The property has a sizeable, largely laid to lawn front garden and a neatly kept, private west facing rear garden which overlooks the adjoining fields.

Fully equipped to cater for all, this gem of bungalow in our eyes is a must view!

From the hallway a door to the left opens into the open plan living dining room which has ample space for a three-piece-suite and set of dining table and chairs. Windows to the front and rear provide dual aspects, while there is also a feature fireplace with an insert wood burning stove on top of a slate hearth.

The bathroom is finished with tiled walls, a chrome towel radiator and a window to the front.

Still a thriving market town spear headed by local organisations, Knighton is a peaceful town offering breath taking, picturesque scenery and fully accommodates the laid back, relaxed lifestyle that many potential purchasers will be looking for. Described as the The Gateway to Wales this market town is situated on the English/Welsh border. Mostly in Powys, partly in Shropshire it lies on the River Teme and is surrounded by hills giving the traveler a glimpse of the more remote area accessible nearby. The town's Welsh name is Tref-Y-Clawdd meaning Town on the Dyke. This is a reference to Offas Dyke, which runs through the town, built by the Saxon King of Mercia to define his border with Wales. Every year hundreds of tourists and walkers visit the Dyke (which in its entirety runs from Prestatyn to Chepstow) and the Offas Dyke Centre adding a real vibe to the town during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. While here, another attraction that visitors to the town often call upon is the Space Guard Centre which offers people the chance to view the wonders of the universe in a fun and understandable way while also raising public awareness of the threat of asteroid and comet impacts and the ways in which they can predict and prevent them. Larger towns near to Knighton are the medieval market town of Ludlow, 16 miles East, and the Victorian Spa town Llandrindod Wells, 19 Miles South West. Both are easily accessible via road or rail links and offer further recreational, educational and leisure facilities.
