DIRECTIONS: - From Llandrindod Wells  take the A483 North (towards Newtown) for 3 miles to Crossgates.  Carry straight on at the roundabout for nearly ½ mile and turn right onto Rock Road.  The drive to Stone House is after the second property on the left and there is a name plate on the recessed 5-bar gate.   (Sale Board erected) 


 


SITUATION: -   Crossgates is a small village set at the intersection of the A483 (Manchester to Swansea) and A44 (Oxford to Aberystwyth) Trunk roads with a Primary School and Petrol Service Station (with a Nisa supermarket and café), and Penybont Railway Station is roughly 1¼ miles (Shrewsbury to Swansea line).  Stone House is set on a slightly elevated plot with distant views to the Cambrian Mountains, is approached over a gravelled drive and is surrounded by hedges and trees that give excellent privacy.  The house has a Westerly aspect, although the garden is mainly located on the Southern side and the outbuildings and parking area are set on the Northern side.  Stone House is conveniently located a short distance from the A483, with regular bus services passing by and is only ½-mile from village amenities.  


The County Town of Llandrindod Wells is 4 miles and has a Tesco Superstore, Aldi Supermarket, Secondary School, Cottage Hospital and varied employment opportunities.  Excellent local leisure amenities (within a 12 mile radius) include three sports centres, two 18-hole golf courses, indoor and outdoor bowls (International quality), Theatre, Cinema, river and lake fishing.  The market towns of Builth Wells, Knighton, Llanidloes and Newtown are approximately 12, 16, 22 and 23 miles distant with regular bus services.  The City of Hereford and the coastal resort and University Town of Aberystwyth are both within an hours drive.  In the 2015 and 2017 Rightmove Surveys “LD1” was declared “the friendliest place to move to in the UK” and Llandrindod Wells “The Happiest Town in Wales”.
