The agent commented: “The property Pantpurlais is thought to date from the early 19th century but was rebuilt after a fire in the first decade of the 20th century, during the peak of Llandrindod Wells fame. 

“The house was restored by previous owners between 2015 - 2019, but it is the current incumbents whose mission has been to create a biodiverse smallholding of meadows, orchard, pasture and woodland through an environmentally sustainable approach, the idea being to create a destination property and a true lifestyle offering. 

“The substantial house is set over three floors, with a good flow to the accommodation, lots of natural light and good connection to grounds and countryside beyond.”
