Full Details

Ysgafell provides an excellent opportunity in a picturesque whilst easily accessible location, with a charming house and gardens providing the ideal layout for keeping livestock. A secondary income is also possible through the letting of the annexe and there may be development potential in the buildings (subject to obtaining planning consent).

Ysgafell Farm is located near Caersws within the beautiful Powys countryside. It is conveniently situated close to the towns of both Llanidloes and Newtown, and is less than an hours drive from the coast in Aberdovey. The property equally has excellent road links to the wider cities such as Chester, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, being in close proximity to the A483 Trunk Road.

Internally, the property provides elegant family accommodation including three large reception rooms, a comprehensive modern kitchen and dining room, three double bedrooms and a cellar. The house also benefits from a modern extension, which provides further utility space and an annexe with separate access.

There is an oval gravelled driveway with a raised shrubbed centre to the front of the house, as well as a beautifully managed garden area with a useful storage shed, extensive flowerbeds and vegetable patches. There is also a summer house providing a great outside area for entertaining.

Ysgafell forms an excellent opportunity and has the perfect balance of original and modern tasteful finishes.

The productive pasture land extends to 85.22 acres (34.48 ha) with 1.73 acres (0.70 ha) or thereabouts of woodland. The land at Ysgafell is located in a ring fence surrounding the farm house and buildings, dissected by a railway which serves the Shrewsbury to Mid Wales Coast line. The land is fertile river ground with loamy soil that is freely draining, and is suitable for grazing, mowing and arable rotations.
There are well kept fences and mature hedgerows. The land is currently all down to grass and benefits from in-field water troughs connected to a Well supply. A bridge and tunnel connect the lower land. The river stretches for almost a mile along the land at Ysgafell and the property benefits from fishing rights.
None of the property falls within a development boundary as detailed by Powys Council.
