Full description

An attractive and well appointed former granary conversion, less than a mile from Hay, offering recently extended character four/five bedroom accommodation with the benefit of charming south west facing rear garden enjoying distant views.

The Wain House is a former granary building situated on a small, high quality development of period stone barns that were converted approximately 15 years ago. The houses have the benefit of a courtyard setting, but The Wain House has its own private rear garden enjoying south westerly views with sunsets. The property has been converted to retain as much character as possible and there are striking features including natural stone walls, revealed beams and timbers, and high quality internal fittings which give the house a special appeal.

The property is situated less than a mile from the edge of Hay-on-Wye and is well placed for its amenities and with good access onto the main road network. Hay-on-Wye sits at the north eastern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park in an area of high scenic value, just below the Black Mountains in the Wye Valley. It is famous for its secondhand bookshops and annual literary festival in the spring. It contains a number of restaurants, boutique shops, antique shops, a cinema and has a host of activities. Brecon (13 miles) and Hereford (23 miles) offer more in the way of shopping facilities with good rail and dual carriageway communications from Abergavenny, approximately 25 miles to the south.

The Wain House has charming accommodation, more in the style of a period house than a barn conversion and the new rear extension with its bi-fold doors and views over the garden is a particular feature.
