A spacious 6 bed 500 yr old house in a quiet friendly village with pub in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Large rooms and exposed beams throughout and a quiet terraced garden.
The house has six good size bedrooms with three bathrooms and a cloakroom, with a 28 ft kitchen and two large reception rooms. Old exposed beams with many character features throughout.
Conveniently set being a 15 minute drive from Brecon, within the historic village of Defynnog, the house is not overlooked and is very quiet. The garden is stepped behind the house with three separate levels that include a small lawn, patio and fruit tree area. The house benefits from mains water and drainage, and has oil fired central heating, two multi-fuel stoves and lpg bottled gas for the cooker. TV is currently via freesat satellite, and superfast broadband is connected.
The ancient village of Defynnog has two good pubs plus a stylish cafe/bakery and church. The village is a mile away from Sennybridge with two garages, village shops and post office, 4 further pubs plus primary school and doctor’s surgery. The market town of Brecon is 10 miles away with a 15 minute drive, and the house is situated set back from the A4067 quiet main road that links Swansea (1 hour away) to Sennybridge. The area is known for its wildlife & hill walking, whilst remaining largely a rural farming area. Defynnog also has The Defynnog Yew which is allegedly 5,000 years old.
This is a splendid family house, or great for those wishing ample home office space or an artist's studio. The house also has good B&B or holiday let potential with three of the bedrooms being next to bathrooms. It would also make a fantastic large holiday house, as the garden could easily be made low maintenance.
Early viewing strongly recommended.
