5-bed farmhouse with restored barn, outbuildings, workshop, 23 acres in village near Swansea
Well presented 5-bed farmhouse with restored Welsh long barn, 2 stone outbuildings with workshop, 23 acres of grazing and woodland, landscaped gardens, vegetable garden, paddocks, ponds; private yet only 3 miles from junction 45 of the M4, in the sought-after village of Glais near Swansea.
Income potential as equestrian, farming, holiday lettings, artists studio and workshop (current use) or would be suitable for conversion to two separate properties if the barn were developed as a three bedroom house, subject to necessary planning consents being obtained.
Local area and transport
The village of Glais, with its pubs, bridleways, golf course and excellent village primary school, is much sought after. The property is located above the village and is reached via a private tree-lined lane with no further dwellings beyond, ensuring peace and quiet.
The bustling university city of Swansea is 6 miles away, and nearest mainline station to Cardiff, Bristol and London only 5 miles (with London under three hours, Cardiff 45 mins). We work between Swansea, Cardiff and London and the property is in easy reach of the M4 and mainline stations.
Private yet not secluded with panoramic valley and woodland views yet only 10 mins from major supermarkets, hospital, art centre, climbing wall, and indie cinema. Gower and West Wales beaches 30 mins, Brecon Beacons National Park 30 mins.
The farmhouse is light and airy and has a sunny open aspect. It has recently been re-decorated with neutral colours throughout and both bathrooms recently re-fitted with Heritage sinks and toilets.
Beautiful gardens with greenhouse, vegetable plot, mature trees and shrubs including magnolia and wisteria, and three good-sized ponds which are naturalized with yellow flag and bullrushes, and there are panoramic views of woodland, valley and hills with no near neighbors. The Northern boundary is bordered by the Nant-y-Glais stream and a sessile oak woodland.
The house is heated with interdependent Calor gas central heating and multi-fuel Rayburn with back boiler, and wood-burning stoves (with ample supply of your own wood). We have our own filtered water supply with delicious spring water, and no water rates.
Septic tank. Telephone, Broadband and SKY/Freeview.

Restored Welsh Long Barn Outbuilding / Workshop
The Welsh long barn has been completely restored in the past few years and all three outbuildings are of stone construction and have power, light and water to them.
The main barn is currently used for storage, table tennis and as an artist’s studio and workshop. There is an open garage space/car port to the side of the middle outbuilding with an inspection pit.
The third outbuilding was formerly a stable block but is currently used as a workshop and storage space.
Deciduous woodland amounting to approximately 12 acres and 4 fields (approx 8 acres) for rough grazing, currently stocked with neighbouring horses - two paddocks and a former manege.
After 25 years of living in this lovely location with its rich variety of plant, bird, and wildlife it's time to downsize; we have priced to sell at less than the valuation.
