Set in very private position with level gardens of over 0.5 acres, this individually conceived and architect designed 1970's property is offered for sale for the first time since it was built. Very adaptable accommodation but requiring some modernisation this still remains a fabulous opportunity for someone to create a wonderful home. SOLD WITH NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Introduction

This is truly a one off property that despite its need for updating offers an oasis of quiet tranquility. Set in its own grounds of over 0.5 acres surrounded by high hedges providing complete privacy you genuinely would not know the property existed. Originally conceived and designed by a hugely respected local teacher at John Beddoes School the property is an iconic 1970's design and latterly extended to provide an almost self contained annexe this is a very adaptable property. The accommodation can almost be what you want it to be such is the versatility of the property. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom; on the ground floor there is a study or bedroom 4, kitchen, dining room and large living room with iconic vaulted ceiling and then the annexe provides a further large bed/sitting room and an en-suite bathroom.

Confused? Make an appointment to view and you will not be disappointed. Sold with no onward chain.

Property description

As you turn on off the lane and in to the private drive you are immediately aware of the incredible private setting with the house located to the rear quarter of the garden. Parking on the tarmac area in front of the property you enter through the glazed entrance vestibule which leads in to the hallway. Off here is the WC and the study which could be the fourth bedroom if required. Through glazed double doors you enter into the dining room with large window a feature and the room is semi-open plan with a single step up leading to the main living room. A particular feature of this room is the exposed brick wall and vaulted ceiling rising on a slope to a double height with exposed beams and a Minstrels Gallery looking down on to the room below. In the corner is the door leading to the annexe or master bedroom suite depending on how you want to use it. There is a utility room off the inner hallway and then the main bedroom, which is unusual as it has an open fireplace and was originally designed as a bed/sitting room for an elderly relative and has built in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle. Taking the stairs off the lounge is the first floor with two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, driveway & garages

When the plot was purchased it was designed for two dwellings but the second property was never intended to be built as the owner wanted to maintain a high degree of privacy which has been achieved by the high hedging which surrounds the garden. Primarily laid to lawn which surround the property on all sides with mature fruit trees dotted around with patio area to the front.

The tarmac driveway leads to the parking area for numerous well placed vehicles and there is a double garage with electronic up and over door and a further single garage/workshop was added sometime later again with electronic up and over door, plenty of power and light.

Planning potential

We understand that the original plot of land was designed for two dwellings but the second was never built. It is therefore reasonable to assume that a new application for a further dwelling could be viewed favourably and could provide additional financial resource if required.

Location

Located just short walk to the centre of the sought after Market Town of Presteigne located in the Welsh Marches. This was the county town of Radnorshire and has become a local cultural centre, hosting two festivals. First, the oddly named Sheep Music Festival dedicated to contemporary music and the Presteigne Festival of Music and the Arts. The town is fortunate to have an award winning museum - The Judges Lodgings. Presteigne has a Primary and Secondary School, Leisure Centre and thriving community spirit with the popular market being held once a month. Further afield, the markets towns of Knighton and Ludlow offer a range of facilities, the latter being known for its restaurants and festivals. The nearest train station is in Knighton, a little under 7 miles away. The Cathedral City of Hereford, 20 miles offers greater amenities.

Directions

From Presteigne town centre proceed along Hereford Street passing John Beddoes School on your right and after a short distance there is an unmarked lane to the left. Follow this lane to the end and take the bottom driveway on the right hand side.
