Enjoying Panoramic Views - over the surrounding countryside, a registered smallholding comprising an extending traditional 3 bedroomed cottage together with traditional modern outbuildings, immediate grounds and paddocks in total amounting 10 acres or thereabouts

Troedyrhenrhiw is surely one of the most appealing smallholdings which is currently available in mid Wales. The property is but a short distance from the main A44 trunk road yet nestles in a sheltered location with views over the village, Cambrian mountains and beyond. The 3 bedroomed cottage retains many original features and the accommodation has been enhanced by the large side extension which provides for spacious lounge and double bedroom with en-suite facilities.

The outbuildings do not infringe on the immediate cottage and immediate grounds and they are in fact approached over a separate tarmacadamed drive for ease of access. There maybe also an opportunity to develop a traditional stone barn subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

The main A44 trunk road is but a 1/4 mile from the Troedyrhenrhiw and local amenities are a mile or so travelling distance at the village of Ponterwyd to include primary school, garage/ general stores and public house. The university and market town of Aberystwyth is some 12 miles or so travelling distance on the coast and Llangurig is a similar distance in land.

The property is in an area of outstanding natural beauty with tourist attractions such as the Nant Yr Arian forest centre, Devils Bridge and the Nant Y Moch reservoir all within a short travelling distance. Troedyrhenrhiw therefore provides an excellent opportunity for prospective purchasers to acquire a wonderful registered small holding with well presented 'oldy worldly' accommodation, useful modern and traditional outbuildings and livestock paddocks. A property well worthy of inspection as highlighted in the photographs.
