Where do we start with this fantastically appointed family home? Being positioned in the heart of the thriving market town of Builth Wells, Llanfair Cottage is a handsome, and surprisingly spacious property. Historically a stable block for the Llanfair Hotel, the current owners have completely transformed this property into a magnificent home, with generously proportioned rooms, and stylish modern fixtures and fittings, whilst retaining the character features that give it a magical feel as you walk round.
At the front of the property is a hardstanding area for private parking, which could be extended further into the garden should the new owner's require additional space, and this leads up to the front door which in turn gives access into the entrance hallway. A door from here leads into the impressive 5.71 x 4.25m kitchen/diner, with ample space for food preparation, dining and entertaining or relaxing, with a breakfast bar in the centre of the room. The entrance hallway also leads into a cosy dining room, with measurements of 4.24 x 2.61m, wrapping around the back of the entrance hallway to lead in to a handy utility room with downstairs WC and wash hand basin. The vendors have informed us that plumbing is in place for a shower to be installed in this room, should the new owners wish to do so. Double opening doors from the dining room lead into the main reception room, measuring 5.79 x 4.48m, enjoying double opening doors to the garden, gas log effect stove with remote control, dual aspect windows and a lovely cast iron spiral staircase leading to the first floor. This room is particularly calming and perfect to relax in the evenings, whilst overlooking the gardens.
On the first floor accessed via the spiral staircase, are two good-sized bedrooms, measuring 4.53 x 2.19m and 3.90 x 2.18m, accessed from a 1.85 x 1.77m landing area. A further staircase rises to a first floor landing from the entrance hallway, which in turn leads to another two double bedrooms, measuring 4.45 x 4.23m (max.) and 4.88 x 4.19m (max.). The landing houses a newly installed boiler, fitted in 2022, and also leads to the striking, luxury family bathroom, comprising of a double walk-in shower, roll-top bath, low flush WC and wash hand basin.
Externally, the property boasts the aforementioned parking area to the front, and wrapping around the side to the back of the property is the lovely garden area. This is of good size, and enjoys a double-skin garden shed, which could easily be transformed to a home office if light and power were connected to it. The garden is laid mainly to lawn with floral and shrub borders, and there are many seating areas to enjoy the grounds of this property, and the views over the Groe Park.
