You certainly get value for money with this large detached house laid out over four floors and with flexible accommodation with income potential. The main living space offers four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two reception rooms, a store room and there are a further three loft rooms on the second floor with a large attic space.

In addition to this, the lower ground floor which can be accessed independently or from the main house, has been used as a self- contained apartment. There are just so many uses for this property - a sizeable family home, with or without granny flat, a great B&B or holiday accommodation.

Sitting in a prominent spot on the edge of the village of Ystrad Meurig, steeped in history, this house has been a shop and formerly a Post Office. The generous gardens (approx 1/3 rd. Acre) contain a functioning well and large stone-built outbuilding currently used as a store. There are also magnificent views of the Cors Caron nature reserve. All this, only 14 miles from the coast and the old university town of Aberystwyth.

The current owners say that they lived in the property free of charge, as rent from the flat paid their council tax and electricity, and there are no water rates as the water to the property comes from a spring. Of course there is a well in the garden which beside being a feature in the garden, can be used as a reserve or for further water supply.
