1 Harley’s Mountain has been in the same family for over 100 years. Once a vibrant working farm, the property now requires the next custodian to inject a new lease of life. Red House is set in an enviable position surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Welsh borders. The property requires modernisation but has plenty of potential, The existing house offers kitchen, 3 reception rooms and 4 bedrooms served by a family bathroom. Four distinct outbuildings, along with the existing house, create a courtyard of buildings. All outbuildings require significant renovation but offer huge potential to create a truly unique residential property. The single storey barn has the largest footprint, circa 1700 sqft. This sits in an enviable position with a south facing aspect over fields falling away to far reaching views. The buildings, position and land provide a rare opportunity to create what could be a very special lifestyle property (subject to consents).

This property has 100.98 acres of land.


About 100.98 acres in all: Circa 35 acres of mixed mature woodland, 45 acres of pasture and 20 acres of arable. The topography of the land is generally, gently sloping, flatter through the top fields and the pasture immediately to the front and east of the farmstead. The wood land tends to occupy the valleys and gullys to the boundaries of the property, and immediately around the buildings. The latter would benefit from some clearing to open the property up to the surrounding countryside. The option to develop a working farm remains but it is as a residential farm and lifestyle property where we see its true value.


The property lies in a secluded rural position, just 2 miles from Lingen with its church, village hall and well thought of pub, The George. Presteigne is only 4 miles away, with independent shops lining the narrow streets including a family butchers and greengrocers, independent cafes, bars and restaurants. Schooling is available at Presteigne Primary School, Wigmore Primary School and for secondary, Wigmore School. Private schools close by include Lucton, Moor Park and Bedstone. Larger supermarkets and further shopping can be found in Ludlow and Hereford. These are also on the mainline Manchester to Cardiff which has excellent connections to Birmingham and London, and the national road network. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside providing the perfect setting for excellent walking, cycling and riding.


From Ludlow head north on the A49 to Bromfield and left to Leintwardine. Continue through Leintwardine and take the first right after the bridge, signed to Knighton. Proceed to Walford and turn left, signed to Lingen. In Lingen, go past the village hall on the left and take the next right hand turn, signed to Willey. Continue for 0.5 mile then take the right lane in the fork. Stay on this lane to the end where you find the property.
