Available to purchase with vacant possession and no upward chain, No.45 Market Street is a beautifully restored and maintained link-detached, period property located a mere stones throw from the vibrant town centre of Knighton (Tref-Y-Clawdd).

Circa 18th century, this attractive, unique, Grade II Listed dwelling has been lovingly renovated by the current owner over recent years leaving no stone un-turned and offers spacious accommodation to include an entrance hall, living room and sizeable kitchen diner on the ground floor, while on the first floor a landing gives way to 3 bedrooms, a family bathroom and a useful study/dressing room, which could also pose as a 4th bedroom. From the first floor rooms the house presents pleasant views over the neighbouring rooftops and towards Kinsley Wood. By no-means large, but perfectly adequate the property benefits from that all important outside space in the way of an incredibly private, low maintenance rear courtyard garden which interestingly backs onto the old castle wall. No.45 Market Street does not offer private off road parking, although found to the front of the property is un-restricted on street parking and also at the other side of the street is a large un-restricted parking area.

In what will be someone's perfect home, No.45 Market Street is simply ready for any new occupiers to move in their belongings, put their feet up and sit back, relax and enjoy the quality of life this delightful property and location offers. Overall this well presented, one-of-a-kind period property, still retains a wealth of character features while offering a pleasant blend of contemporary finishings and is positioned in a convenient, near town centre setting (approximately 400 yards) directly on the English and Welsh border.

The Property - Approached from the roadside pavement, the wooden front entrance door opens into the hallway. Straight away you get a sense of the character and quality within the property with exposed timber beams, tiled flooring, carpeted stairs rising to the first floor accommodation and separate ledge and brace doors opening left into the open-plan kitchen diner and right into the spacious living room. The final door opens to a useful understair storage cupboard. A good-sized room, the kitchen diner is the hub of the house and is installed with quality crafted, matching wooden wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an inset stainless steel sink unit. Integrated appliances include an electric oven, a gas hob with extractor hood unit above, dishwasher, washing/dryer machine and a fridge/freezer. This neatly appointed kitchen is complete with part tiled walls, spot and under wall unit lighting, a breakfast bar area and a window to side. Open-plan this sizeable room has ample space for a set of dining table and chairs or seating suite. There is tiled flooring throughout and two windows providing a frontward aspect. A wooden, partly glazed doors leads out to a side passageway and pavement. On the opposite side to the house the living room is once again another sizeable room which has plenty of space for a three-piece-suite and is complete with exposed timber beams and a feature fireplace which is crying out for a wood-burning stove. A window allows a front aspect.

On the first floor a landing area has separate ledge and brace doors allowing access to the family bathroom, the dressing room/study and the 3 bedrooms. A door at the end of the landing leads out to the private courtyard garden. Sharing similar aspects all 3 bedrooms are found at the front of the property and present distant views over the neighbouring rooftops towards Kinsley Wood. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are located at alternative ends in the property and both have plenty of space for a double bed and additional furnishings, while positioned in-between, bedroom 3 could accommodate a double bed, but would be best suited to a single. Bedroom 1 does also offer the benefit of a useful built-in cupboard. The family bathroom has been neatly upgraded and maintained consistent with the rest of the property and is installed with an attractive matching white suite of w.c, wash basin, panelled bath and a corner shower unit with a glazed shower door. The bathroom is finished with part tiled walls and tiled flooring, spot lighting and a window to side. Situated at the rear of the house is the dressing room/study, which although lacking a window does benefit from 2 built-in cupboards. This useful multi-purpose room could pose as an office for those wishing to work from home and could potentially accommodate a bed and be used as a fourth bedroom if required.

Outside - Alike many modern, upside down houses these days, the garden to No.45 Market Street is accessed from the first floor landing. Incredibly private this low maintenance garden is entirely decked or paved and offers a peaceful escape from the rest of the house and the hustle and bustle of town centre living. By no-means large, but perfectly adequate, the courtyard garden is a huge bonus to the property allowing that all important outside space to relax/entertain on within the warmer months of the year and interestingly also offers the feature of backing onto the old castle wall.

The Location - Market Street as previously mentioned is found approximately 400 yards 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, 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, 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.
