MILL HOUSE PONTCYCH MILL
I am selling my beautiful smallholding in West Wales. There is a large 3/4 bed semi-detached house and a two bed detached cottage. The Mill was built in 1713 and has retained many original, vernacular features.
There is approximately 9 acres of oak woodland and 3 acres of meadow. A small river runs through the land with sewen, trout and salmon.
I acquired the property 15 years ago in a mostly derelict condition. My heart and soul have been poured into the place, but now it is time to downsize and move on.
Both the house and the cottage have been converted and restored using traditioal lime building materials. The lime walls preserve and protect the stonework and allows the buildings to breathe creating a healthy living environment.
The land has been re-wilded and is a haven for wildlife.
The property is perfect for a large family, or group of nature lovers to take over this amazing place. It is perfect for permaculture, and would not take much to go off-grid. River, trees, fertile land and sun!
The holiday cottage has the potential to generate a good income as an air B&B and the woodland could be perfect for Glamping once again.
There is super fast fibre optic broadband service supplied to the Mill.
The old static caravan has great potential and could be replaced by a log cabin
This is an amazing opportunity to 'live the dream'. This is not just a home, it's a life style. £450,000
Major refurbishment 2019 - 2020
I put the property on the market late summer 2018. There was considerable interest during this time.
However on 13th October 2018 during Storm Callum, many properties in this area of West Wales were flooded, including Pont Cych Mill.
Fortunately, I was fully insured and after a challenging but very rewarding year, both properties have been extensively repaired, restored and re-furbished.
Both houses have had new kitchens, bathrooms, electrics, heating and plumbing, new internal walls, decorated, rebuilt chimney, top of the range wood burners etc. Please see slide show images 'Major refurbishment 2019 – 2020'
The slide shows in the gallery page show the property as it was before the flood as well as the condition before my original restoration.
Both houses are finished to a high standard and a considerable amount has been spent on repairing and enhancing the properties.
There is a large, light workshop with a woodburner located in the Dutch barn. There is also a utility room located in the Dutch barn with a toilet, sink and shower room.
There are no issues regarding continued comprehensive insurance for the property including flood cover. This has been possible through the government subsidised program, Flood RE and is considerably cheaper then the usual insurance premium.
There are several additional flood defences that can be easily installed including a flood door on the cottage and house. There is super fast fibre optic broadband supplred to the property.
