Offering superb frontward views across the town and the surrounding countryside beyond, Roseville is situated on one Knighton's most sought after addresses, Presteigne Road, owing to its convenient distance from the town centre with its many independently owned shops and facilities, which lies less than 400 yards from the property and the primary school.

The kitchen alike the dining room is also positioned at the rear of the house and has quarry tiled flooring, a window to the side and a feature brick inglenook with fitted range cooker. Separate doors from the kitchen lead into the sizeable pantry and into the useful, rear utility room, which has doors off leading into the side lean-to, the store an downstairs toilet. The side lean-to has doors opening outside to the front and rear gardens.

On the first floor, a door opens out to a delightful balcony area, where beautiful views across the town can be enjoyed, whilst on the landing a loft hatch leads into attic and separate doors open into an airing cupboard, 4 double bedrooms and the house bathroom. Bedrooms one and two are at the front of the house and offer distant outlooks down the Teme Valley, whilst bedrooms three and four are found at the rear of the house. All 4 bedrooms have feature fireplaces and wash hand basins, whilst bedroom four has a door to the rear leading into what was once the fifth bedroom, but now-a-days poses as a dressing room or potential en-suite. The bathroom is currently installed with a coloured suite of w.c, wash hand basin and a panelled bath.


At the front of the house is a sweeping tarmacadam drive which rises up from the road and provides parking for 3 vehicles. There is a front lawned area as well as decorative flower beds and well-defined hedged borders. Steps lead from the drive up to the entrance door, whilst to the left side of the house a path leads to the side lean-to and the to the right side a pathway leads through a wicket gate and around to the rear.

South-west facing, the back garden is largely laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and trees as well as well-defined hedged and fenced boundaries.

The Location 

Presteigne Road is found approximately 400 yards from the main street which hosts a variety of local groceries, retail shops and family run businesses. Knighton offers a good amount of facilities and services including a butchers and a supermarket, a primary school, a railway station, a post office, a bank, a variety of sports clubs which includes a golf course, a builders merchants, regular bus routes, a selection of public houses, cafés and restaurants, a leisure centre, a livestock market, bakeries and a library.

The town features a fortnightly 'farmers market' at the local community centre and also benefits from having a thriving artistic community including The Writers Group, a number of painters, art galleries, potters, craftsmen and a light entertainment society. Still a thriving market town spearheaded by local organisations, Knighton is a peaceful town offering breath taking, picturesque scenery and fully accommodates the laid back, relaxed lifestyle that many potential purchasers will be looking for. Described as the ‘The Gateway to Wales’ this market town is situated on the English/Welsh border. Mostly in Powys, partly in Shropshire it lies on the River Teme and is surrounded by hills giving the traveller a glimpse of the more remote areas accessible nearby.

The town's Welsh name is Tref-y-Clawdd meaning “Town on the Dyke”. This is a reference to Offa’s Dyke, which runs through the town, built by the Saxon King of Mercia to define his border with Wales. Every year hundreds of tourists and walkers visit the Dyke (which in its entirety runs from Prestatyn to Chepstow) and the Offa’s Dyke Centre adding a real vibe to the town during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months. While here, other attractions that visitors to the town often call upon is the famous Space Guard Centre, which offers people the chance to view the wonders of the universe in a fun and understandable way while also raising public awareness of the threat of asteroid and comet impacts and the ways in which they can predict and prevent them. Larger towns near to Knighton are the medieval market town of Ludlow, 16 miles East, and the Victorian Spa town Llandrindod Wells, 19 Miles South West. Both are easily accessible via road or rail links and offer further recreational, educational and leisure facilities.
