3 5 3

A superbly restored former School House located in an elevated position above the historic Clydach Gorge with beautiful scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

A splendid conversion of a former school offering spacious and interesting accommodation with much character. This unique house combines contemporary living, with a generous open plan kitchen/living/dining room, together with separate, more traditional reception rooms all leading off the central wide hallway. The flexible layout, offered by both ground floor and first floor bedrooms and bathrooms, provides ample space for either a family to enjoy or perhaps, Bed & Breakfast accommodation or an annexe (subject to any necessary consents). The house has many special and unusual features including the original wood block flooring, wooden doors, glazed interior panels, an original fireplace and wood burning stoves. The en-suite Master Bedroom is situated on the ground floor with doors opening onto a private decked terrace, ideal to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or perhaps, a late evening night cap. On the first floor is a study/reading area located off the landing with doors onto a roof terrace with artificial lawn and affording views towards open countryside. Along the landing are three further bedrooms, one with a separate study area, a family bathroom and useful storage. The size, space, flexibility and character of this superb conversion needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.
