Troed-y-Rhiw Farm is an impressive detached period property situated on the periphery of Ystrad Mynach village. The property sits in mature landscaped grounds totalling 1.82 acres, with a range of stone built barns/outbuildings, ripe for conversion (subject to relevant planning permission).

Original parts of the property date back to approximately 1650 with extensions added in the 1930s. The property is in need of decorative refurbishment but retains a wealth of original character features and has been a loved family home for the past 62 years.

The property offers well proportioned living and bedroom accommodation. An ENTRANCE HALLWAY, with wood block flooring and stairs to the first floor gives access to the three reception rooms. All three rooms benefit from views over the south facing lawned garden. The SITTING ROOM (19’10” x 16'1" widening to 22'1" into the bay window) has an ornate working fireplace and door to the garden. The DINING ROOM (16’5” x 11’10”) is also dual aspect and has views over the side garden and orchard. It has a working fireplace. The STUDY (12’7” x 9’3”) has book shelving and storage cupboards in recesses flanking a tiled fireplace. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM (10’4” widening to 14’9” x 14’10”) has a range of fitted base and wall mounted units. An Aga cooking range is set within an original fireplace with fully tiled surround. Within the kitchen is a modern gas fired central heating boiler. The room has quarry tiled flooring which continues through to a REAR HALL/UTILITY ROOM (9’ widening to 9’10” x 15’11”) which has space and plumbing for white goods and ample storage space. Finally there is a ground floor SHOWER ROOM which leads through to a WC.

On the first floor are four bedrooms, all of which benefit from built in wardrobe cupboards. The three bedrooms at the front of the property have wash hand basins. BEDROOM 1 (14’5” widening to 16’5” x 19’8”) and BEDROOM 2 (10‘11” widening to 12‘2“ x 16‘5“) are both generous sized, dual aspect rooms. BEDROOM 4 (12'10" x 9'6") is a good sized south facing room. BEDROOM 3 (15'9" x 9'10") is a double bedroom at the rear of the house. Between bedroom 1 and bedroom 4 is a BATHROOM (12’7” x 5’11”) this could be incorporated as an en-suite for bedroom 1. The FAMILY BATHROOM (7‘5“ x 6‘8“) has recently been updated and contains a white three-piece suite.

The property sits in the centre of a mature, landscaped plot. It has an abundance of tree and shrub specimens, an orchard and large lawned areas. A driveway runs adjacent to the house and leads to a parking area.

    OnTheMarket may have applied supplementary data to this property listing, including:

    Broadband availability and predicted speed: obtained from Ofcom on May 24, 2023

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on May 24, 2023

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
