A rare opportunity to buy a redundant farmstead and large area of land in the unspoilt landscape of the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park.
The property borders Ystradfellte Village in the unspoilt Mellte Valley within the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park. The property is accessible from a stone trackway which connects to the minor council road linking the surrounding area to the A4059 main road. A location plan is enclosed with these particulars.
Lot 1
A traditional farmstead sitting within the northern edge of the holding and consisting of a derelict stone former farmhouse, situated below the farmstead is a detached stone barn (Ysgubor-wen) and later additions surrounded by approximately 63 acres. The farmstead is set into the hillside in a delightful position overlooking the surrounding countryside. The farmhouse is in need of complete development subject to obtaining planning consent. The detached stone barn is ripe for conversion subject to the necessary consents. The land lies in one block between 255 and 360 metres above sea level with Ystradfellte Village and the minor council road forming its eastern lower boundary and providing access to the holding at several points. Neighbouring farmland is present on all other boundaries. The land is a mix of lower lying valley bottom meadows rising to gently sloping higher lying pastureland with some isolated pockets of woodland present. The private water supply for the retained farmstead is located within the band of sloping damper ground. The holding is divided into multiple useful enclosures with internal and external boundaries in good condition. The holding is served by several small tributaries of the Afon Mellte and benefits from common grazing rights for 427 ewes and 12 Cattle on the Great Forest Common.
Lot 2
Extending in all to approximately 59 acres. The land lies in one block between 250 and 330 metres above sea level with the Afon Mellte forming its western boundary. The land is approached at the bottom from a stone trackway beside Pont Rhydrhiwllan and at the top from a minor council road passing along the eastern slopes of the Mellte Valley. The land is a mix of gently sloping improved pastureland lying between a broadleaf river corridor below with a further band of broadleaf woodland and less improved rough grazing enclosures on high lying areas above. The land is divided into several useful enclosures with internal and external boundaries in good condition. The land benefits from common grazing rights for 133 ewes and 1 Cow on the Great Forest Common.
