|Seller notes:||“PLEASE VIEW WEBSITE FOR MORE PICTURES www.tynant23.co.uk. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, a two bedroom stone house surrounded by its own land with a mountain stream and large pond. It is approached by a private stone tracked of approx 1/4 mile. Huge potential for improvement and extension. The farmhouse is mostly renovated, but in need of further improvement, and there is obvious scope for extension (subject to necessary consents). The house is two storey at the front, but drops to 1.5 storeys at the back, with a long low sweeping roof. This creates the large attic room under the eaves that has limited headroom. It is a common feature of Ceredigion cottages, and many others have had the back wall built higher and the roof altered to create two extra rooms upstairs. It could be made much bigger by rebuilding the rear wall further back, and creating a much larger kitchen and rooms above. There is certainly no constraint on space!”|

Ty Nant (translates as 'House by the Stream) is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the outskirts of Ponterwyd. The village has local amenities of a petrol station with local shop, the George Borrow Hotel with restaurant and bar, a Primary School, church and bus services. The village is approx 12 miles from the University and seaside town of Aberystwyth, and Cardigan bay coastline. It is within easy reach of tourist attractions such as Devils Bridge and the Vale of Rheidol Railway (2 miles) and Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forestry Centre with regular Red Kite feeding, walks and mountain bike trails (3 miles). There are many opportunities for walking, horse riding and mountain biking in the area and the property is surrounded by stunning countryside. The house is situated on a hillside at approx 1000 ft and has with superb views overlooking its own land, the village and beyond. The 67 acres of land contains a mix of improved/semi-improved and mountain grazing. A stream intersects the land, and there is a large pond close to the track. The property is approached over its own 1/4 mile stone track from the council maintained road (B4343). The stone track could be improved, although it is fine for most vehicles, it is not suitable for vehicles with low ground clearance or HGV. It leads up to the side of the house, where there is a turning area and parking for several vehicles.
THE LAND Next to the road and entrance gate, there is a large disused quarry (1/2 acre). This large level sheltered site would provide excellent parking for large vehicles, HGV's and agricultural machinery, and would be a good site for an agricultural shed. There is currently a 40ft shipping container in the quarry, used for dry secure storage. The 67 acres of land contains a mix of improved/semi-improved and mountain grazing with areas of fairly flat land, some gently sloping and some quite steep. The land is currently used for sheep grazing, but has in the past had cattle and horses. A mountain stream runs past the house and intersects the land, providing not only fresh water for livestock, but also a beautiful water feature as it tumbles down the hill in a series of small rocky waterfalls and pools. The stream flows into a large pond, before continuing its course down to the gate. The pond is a lovely feature in the summer, beautifully clear water and large enough for swimming (the dogs love it!), and even for drifting about on a small boat. There are some interesting historical features on the land. There is a mine shaft (fenced and maintained by the crown) and associated spoil heap, and the remains of the waterwheel pit and water channels left from the days of lead mining. There is approx 1 km of roadside boundary, and there is a small plantation of mixed trees along side the road near the gate.
SINGLE FARM SUBSIDY ENTITLEMENTS The farm is a registered holding and holds full SPS entitlements. These provide an income of approx £4000-£4500 per year. The Entitlements are available by separate negotiation If you are not keen to be a farmer, the land, with or without entitlements, can be rented out to a local farmer and provide an income.
