This stunning opportunity really has it all. Character, charm, land, views, seclusion, potential. Call us now to book your viewing on this beautiful farmhouse and barn conversion with approx. 6 acres!!
A stunning opportunity to purchase a three bedroom farmhouse, alongside a one bedroom barn conversion sitting in grounds extending to approximately six acres, in a truly breath taking location high above the popular village of Abbeycwmhir in the heart of glorious Mid-Wales. The property is approached from the village via a well-maintained forestry track, through the Coed Sarnau Forest, leading solely to Cwm Bedw. A gated entrance leads into a parking and turning area, with a track leading around the grounds to the mènage and various outbuildings. The grounds of this fabulous home overlook what appears to the naked eye a private valley, and extend to approximately six acres (TBV). This includes woodlands, manicured gardens, two paddocks, a vegetable garden and a gently sloping lawn meandering down to the large pond. There is also several bridleways and ample outriding from the boundaries of the property to suit the equestrian enthusiast. There is a large barn within the grounds of the property, measuring 55 x 20 ft, which currently has three stables including a large foaling box, a tack room and storage on the ground floor, with further storage on the first floor. This would lend itself to conversion into holiday lets, subject to the necessary planning permissions, or other purposes, to suit the new owner’s plans. There are further useful outbuildings in the form of two power houses, garden stores, log stores and a gazebo looking out over the grounds of this fine country residence.
Believed to date to around 1850 is a Victorian farmhouse which has been tastefully and sympathetically improved by the current owners over their tenure, and now provides well-proportioned three bedroom accommodation (with a fourth in the neighbouring barn). Entered through the porch door, the enclosed porch enjoys a picture window overlooking the gardens and pond, and a door from here leads into the 14 x 13 ft reception room with woodburning stove inset into a feature fireplace. A door leads from here in to the 10 x 9 ft study/dining room. A door from the main reception also leads into the farmhouse style kitchen, measuring 27 x 11 ft (maximum) and enjoying features such as the original range and bread oven. On the first floor, there are three good-sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom with wet room shower area. The roofspace has been converted into a stylish mezzanine storage area. The views from the first floor rooms in particular need to be seen to be believed.
This wonderful barn has been converted by the current owners and glazed double opening doors lead into a truly stunning multi-functional reception room with a wealth of character including exposed stonework, trusses and purlins. The whole room measures 34 x 20 ft and boasts a woodburning stove providing a lovely cosy environment. A door from here leads into an inner lobby with his and hers wash hand basins, access into the shower cubicle, WC and pantry. The 14 x 11 ft kitchen/diner is also accessed from the lobby and has an external door to the grounds of the property. The large double bedroom has fitted cupboards and interesting trusses and beams.
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase a change of lifestyle property. The current owners have run a successful holiday lets business and there is scope to expand if the new owners wish, with the potential for converting the barns within the grounds into further holiday lets. It is an idyllic spot, which is perfect for two families moving in together, and gives seclusion in the heart of the striking Mid-Wales countryside. Give us a call now to book in your viewing to this unique, special home.
