Overview - They say the days you spent in school were the best days of your life.... well why not go back to school and make some more happy memories!! School House is located in a rural area in the small hamlet of Llanafanfawr. The property was once the school masters house and as you cam imagine is attached to the old school which since closing has become the village hall and in used on the odd occasion for meetings in the community but its almost like you are detached as there are no full time occupants there!

The property itself was once a modest three bedroom cottage but over the last 3 years has been extended to provide large, spacious accommodation. Now offering 5 bedrooms in total over 3 floors, with a large master suite, with an en-suite shower room, balcony which has a great view, stunning oak kitchen, newly fitted pellet wood burning stove which runs the central heating, fitted solar panels which all adding to the appeal! The original cottage still has many of the original features and although not finished to the standard of the extension it does have many original features such as lovely high ceilings and stone window surrounds, giving the purchaser the opportunity to finish in the style they so wish.

Externally the property has a great amount of ground, with a large lawned garden, vegetable patch, large workshop which is attached to the house, enough parking for a dozen cars and a substantial detached agricultural building, ideal for a tradesman or someone with a hobby needing plenty of room! The property is currently let with the tenant moving out at the end of August and is available with no upward chain.

The Property - On entering the property you immediately step into the entrance hall which opens into the 'wow' room, the kitchen. Fitted with oak units the beautiful kitchen has ample storage, fitted work tops and is a typical welsh farmhouse style kitchen. With features such as the Belfast style sink and tiled flooring it boats character but with the comforts of the integrated dishwasher and other appliances it really is a super kitchen, just to the side is an 'old school' fitted pantry.... just in case you cant fit everthing in the mass of cupboard space! As all quality country properties you need a good utility room, currently in need of fitting with units, the plumbing and power are all in place to make this a very useful room , exactly what a property of this size needs! A very useful feature of the house is a separate access into a boot room, the current owners were farming so the separate access and space for kicking off the dirty wellies and drying the wet coats was perfect! To the side is a shower room and a home office with a great view!!

Accessed off the kitchen is the lounge, as you enter the room you are stepping back into the original cottage so the change in style is evident, with a window to the front and the pellet stove it is a cosy room and in turn leads to what was the original entrance hall. The hall has a front porch to the front garden, stair to the first floor and opens to the second reception room. The sitting room, with a wood burning stove again provides a cosy feel but has a light aspect with windows to two elevations.

Off the first floor landing are 3 bedrooms, all of which are doubles and a corridor has been created leading into the new part of the house where the old bathroom used to be. Off the inner landing is the main bathroom, with a pleasant white suite with a separate shower and bath, it is all very well presented! One of the best rooms in the house is the master bedroom, a large double, with ample wardrobe space the room is extremely light and has french doors which open onto the balcony..... wow, what a view! Not overlooked by anyone, this view is to die for! The master bedroom has a en-suite shower room, a modern suite and once again all very well presented. The third floor is one large open plan room, which could be a fifth bedroom, a great play room for children or a great hobby room, a lovely feature is the port hole window that captures the view as you walk up the stairs!

Outside - From the roadside you can access the house from two entrances, the first was once the original entrance when the property was still the old school masters house, this leads you over a concrete drive right to the front door, however since the new access has been created this has almost become redundant. The main access now opens to the large parking and turning area, enough parking space for a dozen cars, or a lorry as it has been used in the past. Off the drive is the agricultural building, a large steel framed building with a useful lean-to to the side it is ideal for storage, a large workshop or could be turned into stables if so needed, a really substantial building suitable to a number of uses. From the parking area you walk through a pedestrian gate along a path towards the house, the gardens are large and mainly lawned with a vegetable garden to the side. From all of the gardens you have a stunning south facing view to admire as you walk towards the house!

Just to the side of the house is an attached workshop, of block construction with a rendered finish, a very impressive building, with power and lighting connected and windows that are even double-glazed! Through which you again have a great view!!

The Location - The property is located in a rural position, 3 miles from the small village of Beulah. The village, although small offers a great community spirit, with a petrol filling station, shop and a public house at the heart of the community. The village has a good road network between Builth Wells, Llandovery and Brecon. The market town of Builth Wells (Llanfair ym Mault) is located at the heart of Powys, Mid-Wales in what is arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. Builth Wells lies within the Historic Boundaries of Brecknockshire, situated on the banks of the River Wye and the River Irfon The Upper section of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells is famously known for playing host to the Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year. With a population of around two and a half thousand the positive impact this has on many local businesses located within Builth Wells is immeasurable. Builth Wells is ideally located in regard to beautiful surroundings with the Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons both just a short drive away.
