Every village has a property that stands out or is instantly recognisable, and in the village of Guilsfield, near Welshpool, Powys, one of those is The Square, positioned centrally within the heart of the community.
With a rich history, the Grade II listed stone and half-timbered property offers four bedrooms over three floors, a wealth of exposed beams and original features and comes with a detached stone and slate barn as well as a stone and slate garage with a first-floor studio.
“The Square is arguably one of the most iconic houses within the village,” said David Jones, a partner and chartered surveyor at Morris Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd who are agents for the property.
“It sits next to the village church and within a short walking distance of the local shop, doctor’s surgery, pubs and some amazing countryside with a wealth of public footpaths.”
Guilsfield is a highly sought-after destination in north Powys, with excellent communications into Shropshire and the West Midlands, the North West of England and North Wales, along with London, including a direct train from Shrewsbury. It also has good local independent and state schooling.
It is believed the site and property was originally a pub in the village.
“It’s definitely one of those properties that you have to see to be appreciated. In addition to its charm and uniqueness, it has a large and private garden with established and mature trees and shrubs.
“The detached stone and slate barn and the double garage with a first-floor studio makes it ideal for someone who works from home and wants an office or workspace. And with superfast fibre broadband in the village, it has some of the best broadband access that many urban areas would be jealous of.”
“Alternatively, and subject to planning, the barn could be converted into self-contained accommodation.”
The Square is being marketed at £500,000. It includes a dining room, lounge, kitchen and breakfast room, study, breakfast and living area and utility rooms, in addition to four bedrooms (one with en-suite).
