Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
This is a classic ! Having sold this gorgeous SMALLHOLDING to our clients back in 2008 we have now once again been instructed to find a new buyer for this 13 ACRE most attractive farmstead. There is a 3 bed detached stone farmhouse, a 2 bed Cottage and an unconverted stone barn with conversion potential (subject to consents).....all set completely on its own at the end of a stone track with views over the surrounding countryside and all just a 10 minute drive into town.

In the House, there is a lounge, dining room, kitchen, sitting room, on the 1st floor 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, very usefully there is also a basement with WC, utility and boiler room.

In The Cottage there is a lounge with woodburner, kitchen/diner, shower room with 2 bedrooms upstairs.

Outside there is just over 13 ACRES of predominantly sloping pastureland leading down to the river boundary in the valley bottom, timber stables and a stone outbuilding used as an office together with, as stated, an unconverted stone barn adjacent to The Cottage.

They don't come much prettier than this........this is a "cracker".

From Newcastle Emlyn, take the A4571 towards Ffostrasol. At the junction, turn right towards Bwlchygroes. Just before Bwlchygroes on the left is a B&B sign & list of 5 house names, including Goytre Farm. Take this private track past 4 or 5 properties on either side and you will then enter a hard-surfaced farm-type track. Follow this to the very end where you will find Goytre Farm.
