UNUSUAL OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE UNIQUE PROPERTY
Large modern bungalow in beautiful Mid Wales, near the Elan Valley – the Lakeland of Wales
The 5-bed detached bungalow extends to 237sq.m., and sits on ¾ of an acre with stunning views. The property was designed and built by the current owners in 2001, and was built up to a specification, rather than down to a price.
Solid oak floors, hardwood windows and doors throughout (internal and external), and a BBA approved exterior make this property very low-maintenance. Not only is the accommodation within the home of generous proportions, there are also sheds and a large outbuilding suitable forhobbies/games room/office, complete with its own kitchen area.
Situated in a quiet hamlet, yet within easy reach of the County Town, the bungalow is very well placed. Cardiff, Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham are all about two hours' distance; Shrewsbury and Hereford can be reached in a little over an hour, and the coast is about 50 minutes away. The area is known for its wildlife: within our garden we have seen red kites, buzzards, kingfishers, otters, newts, and even a water vole! The irregular shape of the land has lent itself to the creation of different 'zones', where a variety of activities may be carried out without impinging on the other areas.
The property has the potential for a number of different uses (subject, of course, to obtaining planning permission if necessary): as a large family home; as a retreat; as a nursing home; as asmall conference centre.

We designed and built this property to be as versatile as possible. Low maintenance, on one level, and with flexible living spaces (indoor and out). We have a full photographic record of the house build – from greenfield site - and the original drawings to help you navigate!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here in this small community, but our children have now grown up and we would like to downsize. This is truly a unique property in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain; one that needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
