The property comprises a charming, traditional Welsh farmhouse, built of stone with rendered elevations under a fibre cement roof with kitchen lean-to to one side and having uPVC windows throughout. It is set back from the council roadway with a large, level lawned garden to the front and hardcore driveway to the side. It probably dates from the late 18th Century and offers well proportioned accommodation. It is in need of further improvement and renovation.
The outbuildings situated to the rear of the farmhouse include traditional ranges of stone outbuildings and modern clearspan Atcost concrete framed buildings. There is also a small meteorological weather station paying a rental of £800 per annum situated on the land to the south-east.
The land lies in a ring fence, intersected by the quiet council roadway leading to Tirabad village and adjoining the Eppynt MoD range to the south. It runs level or gently sloping to the Afon Dulas on the north-west boundary. It is chiefly laid to pasture and extends to 187 acres, or thereabouts.
Mains electricity is connected to the farmhouse and principal outbuildings.
There is a private water supply piped by gravitation from a spring on the southern boundary via filtration and storage tanks to the farmhouse, outbuildings and some field enclosures.
The farmhouse has a private drainage system.
