Property Details

In the little village of Norton, very close to Presteigne, we have this unique, Victorian, Grade II listed property. The Terrace was built by Sir Richard Green-Price of Norton Manor Park, in 1871 for his estate employees. Ravenlee, formerly The School Room, was the school for employees’ children and the staff lived in the beautiful cottages on either side.

The property is now a fusion of period character and modern convenience, with original features, wood floors with underfloor heating, a luxurious bathroom and a 3kw Biofuel stove in the main reception room.

The property has three levels with two bedrooms and two reception rooms, kitchen-diner, bathroom, lobbies front and back and two substantial outbuildings.

The front entrance lobby, with the Victorian children’s coat hooks still on the walls, opens through the original front door into the main reception room. This room shares the beautiful, arched windows with the second floor reception room. A staircase connects these rooms, running next to the arched windows that are the property’s finest asset. This second living space, with its lovely view to the West, over fields and woodland, could be paradise for a writer or artist.

The main bedroom is on the mezzanine; it has two bronze skylights, exposed rafters and plenty of storage in the eaves cupboards.

The first floor corridor has a run of built-in cupboards. The bathroom has a large bath and a separate, large shower.

On the ground floor there is also a large kitchen-diner with a rear lobby opening onto a courtyard with parking for one car. Crossing the driveway at the rear you will find steps up to the Terrace and Garden, with a large, wooden studio to one side and an original stone outhouse to the other. The studio is a flexible, multi-purpose space with skylights, a toilet and sink, utility and workshop space in addition to garage space for one car.

It would make an excellent artist’s studio, an office, base for a small business or even a guest room.

There is a small, gravelled Terrace next to the garden. The sunny garden is at present surrounded by a fine-mesh, bespoke and gated enclosure, suitable for cats, small dogs and small children!

There are lovely walks in all directions from the village, including access to Presteigne, Offa’s Dyke and local woodlands.

Council area is Powys and the council tax band is C
