A late 18th-century hall in need of modernisation has been put up for sale, providing a rare opportunity to renovate and extend such a large rural property.
Plas Newydd at Windmill Lane, near Welshpool, Powys, is situated in 17 acres of land that includes an orchard, farmyard, and 16.79 acres of pastureland. The original servant bells are even still in situ.
Rob Hudson, a Partner at estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd said that while the interior of the property needed modernising, it had many original features could be retained.
“Plas Newydd is a large four-bedroom home in a stunning countryside setting. While the property needs modernising, it provides a new buyer with a chance renovate the hall back to its original glory. It’s size and location make it a good family home with plenty of outdoor space, including 17 acres of land,” he said.
“The land could be utilised for equestrian or other livestock purposes.”
He added: Constructed of brick under a slate roof, the property retains several of its original features such as ceiling cornices and pictures rails in the reception rooms, the mosaic quarry tiled floor in the hallway, the stained glass windows in the enclosed entrance porch, and the servants bells in the kitchen.
“The house itself requires general modernisation throughout and there is ample scope to extend.”
The property is on the market for offers over £750,000.
The hall contains two reception rooms, kitchen and back kitchen dairy, four bedrooms and a bathroom.
It’s located just half a mile from Welshpool, a busy market town along the main A483 trunk road and a railway station connected to the Cambrian Railway, leading to Aberystwyth, the West Midlands, London and the North West.
The road network is also good into the West Midlands, the North West, North and South Wales.
“Demand for large properties with land outweigh those available on the market and so we believe Plas Newydd will receive a lot of interest from people looking to renovate and move into such a property with good road and rail connections,” added Mr Hudson.
