A productive well equipped dairy/stock farm consisting of the four bedroomed centrally heated farmhouse with adjoining self contained new build granny annexe, excellent ranges of farm outbuildings offering good modern cattle housing, Alfa Laval 6/12 herringbone milking parlour, other useful traditional buildings some of which may have some development potential, concreted holding yards together with good quality pasture/arable land, rough grazing and woodland to the lower level.
Since purchasing the farm in 2015, the present owners have utilised the holding as a stock rearing enterprise. Whilst the diary equipment has not been used, it will more than likely, need servicing and may require replacement parts if the prospective purchasers intend dairying.
The land and farmyard is dissected into four separate land parcels each with access off the local county road network and being convenient to the homestead in all amounting to about 93.52 acres (37.84 ha). The farm has the benefit of common grazing rights on CL77 Penlle'r Castell, Mynydd y Gwair and Banc Maestir Mawr.
