Got a spare £1.25m burning a hole in your pocket? You get a house and filtration building chucked in, too!

Twin Peaks, the remote Welsh studio which has played host to acts like Manic Street Preachers, Catatonia, Pete Doherty (and then-girlfriend Kate Moss) and Mick Jones of The Clash, is up for sale.

Located at the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, on the banks of the Pentwyn reservoir in rural Powys, Twin Peaks (pictured, credit: Twin Peaks record studio) is on the market for £1,250,000 (about €1,567,720 at the time of writing) alongside the 19th-century, grade II-listed house Ty Neuadd, and a 4,500 sq ft filtration building which has planning permission to be turned into a “haven for ramblers”.

Studio owner Adele Nozedar, an ex-music A&R exec, tells Wales Online: “Although we’ve been advised to sell the properties separately, we feel we have a responsibility to the place that we’ve lived in and loved for 20 years. We want to sell all three properties together because we’d like whoever buys it to maintain the special spirit of the place.

“Adam [Fuest, ex-husband and Twin Peaks co-owner] and I split up four years ago but we managed to stay really good friends. Suddenly, it felt like the time was right to move on and try something new, but I fully expect it to be quite a wrench when it actually comes down to leaving.

“This is an incredibly beautiful part of the world and a very special place to call home. It’s magical and has really got under my skin over the years.”

Markets: Houses of Worship

Had Europe's glorious churches and cathedrals not been built of stone, the better to impress God's majesty on those who had to make do with wood, installers would doubtless make a great deal more money (and more easily) from the European house of worship market.
