Unique Principal House with Cottage and Plantsman’s Paradise

One of Montgomery’s finest period residences, with striking open views to the Shropshire Hills, together with its own cottage, has been launched to the market.


A Plantsman’s Paradise

The Grade II* listed Clawdd Y Dre is known to date back to 1590 and so boasts a history reflecting the fabric of the house. This six bedroomed property for sale in Powys comes with a three bedroom beautifully presented cottage – ideal for family or guests.

Situated on Lions Bank, on the South Eastern ramparts of the Old Town Walls, Clawdd Y Dre is blessed with, in the words of head of sales at Balfours, Alistair Hilton, “a plantsman’s paradise.” This includes mature trees and hedging, fruit trees, an oak gazebo overlooking views stretching five miles across the valley to the Shropshire Hills.

The highlights internally include original Tudor Rose oak panelling from the dissolution of Chirbury Priory in the 1500s. Briefly the property comprises of reception hall with three principal reception rooms off, study, conservatory, adjoining kitchen and breakfast room, plus pantry. The master room is en-suite, while two additional bedrooms on the first floor share a bathroom. The second floor provides a further three bedrooms, with a third bathroom. A cellar is to be found below stairs.

Alistair adds: “This is a very unique property with much going for it. The town is vibrant, with obvious pride and opportunity for a fabulous lifestyle reflected not only in the independent shops and businesses, but the magnificent surrounding countryside spanning the border; yet only 22 miles from Shrewsbury and not much further to Ludlow, Welshpool is eight miles.”

A double garage and off street parking are part of the package which comes with a £750,000 guide price. Call Balfours Estate Agents Shrewsbury office on 01743 353511.
