DESCRIPTION Cwmffrwd is a period country property set within the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the foothills of the Black Mountains, an area known for its wonderful scenery, rolling hills and pretty wooded valleys. This former farmstead offers a wonderful opportunity to create a fine family home which consists of a period 4 bedroom farmhouse with bundles of character, a lovely 2 bedroom apartment which has been used as a holiday let for many years together with a traditional courtyard of stone outbuildings which provide a great opportunity for home working, storage, stables etc.

This country idle stands in around 19 acres of amenity and pasture land ideal for those looking for the 'good life', plenty of space to keep a few ponies, a small flock of sheep or just a few chickens for your fresh eggs. For those more adventurous buyers there is more land available of up to 70 acres in total.

LOCATION Cwmffrwd is situated alongside a minor country lane in a rural location just south of the rural settlement of Pengenffordd in the foothills of the Black Mountains. The immediate surroundings are known for its beautiful scenery and wildlife associated with the adjoining mountains and only a dozen miles or so further the spectacular Brecon Beacons Mountains range known for its rugged landscapes and escarpments.

Cwmffrwd is ideally located for the nearby towns of Brecon, Crickhowell, Hay on Wye and Abergavenny which are all known for their quaint architecture and boutique shops. Abergavenny boasts a railway station whilst the larger cites of Cardiff, Swansea and Hereford are all within approximately a one hours drive including the M4 motorway leading over the Severn Bridge to Bristol.

The mezzanine bedroom was often the highlight for children who were able to look down on the living space occupied by their respected elders.
