Brynwern Hall is nestled within a private setting that encompasses its own formal gardens and grounds of about 16 acres. The main house was built during 1886 and was designed by the well-known architect Clifton Rees-Mogg.
The River Wye is approximately half a mile away where you can enjoy fishing along with a wealth of footpaths and bridleways for those who enjoy the outdoors. With the Brecon Beacons and Eppynt Mountains less than an hours drive, there is plenty to do in the area including a number of events throughout the year at The Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells.
There are well known golf courses at Llandrindod Wells and Builth Wells, both with 18 holes.
The spa town of Llandrindod Wells has a vibrant and active community with wonderful architecture. The lake is a great attraction which has a boathouse, café and shop along with the opportunity to enjoy some water pursuits.
There is a walk and cycle path around the lake which takes in the wildlife. The town itself has a number of shops and supermarkets, hotels and restaurants.
A sweeping, Rhododendron lined driveway leads you towards the front of the house and the gravel parking area. You are immediately met with the breath-taking views and the expanse of openness. A sandstone, decorative arched porch with Minton floor tiles and alcoves, provides access to the stain glass, glazed front door which leads into the hall and then a centrally positional grand entrance hall leading to the reception rooms creating a lovely flow to the house.
The drawing room has an open fireplace with a marble surround, a bay window with seating and a door leading onto the terrace and veranda, which is south facing with stunning views. The dining room mirrors the drawing room and has a hatch through to the kitchen.
The kitchen breakfast is a large room with a Welsh dresser with cupboards and shelves, a 4 oven AGA with companion, bespoke pine units with Formica worktops, quarry tiled floor, and views over the garden. A passageway leads through to a back kitchen and pantry and onto where the original kitchen was, now a workshop, and open fronted garaging which is where the original pantries and scullery would have been along with a courtyard. This also leads to the back driveway.
From the grand entrance hall two archways lead through to a laundry room with WC and an office/snug with a fireplace. A wide staircase glides to the first floor and landing where there are two principal bedrooms, both south facing with bay windows, overlooking the gardens and hills beyond. There is a bathroom with a large deep bath and a separate shower.
There are a further four double bedrooms, one with an adjoining door which could serve as a dressing room or further bathroom, a further family bathroom, separate shower room and a separate WC with sink.
From the first floor there is access to a large roof space over the old kitchen and garage, this has been utilised as a play room historically, but subject to the correct planning consents could make a superb conversion for additional bedroom space.
The formal gardens of Brynwern Hall extend from the south facing terrace and veranda, to make the most of the wonderful view. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn which wrap around the house with a double Ha Ha. The gardens blend into the wonderful ancient woodland with three separate paths aptly named Back Drive, Hedgerow and Tree House, each leading to the rear driveway, the pastureland and the cottage. The woodland paths are beautiful, combining a mixture of Rhododendrons, Yew, Lime, Ash and Oak trees. Amongst the pretty woodland is a wildlife pool with a collection of rare Ferns.
The pastureland is situated between the main house and the rear driveway and is currently used for grazing. There is a separate tractor shed and a courtyard.
A charming semi-detached cottage with separate access down the back driveway of Brynwern Hall and a garage with wonderful gardens opening into the original walled garden of Brynwern Hall. There is a charming sitting room with French doors leading outside onto the gardens and patio area. A kitchen breakfast room offering plenty of space with fitted units, an electric range oven and a stable door leading outside. There is also a WC. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom with a family bathroom.
Brynwern Hall may be accessed via the A470 which runs from Cardiff to Llandudno, therefore allowing travel from the north, south, east and west.

Continue along this lane, crossing the River Wye before seeing a lodge on your left hand side, a post box and black gates which is the entrance to Brynwern Hall. Continue along the driveway before arriving at the parking area in front of the house.
