    About this property

    • Until the late1960's Hafodty was a working hill farm. At that time the farm holding was acquired and broken up by corporate interests selling on the farmhouse, outbuildings and seven acres of land separately.

      The farmhouse was improved in the 1970's to provide a comfortable dwelling with a lounge, lower parlour, kitchen, and utility room with WC and small shower at ground floor four bedrooms and a bathroom at first floor.

      The outside of the farmhouse is finished with a lime wash. The windows and doors are timber. The pitched roof is constructed of timber rafters and finished with natural slates, the main chimney stack is topped with clay pots.
      The interior of the farmhouse is finished in a number of ways including slate slabs on the ground floor, lime washed walls and timber boarded ceilings and partitions.

      Both the farmhouse and the outbuildings retain their traditional character with rubble walls build from local stone.

      There is mains electricity, a telephone line and a private water supply from a spring. Heating throughout the house is by radiators heated by an enclosed log burning fire in the lounge and storage heaters.

      The outbuildings
      There is also a range of stone outbuildings - a two-storey barn, a long barn and undercroft/tractor house with a granary/storeroom over. The finish to the roof is natural slate on the two storey barn and the remaining corrugated metal sheet.

      The outbuildings have mains electricity supply and are used as a workshop and for storage. Twenty solar panels have been installed on the long barn roof.
