The buildings at Upper Cae Garw provide tremendous potential to be brought back into utilisation to assist any farming enterprise which maybe established at the property or, subject to gaining the necessary planning consents, the buildings do offer potential for changes of use with a tourism or equestrian aim.

The traditional buildings are of a stone construction under a tin roof with a stone, concrete, and earth floor. Split into five useful compartments and having been used for general storage, stabling and calf housing historically. The building complements the traditional feel to the farmyard exceptionally well. Part of the building was re-roofed with slate tile and the floor has been lifted with the view to converting said part of the barn. No formal planning was applied for previously.
A second traditional building of stone construction under a tin roof again provides excellent opportunities for conversion to a diversified use.

A significant agricultural building of steel portal frame construction under a tin roof with tin cladding to all sides with a double sliding door, concrete floor and apron. Previously used as a light aircraft hangar the building is in excellent condition and complemented the airstrip which was once on the property. Internally there is a small office area and bathroom with WC.

The land has been well maintained through grazing and mowing for hay/silage and is in very good heart.
