If you’re looking to sink your teeth into a hefty renovation project with tons of potential, this large Victorian country house might be the place for you.

Named Plas Newydd, the 18th century hall and farm is located in Powys, Wales, and is currently on the market for offers over £750,000, Wales Online reports.

The sprawling property needs a lot of work on the inside, but in the hands of the right buyer it could be transformed into a magnificent estate – even if it currently looks like the previous occupants left without moving a single piece of furniture.

In the hallway, two tables, some chairs, and a large old clock still sit gathering dust, while there are armchairs in the sitting room, and old wooden beds in each of the property’s four bedrooms.

Despite the work that needs to be done on the home, the grandeur of the property is hard to miss – and the potential it holds after renovations is huge.

There are high ceilings throughout all the large rooms, and the original staircase is an impressive art piece featuring carved wood spindles and newel posts.

Many of the rooms feature fancy cornices, deep skirtings and original wood panelled internal doors, and there are bay windows and fireplaces dotted throughout.

The house is split into two halves, with one side of the hall featuring the living quarters of the wealthy Victorian family who once lived there, and the other side making up the more practical side – where servants and maids would have worked.

The working side of the house has no fancy cornicing, decorative fireplace, or bay window, but instead comes with a line of bells in the corner.

And once the lucky buyer is finished renovating the house from top to bottom, they’ll also want to set their sights on the stunning landscape that comes with it.

Outside, there’s a farmyard, an orchard, a paddock, and pastureland that adds up to approximately 17 acres in total – with plenty of potential.

Rob Hudson, a partner at estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd, said of the property: “Plas Newydd is a large four-bedroom home in a stunning countryside setting.

“While the property needs modernising, it provides a new buyer with a chance to renovate the hall back to its original glory. Its size and location make it a good family home with plenty of outdoor space.

“Demand for large properties with land outweigh those available on the market and so we believe Plas Newydd will receive a lot of interest from people looking to renovate and move into such a property with good road and rail connections.”

The Powys property is being sold through Morris, Marshall and Poole with Norman Lloyd, and interested parties are asked to call them on 01938 554818 to find out the exact location of the house and more details about the sale of the property.
