Property Description

Full description

Penyrwtra, with its two acres of land, is set peacefully on a scenic ridge with outstanding views of the surrounding countryside. The hills of North Wales and Snowdonia can be seen from the highest point. A belt of woodland and two ponds have created a microclimate and haven for wildlife.

The architect owner has carefully improved and extended the former farmhouse and buildings over the years into a spacious 5 bedroomed home with the emphasis on natural materials, solar energy generation and high levels of insulation, reflected in the B rating in the EPC. A sheltered vegetable garden lies below an area of grassland and the detached stone barn provides potential for a variety of uses.

The house is located 3 miles from the village of Llanfair Caereinion and 11 miles from Welshpool. Shrewsbury and Chester are within an hour’s travel. Llanfair Caereinion offers a health centre, dentist, post office and well regarded bilingual primary and secondary schools.
