The property market was top of the conversation tab a recent meeting between Partners and staff at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd and Montgomeryshire MP, Craig Williams.

Mr Williams met the MMP/NL team at their Llanidloes office. He was on a fact-riding tour of local businesses.

"It was good to meet Mr Williams to discuss the property and lettings market in the area and how coronavirus regulations and impacted on our business," said Andrew Turner, a Partner at MMP/NL.

Unprecedented sales in the local housing market

"The current reduction in Land Transaction Tax and Stamp Duty is seeing unprecedented sales in the housing market, but we must also look ahead to 2021 and how the regional market will be affected by the ongoing coronavirus situation."

Mr Williams said: "The housing market has been very busy as well as the rental market. The sector has faced many challenges with lockdown and house sale rules but I know they're working very hard at the moment. Fantastic local business."

The "unprecedented" success of an online household content auction during the coronavirus situation has led to a Mid Wales and Shropshire estate agent and auctioneers to announce another.

Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd said the success of the online sale involving contents from a Powys property demonstrates the appetite for people to view and bid for items online.

Another collective online auction will now be held on 9 December 2020 and entries are now invited.

Tony Evans, a Partner at MMP/NL, said: "We held a contents auction of Dolforgan Gardens, in Kerry, near Newtown, and it was met with an unprecedented level of interest with the household contents including some interesting furniture, silverware, books and general contents receiving a lot of enquiries from purchases from the locality and much further afield.

All lots were sold online

"The competitive bidding received for in excess of 240 lots and resulted in total clearance of all lots with some quite exceptional prices on some items."

Mr Evans added: "With several lots of brassware, furniture and books selling for in excess of £1,000 per lot, we realised that there is a high level of interest in this style of auction, particularly when there is a need for social distancing and reduced travelling.

MMP/NL has now organised a further sale of antique furniture and good quality items of interest and decorative and architectural interest.

This collective sale will be conducted via an online auction on the 9th December and entries are now invited.

Countrywide marketing of the online auction

Mr Evans said: "The mixture of marketing and promotional activities undertaken by MMP/NL will ensure the sale receives an excellent level of visibility to interested parties and a viewing day will allow purchasers to inspect prior to bidding should they so desire.

"As a company we have the pleasure of acting on behalf of many thousands of clients throughout the Mid Wales and borders region and will use our team's knowledge and expertise as leading local auctioneers to assist our clients in the sale of any household items which they feel could be better enjoyed by new purchasers.

"As we are in such unprecedented times many people are instructing us on the sale of their homes and we can offer them a valuable service by helping them achieve the best price possible for any better quality furniture and household items they no longer need."

Provides sellers and buyers with more opportunities

He added: "We feel that by the use of an online auction that this will give our clients the opportunity to offer their items for sale in the widest possible way with the possibility that bidders could offer on their items from all over the world Indeed in our previous auction we had an excess of 300 registered bidders for that sale."

"It is also an opportunity for purchasers to buy that unusual item in readiness for Christmas."

Croft Y Perthi at Llandewi, near the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells in Powys, is being sold through Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd for £1million.

Stunning property

“It’s a stunning property,” said Andrew Turner, a Partner at MMP/NL. “Not only does it include an amazing barn conversion as the main accommodation, but it also has a three-bedroom annexe that could utilised as a holiday let.”

Mr Turner said the property could provide a new owner with a lifestyle opportunity, working from home while having an income from the holiday let or stables and other outbuildings.

Stone barn conversion

The main residential accommodation is within the stone barn conversion. It retains many of its original features and includes large amounts of living space, as well as kitchen, sunroom, galleried landing and bedrooms.

The annexe, a three-bedroom chalet bungalow, includes a lounge/dining room, kitchen, utility room, three bedrooms and shower room.

Annexe suitable for a holiday let

“The annexe would make a perfect holiday let with additional income. The property’s location three miles from the village of Llandewi is perfect for walking, cycling, horse riding and other outdoor activities in the Welsh countryside,” said Mr Turner.

The property has gardens surrounding it, including dog kennelling, a large chicken run, four stables, tack room, a workshop and utility room with garage/store and a three-bay open carport.

Anyone looking for an off-grid home with five acres of stunning Mid and North Wales countryside, complete with a renovation project, will be checking out Cerniau, a stone cottage three miles inside the Dyfnant Forest.

The property, near Llangadfan, Powys, has already undergone significant renovations, with a new roof, oak framed windows and front door, offering new owners the chance to take the work forward.

“Cerniau is a perfect property and location for someone wanting to live off-grid and has a blank canvas renovation project,” said Bryan Jarman, a Chartered Surveyor at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd, who are selling the property.

“It’s location in the Dyfnant Forest allows the new owners privacy in what is a stunning part of the Welsh countryside.

“The current owners have undertaken a significant amount of work already and this makes it perfect for someone to continue to style the detached stone cottage to their own taste. An adjoining timber framed garage extension could also be converted into living space, subject to necessary planning permission.”

Mr Jarman added: “Perhaps one of the main features of the cottage is the large inglenook fireplace. It also has vaulted ceilings with oak beams on the first floor.”

The property has views over the adjoining Welsh countryside, including nearly five acres of its own land. It is being sold for £200,000.

On the site of an old stone barn a spacious workshop and store have been erected and the property has gardens surrounding it.

It has a private septic tank installed and permission has been obtained by the current owners for a borehole for water.

A former dairy farm with over 48 acres of land close to Welshpool, Powys has been put up for sale, complete with idyllic farmhouse.

The Hollies at Pool Quay is set in open countryside with views towards the well-known Rodney’s Pillar and has the Montgomery Canal passing through its land.

Three-bedroom farmhouse and 48acres of pastureland

“The smallholding includes a detached three-bedroom farmhouse that needs some internal modernisation. The level pasture land extends to 48.24 acres and has a range of farm buildings,” said Richard Evans, a Partner at MMP/NL.

“The farmland is all located within close proximity to the farm buildings and farmstead with every parcel having roadside access. The Montgomeryshire Canal passes through the land north to south. The land is all level in nature and forms some most useful blocks of productive and fertile pastureland,” added Mr Evans.

A range of farm outbuildings

The farm buildings include a galvanized iron barn, seven-bay framed cubicle and cattle shed with adjoining hay barn and a former milking parlour. There is also a former chicken battery house.
