Off grid 1700’s Ty Coch cottage offers off grid rural escape from 21st century life and General Election politicians

ARE you fed up with politicians and the General Election? Do you want to get away from it all and make a new life? Then this bucolic idyll in the heart of rural Wales may just be right up your lane.

Dreamy Ty Coch, in Powys, offers a new owner the chance to take a step back into a more tranquil time to a less hurried existence, to escape the tedium and stress of modern living. 

Sean Roper, of  Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions who are selling the off-grid retreat, said: “The cottage, Ty Coch, Llanwrthal, near Llandrindod Wells, Powys, could be the answer to your dream to ‘escape’ and to  grab the quieter, less rushed life, the one that you’ve always promised yourself.

“At the head of a valley with quite spectacular views over the stunning mid Wales countryside Ty Coch, which dates from the seventeenth century offers that once in a lifetime type of opportunity.

“The cottage really could become your very own off-grid retreat. Accompanying the property, which dates from the 1700’s, is a large paddock situated to the rear. The house itself has been sympathetically restored and modernised all the while maintaining its character but bringing it into the modern era.

“Although historic Ty Coch nevertheless  enjoys the comforts  of modern life with both the heating and electrical systems at 21st century level even though the house is fully off grid and not connected to any mains services. And the services have been designed to have lots of spare capacity, so that they will always be able to heat and power the house, even in deepest Winter.

“Filtered water, which is collected ‘raw’ from a spring up on common land above the property to the South East, serves the property. Hot water is heated via the thermal store. 

“Close to the house is the attractive small market town of Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Show, just up the road is the spa town of Llandrindod Wells, with its lake and park and a few miles north are the stunning Elan Valley reservoirs. Rhayader with its many pubs and restaurants is nearby while a  car journey of an hour takes you to the seaside university town of Aberystwyth.

“The three bed house, which has a guide price of £325,000-plus, has entrance hall with a door off to the lounge with open fire, which in turn has stairs to the first floor and doors off to the kitchen and bathroom. The stairs off the lounge provide access to three first floor bedrooms.

“The property benefits from small front garden stoned yard with turning area and large paddock to the rear. It has many period features throughout, including exposed timbers and subject to the necessary planning permissions being gained offers the scope to double the size of the property or provide away from it all holiday lets in the adjacent stone barns.”
