Welshpool, SY21


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 7
Traethllawn is probably one of the finest houses of its era built in Welshpool. It was built around 1850 and is constructed of predominantly stone under a slated roof with a later single storey brick extension. Attractive oak panelled entrance vestibule, spacious reception hall, dining room, drawing room, sitting room, conservatory, kitchen, shower room, study & utility room on the ground floor. 2 further floors upstairs with 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. No onward chain

Outside Description

Outside and forming part of the later single storey extension is a large split level double garage with greenhouse. The property is accessed via its own private tarmacadam drive way leading up to a large parking and turning area with separate walk way leading from the driveway up to the front door. Within the beautifully landscaped gardens stands a former stone and slated detached cottage, which is now used for garden storage. The gardens comprise attractive terraced front gardens laid to lawns with a variety of urns, flower beds and a mixture of mature ornamental trees. The lower lawn was formerly a grassed tennis court and could be converted back with ease. The rear and side garden are mainly laid to lawn with flower borders consisting of trees and shrubs and is enclosed by a high brick wall ensuring an element of privacy for the property.

The sale of Traethllawn does therefore provide a very rare opportunity to purchase a substantial period gentlemen's residence of such great charm and character set in attractive gardens. INSPECTION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


Traethllawn is situated to the south side of the well known border market town of Welshpool. Welshpool is known as the gateway to Mid-Wales and in turn the gateway to the Midlands from Wales. It lies just over the Shropshire Powys border and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside and boasts the well known and highly regarded Powys Castle gardens and grounds.

Welshpool is also ideally situated for commuting with easy access routes to Oswestry, 15 miles and Shrewsbury, 19 miles and on to the M54 and the Midland road networks.

The town itself has a good range of amenities and is a well established commercial centre with a substantial livestock market and a strong industrial base. There are a good range of shops and leisure facilities and the area has become noted for its wealth of Pheasant Shooting and other country pursuits.

The property is situated on the south side of the town and is within a short walking distance to the centre of the town for shopping and social facilities.


From Welshpool proceed along Berriew Street passing Morrisons Supermarket on the left hand side, go past the next turning on the right, Oldford Estate and just after the pedestrian crossing turn right up the driveway to Traethllawn
