Chain Cottage is a sweet mid C19th Victorian property bursting with potential. It is set in a delightful plot backing onto the towpath side of the Montgomery Canal near Chain Garthmyl Bridge, with lovely views of Corndon Hill. The estate agent states that it was originally an administrator’s office for the canal. It is just outside the little village of Garthmyl a short walk from the Nag’s Head country pub. The small town of Welshpool is about six miles away and provides all essential amenities. The canal in this area is in water, but I believe that it is not currently navigable.
An entrance porch leads into the cottage. The living room has a multifuel stove and an oak floor. On the left side of the cottage is a conservatory or sun room. The kitchen has an oil fired Rayburn which also heats the radiators around the cottage, and an additional utility room. There is also a ground floor bathroom. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two main bedrooms and a small third bedroom, ideal as a nursery, study, or dressing room, which is accessed via bedroom two.
The garden extends along the canal towpath on both sides of the cottage. It is filled with shrubs and mature fruit trees, and it would be an exciting project for a keen gardener to restore.
The agent believes that the cottage has a mains water supply, a mains electricity supply, a private septic tank, and that broadband and telephone connections are available.
The picture from the canal side of the property is from Google Maps, and I’d like to replace it with a proper photo, so if anyone is passing that way and would like to take a photo for the website, I’d be very grateful.
