised during the current owner's tenure, whilst retaining many classical features, and a scope for further improvements!
A property that has it all! Large gardens and substantial double garage, generous accommodation that has been painstakingly and tastefully modernised during the current owner's tenure, whilst still retaining many original features and potential still for the new owners to modernise and improve. Built in 1866, the property is set back on the junction of the A470 and the B4358, with fenced grounds surrounding. From the Western side of the property, there is a pedestrian gate from the road, and this leads over a front garden up to the front door which leads into an enclosed porch.
A door from here leads into the 4.72 x 4.40m reception room, with window to the front, and window to the kitchen, and a welcoming woodburning stove inset into a feature fireplace. The flooring in here is a stunning ornate polished tile that leads into the reception hall as well. An opening from the main reception room leads into the 3.90 x 2.97m snug, with feature fireplace and windows to the side. A useful utility room is accessed from the main reception which leads on to an external door which opens to a courtyard garden area and brick built outbuildings. The reception hallway, is accessed from the main reception, and this used to be a further entrance, but the doorway has been replaced with a window. A modern oak staircase rises from here to a first floor landing, and a door leads on to the impressive 7.85 x 3.34m kitchen/breakfast room. With ample space for food preparation, dining and seating, this is a lovely room with the benefit of an external door to the rear garden, separate washing up area, and walk-in larder cupboard.
The first floor consists of three bedrooms, two of which are comfortable doubles, and a well-proportioned single. There are two bathrooms on this floor, both accessed from the galleried landing, one having a reduced sized bath. The main bedroom enjoys lovely views to the front, as well as a unique stained glass window. The vendor has informed us that electrics have been put in place on the landing to continue extending over the kitchen, should further accommodation be required.
Externally, the property has the benefit of lawned front gardens which stretch down to the road, and around the side of the property, and to the rear, there is a superbly sized garden, with gravelled seating areas, pathways around, useful outbuildings and brick built raised beds. A forecourt area in front of the 5.26 x 4.56m double garage, leads to the rear gate for vehicular access.
All told, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a lovely family home, which has undergone extensive modernisation over the current owner's tenure, with potential for further modernisation and large grounds surrounding. Give us a call now to book your viewing, and see how it could work for you!
Newbridge-on-Wye is located roughly in the middle of Wales, and lies 7.1 miles south of Rhayader. The main road running through the village is the A470, running from Rhayader to the north and Builth Wells to the south. The B4358 also passes through the village; it runs from Beulah in the west through to Llandrindod Wells in the east. This road system is useful for commuters traveling from west and north-west Wales to areas in the south. Newbridge-on-Wye was historically a stop off point for drovers, who moved livestock from place to place. Newbridge-on-Wye proved to be an ideal location for drovers to stop and rest because it afforded a safe crossing-point on the river Wye. This led to a settlement forming, including a large number of pubs. This fact is celebrated by the statue of a drover on the village green. Newbridge-on-Wye also sited a railway station on the Mid-Wales Railway, until its closure on December 31, 1962. The site of the station is now occupied by a housing estate, although the old railway bridge still remains.
