Property description

From the driveway there is a door leading into the hall, however the front of the house faces the garden with a wonderful porch and two large bay windows allowing views down over the garden and onto Kinsley wood beyond. This opens into the hall with original tiled floor, staircase rising to the first floor, coving and ceiling rose. Many of these features are echoed throughout the house. To the left you have a home office with bay window and to the right you have the living room/office with a bay window looking over the garden and three other windows allowing plenty of light. The current owners have opened up the room by opening either side of the fireplace to create one large room with central fireplace. A second door leads into the door off the driveway with a door leading down to the cellar and a further door leads through to the dining room which could be a lovely play room for a family being near the new kitchen. There are two double corner cupboards and a door leading into a utility room with mosaic tiled splash backs and a door leading to the side of the house. The kitchen/breakfast room is an impressive space with vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, patio doors leading to the garden and an extensive range of units in a soft green colour and wooden worktops. There are integrated appliances, a central island and Welsh style dresser to the side. Off the hall is a cloakroom with ample space for coats and boots and a WC. The original staircase rises to the first floor with open and spacious landing with doors leading to the four double bedrooms. There is a bathroom fitted with a grey suite, with a shower over the bath and a view over the garden from the bath tub. Bedroom one has a sink in the corner, so the potential to create an ensuite could be explored. There is a separate WC off the landing and access to the attic.

Detached garage

A detached double garage with an electric roller door, light, power and pedestrian door to the side.

Gardens and parking

The garden and driveway extend to a third of an acre with the majority laid to lawn which would have been the front of the house originally. There is a patio area off the porch and kitchen perfect for a table and chairs and a pedestrian gate to the side leading to the driveway. Steps lead down the lawned area with mature shrubs and plants to the sides and running the lower level, the expanse of lawn lead down to a summer house, vegetable plot and a further area of lawn which is bordered by the original stone walls. This is the perfect garden for any keen gardener or a family needing space to let little ones run loose.

The driveway is approached off the road and has a walled boundary with railings above. There is extensive parking for a number of vehicles and leads around to the garage.

Location

The property is located just off the town centre of Knighton (Tref y Clawdd) which is located in Mid Wales, and is a market town within the historic county boundary of Radnorshire, lying on the river Teme, with a railway station on the Heart of Wales line.
