One of mid Wales’ most stunning Victorian mansions with a rich industrial and political dynasty is being sold for £1 million.

Summerfield Park, overlooking Llanidloes, was built for flannel industrialist Thomas Jones before it was bought by Edward Hamer, who had established the famous Hamer Welsh meat wholesalers.

It has been owned by the family since, including one of the country’s leading barristers and leading politicians Lord Emlyn Hooson QC.

“The term ‘rare opportunity’ can often be overused. But the chance to buy such a stunning property with so many historic connections in mid Wales is really a rare one,” said Andrew Turner, a Partner at Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd, who are selling the property on behalf of its owners.

Described as one of the finest houses in the area, the six-bedroom mansion, with four large attic rooms, sits on a hillside in its own parkland, complete with a separate one-bedroom courtyard cottage, gardens and grounds leading to 13.2 acres. It also has a stable block which could be converted for holiday lets, subject to planning approval.
