Please Note - We understand from the vendor that the barn was purchased along with the remainder of Y Waun in 1988 and indeed was lived in temporarily when renovation works were carried out to Y Waun immediately after purchasing the property. There is evidence of this inside the building by reference to kitchen units on the ground floor with hot water and boiler facilities. There is also a bathroom with sink and toilet located on the first floor. The property benefits from full double glazed windows and insulated walls.
Ground Floor - large open plan storage/kitchen/living room 28'10" x 10' approx. With mixture of tiled flooring and timber boards. The building is fully wired and internal lighting and power points available. The building can be used for storage purposes.
First floor - large open plan storage/bathroom/bedroom 29'6" x 10' approx. With timber boarding and flooring. Fully insulated walls clad in timber to approx. 4' before the roof structure is evident and begins the curve providing fully open ceiling. From inspection the roof is single skin and not insulated.
To the rear of the building is a former pond which has recently dried out but would be an attractive feature to re-introduce. To the south of the main dwelling are 2 large ponds which are linked to each other with the water eventually discharging into a stream.
Mature trees and hedgerows form the boundaries of the property which provide an excellent secluded plot with no overlooking but with extended views over adjoining open countryside.
