Dol-llys Housing Co-operative, Powys, Mid Wales –  Share for Sale: £165,000  – SOLD –

Dol-llys Hall offers spacious, characterful and family friendly living accommodation within 14.5 acres of gardens, allotments, woodland, fields and lake.
Located within one mile of Llanidloes, mid-Wales, a vibrant and friendly town recently named one of the best places to live in Wales.  Set in beautiful countryside, with good rail links and local schools and the coast less than 30 miles away.

Dol-llys Housing Limited was formed in 1992 by 6 families to purchase the house, originally a regency country house but then empty and owned by Powys County Council, and 14 acres of grounds.  Dol-llys Housing Ltd was legally established as a housing co-operative as this was the most appropriate way to make a shared purchase.

In character, life at Dol-Llys has developed to be more in line with the co-housing movement.  A key difference is that we are not an “intentional community” in the general ideological sense; we don’t have a shared religious, political, environmental or social ideology. The aim of the original purchasers was to find an affordable way to live in a beautiful home rather than to create and live in a community. However, the sharing aspect was recognised as a bonus and this remains true today.  We have our own private space and enjoy and benefit from sharing resources and space, working and eating together once a month and having friendly neighbourly relationships.
