The Property - Approached over the private drive the front door opens into an entrance hall which has separate doors leading right into the attached garage and frontwards into the breakfast kitchen. A sizeable room which has space for a set of table and chairs, the breakfast kitchen is installed with matching wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an insert stainless steel sink. There is also space and plumbing for a free-standing fridge/freezer and cooker with fitted extractor hood unit above. The kitchen houses the gas fired boiler, has a window to the side and separate doors leading into the dining room and living room. A light and airy room owing to a skylight, windows and French doors to the side garden, the dining room is a superb entertaining room and offers ample space for a set of dining table and chairs and has features in the way of exposed ceiling timbers. The living room is found at the rear of the property and enjoys dual distant aspects as well as having sufficient space for a three-piece-suite. A gas, coal flame effect fireplace with granite hearth and surround poses a focal point in the room, while separate doors open left into the hallway which leads to the bedrooms and frontwards into the useful rear study which enjoys similar distant rear views as the living room and subsequently leads out another door to the rear balcony and garden.

The hallway allows access through a loft hatch into a useful loft storage area, as well as separate doors opening into three bedrooms and the bathroom. Bedrooms one and two are both double bedrooms with space for additional furnishings, while bedrooms three is a good-sized single bedroom with again space for extra furnishings. Bedroom two has a frontward aspect over the drive, while bedrooms one and three boast similar beautiful distant views beyond the rear garden. The bathroom is installed with an attractive suite of a P-shaped bath with a fitted glazed shower screen and electric shower over, while a vanity unit has an inset wash basin and fitted w.c. The bathroom is complete with fully tiled walls, a window to the front and a door opening into an airing cupboard with slated shelving and housing the water cylinder. Potentially this sizeable airing cupboard along with the water cylinder could be removed completely with the addition of a new combination boiler in the bungalow and replaced with a separate shower unit if required.

Oustide - Outside the property as previously mentioned is approached from the close over a private tarmacadam drive which leads to the attached garage. The front of the property is fairly low maintenance with a paved area and steps, flower beds and separate gates either side of the bungalow leading along to the rear garden. The font has well-defined brick walled and hedged boundaries and lighting.

The private rear garden is worthy of particular note with large sections of lawn being interspersed with small specimen trees, mature shrubs and complemented by extensive well stocked floral and herbaceous flower beds and borders. A raised decked balcony found at the back of the property poses as perfect relaxing area to watch a warm summers sunset after a long day, while underneath doors open to a large, useful storage area. At the bottom of the garden is a paved patio area, perfect for entertaining on within the warmer months of the year, while for horticultural enthusiasts there is plenty to get those green fingers stuck into and helped by the additions of a greenhouse, rain water harvesters and a useful garden shed. The side of the bungalow is mainly gravelled for ease of maintenance which is split by a paved path which at the end leads to French doors opening into the dining room. The gravelled path continues around, passing a mature beech tree and along the side passage back through the gate and around to the front of the property again.

The Location - Bramlea as previously mentioned is tucked away in the corner of a quiet, close knit close approximately 1/2 a mile from the main street, which hosts a variety of local groceries, retail shops and family run businesses. Knighton offers a vast amount of facilities and services varying from a butchers and a supermarket, a primary school (which is located approx only 500 yards from the property), a railway station, a post office, a selection of banks, a variety of sports clubs which includes a golf course, a builders merchants, regular bus routes, a selection of public houses and restaurants, a leisure centre (also only approx 500 yards from the property), a livestock market, bakeries and a library. The town features a 'fortnightly farmers' market' and also benefits from having a thriving artistic community to include the Writers Group, a number of painters, art galleries, potters and craftsmen. 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 traveller a glimpse of the more remote area's 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, other attractions that visitors to the town often call upon is the famous 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.
