Property Description

Full description

A substantial Victorian House in approximately 8 acres



Maesydderwen is situated in an elevated position with south facing views of the woodland and hillside above Mountain Ash.

Communications and local facilities are excellent with a comprehensive shopping centre at Mountain Ash and easy access to Cardiff by road and rail. There is a Park and Ride facility within half a mile which provides a regular train service to Cardiff. The A470 links with the M4 at junction 32 and onto the national motorway network.

Recreational facilities are in abundance with a host of rural based activities on the doorstep including excellent country walks, bridle paths and cycle ways leading to the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The Property

Maesydderwen was the former home of Lord Aberdares Estate Manager. The property has subsequently been in the same family ownership for over 30 years and provides an opportunity seldom found to acquire a Victorian country house with mature formal and kitchen gardens, stables, paddocks and woodland. There is potential for conversion of the stables into a separate residential dwelling, subject to relevant planning consent. This is the first time the property has been brought to the market. The property is in need of upgrading and has considerable potential.

Maesydderwen is approached from a long sweeping private drive leading up to a broad level plot with the house occupying a central, south facing position with excellent views. There is ample parking including a double garage and a large, south facing sun terrace. Mature hedgerow boundaries provide considerable privacy.

Gardens and Grounds

Maesydderwen is self-contained within approximately 8 acres of gardens, paddocks, stables and beautiful mature deciduous woodland, probably planted 100 years ago, with a very interesting variety of trees.

The gardens are extensive and have some fine trees, mature shrubs and hedgerow boundaries. The garden is south facing with a gently sloping gradient, planted in a traditional cottage garden style merging with the adjacent former kitchen garden and still retaining some of the well-established soft fruit trees. There is also a small path to the highway and a large paved sun terrace sheltered by both the house and mature hedgerows. To the rear of the property is a detached double garage. The drive splits and leads up to a stone building comprising 3 stables and stores. There is planning potential for conversion into a separate dwelling, subject to obtaining relevant planning consent. The stables are adjacent to the paddocks, accessed through 5 bar gates. The paddock is approximately 3.5 acres and the woodland 4.5 acres.

Take the turning to the right after the traffic lights, signposted Cefn Pennar, and follow Dyffryn Road past a new development of houses on the left. At the T junction turn right.
