SITUATION: - Maple Terrace is a terrace of thirteen houses which has been dramatically improved by a road scheme which has moved the trunk road further away and created ample car parking for residents.  9 Maple Terrace has an Easterly aspect and fine distant views from the rear bedroom across the Ithon Valley to the Cambrian Mountains.  An un-adopted tarmac lane runs behind the terrace and gives access to the Garage and the rear garden has a westerly aspect and runs down to the railway line (roughly ten trains daily).  The town centre is just over ¾ mile, with a bus stop about 50 yards away, a Shop / sub-Post Office, hairdressers and Chip Shop about ¼-mile away and a Public House and Primary School about 600 yards distant.  


Llandrindod Wells is the County Town of Powys and has a good range of shops and business facilities (Tesco Superstore, Aldi and Co-op Supermarkets), together with successful schools, College of Further Education, Cottage Hospital and Railway Station (Shrewsbury to Swansea line).  Excellent leisure amenities include a Sports Centre (with swimming pool), indoor and outdoor Bowls, Golf Course, Theatre, beautiful parks, river and lake fishing. The surrounding area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty, with unspoilt open hills ideal for walking, mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits.  The market towns of Builth Wells, Rhayader, Knighton, Brecon and Newtown are approximately 7½, 11, 19, 21 and 27 miles distant respectively, with the City of Hereford and coastal resort and University Town of Aberystwyth both about an hour’s drive, with Cardiff, Swansea and the Severn Bridge all just over a 1½-hour drive (dependent on traffic levels).  This is a fine Victorian Spa Resort and in the Rightmove surveys  of 2015 and 2017 LD1 was declared “the friendliest place to move to in the UK” and the “Happiest Town in Wales”.


 


THE  RESIDENCE: - A traditional mid-terraced house built around 1905 from brick walls under a slate roof, which was     re-nailed and insulated to the current Building Regulations in 2014.  Number 9 has not been on the market for about 48 years and whilst it has been enhanced with PVC double-glazing and partial central heating, it is now in need of complete refurbishment, modernisation and re-decoration.  Maple Terrace are lovely family houses and Number 9 briefly comprises: -
