  • Idyllic & Secluded Rural Retreat 
  • Set in Approx. 2 Acres with Spectacular Views
  • Charming 3 Bedroom Detached Period House 
  • Paddock & Wildlife Pond
  • Useful Outbuildings (Scope Conversion to Holiday Let Subject to Planning Permission)

 

An opportunity to acquire a rural secluded retreat in a beautiful location with far reaching views to the Brecon Beacons and over the beautiful Welsh countryside.  The property offers peace and seclusion and the views to the Black Mountain and the Beacons beyond have to be seen to be fully appreciated. 

We understand that there has been a house on the site since the 16 Century, and as well as the house there is a useful outbuilding which has scope for conversion to, ancillary accommodation/holiday let, subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained.

The property lies a short distance from the historic town of Llandovery which has the ruins of a castle and a range of shops and public houses, as well as the prestigious Llandovery College.  The town is also situated on The Heart of Wales railway line which provides a direct link to Swansea and on towards London, and Shrewsbury to the North.

The A40 on the north side of Llandovery also offers a link across the Brecon Beacons and back to Monmouthshire, Ross on Wye and the now toll free Severn Bridge beyond.

The property lies in just under two acres of land which comprises a paddock area and a large wildlife pond.  The latter being isolated by fencing for child safety.  The Vendors also feel that the field may well provide the perfect site for solar self sufficiency in the future, subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained.
