  • Description

    Wye Cottage is a landmark and imposing detached period house originally built as an agents house for the Estate, found close to the popular town of Builth Wells.

    Location The property sits in an elevated position. The house is beautifully constructed from cut Welsh stone in a very individual design and offers excellent scope for further improvement and for extending the accommodation thus creating further ancillary accommodation from barns either side of the property. One of the over-riding features is its circular lawn and former walled garden. Builth Wells is and excellent market town which offers a wide range of shops and businesses as well as primary and secondary education, doctors surgeries and dental surgeries as well as hospital, leisure centre, golf course and the Wyeside Arts Centre.

    In this room there is a fireplace, shelving and a bay window overlooking the front garden. An inner hallway leads through to the sitting room also with a bay window to the front overlooking the garden and a cupboard, fireplace, shelving and a rear window. The kitchen is exceptionally large and offers a tiled floor with a range of fitted kitchen units, a large window to the rear, a cooker point and a stainless steel sink. From the kitchen there is also a large lean-to area currently used as a boot room with power and lighting. On the ground floor there is also a shower and utility room with a separate w.c. This room also has a butlers sink and a cupboard. From the inner hallway there is a staircase to the first floor landing giving access to the three bedrooms and bathroom located on this floor. All three of these bedrooms can be considered as double in size, two of which have a wash hand basin and the front two bedrooms have delightful views to the front.
