This property has so much potential; it is a five-bedroom family home with shop premises and lapsed planning building permission for a three-bedroom detached property at the back of the property which has its own entrance from Townsend. Alternately, property can itself be redeveloped into two semi-detached two/three-bedroom properties plus the building plot. More plans for the lapsed planning are in the office. Also, the property has a shop space which has currently got planning consent to become a restaurant/takeaway but can lend itself to many possibilities. Furthermore the property comes with ample parking for four cars and patio area separate to the building plot.

Presteigne, (Llanandras in Welsh), was once the county town of Radnorshire and nestles at the heart of the Marches on the border of Wales and England. Surrounded by beautiful, unspoilt countryside, this thriving border town has many unique qualities that make it both a perfect destination and a base from which to explore. Set alongside the river Lugg, at the corner of the three counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Powys, it is within a drive from Hay on Wye, Hereford, Ludlow and Shrewsbury. Just over an hour and a half from Birmingham and the beautiful coastline of West Wales, it would be difficult to find a better place to stay for ease.

The High Street has a good range of individual shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels and services. Good accommodation is plentiful, both in the town and the surrounding area, and whether your choice is self-catering or serviced accommodation; high quality local and organic produce is available in both shops and restaurants. There’s even a Michelin starred restaurant five miles outside Presteigne.

The surrounding countryside is breath taking, and the drive from Presteigne to Aberystwyth was voted one of the ten most beautiful drives in the world by the aa. Just to the west are Radnor Forest and Offa's Dyke. Go slightly south west and you can browse the book shops of Hay on Wye, and to the east you can sample the renowned culinary delights of Ludlow. Hereford, with its Cathedral, is a stone’s throw away and in between there is activities and visits to satisfy a whole variety of tastes.

Throughout the year the senses are served with a range of musical and arts based events; The Presteigne Music Festival is a prestigious and internationally renowned regular event whilst Irish music, African drums, and French-Canadian percussionists have performed in a rich and constantly varied menu supplied throughout the year. There is a calendar of high quality art exhibitions throughout the year, whilst the Church of St Andrew's permanently houses its own treasure, a 16th century Flemish Tapestry. If all this isn’t enough the Judge's Lodging, an award winning restored Georgian Court House complete with cells, courtroom and living quarters that.
