A traditional Welsh longhouse located in a peaceful location less than a mile from the centre of the sought after village of Franksbridge, enjoying around two acres (TBV) of gardens and grounds as well as some of the finest views that Mid-Wales has to offer!

Sympathetically restored during the current owner's tenure, the property is tucked away at the end of a private country track leading to only this property which runs parallel with a small brook. The track opens up into a parking area with space for a number of vehicles, and a walkway leads around the property to the front door which is protected from the elements via an enclosed porch. To the left of the porch is a useful utility room/garden stores measuring 5.98 x 2.24m and having light and power laid on and a door back to the gardens of the property. The porch also gives access into the wonderful 5.18 x 4.42m reception room, with woodburning stove inset into a large Inglenook fireplace and dual aspect windows. From here, there is access into the 5.08 x 3.83m bespoke kitchen/diner with further woodburning stove and views over the rolling countryside. 

A staircase rises to a first floor landing from the reception room and leads to the two double bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Externally, the property benefits from the aforementioned parking area to the rear of the property, and there is a large lawned area with fenced borders and mature shrubs and trees giving ample space for extending the property is the new owners require, subject to gaining the necessary planning permissions. A small pedestrian bridge leads over the brook into the gently sloping private woodland area with enough trees to keep the stoves alight for many years! There is a small treehouse which overlooks the property and grounds and gives some simply breath-taking views of the countryside beyond. The larger portion of the grounds of this property are positioned to the south west of the property, gently undulating and bordered by trees. There are also fantastic outbuildings adjoining the property that are current utilised as a workshop and storage, which again are ripe for conversion should the necessary planning permissions be gained.

This slice of paradise steeped in Welsh history must be viewed to be appreciated in full!
