Property description

The front door leads into the shop element of the property with a lovely bay windows overlooking the street, a feature fireplace, exposed beams, wood panelling and doorway leading through to the dining room. The dining room is a charming room with original floorboards, fireplace, exposed panelling and three doors with one leading up the stairs, kitchen and into the lobby with a door leading out to the street. From the lobby stairs rise up to the living room with a fireplace, exposed stone wall, storage cupboard and exposed ceiling beams. The kitchen has a range of base units, space for an oven and exposed beams. From the kitchen there are a set of stone steps leading down to the cellar which has been made into a lovely reception room with flag stone floor, exposed beams, stone walls, a large Inglenook fireplace and a working well tucked in the corner. There is a door leading outside which in turn leads up a set of steps and access back onto the street.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, all with original floorboards, doors, exposed beams and two have fireplaces. Off the landing is the shower room which is fitted with a shower, WC and sink and a cupboard housing the boiler.

From the street there is access into the store which has a flag stone floor and a staircase leading to a blocked door which had former access into the kitchen. This could therefore be opened back up and incorporated into the main dwelling to give you further accommodation.


Buyers are advised the property is of mixed use with a small commercial element. There is a 15.8sq m area of commercial space listed as Retail Zone A. This has a rateable value of £2,200 per annum but this is not the amount you pay and there are grants available. Please see the VOA website or local authority for advise.


Located just off the centre of the sought after Market Town of Presteigne located in the Welsh Marches. This was the county town of Radnorshire and has become a local cultural centre, hosting two festivals. First, the oddly named Sheep Music Festival dedicated to contemporary music and the Presteigne Festival of Music and the Arts. The town is fortunate to have an award winning museum - The Judges Lodgings. Presteigne has a Primary and Secondary School, Leisure Centre and thriving community spirit with the popular market being held once a month. Further afield, the markets towns of Knighton and Ludlow offer a range of facilities, the latter being known for its restaurants and festivals. The nearest train station is in Knighton, a little under 7 miles away. The Cathedral City of Hereford, 20 miles offers greater amenities.

Parking and garden

On street parking is available nearby and there is an area of raised flower bed just off the store room to the side of the property.

Agents notes
