DESCRIPTION Blaengwy is a beautifully located farm tucked away in a stunning setting surrounded by rolling hillside, farmland and common ground. The homestead is surrounded by its own farmland which amounts to approximately 26 acres or thereabouts. It is approached off common land onto a private track within the ring fenced boundary that leads into the valley and terminating within the traditional courtyard setting. The property was substantially renovated in 2003-2004 just after the current owners purchased the property; this included a new roof covering, new electrics, new heating system, replacement windows, relaying floor, etc.

The cottage provides 2 bedroom accommodation with a wealth of traditional features complimented by some lovely stone barns and pretty farm/amenity ground suitable for a variety of uses. The farmland includes pasture, areas of wet meadow land and mature hedgerows and streams. The sale of Blaengwy really does offer a wonderful opportunity to purchase an extremely privately situated rural property, ideal for those seeking tranquillity, privacy or simply for those who enjoy the wonderful scenery in this part of Breconshire.

LOCATION The property is situated in a rural location approximately 3 miles from the nearest village of Pontfaen which itself is a small rural hamlet in the Yscir Valley. There is a primary school and 18-hole golf club with clubhouse located in the village of Cradoc, approximately 5 miles, whilst the market town of Brecon which is approximately 8 miles offers an excellent choice of amenities including supermarkets, convenience stores, leisure centre complex, theatre, secondary schooling, etc.

WALK INSIDE A traditional stable door opens from the courtyard into the ground floor Reception Area which is separated into 2 rooms, a Dining Area and a Sitting Area, both with attractive flagstone flooring and a wealth of natural stonework. The larger sitting area has a deep recessed fireplace with inset bread oven and fitted Much Wenlock wood burning stove. A particular feature of this room is the recessed window seats and secondary small fire set in a fireplace recess to the dining space. The Kitchen incorporates an oil fired Rayburn which heats the hot water and central heating and operates as a functioning cooker, there is a Belfast sink and bespoke stone built work surface with flagstone finish. To the rear of the kitchen is an extremely useful Utility Space with storage area and separate w.c. closet incorporating low flush w.c. and wash hand basin.
