2 3 1

Off the beaten track offering peace, tranquillity and the most spectacular south-facing views…..Sound idyllic? Your dream home? Situated at a height of some 970ft on the Sugar Loaf Mountain above the village of Llangenny and within 4 miles of the Powys town of Crickhowell. This pretty cottage and separate detached barns are located within the Brecon Beacon National Park and set in circa 13 acres. A wonderful, historic property which has been owned by the same family for just under 50 years. With a heavy heart, this much-loved retreat has been placed on the market for sale looking for the next family to enjoy this very special place. The stone cottage was believed to have formed part of the Sandeman family estate in years gone by and little has changed since it was built some 200 years ago. Enter via a stone entrance porch with flagstone floor into a dining room with an interesting fireplace housing a wood burning stove and original wood panelling. If you can tear yourself away from the spectacular views through the sash windows, continue into a cosy sitting room with slate fireplace housing a log burning stove, painted concrete floor and views across the valley. Continue to a compact, rustic kitchen with quarry tiled floor, a door to a shower room and into the rear hall/boot room. From the sitting room a staircase leads to the first floor with three generous bedrooms, two with feature fireplaces.

Turn right off A40 signed Llangenny. Before you reach Llangenny you will come to a steep right-hand turn on a sharp left-hand bend, (just before the bridge). Turn right and continue up a narrow, steep road. After a few minutes you will come to a crossroads with a white cottage in front of you. Turn left at the crossroads and continue up the road for about half a mile. You will pass a farm on your right and then go up a steep hill. Once you get to the top of the hill turn right at junction. The road is very steep and narrow with several sharp bends. You will pass farm buildings on your right; 40 meters further on turn left up a rough stone track marked with a bridleway sign. The road ends at this point. (If you find yourself in Pengilfach Farm you have gone too far.) The first part of the track is quite steep and then it levels out for about 100m before entering some woods. Drive up through the woods until you come to 2 metal farm gates. Drive through the gateways and follow the track on the side of the hill for about 30 meters and you will come to the cottage.

Step Outside

Located within the Brecon Beacons National Park, the property is approached up a stone track/bridleway, through 2 field gates and along a grass track leading to an area of hard standing with parking for several cars and entrance gate to the cottage. Immediately surrounding the cottage are the natural gardens of circa 1 acre which adjoin the fields and woodland, extending to just over 13 acres in all and affording the most spectacular views across the valley. A short distance from the cottage is a detached 2-storey stone barn which has been improved in more recent years and has the potential, subject to any necessary consents, to be converted to ancillary accommodation or holiday let/bunkhouse. There are no footpaths across the property, although there is a footpath on the rear boundary which continues up the Sugar Loaf Mountain.
