19th century post office and butchers is put up for sale

A prominent Montgomeryshire period house that was once home to a butcher’s shop and Post Office in the 19th century has been placed on the market.

Ger Y Nant at Meifod, near Welshpool, Powys is a well-known landmark in the historic village.

The Grade II listed building was built in the early 19th century and in around 1870 a single storey extension was built on one side when the then owners, the Griffiths family, opened the butcher’s store. It later became the village Post Office.

The three-storey, four-bedroom property offers an opportunity for a new owner to put their mark on it, within the guidance of its Grade II listed status, having been owned by the vendor for 40 years and in need of some refitting.

“Ger Y Nant is a well-known property for anyone travelling through Meifod. It’s an imposing property with large rooms typical of period properties in the 19th Century,” said Rob Hudson, a partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who are selling the property on behalf of the owner.

The property is on the market for £299,950.

“The outlook from the rear is over the countryside the nearby hills, with lawns, vegetable gardens and an orchard to the side and rear makes it an ideal family home,” said Mr Hudson.

The property comprises two reception rooms, a kitchen, breakfast room, utility room, shower room with separate toilet, four bedrooms, a bathroom and separate shower.

It also has outbuildings and a large drive and parking area.

“The location and size of the property, together with the gardens and orchard, makes it a real opportunity for someone looking for a home in the countryside and who is looking to undertake some refitting,” added Mr Hudson.
