Overview - Love your horses? Looking for a smallholding with stables, menage and paddocks? Well I've found it for you! Craig Goch Fach or for us non Welsh speakers 'Little Red Rock' as it translates is a super equestrian based smallholding set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside. Purchased back in the early 1900's the property was originally a workers cottage for the Caerwnon Estate. Since then the property has never left the family and has been home for generations up to today. The property has been extensively renovated and extended over the last 15 years and from the once cosy cottage it now offers a substantial detached family home, with currently 4 bedrooms, ample living space and a Kitchen that all the family can sit around the table for Sunday lunch!

Externally you will find a large yard, ideal for the trailers and equipment that you will surely need, a steel framed agricultural 75' x 30' building, 4 loose box stables, a schooling area and 2 pasture paddocks that extend to 5 acres in total. Craig Goch Fach offers everything you could need when it comes to keeping horses!

The Property - The house was once a cosy 2 bedroom cottage but now offers little resemblance to its original size. Extended in 2001 the property is now a large family home, with 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and a large kitchen. As all smallholdings its really important to have a good side entrance porch for you to kick your dirty boots off as you enter the house, that's exactly what you have! The side porch is an ideal storage room and in turn leads to the utility and shower rooms. These rooms have been recently upgraded and have a modern finish and are ideal for a family, with room for all of the white goods in the utility together with a third shower room, to save any arguments for the shower!

The main room in the house is the kitchen, fitted with a farmhouse style kitchen units the room is large enough for a dining table with 6 chairs, a lovely sized room for all the family to enjoy dinner! One particular feature of the property, one which owners of horses or livestock will appreciate is that from the kitchen window and from most windows in the property you are directly overlooking the paddocks where the horses are grazing. So important in my eyes, whether it be horses or any type of livestock the ability to constantly keep an eye on them is invaluable and at Craig Goch Fach you can do that from most rooms in the house. You'll have seen the horses in the morning before you'll even have had a chance to have a cup of coffee! The lounge is a really great size, with a stone chimney and a wood burning stove adding to the character and off it a useful office/study which also has a pleasant view over the neighboring land. Planning permission has been obtained for the erection of a Sun Room at the rear of the property, the room would overlook the garden and would have lovely views over the paddock at the rear.

The first floor accommodation again continues the spacious theme. The master bedroom is a generous double room, double aspect so is nice and light and shares the same outlook over the paddock and yard to the front. An en-suite shower room is provided and a fitted wardrobe to complete a very nice suite. There are currently 3 further double bedrooms but formerly they were 4. Bedrooms 4 & 5 have been opened up into one room to allow a large space for their daughter for a dressing area, however this could easily be returned to 2 separate double bedrooms as the doors are still in place. A family bathroom is found off the landing to make it 3 bath/shower rooms in total.

A great house for a family, that's well presented, well decorated and ready to move straight into!

Outside - Most purchasers looking for a property with horses or livestock are mostly more interested with what's outside rather than the house itself! Well the outside does not let the property down at all. As you approach the property you leave the council maintained road onto a 100 yard private driveway which leads though a gated access to the yard. The house stands prominently on your left with the stables and buildings on your right, the paddocks are to either side of the house so the land sits nicely surrounding the yard and buildings.

The stables are made up of three 12' x 12' and one 12' x 10' stables, of block construction with lighting. They are well maintained and are located just to the side of the 75' x 30' steel framed agricultural shed. Previously used as a lambing shed, now as a fodder store with additional stabling this building is ideally suited to a number of uses. Connected to power, with lighting, water and a welding point it really is a super building. To the side of this building is the schooling menage, 40m x 20m in size with post and rail fenced boundaries, its a little girls dream to learn to ride with family watching on from the side!

The two paddocks are well fenced and offer some well shaded areas with mature trees on the boundaries. The owners have always found they have no problem whatsoever in renting the stables out during Royal Welsh Show week and there could be a great opportunity for a purchaser to capitalise on such a demand!

The Location - The property is located a 2 mile drive from the village of Newbridge-on-Wye. The village offers two public houses, together with the Church, Primary School and with a good road network it is proving to be a very popular place to live. The property is also on the doorstep on the Royal Welsh Show, which is the biggest agricultural show in Europe and attracts over 240,000 visitors to the town each year.
