Approached from across the front drive, the entrance door opens into the hallway, which has separate doors opening right into the living room and kitchen diner, frontwards into the shower room and W.C and left into all 3 bedrooms. A further door also opens to a useful storage cupboard. The living room has ample space for a three-piece-suite and additional furnishings and has a focal point by way of a feature gas fire place, whilst a window provides a front aspect. All 3 bedrooms have space for a double bed and furnishings, with bedroom three also posing as a separate dining room as done so currently. Bedrooms two and three share similar frontward aspect, whilst bedroom one has a rear outlook over the garden. The shower room and W.C are currently separated, but could quite easily be knocked through as one to create a good-sized family bathroom. The kitchen diner is another sizable room, which has space for a set of dining table and chairs and is installed with a matching array of wall and base cupboards with fitted worktops over and an inset sink. The kitchen also has integrated appliances to include a gas oven and hob with an electric extractor above, as well as a fridge/freezer. From the kitchen a door opens into an airing cupboard, which houses the water cylinder, whilst a window and a further door lead into the rear conservatory. Light and airy with large windows allowing natural light to flood into the room, the conservatory overlooks the rear garden and has ample space for a seating suite or dining table. Currently there are base units along the one wall with a fitted worktop over and an inset sink unit as well as space and plumbing for a washing machine. From the conservatory a door leads out to the side passageway, which leads to the rear garden or back around to the front of the bungalow.

Outside

The front of the property is approached through iron cast gates and over a tarmacadam drive which provides parking for at least 3 cars. There is a mainly laid to lawn front garden with decorative flower beds and planted borders and a pathway which leads around to the left hand side of the property and out to rear garden. To the right of the bungalow the drive leads to the detached garage as well as doorway, which opens to the side passageway leading to the conservatory and rear garden. At the rear of the bungalow the west facing, private garden is raised, largely laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and small trees. In the right corner sits a glazed greenhouse, as well as doorway which opens into the workshop at the back of the detached garage. Installed with electricity, water and lighting, the workshop has a useful W.C, fitted work benches, shelving and has an opening, which leads through into the rear of the garage. The garage has an up and over door to the front and 2 windows to the side.

Still a thriving market town spear headed 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.

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 area's 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.
