Property description

Located close to the end of a no through road on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd Wells, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a detached bungalow peacefully situated near the end of a country lane, that has been tastefully modernised and improved by the current owner.

The best way to approach the property is by leaving Llanwrtyd Wells via Dolecoed Road for a couple of miles, and parking in a public layby on the side of the road. From here, there is a delightful walk over a pedestrian river bridge, leading up to the private grounds of Newbridge Cottage.

An open veranda protects the front door from the elements, whilst also providing a stunning place to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee, or evening glass of wine with some striking views over the stunning Mid-Wales countryside. An entrance hallway is accessed via double doors and leads in turn to the modern fitted kitchen, which enjoys ample space for food preparation and cooking, and a door from here leads down three steps into the modern family bathroom. The bathroom enjoys a suite of roll-top stand alone bath, low flush WC, sink inset into a vanity unit and separate shower cubicle. A door from the bathroom leads into the utility room, which houses the central heating boiler.

From the kitchen, a door leads into the first of three double bedrooms, enjoying a built-in wardrobe and double opening doors to the rear garden. The bedrooms on this side of the property enjoy spectacular views over the garden and to the river beyond. An opening again from the kitchen leads into a sizeable reception room, with ample space for dining and relaxing, with double doors opening to the rear garden and again taking in the views. A lobby at the bottom of the reception room opens up into two further double bedrooms, one with double opening to the rear garden as well as a storage cupboard with the plumbing in place for an en-suite WC and wash basin, should the new owners wish to reinstate these. The second bedroom has a good-sized dressing room off, and this could make a lovely en-suite bath or shower room, or indeed study.

Externally, the property benefits from a a large rear garden, which is flat and laid mainly to lawn. There is pedestrian access back to the aforementioned river bridge, and some lovely views in the peace and quiet of glorious Mid-Wales. We have been informed that the property enjoys a right to drive up to the property from Victoria Road, in order to drop off goods etc., however, there is no official parking with the property.

With no onward chain, this rare opportunity in an idyllic location must be viewed to be appreciated in full!

Telephone & Broadband: Telephone- subject to BT transfer regulations. According to the property has a broadband speed of: 34.50 Mbps (average speed of Mbps).

Please note you should always confirm this by speaking to the specific provider you would like to use. This is for guidance only.

The property is located close to the end of a country lane on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd Wells, which is one of the smallest towns in Mid-Wales, sitting astride the River Irfon. With a population of approximately 850, it famously claims to be the smallest town in Britain. The town is located on the A483 between Llandovery and Builth Wells near the Tywi and Irfon valleys. Llanwrtyd Wells grew as a spa town around the Ffynnon Ddrewllyd, which still exists, following the discovery of waters with healing properties in 1732. The town is the site of both the World Bog Snorkelling Championships and the annual Man versus Horse Marathon, as well as other annual events. The market town of Builth Wells, located at the heart of Powys, is just 13 miles away in what is arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. Builth Wells lies within the Historic Boundaries of Brecknockshire, situated on the banks of the River Wye and the River Irfon – The upper section of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells is famously known for hosting the annual Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year.
