Located at the foothills of the Black Mountains with breathtaking views from its private partly walled garden is this beautifully presented family home in the centre of the popular village of Longtown. Rarely do homes like Glynneath House enter the market, a truly delightful property with quality fixtures and period features that include, exposed stone walls and stone window sills, high ceilings, three ground floor working fireplaces, feature fireplaces in some bedrooms and sash windows, in a glorious setting. This period property which dates back to circa 1881 and has been in the same ownership for nearly 17 years, has a wealth of character with a complimentary blend of contemporary comforts and providing flexible and spacious accommodation. To one side of the property with its own separate entrance, is the two storey annexe which we believe was historically used by a local tailor/dressmaker. The downstairs is currently used as a utility/boot room with a separate shower room and a stone staircase that leads to the upstairs which is currently used as an office and separate storage room (the annexe can be also accessed via the dining area of the main house). With further alteration, this could be used to accommodate a relative/guest wishing to have their own space, a holiday let or even to run your own business from home (subject to the necessary planning consents). The entrance hall has a decorative tiled floor and stairs to the first floor. There are two lovely reception rooms, one with an open fire and the other with a multi fuel stove and French doors that open onto the beautiful gardens. The impressive open plan family kitchen/dining room has a range of fitted cupboards with integral goods, a Villeroy and Boch sink and French doors to the gardens. To the other end of this spacious room is the dining area with space for a large family table in front of the Clearview multi fuel stove which has a back boiler. A utility/laundry room provides further fitted cupboards with Belfast style sink and stable style door to the garden. The rear hall provides access to the integral garage. On the first floor the landing has access to the roof space which we are advised has the potential to provide further accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents. Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

  • Step Outside

The property has a driveway which provides off road parking for several vehicles infront of the spacious garage which has remote controlled door and has useful storage above with reinforced floor.
