A charming 38.50 acre small holding with hill grazing rights. With a Two Bedroom Farmhouse with adjoining traditional stone outbuildings suitable for conversion subject to planning. Terrific views of the surrounding landscape.

Brief Description

Box Bush Farm is a 38.5 acre upland small holding nestled in the Black Mountains landscape with views overlooking the Llanthony Valley and the well-known rural hamlet of Capel-y-ffin. This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a picturesque property situated in an elevated position that requires full refurbishment and renovation works. The farmstead comprises a mixture of traditional stone and timber framed buildings, one of which adjoins the farmhouse and would make an ideal extension. The land surrounds the farmhouse on all sides and also provides access on to the adjoining Black Mountains.
The area is steeped in history with the nearby Monastery built in 1870 where it was reputed that the Reverend Joseph Leycester Lyne saw a vision of the Virgin Mary. The well known Llanthony Priory is also only a short walk away.

Situation

Box Bush farm is situated immediately above the hamlet of Capel-y Ffin, which is located only a couple of miles north of the village of Llanthony. Nestled within the valleys of the Black Mountains, Box Bush lies within the Brecon Beacons National Park. The nearest town is the popular book town of Hay-on-Wye which is only 8 miles away and provides some of the major facilities and services to include range of shops, restaurants and supermarket.

Accommodation

The farmhouse consists of four main ground floor reception rooms to include a utility, kitchen and lounge area. A small curved staircase provides access to the first-floor accommodation that has two bedrooms.

The farmhouse is in a very basic state of repair and requires significant expenditure to bring it up to modern day living standards. However, with sympathetic renovation and landscaping the property could prove to be the ideal setting for a wonderful family home or holiday retreat.
