There are two principal outbuildings of stone and slate construction which are serviced by electric and a private water supply, and the property also consists of a derelict former farm cottage, which subject to planning consent could be used as further accommodation. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries on the planning potential of the outbuildings and former farm cottage. There is also a useful detached building within close proximity of the dwelling currently which houses the oil fired boiler and part utilised as an outside W.C. utility room, cold store & storage. The former kitchen garden area remains and could be restored.
The land consists of approximately 67 acres of unimproved mixed grazing land, approximately 24 acres of native woodland (Oak, Rowan, Birch, Beech, Copper Beech and Wild Cherry as well as Chestnut tree in the immediate grounds), and a good sized garden within the immediate grounds of Garth Y Foel house.
