Latham House is an impressive stone-fronted Georgian property dating back to 1709. Over the past 300 years, it has been home to approximately 20 owners or occupiers, including the current residents. The property gets its name from the Latham family, who lived here between 1815 and 1872. Brimming with history and charm, this spacious family home is situated in the heart of Crickhowell.

Upon entering the property, you are greeted by an entrance hall with original wood flooring that extends into the living room. The dining room, open to the entrance hall, features an inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove and a useful pantry off. To the right of the entrance hall is a convenient cloakroom with plumbing for a washing machine and a store room, which could be repurposed as an office. At the rear of the property, a large living room provides the perfect space for family gatherings. This bright room is adorned with coving, a delightful bay window with window seats and original wooden shutters. Completing the ground floor is the kitchen/diner, which also boasts a bay window with a door leading to the rear terrace. The kitchen is equipped with base cupboards, a built-in dresser, an integrated oven and hob and plumbing for a dishwasher.

A beautiful, original wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where you will find four bedrooms. The rear two bedrooms are spacious, featuring built-in wardrobes and large sash windows with views of the Pen Cerrig Calch and Mynydd Llangatwg. This floor also has two bathrooms, one of which includes a bath and- separate shower. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a sitting room and features a glazed fanlight with barley twist glazing bars above the door, part of the Grade II* listing. The second floor offers three additional bedrooms, a store room and access to the attic. The property is rich with period features, including exposed beams, cornices, panelled doors, cast iron fireplaces and sash windows. There is also a good-sized cellar providing ample storage space.

Outside, the front of the property boasts a cast iron-railed courtyard and to the side, there is a parking space for one or two cars and garage—a rare find for a town property. The rear garden is a tranquil haven, featuring a paved terrace off the kitchen with steps leading down to a lawned area. This garden is adorned with established shrub and flower borders and private seating areas. A lovely, twisting wisteria climbs the rear of the house between the bay windows.
