Former gamekeeper’s cottage is more than just a bungalow

A former gamekeeper’s cottage on the historic Cyfronydd Hall estate in Mid Wales has been transformed into a magnificent dwelling with stunning countryside views.


The three-bedroom oak-framed property at Cyfronydd, near Welshpool, Powys, called Tan-y-Boncyn has been virtually rebuilt to provide stunning accommodation as well as spacious garden grounds.


Originally built as the gamekeeper’s cottage close to Cyfronydd Hall, the owners rebuilt it seven years ago to create the modern bungalow it is today.


Rob Hudson, a Partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman, said the property was ideally suited for someone wanting to enjoy the Montgomeryshire countryside.


Stunning views over the Montgomeryshire countryside


“It has a magnificent sun, living and dining room in one with open views through a large, glazed surround. The room has a wood burning stove as the main feature together with oak flooring and air conditioning. But it’s the views over the adjoining countryside to the hills beyond that really sets this property apart,” he said.


“The kitchen has granite work surfaces and includes an electric range cooker, American style fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The sitting room also benefits from a wood stove set into a recess.”


The property, which is on the market through MMP/NL for £650,000, includes three well-sized bedrooms and a utility room.


There is also a three-bay steel frame building complete with electric, lighting and sliding doors that could be utilised for a range of uses.


Amenity woodland and 3.9 acres of land 


The grounds include a small amenity woodland and grass paddocked areas, reaching for around 3.9 acres.
