SUMMARY
A large and substantial detached four bedroom 17th century farmhouse set within 2.8 acres of well-tended mature gardens and paddock with various outbuildings including a large pigsty. Adjacent to the house is a new detached stable block with three loose boxes, a tack room, a hay barn / feed store.


DESCRIPTION
West Aberthaw Farm is a Grade 2 listed farmhouse, reputed to have been built circa 17th century but containing sections possibly dating back to the 13th or 14th Century. Constructed in stone, with many major improvements, and occupying a large and lovely garden with additional paddock, extending overall to a 2.8 acre plot. This charming four bedroom country residence was originally modernised in the 19th century, providing a complete Victorian farmstead in the Vale. Located opposite Aberthaw Power Station which has now been fully decommissioned and is preparing for complete demolition, estimated to be completed by 2025 or sooner, this substantial property also has extensive historic connections, with the deserted Medieval village of West Aberthaw, the remains of which are located in the paddock to the south of West Aberthaw farmhouse. Remnants of the village include many earthworks such as an embanked croft, various building platforms as well as a substantial well at 36ft deep. The current owners have received full Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent with extensive records, for all necessary existing and future improvements, which would allow the next owner to take occupation without the required applications for change, involved in acquiring a Grade 2 listed building.

The Property 
Current improvements include but not limited to: the repair and re-slating of the roof with natural reclaimed welsh slate, and replacement of all fashia and soffets, together with replacement rainwater goods. Further improvements include a full re-wire, and a new plumbing and heating system installed including multi-fuel Rayburn (anthracite / wood) in October 2014. Also in 2014 a detached stable block was constructed complete with 3 loose boxes (12ft x 12ft each), a tack room (6ft x 12ft), a workshop (17ft x 12ft), and a hay barn (22ft by 12ft - divided into a feed store and hay
store), all constructed above a concrete base (60ft x 40ft).

This most impressive period home provides 3020 square feet of space, with many elegant character features including imposing farm house panel doors, flag stone floors, exposed stone walls, charming character fire places, an original spiral staircase, and ceilings with original meat hooks together with a unique period style down stairs cloak room with Victorian suite, truly stunning!
