Property Description

Full description

An exceptional detached period residence located in a peaceful situation, close to Hay-on-Wye. With extensive and well appointed accommodation and large landscaped gardens.

Description - This Edwardian property is a handsome and substantial residence found in a peaceful situation at the far end of the thirty acres loop, off Church Road and Cusop Dingle. In the early 20th century the location was known as Millionaires Row.
The house which is approached by a sweeping graveled drive is set back from the horse shoe shaped lane in a generous 0.75 acre plot. The lane is maintained by the council. There are splendid mountain and rural views to the front and back with the Radnorshire Hills to the front and the rolling Herefordshire landscape to the rear. From the front windows one can also see Hay Castle.

The present owner has extensively renovated the property whilst consulting interior designers over such matters as colours and lighting. There are subtle art deco accents which have been introduced as a result to match the unfussy Edwardian architecture. The owner, who inherited several mature trees including a rare Davidia Involucrata, the handkerchief tree, has also re-planned and rejuvenated the gardens by planting many classic roses with perennials and shrubs to complement. Many rooms have restored sash windows to two aspects. Bredon is recommended to anyone in search of an island of beauty and tranquility without having to trudge down muddy lanes or travel miles to the nearest town. Hay-on-Wye is reached via a short walk.

Location - Bredon is found at the church end of Cusop village, which is very closely connected to Hay-on-Wye known for its annual literary festival.Hay-on-Wye is known as the town of books. It has further boutiques, cafes, dental and doctors surgeries, primary school, post office, library, antique shops and galleries. There are several public houses and smaller restaurants. Hay offers a bustling market every Thursday. Main city services can be found in the cathedral city of Hereford, some 20 miles, and in Brecon, 16 miles away. Both offer independent education institutions and immediately around the area there is a wide range of leisure activities available from walking, cycling and riding as well as water sports at Llangorse. Being on the edge of The Brecon Beacons National Park this property is very well situated for those seeking a lifestyle change and to take advantage of these local amenities.
