Bedrooms: 3

A character 3/4 bedroom SMALLHOLDING with around 26 Acres of predominantly rough grazing situated in a private position with no immediate neighbours and having recently (Feb/Mar 23) had most of the external walls insulated on the inside, a newly installed air source heat pump and 11 pv panels (owned - not leased) put on the roof for electricity.

In the farmhouse there is an entrance hall, lounge, sitting room, inner hallway with downstairs shower room, cloakroom, kitchen / diner and a utility, on the first floor there are 3/4 bedrooms and a second shower room.

Outside there is a large stone barn ripe for conversion (subject to any consents required) or for stabling / storage. The land is split into 10 main enclosures and some of the land borders the Clettwr Fawr River. Some of the land has not been worked for some time and would need some work to bring it back into full productive use.

This is a classic country smallholding with lots of further potential, lots of outside space whilst benefitting from recent improvements as listed above.

To the side and attached to the house is an open storage barn in need of work.

Near the main house there is a stone barn with slate roof which could provide further potential, subject to any consents required.

The setting is superb with no immediate neighbours and having some 26 acres of land, predominantly laid to pasture in 10 enclosures together with a small area of woodland.

The Land

The land amounts to around 26 acres or thereabouts and is split into 10 main enclosures. A large proportion of the land has not been worked for a while and would need work to bring it back to productive use, some of the land however is usable for rough grazing. There is a mixture of flat, gently sloping and sloping land and several of the fields border the Clettwr Fawr River. Our vendor has advised that there are fishing rights on the river.
