Overview - Holters are delighted to offer perspective buyers the unique opportunity to purchase this exciting development located within the heart of rural Mid Wales, amongst stunning scenery and open countryside as far as the eye can see.

Located in a rural, scenic position in Mid Wales and close to the residential hamlet of Llaithddu, overall this wonderful opportunity to develop a cluster of traditional country buildings into modern 21st century homes, whether it be permanent occupation dwellings, holiday cottages or second homes, is an exciting project from any serious developer.

Peaceful, but certainly not secluded Upper Llaithddu Farm is set in an elevated position and enjoys panoramic views over the surroundings and fronts onto a council maintained lane. The A483 which runs between the vibrant towns of Llandrindod Wells and Newtown is found approx. 2 miles away and provides easy access to an extensive range of educational, recreational and retail facilities in both towns.

South west facing Upper Llaithddu Farmhouse also benefits beautiful, unspoilt frontward views over the surrounding Welsh countryside.
