Description

Beautifully presented traditional Welsh Longhouse with origins dating back to the 15th century. Located on the fringe of the village bordering open countryside. Comprehensively refurbished in 2004.


ADDITIONAL COMMENTS
This distinctive, traditional Welsh Longhouse was comprehensively refurbished to a high standard in 2003/4 and extended further by the current owners with the addition of a large conservatory.

The substantial property incorporates white-washed, stonework elevations lying beneath a pitched, slate roof and has double glazing throughout with hardwood joinery.

The ground floor (bar the conservatory), has underfloor heating whereas the first floor is heated by way of a conventional system with gas fired combination boiler and radiators.

Cross Farm also has an excellent energy performance rating of 'C', thereby reducing potential energy consumption and associated running costs.

The property's design offers a truly unique blend of old and new and its location, the best of both worlds in terms of town and country living.
