The Property

Rathlin is a traditionally built, link-detached bungalow located in a quiet position in the historic market town of Knighton (Tref-Y-Clawdd), found directly on the Welsh/English border within the picturesque Teme Valley.

Available to purchase with no upward chain, Rathlin was built in the mid 70's and is situated towards the edge of town within the popular Millfield Close development, which is made up of a number of similarly aged detached and semi-detached bungalows.

Lovingly cared for over the years, but now in need of modernisation, internally Rathlin offers 2 bedrooms, a kitchen diner, a living room, a hallway and a shower room. Outside, there is off road parking for up to 3 cars, an attached garage and a pleasant, largely laid to lawn rear garden. To the front of the bungalow are distant views across to Ffrydd Wood.

A delightful property, which offers the convenience of the high street facilities within a short commute and access to the glorious countryside and rolling hills which surround Knighton just a mere stones throw away, Rathlin could be an ideal home for first time buyers or downsizing purchasers to move into and put their own mark on!

The Location

Rathlin as mentioned is found approximately 0.5 miles 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.
