Centuries ago, a wise, grey-haired old estate agent once said "Location Location! Location!" These very wise words could not be more true when you take a look at Greystones, which is a detached, 3 bedroom bungalow offering sizeable gardens, distant views and is located on the edge of the peaceful village of Walton and adjoins the beautiful, open countryside. Situated halfway between the towns of Presteigne and Kington, locations do not get much better than this.

Greystones is a well maintained, 3 bedroom, detached bungalow located in the popular, semi-rural village of Walton, close to the Welsh/English border and surrounded by picturesque countryside and rolling hills as far as the eye can see.
Available to purchase with no upward chain, Greystones has been lovingly maintained by the current owner and is positioned in a good-sized plot with neatly maintained front and rear gardens, a tarmacadam drive allowing parking for numerous vehicles, which leads to an attached garage. Built in the mid 1970's, Greystones is situated in a small, quiet close made up of 3 other bungalows and offers stunning, panoramic views across the adjoining countryside and is a relatively efficient property to run and maintain owing to UPVC double glazed windows and external doors, as well as UPVC soffits, fascias and barge boards outside. Inside, the property has an entrance porch and then the hallway, which has separate doors opening into the spacious dining living room, the kitchen, the 3 bedrooms and the shower room. In addition, there are 3 storage cupboards also off the hallway, while to the rear of the kitchen there is a garden room that overlooks the rear garden and fields beyond and a useful utility room. Both the garden room and the utility room have doors leading outside to the rear garden.
Outside, as mentioned the plot, which is the largest on the close, is split into front, side and rear gardens. The front is largely laid to lawn with stone wall and wooden fenced borders. From the roadside, a gated entrance opens to the tarmacadam driveway allowing off road parking for at least 4 cars. To the left side of the bungalow there is a paved area, which accommodates the oil tank and a sizeable garden shed. Pet and child friendly, the private rear and right side gardens are both linked into one and are laid to lawn and pose as the perfect place to sit back and relax in, whilst enjoying the beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.
Rural, but by no means isolated, the property has the benefit of fibre optic broadband, ideal for those wishing to work from home and sits halfway between the 2 historic towns of Presteigne and Kington, which lies just over the border into Herefordshire. Both towns are approximately 4 miles from Greystones and offer a vast array of retail, recreational and educational facilities. Closer to home, the village of Old Radnor is found just over 1 mile away and boasts a very popular, old pub called The Harp Inn. From here breathtaking views for miles are on show, which makes for the most stunning backdrop when enjoying one of their well regarded cooked meals or a locally produced cider or ale. Slightly further afield is the market town of Knighton, which like Presteigne and Kington offers a vast array of facilities, but also boasts a railway station, which runs on the Heart of Wales line between Swansea and Shrewsbury.

Very much an agricultural community, the area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and is a haven for nature enthusiasts and those of an active disposition.
