Inside an abandoned country home that is up for sale, including the creepy furniture that is still in the rooms.
Plas Newydd, a late-eighteenth-century hall and farm in Welshpool, is full of Victorian-style features and could be renovated soon after being listed for £750,000.
After being abandoned for years, a Victorian hall and farm built in the late 1800s has been listed for sale for £750,000.
Plas Newydd, near Welshpool, Powys, Wales, is set in 17 acres of land half a mile along the A483 from Welshpool.
The land, which includes a farmyard, an orchard, a paddock, and pastureland, could be used for livestock or equestrian facilities.
According to Wales Online, the red brick house is a renovation project with a lot of potential.
The windows have stone detailing, there are large bay windows, and the chimney stacks are impressive and robust, with brick detailing.
The inviting central porch tempts you inside, and it’s well worth the time spent rummaging through this spacious period home.
A stunning stained glass inner front door, high ceilings, large, square reception rooms, and period features can be found throughout the hall.
The original staircase was described as a “glorious specimen of carved wood spindles and newel posts, as well as a gleaming bannister that sweeps up to the four double bedrooms on the first floor” by the local paper.
The property is still filled with the previous owner’s personal belongings, which can be seen in most of the rooms, adding a sad note to the tour but demonstrating that the house was well-loved throughout its history.
Fancy cornices, deep skirtings, and original wood-panelled internal doors can also be found in many of the rooms.
Into the first reception room, which used to be the opulent drawing room where any previous visitors would have been entertained.
The cornicing, picture rail, bay window, and dual aspect are all noteworthy features, as is the feature fireplace, which isn’t from the expected era.
This later addition has its own period story to tell, but if the new owner wants a Victorian happy ever after renovation story, it might be worth replacing with a fireplace that is more appropriate to the era when the house was built.
The dining room, which is behind the living room, has the same height, light, and period features as the living room, but it lacks a complete fireplace, so that’s another task to add to the ‘to do’ list.
However, if you look up, you’ll notice the beautiful ceiling rose.
