A 73 acre organic farm featuring a well presented and spacious 4 bed farmhouse and a range of traditional and more modern agricultural buildings. The land is mainly pasture but includes some woodland and has approx. 500 yards of frontage on the River Ceri.
The house is set well off the road down its own lane and is surrounded by pretty gardens including a productive vegetable plot.
The house was fully renovated 25 years ago, including re-roofing and installation of new floors. The outbuildings are well kept, with an excellent two storey barn, which was re-roofed 4 years ago, the upper floor of which is converted to office use.
The traditional buildings are set around a yard to the front of the house and are well maintained and presented. The yard is clean and the buildings offer lots of scope for conversion if desired and subject to consent.
The land is divided by the village road, being split roughly into one third one side, two thirds the other. Access to all the land is easy and the land is currently let to a local farmer who would be happy to continue with the arrangement.
The property is situated just outside the village of Brongest, approximately 4 miles from the bustling market town of Newcastle Emlyn, which benefits from schools, shops, leisure centre, public houses, restaurants etc. The town of Cardigan is just a 20 minute drive away, with more shops, supermarkets, theatre etc. The beautiful Cardigan bay coast is just a short drive away and there is plenty of good walking and riding in the vicinity.

The property is approached from the village road via its own concrete lane. This leads into the yard in front of the main house.
The house itself is surrounded by well maintained gardens. To the front is a walled garden with lawns and borders containing a variety of flowers and mature shrubs and specimen trees. The garden runs round one side of the house to the rear. Here there is a private patio area.
Beyond the patio, from which there are fine views, and to the rear of the house is a large, well maintained and productive vegetable and soft fruit garden. The vegetable garden contains a number of Cordon apple and pear trees.
There is also an orchard to the top of the yard with a number of fruit trees.
The property comes with a range of attractive traditional buildings as well as a number of more modern agricultural buildings. All of the buildings are in a very good state of repair.
To the front of the house and standing around a concrete yard are:
Stone Stable Block comprising;
Old dairy measuring approx. 3.2m x 2.8m internally (10'6 x 9'2) with water connected
Three Stables measuring 4.45m x 3.2m, 4.45m x 2.9m and 4.45m x 3.25m respectively (14'6 x 10'6, 14'6 x 9'6, 14'6 x 10'8)
Foaling Box measuring 6.35m x 4.9m (20'10 x 16') with the potential to divide this if required.
Standing alongside the stable block is an open fronted 3 bay Implement Store measuring approx. 10.2m x 5.2m overall (33'6 x 17'). This has gates to the front making it equally suitable for livestock.
Standing opposite these buildings are:
Brick and Stone Barn measuring 11.2m x 4.95m overall internally (36'9 x 16'3). This is divided into three internally and has power and light connected.
To one end is attached a Chicken House and to the rear is a large Lean-to suitable for livestock or hay.
Next to the brick barn stands a two storey Stone Barn / Workshop. This measures 8.7m x 4.65m overall (28'6 x 15'3) and has power and light.
The upstairs has been converted into office space and has cupboards built in along one wall. It has a vaulted ceiling and roof lights to provide plenty of light.
This building in particular has lots of potential for further conversion.
To the rear of the stone barn, and set away from it stands a large, more modern corrugated Barn comprising a Hay Barn measuring approx. 19.2m x 5.15m (63' x 17') which is split level. To one side there is a Lean-to measuring 11.3m x 4.35m (37' x 14'3) and to the other side a further Lean-to measuring 12.1m x 4.1m (40' x 13'6). The barn is divided up using a series of gates and hurdles to provide animal pens for lambing etc.
Opposite this building stands a 2 bay Implement Store and next to this a further Stone Barn, suitable for horses or other stock, measuring 9m x 4.1m (29'6 x 13'6) and adjoining this a Garage / Workshop measuring 5.45m x 4.85m (18' x 16').
The land is mainly organic pasture although there is some woodland. The pasture has been farmed organically since 1999. It is a mix of well fenced, flat and sloping land with mature hedges.
The land is divided by the village road, with 21 acres on the same side as the house and yard and the remainder on the other side of the road.
The field below the house and yard includes two large ponds. On the opposite side of the road, the land is bounded on one side by the River Ceri. There, a strip of wood runs along the bank and the property has perhaps 500 yards of frontage with fishing.
As well as the woodland running along the river, there are two other small copses and two of the fields have a belt of woodland surrounding three sides.
The farm has been used for both cattle and sheep, as well as some arable cultivation. Regular hay and silage crops are taken.
We are advised that the property enjoys full sporting rights.
Please also note that the map shows a footpath crossing some of the land which lies on the other side of the road to the farmhouse. The path is not signed and we understand that it is impassable further along its route.
