The Farmhouse and farmstead are situated in a very private position surrounded by its own land, nestled underneath a hillside lying to the north of the farmstead.
The Farmhouse and buildings lie in excellent sun, with the majority of the land benefitting from a southerly aspect with the land which rises up from the back of the farmstead benefitting from this aspect to provide early grass.
The land in front of the farmstead is mainly flat and heavier in nature, giving a good combination of soil types and grazing regimes for intensive, agricultural use.
There are few other residential or agricultural properties in sight of the farmstead.
A dingle area runs from the back of the farmstead in a northerly direction toward the "camp". This old valley (Cwmberllan means Orchard Hollow) provides amenity to the farmstead.
The hedges and fences on the farm are very well maintained by the vendors and the farm benefits from a regular programme of updating, improvement and replacement of boundaries.
Due to the size of the farm, this is a commercial, agricultural unit, however it could also be enjoyed by a lifestyle buyer or builder/developer or businessperson who wished to have a substantial private residence to develop over time, or to benefit from the taxation advantages of running and owning an agricultural property.

By Formal Tender by Noon Thursday 25th August 2022
The Cwmberllan farmhouse is a substantial Victorian built farmhouse lying just to the side of the main range of traditional buildings. It has a splendid front façade overlooking very well maintained garden grounds and looking in a southerly direction towards the farms own land, neighbouring woodland and the Kerry Ridge Way beyond.
The farmhouse is L-shaped in design and very well proportioned providing very good living accommodation for a larger family or could easily be split into more than one property for multi-generational living or the subdivision for the letting of part for residential or holiday let purposes, see detailed floorplan.
The house has UPVC windows in a sash style, with attractive bayed entrance porches and central bay to the front and the side elevation has UPVC windows in a casement style.
To the rear of the farmhouse is a stone rear walled garaging area under steel sheeted roof.
To the rear of the farmhouse, in a former orchard paddock, is a steel sheeted roofed lean-to area used as an entrance into the house and storage of working clothes/footwear.
This a substantial and impressive property with south facing land which also benefits from lighter land to the north on the sloping areas and a heavier lower lying area which gives a good variety of soil and land types to allow the farming of the property throughout the year. The enclosures are well laid out and are well shaped and of good size and well managed. The field boundaries and gateways are a credit to the vendors.
The farm has not been 'pushed' and it can be enjoyed under its existing farming methods or else intensified as a mixed arable and livestock holding to increase farm output. The land lies conveniently to the centrally located farmstead and provides excellent privacy to the house and buildings In all the land forming Lot 1 extends to Lot 1: 260.84 Acres (105.559 Ha)
In addition to Lot 1 a separate area of land known as Gate Land which lies a short distance for the main farmstead could be purchased separately or else combined with Lot 1 and farmed in conjunction as is currently the position.
Lot 2 is accessed from a minor council road and is a sound undulating area of pastureland with some amenity land and woodland in a lower area with natural water supplies. Lot 2 land is good quality pastureland and extends 42.04 Acres (17.01 Ha).
The entitlements in the ownership of the vendors will be transferred to the purchasers as far as the vendors are able and included in the purchase price. In 2022 116 entitlements were claimed with a BPS and redistributive payment of £20,057.
The entitlements and proportional payment for 2022 on its receipt, will be transferred with each lot on the basis of 100 entitlements with Lot 1 and 16 entitlements with Lot 2.
This is a valuable agricultural property which could be farmed or else used as an investment vehicle by purchasers to create income whilst enjoying an outstanding lifestyle property and potentially developing the farm complex to create 11 residential units.

RIGHTS OF WAY
There is a bridle way and footpaths which run through the farmyard and farm.
Garden Grounds are very well stocked and maintained with flower beds that compliment the house and the lawned area overlooks a further area which was formerly kitchen gardens.
The property has two amazing ranges of Victorian built farm buildings. Developed under the Naylor Leyland ownership of the property in the late 1800's, the contemporary farm buildings are very well maintained throughout, having been regularly repaired by the family over many years.
They comprise two very substantial ranges, which retain many of the original features and are in pristine condition for their age. They are constructed of solid brick walls under pitched slate roof with a number of gabled loft accesses into the first-floor accommodation and patterned ventilation areas contained in the brick work, to provide ventilation to the first floor for, historically, fodder and grain storage.
There is a number of interesting features including arches and cart stores.
Internally, a number of the original feeding passages and feed troughs remain.
The first floor accommodation has good head height and the first floor boards are generally in good order, though caution should be taken when viewing, to ensure that areas accessed are safe.
There is also to the rear a curved, galvanized 60 tonne Grain Store with auger system to building with grain blower in first floor.
3 bay Timber Pole Implement Atore under steel sheeted roof and walls.
Timber Frame Implement Store under cement fibre sheeted roof.
In addition to the traditional range, there are a set of two 5-Bay Dutch Barns under curved steel, sheeted roof and steel sheeted walls with central covered passageway under curved steel sheeted roof with lean-to around and hardcore floor used for implement storage, formerly for fodder storage.
