Situation and Description Silia Wood is privately situated and protected by its own gardens and mature woodland which provides the house with considerable privacy. Its ‘tucked-away’ location also enjoys far reaching views whilst all the benefits of the thriving market town of Presteigne lie within a few minutes walk. The town offers a considerable range of facilities with schools, leisure centre, choice of shops, restaurants and public houses as well as a doctors’ surgery and much more. The area is also renowned for its natural beauty with some stunning walks right on the doorstep. Further facilities can be found at the market towns of Kington, Knighton and Ludlow as well as the cathedral city of Hereford which offers road and rail links to other parts of the country.
This unique property has been lovingly constructed and extended by the existing owner on the site of a much smaller cottage. It now offers very comfortable and practical family accommodation, in the main laid out over three floors, with a large family room and adjoining kitchen, creating an amazing family space. There are lots of individual features from timber flooring and joinery to arched windows and some stunning views. Outside, there are approximately 2.4 acres of mature woodland, with many specimen trees, creating a wonderful playground for a growing family or just for nature lovers to enjoy the abundant wildlife. There are good sized gardens as well as a very useful paddock to the rear, which would ideal for keeping a small pony etc.
A short distance from the house there is workshop and garage and a two-bedroom chalet which provides holiday accommodation, and a further site for an additional chalet to be built, if required.
On arrival, a front door leads into an entrance hall with a tiled floor and access through to a lovely and spacious family room which provides an excellent space to gather with triple aspect, wood burner, wooden flooring, storage cupboard, stable door to gardens and double doors to the outside. A tiled floor leads into a well-planned and spacious kitchen with granite working surfaces, a triple aspect, exposed stonework, range of fitted cupboards and drawers, built-in fridge and freezer together with a Kenwood Range cooker. From the hallway steps lead up to a good-sized sitting room, which is full of character, with a vaulted ceiling, wooden floor, fitted cupboard, corner wood burner on a stone hearth, a double aspect with triple arched windows and stable door to outside. The ground floor is supported by a large utility room/boot room with a tiled floor, range of work surfaces, deep-fill sink, plumbing, door to outside and door to cloakroom. Steps lead down to a workshop with a range of cupboards, one of which houses the central heating boiler.
The first floor is accessed by a staircase either from the dining room or the sitting room and leads up to a good-sized landing with airing cupboard and doors to a wonderful master bedroom suite with wrap around windows overlooking the woodland and distant farmland. There are large built-in wardrobes and door to en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms with plenty of light and dual aspects making the most of the property’s location. One has an en suite shower room with the rest being supported by a family bathroom. A second galleried landing has a large arched window overlooking the paddock and farmland to the rear and stairs to two further ancillary rooms which offer a further dimension to the house. These rooms are serviced by a wc and separate shower cubicle and again are full of light and space.
Outside Silia Wood nestles into the woodland above the thriving market town of Presteigne and occupies a sylvan setting with many mature trees within the grounds. These include Wellingtonia, Douglas fir, coast redwood and grand fir as well as native species including oak and ash. They create a haven for wildlife and benefit from various pathways meandering through. Immediately around the house there are level lawn areas and shrub borders. Initially the driveway to the house is shared for a short distance and then its own private driveway sweeps up through the trees to an extensive parking and turning area to the front and side of the house. From here there is access to a workshop and garage as well as an attractive detached timber chalet which provides ancillary accommodation. Immediately to the rear of the house is a good-sized paddock, ideal for dogs or equestrian use.

Bear immediately right and continue along Warden Road for approximately ¼ of a mile and the entrance to Silia Wood can be found on the left-hand side.
