Ground level finds the dining room with two sash windows and traditional fireplace; across the hall is the sitting room, currently used as an intimate reading room with French doors opening to the garden.

The first floor also provides a double bedroom with en-suite facilities and a further three bedrooms are to be found second floor, with a family bathroom.

Located in Aberbechan, the property sits some seven miles from Montgomery and is within easy reach of Welshpool and Shrewsbury.

Outside there is a large, well-stocked and private garden surrounding the property and an integral garage with room for a workshop.
