An imposing Edwardian former manse dating back to 1904 in an elevated location overlooking the village of Llandinam. Situated in grounds of 2.9 acres (1.17 ha).
Constructed as the manse for the nearby chapel by The Davies Estate of Llandinam, it was built to an exceptionally high standard with influences from the Arts & Crafts movement with many of the windows having stained glass inserts together with mouldings and carvings around the property. The entrance hall is richly panelled, there are limestone and wood floors and all the rooms are well proportioned. The current owners have been residents for about 30 years and improved and extended the property in 2008 to provide a very comfortable family home which has been done to a high specification and internal inspection is highly recommended. The property is approached by a sweeping driveway to a turning circle with formal gardens, vegetable garden, walled courtyard, workshop/stabling 17m x 10m and pastureland.
Llandinam is a popular village conveniently located between the market towns of Newtown (8 miles) and Llanidloes (6 miles) which offer a good range of shops, amenities and facilities, 2½miles from the larger village of Caersws with its railway station, Shrewsbury 40 miles and the coastal university town of Aberystwyth 36 miles. The area is a popular tourist destination with the Clywedog Reservoir, Elan Valley Dams & Reservoirs, Hafren Forest, Plynlimon Range, Powis Castle and the Welsh Borders all within easy reach.
