Tenure: Freehold

An enchanting Grade II* country house set in about 10 acres together with self-contained holiday cottage, large range of listed stone outbuildings, leisure amenities, all set in beautiful Breconshire scenery.


SITUATION 
Aberllech sits in a rural location within the pretty Cilieni valley just a short distance from the small hamlet of Pentrebach. Located in an area dominated by agriculture where there is an abundance of wildlife, local flora and fauna and just 5 miles from the nearby well serviced village of Sennybridge which offers primary school, convenience stores, public house, health centre, etc..

DESCRIPTION 
Aberllech is a Grade II* listed 18th Century gentry house of three storeys with a range of contemporary outbuildings. It is reputed to have been built in circa 1780 for David Watkins who was high sheriff in 1786. This stunning family home was purchased by the present owners in the late 1980's when they carried out significant repairs to the roof, heating system and the wiring and the main house now offers some 7 bedrooms with 3 receptions retaining a wealth of character features.

First Floor 
From the principle landing on the first floor there is access to 2 large double bedrooms on the front of the house both having period fire surrounds with inset grate and exposed floorboards. There is also a nicely presented bathroom having a white suite comprising panelled bath, w.c. and wash basin. To the rear of the main landing is access to a further large bedroom currently used as first floor sitting area as well as a further family bathroom with roll-top claw-foot bath, pedestal sink, storage cupboard and a separate w.c. closet.

Second Floor 
The secondary landing at the rear of the house leads to the second floor and to a series of 4 further bedrooms; 2 of which have mezzanine study areas, a master bedroom suite having a large double bedroom with exposed timbers, doors to balcony and an en-suite bathroom having a panelled bath with shower attachment, w.c. and 2 wash basins. There is a further bathroom off this landing having a bath, shower cubicle and wash basin.

OUTSIDE 

Holiday Cottage 
Adjacent to the parking area is a self-contained holiday cottage which has ground floor access into a kitchen with steps leading to a first floor sitting area with an open planned bedroom arrangement and enclosed bathroom. This has proven particularly successful over the last years.

. 
There is an extensive range of traditional stone outbuildings which are Grade II listed, providing a wealth of storage space fronted by a cobbled forecourt. One of the barns was converted many years ago into a games room ancillary to the main house which also includes storage and w.c. closet.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS 
To the south of the property are large formal gardens which are mostly lawned whilst to the side is a lovely decked seating area incorporating a hot tub enjoying evening sun during the summer. A path leads to an upper terrace where there is a surfaced tennis court and riding arena and beyond a series of paddocks ideal for equestrian use.
