Property Summary

This former Mill building stands in a generous garden plot amongst the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The conversion offers beautifully presented accommodation in the form of 5 bedrooms all of a good size, 4 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, a kitchen and a useful utility room. The main accommodation is complimented by a second outbuilding converted into a holiday let cottage which now offers the new buyers the opportunity to continue the established letting business that has been created by the present owners.

A stone paved pathway leads to a rustic open canopy porch, in-turn providing access via a solid oak door into the hallway, where there is attractive wooden flooring, stairs leading upwards to the first floor and a useful W.C. closet consisting of a w.c., wash basin and partial wall tiling. To the right hand side of the hallway is a lovely sitting area, with glazed screen and French doors opening onto the paved area to the front, several feature stone formed recesses and finished with an attractive wood block floor finish.
