Introduction

A rare opportunity to acquire an exquisitely presented 3 bedroom former vicarage with an attached 2 bedroom cottage. A wonderful combination of beautifully presented period Victorian accommodation and bespoke elegance. Both properties benefit from their own private parking and garden areas, all set on the edge of a picturesque Mid Wales countryside village yards away from the River Wye.

The Old Vicarage as purchased by the current owners in 2000 and then completely refurbished to its current form. A wealth of traditional features such as stone, cast iron and tiled fireplaces, corniced ceilings, stained glass windows, hardwood staircase and timber window shutters, are tastefully complemented by the modern convenience of bespoke handmade fitted kitchen cupboards, recently installed bathroom and en-suite facilities, Karndean flooring, double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.

Attached to the main house, and accessible if desired through an interconnecting doorway, is the former servant's quarters which have been carefully converted into Orchard House. This comfortable stone and brick built property with its own separate access, parking and garden, is currently let as self-contained holiday accommodation but could easily be an extension to the main house if further space was required.

The two dwellings offer exciting accommodation to suit all tastes and requirements. A wonderful opportunity for extended family or continuing the strong, successful business which has been developed over recent years.

The properties are offered with the option of fixtures and fittings and established business of Vicarage Holiday Homes'.
