Fronllwyd dates back to the 1840's and has the benefit of many of the features and architecture from the late Georgian and early Victorian eras. The house is a large property but has a wonderful welcoming and homely feel to it with well proportioned rooms and large windows offering plenty of light and delightful views from all aspects. Fronllwyd sits in an enviable elevated position above the market town of Welshpool and is surrounded by its own land. It is accessed over a private driveway with electric gated access and offers all of the benefits of a truly rural existence whilst being within walking distance of the town centre amenities.
The internal accommodation is generous, well laid out and beautifully presented. There are a number of access doors to the front and side of the property, but the main entrance door gives access to a large entrance hall from which access can be gained to the main reception rooms, being the sitting room, drawing room, formal dining room and study. Of particular note for modern day living is the spacious kitchen breakfast room which offers a great informal gathering area next to the aga with a fantastic adjoining garden room with glorious views. There are a further range of ground floor rooms such as boot room, pantry, wine store room, utility room and side entrance hall. Fronllwyd also has extensive cellarage ideal for further wine storage and general storage. The main staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first floor landing. The first floor comprises 7 bedrooms of which 5 are en-suite, together with a separate shower room, linen room and laundry room.
The Coach House is a two bedroom property situated to the rear of the main house in the courtyard offering excellent supplementary accommodation comprising comfortable spacious living room with Inglenook housing wood burner and well fitted kitchen on the ground floor, and bathroom, 2 bedrooms and an office on the first floor. This additional housing is ideal for use as an annexe for family members, or as an extra income if let out as a holiday cottage.
Fronllwyd is approached through Llanerchydol Park and in turn via its own long private driveway continuing up the hill towards the house. The gardens are beautifully landscaped containing an array of perennial beds, shrubs and trees with a large area of flat lawn spanning the front of the property, an ideal space to play games, entertain or to or place a marquee for weddings or parties.
The indoor heated swimming pool, which during the summer months heats itself via the solar panels, has a shower and changing rooms, and an adjoining party/barbeque room. Large doors open onto a terrace between this complex and the tennis courts.
The land is a most notable feature of the property, being laid to pasture and ideal for horses, ponies and domestic livestock. It is divided into six enclosures surrounding the property and all have the benefit of water supplies. There is a lake in the field adjacent to the drive which offers great angling and wildfowling opportunities.
There are an interesting selection of adaptable outbuildings including garages, stores, a workshop and stables but of particular note is the original stable block in the courtyard which has some impressive features such as the Herringbone stone flooring and heavy box doors. Behind this block the vendors have built a large American-style barn with three large loose boxes, and an all-weather floor. In recent years, National Hunt horses have been bred from here. This building has great potential for a number of uses as the stabling can be removed to create a large space.
Fronllwyd is thought to have great potential for conversion into a boutique hotel and/or leisure complex which offers a viable alternative to a residential dwelling.
