Full description

The house is listed as a formal late Georgian House with well detailed stonework and having a 20th Century two storeyed addition on the eastern side. It provides spacious living accommodation with three reception rooms and a large kitchen to the ground floor plus a cellar.
It would be an ideal B&B or a place to occupy for home/work space.

There are five bedrooms on the first floor together with a family bathroom together with two further bedrooms and a second bathroom on the second floor. The annexe provides self contained one bedroom accommodation ideal for family members or for letting purposes. The annexe has recently been modernised but the main house does require some upgrading to modern day expectations.

The grounds lie to the south and west of the house and extend down toward the river which flows through the village. Again there is scope to formalise the grounds to previous conditions, being enclosed on all sides behind stone walls.

The house occupies a prominent roadside location on the edge of the village of Erwood in the beautiful Wye Valley some 6 miles south east of Builth Wells, 14 miles north east of Brecon and 12 miles west of Hay-on-Wye. Erwood has a popular pub/restaurant and a village hall. The surrounding countryside is renowned for its great beauty with wonderful riverside and country walks.
