Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique and exciting opportunity to purchase a site with fields, river frontage, orchard and a block of ancient mixed mature broadleaf woodland forming a substantial part of Llan-Y-Cefn Wood. Set in its own secluded valley leading down to the River Dee, with approximately 180m of river frontage with the possibility of fishing rights, extending to a total of 16.67 acres (6.75Ha). With far reaching views and its own historic water ram and natural spring - the property is accessible and at the same time quiet and most private. In this highly regarded area it is indeed a highly recommend viewing.

At the top of the valley is a historic orchard containing original fruit trees and a paddock of approximately 2.68 acres, suited to grazing or mowing with a private lane leading from the main road down into the woodland. Throughout the woodland are a wide variety of broadleaf tree species including ash, poplar and sycamore with some ancient hazel coppice and an abundance of wild flora species providing habitats for numerous mammals and birds including Otters suggesting the river is in a good state. Moving down to the riverbank, the topography is mostly flat with good access to the river. There is also a hydraulic water ram capable of pumping natural spring water from the bottom of the woodland up to the highest point on the land.

The property is suited for several uses including several potential sites, subject to planning permission, with a private space to enjoy the beauty of the fields, direct river access, diversity of nature within the woodland and orchard or indeed as a woodland management project.

We ask that all viewings of the property are made via
