An exceptional four bedroomed country residence/smallholding/equestrian unit nestled in 10 acres of land on the edge of the popular, thriving village of Bwlchgwyn, which has its own primary school, play area, inn, village hall and church.
The holding is currently run as a small mixed farm. The land appears in excellent condition, having been farmed to a high standard for many years.
The property is accessed via a short private driveway, with a garden to the rear and with the yard and buildings to the front.
The property was a three bedroomed cottage but has been renovated and extended by the present owner into the adjoining building to provide a family kitchen/dining room, second staircase to master bedroom with en-suite and large upstairs living area. There is scope to add two further en-suite bedrooms subject to building regulations. The property could easily be split into two separate,three bedroom units suitable for dual family living.
The outbuildings are predominantly stone built with slate roofs, there is also a timber built building and dutch barn with a lean-to off one side. The outbuildings have been used in the main for pig housing however would be easily converted to provide loose housing or stabling for horses.
