Delightful historic building located in the heart off Hay-on-Wye with a large retail area plus a flat.


Charming and historic building found in the heart of Hay-on-Wye offering versatile accommodation currently serving as an antiques shop however has the potential for a wide range of uses. In February 2019 the property was granted planning permission to provide the option of conversion to residential use.

The property is currently used as an antiques shop and gallery, over two floors, with a flat and living area on the first and second floor.

Tredegar House is a Grade II listed building and of great historical importance to this market town and has an attached retail area. The property is set back from the main road with a railed forecourt and is in close proximity to the clock tower and was formerly the Kings Head public house.

The exterior of the property dates from approximately 1770 with a gable end onto the street and a timber frame structure on the ground floor which was later built up with stone. It is likely that there is a much older structure beneath. The building has been meticulously maintained and the current owner has carried out significant improvements.
