The first floor has an imposing landing with oak flooring and beamed ceilings. Two bedrooms are directly off this landing and have ornate fireplaces. Beyond are four further bedrooms, and the back stairs continue up to the top floor which has a further two bedrooms and a box room.

Outside the very pretty gardens are a feature of the house, and recorded in the Royal Commission survey of historic gardens. The lawn on the south side is partly paved with steps down to the croquet lawn. Beyond is the mature garden; a stream runs through a wooded area which has a great profusion of bluebells in the spring and the lake is surrounded by wild flowers in the summer. There are two good paddocks beyond the house. The land comes to just under ten acres.

Treburvaugh House is located around four miles south west of Knighton, and commands excellent views over unspoiled countryside and the Upper Lugg Valley. Knighton and Presteigne provide good shopping while Ludlow and Hereford are also within easy reach.

The guide price is £750,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01432 273 087 or visit
