Property Of the Week 31st May 2013


Victorian Stone Built School Building With Adjoining School Master House 


Property Auctions


Property Address: Ffynnon Gynydd, Nr. Glasbury-On-Wye, Powys, HR3


Ffynnon Gynydd School is a traditional Victorian stone built school building with an adjoining school masters house. Recently closed, this attractive building retains great character, including a number of original fireplaces, wonderful arched doorways and large windows offering great potential for conversion into a spacious character dwelling. The building sits, surrounded by its own grounds, which have been used as playgrounds and are part tarmacadum, part lawned. The property is located within the pretty, rural hamlet of Ffynnon Gynydd, on the edge of the common.

Glasbury is a well serviced and popular village, about a mile and a half from the property. It offers good local facilities including two public houses, riverside restaurant, garage/post office/general stores. Hay-on-Wye is 6 miles from the property and offers supermarkets, doctors and dental surgeries, a wide range of bookshops, restaurants, public houses and shops, etc. The area is one of significant beauty with the Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons National Park to the south particularly noted.
