Reputedly dating back 250 years Rhydlydan is an extended and refurbished period farm house with spacious accommodation across three floors. Situated on the edge of the popular Severn valley village of Aberhafesp, near Newtown, the property has extensive outbuildings suitable for a variety of uses (subject to planning) and garaging. The property has been sympathetically extended in a contemporary manner juxtapostioned against the period charm of the original house. The interior is charming, with staggering views to the Welsh hills, featuring exposed brick, beams, handmade quarry tiled floors and an inglenook fireplace.

A house for all seasons there are two main entrances, the formal one opens, from an oak porch, to the staircase hall to the front and the second is access via the gated gravel courtyard to the rear. The heart of this house is the superb dining/living/kitchen space with full height doors leading to the spacious decked terrace to the front of the house and feature log burner set within a brick chimney. The kitchen is fitted with contemporary handle less units, integrated appliances, range cooker and granite work top. There is a picture window over looking the pond and gardens to the side to the side and ample space for sitting and dining furniture. Leading from the kitchen is the formal dining with large period beam to the ceiling, handmade quarry tiled floor and latch door to the cellar. The study faces the front with a period cast iron fireplace. The main feature of this home is the spectacular dual aspect drawing room with central log burner within an inglenook fireplace.

The large utility/boot room, pantry, cellar and W.C completes the downstairs accommodation.

With exposed brick and stone walls the staircase rises to the first and second floor. An open tread staircase leads to the staircase leads to the light flooded landing. The principle bedroom has full height windows and bifold doors to two sides and a balcony which enjoys rural views to the front. The ensuite bathroom is fitted in white with a separate dressing room.
