Description

1 Llanelieu Court is a Grade II Listed property and forms the major part of this historic 17th Century country house featuring charming and characterful accommodation together with approximately an acre of land which comprises a garden and paddock, both with access to water and being fully fenced. The surrounding area is very peaceful and is located close to the foot of The Black Mountains and within The Brecon Beacons National Park.

This is a very individual home offering comfortable accommodation and retaining many of the original period features, of particular note are the arches, of medieval origin, found in the front porch and the hall. All three bedrooms are considered as double bedrooms and are very light and airy being served via a central landing which also gives access to a shower room and a separate and exceptionally large bathroom with a claw and ball bath, beams and timbers. Both the shower room and bathroom have w.c's.

Llanelieu Court was divided into two residences in the 1950s. The section for sale is very much the original part of the property and has retained a high level of privacy and individuality. The house itself is built of mainly stone elevations and has a feel of being a very unique property with some considerable historical signiificance. The historic, medieval church of St Ellwy lies opposite the Court and is much visited by tourists.
