Tyncoed is a delightful, Grade II Listed home located in the hills outside of Hundred House, offering peace and quiet, and plenty of space around. The property itself has been well-maintained, but could use some modernisation in places, and there is a wealth of potential, with the outbuildings ripe for conversion to additional accommodation if required by the new owners (STPP). Listed for its special architectural interest as a well-preserved regional vernacular farmstead, it is a converted hearth passage house of the late 17th or early 18th Century, believed to date back to medieval times originally as a Welsh longhouse. The present cow house was added later, and is shown on the 1837 Tithe map. In the second half of the 19th Century the front of the cow house was rebuilt and part of it was converted to a stable. A back kitchen was also added and is shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey. 

Accessed via a minor road and farm track on the eastern side of the A481, past an agricultural building, the internal accommodation comprises;  

Approached from the rear, an enclosed porch/utility room, measuring 2.95 x 2.00m, opens up into 5.99 x 3.53m kitchen/dining room. Believed to have been a later addition to the property, shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey, with original features such as the bread oven and fireplace, as well as space for an AGA, and ample space for food preparation, cooking and dining. A door from here opens up into a wonderful reception room, with maximum measurements of 5.30 x 5.02m and having the benefit of a large Inglenook fireplace housing an open fire. Accessed from the reception room is also a entrance hall and also the second reception room, or library, which has two doors giving access from the reception room, separated by a Plank & Muntin partition screen, and measuring 5.06 x 3.49m. Originally, this library would have been two service rooms, one for wet goods, and the other for dry. 

The first floor accommodation features a landing area with airing cupboard and door accessing an elevated ledge overlooking the kitchen, supported by joist ends that once spanned the entire room, which would have been used to store seed corn for the following year, as well as two bedrooms, and a family bathroom. On the second floor, accessed via a ladder style staircase, is a landing/dressing room for the largest bedroom, which measures 4.72 x 4.26m, has some restricted head height, and features more character including the visible collar-beam trusses, and a medieval timber as the window lintel.

Externally, the property benefits from private gardens and grounds extending to around an acre in total (TBV). The majority of the grounds are woodland, with many species of trees including Magnolia, Wellingtonia, Siberian Silver Birch, Ash, Oak and Douglas Fir, with pathways meandering through, a range of outbuildings which require some attention, and leading around to the aforementioned outbuildings which are currently utilised as storage. A five bar timber gate also leads into the grounds which could be utilised as additional parking if required.

Viewings are highly recommended on this wonderful slice of Mid-Wales history, offering privacy and tranquillity.
