The property is centrally placed within its plot set back from the B4388, which connects between the A458 and the A490. With a slightly elevated position, the property has views to Welshpool and countryside which surrounds the property.

Welshpool is just over 1 mile distant and nestles into the upper reaches of the Severn Valley near the border between Wales and England. The market town is surrounded by the rolling hills of Montgomeryshire and the unspoilt countryside in Mid Wales. Traditionally an agricultural service centre, Welshpool possesses the largest sheep market in Europe. The area is an ideal central base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and offers the opportunity to witness the historical significance and the many attractions of the borderlands. The Welsh Marches are steeped in history and all along the border castles and fortifications stand imposingly overlooking the surroundings. There are many activities and attractions in and around the area including Powis Castle, a steam railway and local museums together with rural pursuits including walking, golf, fishing, cycling, horse riding, quad trekking and fascinating wildlife.

The B4388 conveniently connects directly onto the A458 which connects to Shropshire's county town, Shrewsbury. The A483 connects in a northerly direction to Oswestry continuing onto the A5, and in a southerly direction to Newtown. Arriva Trains Wales operates services from Welshpool between the coastal towns of Pwllheli, Barmouth and Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury. Welshpool is served by Mid-Wales Airport which can provide chartered flights across England and Europe. London / Dublin can be reached in just 50 minutes, whilst Geneva takes just 1 hour 50 minutes.

The property was designed by its current owners and built in 2001. Nant Y Coed is of traditional brick construction set under a tiled roof. A detached bungalow with a well-planned layout, it offers considerable potential with a self-contained annex above, which could be used for overflow accommodation or provide an additional income stream for holiday lets or similar.
