Property description

Ysgubor Garreg translates to 'Stone Barn' we think it would be much more fitting if it were re-named 'Ysgubor Garreg Hardd' meaning 'The Beautiful Stone Barn'. The barn was purchased back in 1988 by the current owners, carefully converted to maintain many of its original features and sympathetically maintain the history that the building has. Now offering well maintained flexible accommodation, with 3 bedrooms and an optional fourth which also has a separate access, it is ideal for someone working from home, especially if you have clients coming to the property as they will not disturb the rest of the family!

Overview

Ysgubor Garreg translates to 'Stone Barn' we think it would be much more fitting if it were re-named 'Ysgubor Garreg Hardd' meaning 'The Beautiful Stone Barn'. The barn was purchased back in 1988 by the current owners, carefully converted to maintain many of its original features and sympathetically maintain the history that the building has. Now offering well maintained, flexible accommodation, with 3 bedrooms and an optional fourth bedroom, which is currently used as a study, it has a separate access, therefore ideal for someone working from home, especially if you have clients coming to the property as they will not disturb the rest of the household!

Located in a quiet rural hamlet, a five minute drive from Llanwrtyd Wells, the renowned smallest town in Wales!

The Property

As mentioned there are two entrances into the property, the first you approach leads into the office, study, fourth bedroom or games room! Whatever you may use the room for it's a great size. If someone is working from home, it enjoys being away from the living accommodation of the house and with a separate access is potentially ideal for clients visiting the property without traipsing through the main part of the house!

The main entrance to the property is the second door, this opens into the entrance hall, with wood flooring it is evident straight away the finish you are about to experience in the barn. From the hallway you have access into the office room, bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom offers a white suite with a shower over the bath and a decent sized airing cupboard. As you step into the kitchen you will really see how they current owners use this space as the heart of the property. Fitted again with wood flooring, with extensive exposed timers going right up to the vaulted ceiling over the dining area and with the exposed stonework it all adds to the charm of the barn. The kitchen is fully fitted with wood worktops to complement the surrounding timbers and has a modern finish but yet in keeping with the barn decoration. Off the dining area you have access to the two ground floor bedrooms, both doubles with a step down into them. The little touches such as the stone window sills all add to the character.

From the kitchen the wood stair leads to both the lounge and doubles back on itself and gives access to the master bedroom suite. The lounge, is a light, airy space again enjoying the stunning vaulted ceiling and exposed ceiling timbers. A wood burning stove adds a second source of heating and is certainly in keeping with the feel of the property. A large window overlooks the garden and enjoys views in the winter months through the trees to the hills in the distance. Off the lounge, you have the gallery overlooking the dining area, this is such a great feature of the barn as it really makes the space feel like one open plan living area! The master bedroom is a good sized double and benefits from a large walk in wardrobe, together with additional fitted wardrobes and a fitted en-suite shower room. This is a really super room, again with the vaulted ceiling, the a-frame timbers and ceiling beams it oozes charm. The en-suite has more recently been updated and offers a modern, white suite, with fully tiled floor, walls and has a large shower.

A charming barn conversion, which has been continually updated over the years since its original conversion. Home to the current owners for 25 years, it has many a story to tell but now its time for someone else to make some happy memories there!

Outside

The property is approached via a timber vehicular gate which open onto the gravelled driveway. The drive flanks the property and provides enough parking for at least 3 vehicles, also with a timber garden shed. The main garden area is to the east side on the property, overlooked by the first floor lounge, it is mainly laid to lawn with mature hedgerow boundaries and mature trees giving privacy. The house and gardens actually enjoy a better view in the winter months as the leaves drop off the trees!

The Location

The property is located in a rural position in the small hamlet of Cefn Gorwydd, which is located 2 miles from the town of Llanwrtyd Wells. Llanwrtyd Wells is a small town in Powys, mid-Wales, on the River Irfon. With a population of 850, it claims to be the smallest town in Britain. The town is on the A483 between Llandovery and Builth Wells and is located near the pass between the Tywi and Irfon valleys. Llanwrtyd Wells grew as a spa town around the Ffynnon Ddrewllyd, which still exists. 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 (Llanfair ym Mault) is a 20 minute drive away, located at the heart of Powys, Mid-Wales 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 playing host to the Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year, with a population of around two and a half thousand.
