The Property

Introducing 1 Warden Terrace, which is a well presented, 2 storey, semi-detached cottage situated in the popular market town of Presteigne (Llanandras) found close to the Welsh/English border, which in 2018 was again named as one of the best small towns to live in by the Sunday Times.

Originally built in 1649, this characterful property has undergone vast refurbishment by the present owner in more recent years and offers a pleasant blend of traditional and contemporary features, from exposed timbers, flag stone flooring and feature fireplaces, to a newly installed 'Worcester' Combination boiler (2020) and UPVC double glazed windows.

1 Warden Terrace uniquely combines both country and town living by offering the rare opportunity of having a home with equestrian/small holding facilities with pasture land totalling approximately 1 acres, split into 2 parcels, as well as being conveniently located approximately 1/4 of a mile from Presteigne's vibrant town centre with its many independently owned shops and facilities.

Inside, the property is made up of 3 bedrooms, 1 reception room, 1 bathroom and a superb kitchen diner. Approached across the gravelled driveway, the entrance door opens into a hallway, which has stairs rising to the first floor accommodation and seperate doors leading frontwards into the kitchen diner and right into the light and airy living room, complete with a feature fireplace with inset wood-burning stove. The impressive, open-plan kitchen diner has a range of matching wall and base units, a 'Belfast' sink, ample space for a set of table and chairs, a feature fireplace with inset 'Rayburn' stove and a door opening outside to the rear garden. On the first floor, a landing area gives way to the modern, sizeable family bathroom and the 3 bedrooms, which includes 2 doubles and a good-sized single. Bedrooms one and two enjoy similar distant views to front and feature cast iron fireplaces, while bedroom three overlooks the garden and paddock to the rear.

The outside is worthy of particular note. There are landscaped gardens to the front side and rear of the property, to include lawned areas, flowered beds, a useful garden shed and a further storage shed, a raised gravelled seating area and a further elevated decked seating area located at the rear of the property, which is accessed over paved steps and makes for a fantastic entertaining space within the warmer months of the year, while enjoying distant frontward views. The gated, gravelled driveway provides off road parking for a number of vehicles, while a further gateway accessed from the roadside, opens into the first paddock and half way up the field, another gateway opens into the second. The 2 paddocks have a combined acreage of approximately 1 acre. A water connection is also available in the paddocks.

Overall, 1 Warden Terrace is sure to suit a variety of buyer types, owing to its convenient location, well presented accommodation and beautifully landscaped gardens and paddocks. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate the quality this wonderful house showcases.
