The  Former  County  Police  Station, High  Street, Llandrindod  Wells, Powys, LD1  6AN


COMPRISING: - An imposing 4-storey former Police Station built around 1910 from brick walls under a slate roof.  It retains some original character features, to include ornate tiling, some coving, etc.  Planning Consent is being sought for conversion into two large dwellings, both with fine views over the town and Ithon Valley.  


Unit  2  - Sandwiched between Unit 1 and the Former Court, with potential for bedrooms at Ground Floor (in the former cells), a very large living room, kitchen and master bedroom at First Floor, two attic Bedrooms at Second Floor, cellar storage, small gardens to front and rear, and rear car parking bay.  (Note - New staircases will be required for both units).                                                                                                                                                                  


PRICES: -          UNIT  2  -  £90,000  -  No forward Chain


VIEWING: - Strictly by appointment with the Agents Morgan & Co.  Tel.  (01597) 825682


DIRECTIONS: - From our office proceed South on the A483 (towards Builth Wells) for 200 yards then turn right at the mini roundabout onto Spa Road (towards Rhayader).  Pass the Commodore Hotel, go over the Railway Bridge then turn right.  The former Court is on the left after 100 yards, opposite the Bus Station.  Sale board erected.


SITUATION: - The Court is set in a prominent location on the corner of High Street and Dyffryn Road, with principal windows facing East and South.  It is located almost opposite the Bus and Railway Stations (Shrewsbury to Swansea line), and a footbridge means that the town centre is within 300 yards.  The Llanerch Pub (a former Coaching Inn) is located a short distance to the rear and the Tesco Superstore and Petrol Filling Station is within 100 yards.  There is a Leisure Centre (with swimming pool) at the High School (300 yards) and the beautiful wooded Rock Park a similar distance.  Llandrindod Wells is the County Town of Powys and was originally developed as a Spa centre by the Victorians.  The town has a good range of shops and business facilities, successful schools and Cottage Hospital.  Excellent leisure amenities include indoor and outdoor Bowls, a fine 18-hole Golf Course, Theatre, Pavilion and beautiful parks.  The area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, with unspoilt open hills ideal for walking and outdoor pursuits, river and lake fishing.  The market towns of Builth Wells, Rhayader, Knighton and Newtown are approximately 7½, 10½, 19 and 27 miles away, with Hereford, Abergavenny 


THE  PROPERTY  - “County Buildings” is an imposing property that was built around 1910 from top quality glazed bricks with contrasting stone quoins and Flemish influenced gable details, under a Welsh slate roof.  It was built in the town’s heyday as a County Court and Police Station, and was very much in keeping with the great expansion of the town as a Spa Resort, with the best architects coming to design prestigious Hotels, etc, and trains arriving at the neighbouring Railway station direct from London.  The former Police Station offers huge scope for conversion into two large individual homes, with generous headrooms at ground and first floor level and beautiful panoramic views.  The purchasers will have to install additional staircases and the former cells will need to be knocked out to form larger rooms, particularly in Unit 2, but that part has a magnificent room at first floor level with views to the Cambrian Mountains.  (Note -  An outline planning application is being submitted by the vendor).


TENURE  - The property is freehold and vacant possession is available with no forward chain.


SERVICES  - Mains electricity, gas, water, drainage and telephone are available, but might require new connections.  None of the services have been tested by the Agents


FIXTURES & FITTINGS  - The contents are included in the sale price.


LOCAL  AUTHORITY: -  Powys County Council, County Hall, Llandrindod Wells, LD1 5DL
