The Property

Pantawel or for non-Welsh speakers 'Peaceful Hollow' is a truly superb rural smallholding, located in a quiet rural position yet easily accessible back to the village of Cilmery. The impressive country residence offers a detached four-bedroom stone house, which is beautifully presented throughout. Located adjacent to the house is a detached, self-contained annexe (calling it an annexe does not do it justice!) named Plas Bach which translates as Little Palace. It is a spacious property in its own rights offering two-bedroom accommodation and is positioned in a way to give maximum privacy to both properties. The impressive internal finish of the house is complemented by the beautiful grounds that surround it, with landscaped gardens, stables, a pond and pasture paddocks it really has everything you could wish for!

Approached via a timber gated vehicular access, you are immediately met by the impressive front elevation of the house. Right from the outset it is clear to see you are about to view a beautifully maintained and presented property. The house and “The Barn” flank either side of the gravelled drive which offers ample parking and a turning area for multiple vehicles. The gardens surrounding the house welcome you to the property with a gravelled path bordered by flowering beds leading to the front door.
Since the current owners purchased the property they have had a new professional CCTV system installed, giving peace of mind as they overlook the buildings and in addition plenty of outdoor lighting.

On entering the property, you are greeted by a beautifully presented hallway with an oak floor and immaculate decoration. Be assured this theme continues throughout the property! To the side of the hall is the main oak floored reception room. This room has a triple aspect making it lovely and light and is a pleasure to see. Large enough to accommodate a grand piano but yet with the wood burning stove, it still provides that cosy feel you would expect in such a rural property, ideal for those winter months. The kitchen offers a real ‘wow’ factor, the current owners have made this such a cosy room. This farmhouse style kitchen with comprehensive lighting and extensive tiling incorporating Alice Gibbons hand moulded tiles complement the character of the property perfectly especially with the Belfast style sink and Rayburn which warms the room and welcomes you to sit around the kitchen table, it really is the heart of the property.

The formal dining room is accessed off the kitchen via glazed double doors and is a superb room. Tastefully decorated, with a wood burning stove set in the chimney breast and a stone surround incorporating an original bread oven, it really is a super room for entertaining guests. To the rear of the property and tucked away, is a pleasant study and well fitted cloakroom, with the useful utility room accessed off a small inner hall for all white goods, the utility also gives access to the rear garden, ideal after a day spent in the garden!

From the entrance hall, stairs rising to the first floor open on to a large landing incorporating a large, internally lit linen cupboard. The first floor accommodation does not fail to disappoint, offering 4 bedrooms in total, 3 generous doubles and 1 large single which are well appointed with most having fitted double wardrobes. 2 of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms and the rest have a newly fitted family bathroom with a recently installed white suite. The master bedroom currently has a four poster bed flanked by two double wardrobes and is a double aspect room with views over both the front and rear gardens – a really impressive room.

Certainly something to bring to your attention are the expensive maintenance jobs which have been carried out, with an energy efficient condensing boiler, replacement UPVC double glazing and a modern sewage system in place meaning there should be no hidden expenses when you move in.

All in all, a superb house with little or no work for the purchaser to undertake, just move in and enjoy living in such a beautiful home.


The quality of the internal presentation of the house continues throughout the grounds. Well landscaped, with well-maintained flower beds and borders, there are front and rear paved seating areas that overlook the gardens, ideal for outside dining and to soak up those spectacular views that surround the property. The gardens which are mainly lawned have been professionally tended to with flowering beds, borders, with mature plants and shrubs. All benefitting from a greenhouse and garden shed, both with power and lighting, for all those garden enthusiasts.

The Land & Outbuildings - Although a super house and barn, one of the main reasons the current owners purchased the property was the land. Extending to 4 ½ acres in total with approximately 4 acres of pasture land, which is sub-divided into 3 smaller paddocks, it is ideal for a number of uses but currently grazed by a small flock of pedigree sheep. Well fenced, with well-placed gates between the paddocks, with a good lay of grass on a clay soil….. you could not wish for better. A large lined pond is located in the first paddock attracting an array of wildlife that can be overlooked from the gardens. Every smallholding needs some buildings for all that equipment and Pantawel certain has that.

Attached to “The Barn” is a large storage shed (7.03 x 4.26m) with double doors, perfect for machinery and tools or could be used as a fodder store or games room. Also accessed off the yard is a great modern outbuilding (7.69 x 4.87m) being steel framed, timber clad with a concrete floor and with a concrete yard, this super building is currently used as stables, with power and lighting. The buildings and fields have a separate vehicular access off the lane and are short distance from the main entrance to the house, providing maximum privacy and security.

The Location

Within a short drive or a pleasant walk is the small rural village of Cilmery, with a great community, the village has a charming little country Public House, known for its good food and great atmosphere and has excellent transport with a Heart of Wales railway line stopping in the village and giving access to Swansea and Shrewsbury on a daily basis. From the village within a short 2-mile drive is the market town of Builth Wells (Llanfair ym Mault). The town is located at the heart of Powys, Mid-Wales in what is arguably some of the most beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. Builth Wells lies within the Historic Boundaries of Brecknockshire, situated on the banks of the River Wye and the River Irfon – The Upper section of the Wye Valley. Builth Wells is famously known for playing host to the Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year, together with other popular events to be held at the Showground, including the Spring and Winter Fairs. With a population of around two and a half thousand – the positive impact this has on many local businesses located within Builth Wells is immeasurable and this could easily be capitalised upon using “The Barn”! Builth Wells is ideally located in regard to beautiful surroundings with the Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons both just a short drive away.

"The Barn" - “The Barn” (constructed in the year 2000 by the previous owners for a specific need) is such an impressive building. Being well located across from the main house, it means whilst inside either property, neither overlook the other, giving maximum privacy to each occupier. The barn is mainly independent from the main house with its own central heating system. In excellent order throughout the spacious accommodation is perfect for housing an extended family or gaining additional income from letting. The current owners have, by choice, decided not to let the barn and it is unused, but this could be a great income provider for the purchaser, with the Royal Welsh Showground 5 miles away it really is a lucrative opportunity for any purchaser to capitalise on. Offering 2 bedrooms with a wet/shower room on the ground floor and bathroom on the first floor, the barn has a spacious open plan living/dining area and kitchen. I think your guests would be reluctant to leave after spending time here! A huge asset to the property that can be used to provide a valuable income. If you have been looking for a property with additional accommodation, you will not find anything better than this.
