Tyn-y-Wern is a striking period farmhouse in Wales with well-proportioned accommodation under a slate roof with a stone façade and brick surrounds. The house is laid out in a traditional manner with the drawing room and dining room off the main hallway, as are the terrific formal room with views of the garden, and a smaller second sitting room.

The kitchen is an excellent size with lots of room for a breakfast table, while upstairs accommodation on the first floor comprises four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom; stairs lead up from the landing to the attic which can be used for storage space or, as it is currently, as a study.

Outside is a beautiful timber-clad barn which offers a good deal of potential, while the gardens are of some note, and a sun terrace extends from the kitchen and offers views across the valley. The rest of the land is ideal for livestock.

Tyn-y-Wern is situated in a valley in Radnorshire near Dolau, which has a primary school and a railway station on the Heart of Wales line. Llandrindod Wells is a former spa town with a wide range of facilities just over nine miles away. Ludlow is 26 miles.

The guide price is £499,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01584 873 711 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
