If you are looking to sample some of the spectacular views of Mid-Wales, then look no further than this historic, character-filled family home set high up in the rolling hills of the Wye Valley, enjoying generous accommodation throughout, and useful outbuildings in a stunning location!
Located high up in the hills of the Wye Valley, this property is a real one-off! In a picturesque location, but not isolated, the property is accessed via a country lane and a cattle grid leads into the grounds, with a tarmacadam parking area with space for at least three vehicles. This in turn leads to a brick paved walkway up to an enclosed porch over the front door, which opens up into an impressive 5.29 x 4.20m reception room, with original Foresight cast iron range and dual aspect windows, as well as a door leading into the second reception room measuring 5.36 x 2.78m which is currently being utilised as a study/home office. From the main reception, steps lead down into the wonderful kitchen/reception room. This lovely room measures 5.98 x 5.69m, and boasts an Inglenook fireplace and original bread oven as features, as well as ample space for food-preparation, dining and relaxing, making this the perfect room for entertaining! An enclosed porch sits on the rear of the side of the property as well, and the staircase to the first floor landing is shielded from the kitchen by oak panels.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, and a sizeable family shower room. There is another staircase from the first floor landing, which leads to the attic room with restricted head height, which could be used as an occasional bedroom.
The back of the kitchen leads on to a useful barn which is utilised as a utility room, with external door and staircase leading to a first floor room measuring 5.67 x 3.34m.
Externally, the property boasts further outbuildings attached to the property in the form of a large barn, measuring 7.58 x 5.32m, currently used as storage but would be ripe for conversion subject to the necessary planning consents should further accommodation be required, a half door at the rear of this barn leads to another useful space, measuring 6.35 x 2.81m.
Externally, the property benefits from gardens which surround the property, offering privacy, well-stocked floral and shrub borders, and the aforementioned parking area. A secret garden to the west of the parking area is a nature lover’s paradise! To the rear of the property is a hard standing area, with five bar gate enjoying and vehicular access, should additional parking be required.
All in all, this is a stunner of a family home dating to the 1800s, enjoying a wealth of character including exposed beams, oak flooring and original features throughout, and the scenery on offer from almost every window must be seen to be believed! Call us now to book in your viewing!
