A handsome house in a glorious position with possiblities for enlargement
Pwll Court is an elegant mid-19th century house attached to, yet private from, a set of earlier farm buildings. Situated amidst stunning countryside near Crickhowell, it is still well within an hour's drive of Cardiff Approached down a long drive to a gravel parking area, the house is entered through a double front door beneath a wrought iron and glazed porch into a large hall with decorative tiled floors and tall double doors to both drawing and dining rooms. These are well proportioned with fine period features such as shuttered windows, plate rails, sprung floors and fine fireplaces (one with a fire box, the other a solid fuel stove). Off the drawing room is the conservatory with quarry tiled floors and dominated by a magnificent vine. The service wing has the utility room, kitchen with a range of fitted units and the breakfast and sitting areas. The adjacent studio, currently used by a successful artist, could be connected to the house. • A handsome staircase leads up from the hall to a wide landing with doors off to four good bedrooms, two having wash basins and 2 bathrooms, 1 being ensuite. A secondary staircase leads up to the large attic which has enormous potential for conversion to additional bedrooms.The gardens are principally south and east facing with wide formal lawns flanking the driveway and dotted with a variety of mature trees and shrubs including American Plane, Cedar, Scots Pine and stunning rhododendrons which are a riot of colour in the spring. A top lawn was the former tennis court which could be reinstated.
