Period cottage with magnificent high ground views. Three/four large bedrooms, a 24 ft lounge with working fireplace, kitchen and breakfast room, formal dining room with PVC french doors, separate versatile sitting room, shower room and utility room. Stylish new bathroom, must be seen, simply unique!

A charming detached stone built cottage, built circa 1910, and occupying a prominent position on a high ground location with truly exceptional panoramic views across the Valley. Haul Y Mynydd (Mountain Sun in English) is a rare property, sited on Eagle Rock and positioned at the far end of Rock Cottages, a cul de sac of period homes. In recent years the original cottage has been extended, firstly in 1990, and again in 1999. The breathtaking views are outstanding, and the property is nestled on the side of a mountain with its own woodland and Grotto. There are three sections to its garden, a level private front lawn looks across the valley offering inspiration, whilst a side sun terrace looks across both the front close as well as the woodland. There is also a further sun terrace, approached from french doors opening from the dining room, and commanding some lovely views across the valley and the woodland. This private patio garden is enclosed by dry stone walls, and provides a real sense of wonderment, perfect for reading and entertaining. The property benefits all mains services, and includes gas heating with panel radiators and a Baxi Bermuda back boiler, traditional panel doors with brass handles, white PVC double glazed windows and full damp and timber treatment completed in 1987 by Protim Services (documentation available for inspection).
