This property was built on Bradnor Hill in the early 1920's. Originally the design included some aspects loosely resembling a ship so it has a south facing look out in the eaves of the house. From here you can see for over 25 miles. The house is also surrounded by National Trust land and is right next door to the Offas Dyke footpath. Kington Golf Club, which has the highest courses in England, is a short stroll away. Musician Mike Oldfield and his sister Sally used to live here in the early 1970's.
This delightful colonial style, large detached residence, nestles quietly on Bradnor Hill side, overlooking the Welsh Black Mountains, Hergest Ridge and is within close proximity of Kington Golf Club and amenities.
The property is a 1920's house and is not far from the market town of Kington with a good range of shopping facilities and schools.
