Almeley House is a Grade II listed village house built by Lord Foley as the Agent’s house for his Newport estate. The property is built of painted brick beneath a slate roof and enjoys fine views out over the Brecon Beacons.
Grand reception rooms with large sash windows identify the property’s 18th century origins, in fact almost all period features remain, including shutters, sprung floors, fine fireplaces and a magnificent staircase, although modern living has been fully catered for in various refurbishments, particularly the bespoke kitchen. Upstairs are six bedrooms and a family bathroom, and there are also good cellars.
