Countryside farmhouse home complete with two luxury holiday lodges

The chance to buy a spectacular Mid Wales countryside home complete with two stunning holiday lodges and the potential for three converted barn dwellings has come on to the market.

Penclun, nestled in the Powys countryside at Y Fan, near Llanidloes, is a perfect ‘lifestyle’ opportunity, particularly at a time when many people are looking to move to homes with outdoor areas and land.

Transformed farmhouse and two luxury lodges

The three-bedroom detached former farmhouse has been transformed by its current owners over recent years, including the addition of two luxury holiday lodges all situated in five acres of land.

“Penclun is ideally suited for someone looking to not only live in a beautiful stone house with amazing views over the Welsh landscape, but to have income from the holiday accommodation and, potentially, develop the stone bards into three additional holiday cottages,” said Andrew Turner, a Partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who are acting as joint agents for the property.

“The barns could be converted into other forms of accommodation, such as home offices or a studio, subject to planning permission.

“What sets Penclun aside from other properties is the potential. It has already been renovated and refurbished to a high standard but with the associated land and property any new owners could create a real ‘lifestyle’ opportunity.”

The main farmhouse has three bedrooms, large areas of living and dining space, exposed wooden beams, modern kitchen and conveniences.

Courtyard, wildlife gardens and terraced area

It also has a large courtyard, natural wildlife gardens, paths over bridges and a terraced area.

The property sits in rolling Montgomeryshire hills, close to the Cambrian Railway at Caersws as well as main trunk roads such as the A470 and A483 with good links to North and South Wales and the West Midlands and North West of England.

The nearest town is Llanidloes, a Charter market town close to the Llyn Clywdog reservoir and Hafren Forest where the source of the rivers Severn and Wye are.

Located in the stunning Welsh countryside

It is also a short distance from the Mid Wales coast, as well as being in the centre of rural Wales with all the walking, cycling and outdoor activities available.

“This is what makes it an ideal holiday destination as well as a home,” added Mr Turner.

From the gated entrance, the driveway runs with pastureland and woodland on the right-hand side, leading to the two lodges called The Firs and Larches (The Larches will require some finishing works by the new purchasers).

Both are identical and have been completed to the highest standard having a Covered Entrance, Open Plan Kitchen/Lounge/Diner, two Bedrooms both with en-suite shower room and en-suite bathroom.

An alpine, mountain lodge feel has been achieved with the lodges positioned to enjoy the breath-taking views with The Firs offering a hot tub and both having an outdoor covered seating area for barbecues.
