Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Chapel House dates back to the 18th Century and was enlarged in the 1930s in the Arts and Crafts style. The house is spacious and offers light and airy accommodation with good sized rooms and large windows.
The drive leads up to a graveled forecourt.
The front door and porch give access to a large reception hall with the main stairs, off which the accommodation is arranged.
The reception rooms include an impressive Drawing Room, with garden room off, and Dining Room with adjoining Pantry. Across the hall is the kitchen with oil fired Aga and Breakfast room with laundry beyond.
The first floor provides a principal bedroom suite, 4 further bedrooms, one with en suite shower, dressing room and 2 bathrooms. There is also a first floor Library with a French window directly onto the garden terrace and an unusual Sun room with wonderful views across the valley.
The secondary stairs lead to the second floor with further bedroom accommodation and bathroom which could easily form a separate flat if required.

The drive carries on up to the cottage which offers accommodation including a dining hall, sitting room and kitchen. From the dining hall there is a staircase to the landing giving access to three bedrooms and a bathroom. From the main bedroom there is an en-suite shower room and a further room which could be used for a dressing room or box room.

To the front there is a patio, ample parking and a turning area. Beyond this there is a garden laid mainly to lawn with surrounding borders and a timber garden shed.
Chapel House Cottage also includes a bothy split into two sections of stone construction with small paddock above. The cottage has previously been let although it could provide a very comfortable holiday retreat.

Chapel House is situated in the wonderful Upper Wye valley and has extensive views over the river to the historic Aberedw Rocks. The house is conveniently situated for Builth Wells, 4 miles away and offering good local facilities and the Royal Welsh Showground.
The towns of Hay-on-Wye, renowned for its annual Literary festival and numerous bookshops, and Brecon with its Cathedral are close, as are the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. The regional centres of Cardiff and Swansea are about 1 hour away. Local sporting facilities include fishing on the River Wye, and golf at Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells.

The forecourt is flanked by clipped Yew hedges with an ancient magnolia tree to one side.
The gardens and grounds surround the house and comprise mature areas of garden including lawns, terracing, an elevated lawn and walled patio off the first floor library above the forecourt. Beyond the drive is a wilder area of garden with an enchanting secret garden and ornamental pond which leads on to a path through a beech copse to an ancient mound with a yew tree on top. Near is the tennis court, which requires resurfacing and outbuildings suitable for stabling and storage. Above these is a paddock. On the other side of the house a private gate leads to the adjoining small church of St Mauritius.
