Access is via a lane off the road that runs through the village of Pontrhydfendigaid and brings you to a parking area with a garage and raised vegetable bed area to your right with the house, gardens and land in front and to the left.

The gardens are very well maintained with various lawned areas and trees and shrubs. You can access the outbuilding, stabling and paddock easily from the house.

The Land

The pastureland is predominantly to the rear of the house, part of which is fenced off to provide a lovely wildlife area around the large pond. Access to the stabling is easily had from the main paddock and over the years it has been used for cropping and grazing of horses. All in, including the gardens, just under 3 Acres.

With 2 stables, both measuring 11' x 11' with automatic water dispensers and both in very good condition with grill between both stables, there is also a tack/feed room at the end.

Overage Clause

As the land with this house is right on the edge of the village of Pontrhydfendigaid it might be possible for this land ( at some stage )to be developed and as a consequence our client intends inserting an overage clause on the land in order to share in any uplift in the future value of this land if that were to occur. If you only intend buying this property for its general enjoyment and to keep a horse or two, some sheep and chickens etc then this Overage Clause will have no effect on you whatsoever.

What is an overage agreement?

Also known as claw-back or uplift, an overage clause is an agreement that the buyer will pay extra, on top of the original purchase price, if and when certain events happen. For example, if the buyer increases the value of the land by obtaining planning permission on the land.


From Lampeter take the A485 and proceed to Tregaron. At the junction in Tregaron, go straight ahead onto the B4343 sign-posted Pontrhydfendigaid proceed until you reach Pontrhydfendigaid. When you reach the village, proceed over the hump-back bridge and through the village until you reach the traffic calming measures (narrowed part of road), with a right no-through road sign. Take the right no-through road between the houses. Llysyrawel is at the very end.
