Property description

Perhaps one of Brecon towns most recognisable and unique properties, the Old Postern Gaol and former Fire Station offer an abundance of potential and scope for complete renovation and restoration. The property currently offers grade II listed accommodation in the form of a three bedroom dwelling with 2 reception rooms, bathroom and kitchen all situated above what was the town jail with its cells and paraphernalia still in situ. Adjacent to the house is the former Brecon fire station most recently used for horticultural storage and offering approximately 608 sq ft (56.5m2) internal floor area. The property is connected to the house via an internal door. Outside, the property has the benefit of a garden area to the rear and side which leads down to the banks of the river Honddu and has pedestrian access from the Postern.

Altogether, the property as a whole offers great scope for complete renovation and refurbishment into a variety of different uses subject to the necessary consents. A fantastic project to refurbish one of Brecons most iconic and historic buildings.
