Park Place was formerly two separate dwellings and retains identical entrances to the front. The property currently operates as a guest house on one side of the property whilst the other serves as a private residence. Located a short distance from Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the property offers the purchaser the opportunity to continue with its current arrangement, provide a multigenerational living option or the possibility to adapt into a significant family home.

Park Place has a wealth of period features throughout, typical of the Victorian era including cornices, dado rails, high ceilings and sash windows. The current guest entrance door opens into a spacious entrance hall with wooden staircase to the first floor and doors to a downstairs W.C./shower room and the principal reception rooms. The elegant sitting room has a tiled fireplace with decorative wooden surround and a bay window overlooking the front. Along the hall is a spacious dining room with parquet floor and French doors opening to the side garden. From the dining room is a galley-style kitchen with useful utility area and small porch. A door from the dining room leads to another hallway with a door providing access to the other half of the house and an archway opening into a pleasant south-facing lounge area with stone fireplace and a glazed extension overlooking the rear gardens. To the first floor is a family bathroom with electric shower over the bath and three bedrooms including two doubles, one with an en suite shower room and the other with pleasant views to the rear garden and surrounding countryside. The third bedroom is a single room with en suite shower room. Stairs rise to the second floor landing leading to two attic rooms with coombed ceilings, exposed brick chimney breasts and rooflights. To one side is a spacious bedroom with its own shower room and kitchenette fitted with modern high gloss base cupboards, inset sink and space for an undercounter fridge. To the other side of landing is another spacious bedroom with its own en suite shower room and dressing area. The current private residence, on the left of the property, has a separate front entrance door leading to an inner hallway with traditional tiled floor. The sitting room has a tiled fireplace and bay window overlooking the front. Adjacent is a well-proportioned, charming kitchen large enough to easily accommodate a dining table. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden cupboards with tiled work surfaces and decorative tiled splashbacks, exposed ceiling timbers and flagstone floor. An interesting inglenook accommodates a range-style cooker and an external door leads to the rear garden. At the end of the hall is the connecting door to the other part of the house. Interconnecting cellars serve each side of the property and are in good decorative order; one side is suitable as a snug/office/home gym and the other side is currently being utilised for storage. To the first floor of this side of the house is a family bathroom with separate shower and three bedrooms including two double rooms, one with double built-in wardrobes and a smaller third bedroom to the rear.
