Property SummaryThe flexibility of this unique home, measuring circa 368 sqm/4000 sq ft (total floor area), offers the option of a spacious family home or multi-generational living, with the option of creating an annexe with its own entrance door and ground floor en-suite bedroom. This contemporary home has been created by the present owners to provide a home which accommodates the needs of modern day family living, with much thought given to the design and flow, utilising space and maximising light.
To the front of the house are two entrances, the first is an entrance door, set under an attractive oak porch with a slate pitched roof, which leads into the rear hall with slate flooring and ample space for boots and coats. The rear hall provides access to a reception room with window to the front elevation, W.C., utility room and en-suite bedroom. This area could, offer a separate annexe for family/guests or incorporated into the main house, as it is now. To maximise the light, there are two skylights in the rear hall with the bedroom, en-suite, W.C. and utility room all having windows overlooking the rear elevation. From the rear hall, there is also access to the kitchen/breakfast room and family room.
Enter through the main entrance porch via a covered porch with pitched roof and windows to both sides into the welcoming entrance hall which is tastefully presented in neutral tones and wooden flooring which continues through to the study on the left. The study has an attractive, ornate fireplace and large window to the front. To the right is the main family room with attractive fireplace housing a wood burning stove and dual aspect windows flooding the room with light. A door leads to stone steps down to the cellar, presently used as a music room. From the main reception area continue through to the breath-taking spacious, comprehensively fitted kitchen/ dining room which has been designed as both a functional space and family area. The contemporary cupboards with contrasting worksurfaces provide the aesthetics whilst the functional integral appliances, including 2 freezers, 2 ovens plus a microwave oven, inset halogen hob set into the central island with extractor over and hot/cold tap make this the perfect working and entertaining kitchen. The kitchen/dining room is complemented by bifold doors opening to the terrace and garden. From the kitchen/dining room are doors to a modern sitting room, again with glazed doors opening on the terrace and garden, enjoying fine views across fields towards open countryside. The sitting room has light wooden floors, coving and downlighters and is decorated in neutral tones throughout. Centrally situated on the ground floor is a reception hall/snug, a perfect place to sit and enjoy a book or watch television. Painted wooden stairs with balustrade rise from the reception hall to the first floor landing, where there are four bedrooms all benefiting from en-suite bathrooms. The principal bedroom suite, with superb views towards open countryside, benefits from a dressing room and en-suite with freestanding bath and walk in shower.
Whilst creating a modern family home, the owners have incorporated some features including fireplaces, coving and wooden floors as a nod to the original Victorian dwelling which occupied the site.
Enter through large wooden gates, which provide both privacy and security, to a large turning and parking area. To one side of the driveway is a wooden shed with electric and power. A paved patio adjoins the house and borders the driveway. Upon entering the rear garden, just a short distance from the house is a spectacular raised decked area with wooden pergola, shower and hot tub, a perfect leisure area to enjoy relaxing and entertaining outdoors. Continue to the rear garden where there are stone terraces adjoining the sitting room and kitchen/dining room and beyond, an expanse of level lawn bordered by open fields to the rear. The views from the rear garden are superb and provide a picturesque view of the surrounding countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The house and gardens occupy a generous plot of 0.4 acre.
