Overview - We are pleased to offer for sale this lovely property!! If you ever fancied the 'good old country life' but enjoy being in a community and fairly close to the town, then Pengarreg is the place for you! Located a mile from the Spa town of Llandrindod Wells, Pengarreg is a charming, character cottage that dates back to the early 1800's that has been extended by the current owners to provide spacious, improved and beautifully presented accommodation. Offering four double bedrooms, with a large lounge and open plan kitchen/dining room, do not be mistaken that this is a 'pokey little cottage', far from it! With beautiful gardens, an orchard, and land extending to 2 3/4 acres in total, it really is a great property!

A super home with some quality land, a barn and all in a convenient location to the town!

The Property - Purchased by the current owners in 2001 the property has been extensively renovated and extended over the years. It now bears little resemblance to the small cottage it once was! The accommodation is immaculately presented and the extension has made the property a very comfortable size with four double bedrooms, with a bath and a shower room, large lounge packed full of character, a stunning kitchen/dining room and a conservatory that overlooks the gardens! All of the plumbing and wiring has been upgraded together with a modern central heating system and double glazing installed so all the hard work has been done!

From the front, you step into the entrance porch, this access is very rarely used, in fact has almost become redundant and is being used as a store room for the grandchildren's toys! The current owners always access the property from the parking area and into the rear of the house. Here you walk over a decked seating area which is under cover and with up lighting into he conservatory. Built when the property was extended in 2002 the room is fully double glazed with a lovely outlook over the gardens, in turn the room leads through double doors into he kitchen. This really is an impressive room! The owners were aware that the normal conception is that cottages can be a little on the dark side so have tastefully fitted an off white kitchen, with fitted worktops, under lighting and cream tiling to really brighten the room. Features such as the range cooker and tiled flooring add the character to the kitchen and the room is a really great part of the house! Being open plan to the dining area and with the outlook at the rear its the room that the owners feel they spend most of their time!

To the front of the property is the main lounge, originally two rooms that have been opened up to one impressive space. Typical of the character feel you would expect to find in a cottage! With a wood burning stove, pine flooring, exposed beams and the original front door it boasts character but with the renovation works, with features such as the down lighting and double glazing really making it a comfortable family room, which would be great in the evenings to relax in front of the fire! The cottage has a useful utility room just off the inner hall and in turn this leads to the downstairs shower room, again impressive, all updated and fitted with a white suite and cream tiles giving a light, clean feel.

The first floor accommodation does not fail to impress, they'll certainly be no arguments over who's got the biggest bedroom as there are all really good sized doubles! The rooms to the front being in the original cottage do have the character, with the oak flooring and really are lovely rooms, one with fitted wardrobes, both of which have low level windows to the front, here the owners have fitted velux windows over them to allow light to flood in. The rooms at the rear of the property are again doubles but these have a fantastic outlook over the rear garden and fields. If you were to have horses or sheep in the field, and these are the first things you want to see when you wake up in the morning then choose one of these rooms and you'll be spoilt! Off the landing is the main bathroom, recently refitted and and has a beautiful white suite.

To summarize a fantastic house, with character, in great order, with landscaped gardens, an orchard, land and a barn.... what more could you wish for!

Outside - Externally the grounds are equally impressive as the house, from the roadside large double vehicular gates open to the ample parking and turning area which is found to the side of the property. This area is flat and provides parking for at least 5 cars and currently has a motor home and a space for a works van. The immediate gardens around the property have been beautifully landscaped and again have been maintained to a high standard, with flowering beds and borders in place, mature plants and shrubs, together with the pond make it a really lovely setting. Off to the side of the garden in the 'man cave!. A really good work shed and store, with plenty of space for the tools and equipment to keep the garden as it looks today. From the rear of the property steps climb to the main garden area, this is mainly a lawn, being flat is a really great area for the children to play and at the rear is a large vegetable garden... all ready to grow you own fruit and veg!

To the side and rear of the house is the land, extending to approximately 2 3/4 acres in total. Off to the side of the garden, through an old solid wood gate is the orchard. Planted with fruit trees and left as a wild garden, its tucked away out of sight. This could be greatly enhanced but even as it is offers a lovely quiet area but due to its size and location to be so much more! The pasture land is split into 2 main fields, the first you enter into is just under and acre and the second slightly larger field is just over 1.5 acres. Well fenced and has been grazed by sheep, the land is generally flat with a slight slope but offers a good quality of pasture. A great feature is the detached timber framed, sheet clad barn. Located by the gate that opens between the two fields and with a hardcore area to the front, the barn offers a great storage area for the machinery but again offers massive potential if you wanted to house a pony or use as a hay barn in the future.
