A country home tucked in the foothills of the Snowdonia National Park is being sold complete with its own private nature reserve, a commercial bunkhouse and broadband speeds of up to 330Mbps.

BwlchycoedisafBwlchcoediog Isaf will make many rural and city dwellers envious with its unique location as well as “fibre to the premises” access to high speed broadband, the speed of which is difficult to get in many city centres.

Set within 28 acres of the tranquil and small valley of Cwm Cewydd, near Machynlleth, Powys, the 4/5 bedroomed country house will appeal to those looking to escape to the country while ensuring connectivity with the outside world for work or pleasure.

The separate bunkhouse, which has been operating for 10 years, makes it a great venue for providing accommodation to walkers, mountain bikers and tourists who visit the area throughout the year.

“Bwlchcoediog Isaf is unique in many ways, not least having its own private nature reserve with 40 bird species as well as bats, badgers, polecats and the occasional otter,” said Paul Evans, a partner at property surveyors and estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole who are selling on behalf the owners for £525,000.

“But perhaps the property is more unique in that it has BT fibre to the premises (FTTP) which allows broadband speeds of up to 330Mbps – something that is hard to come by in urban areas, let alone in rural Wales.”

The property is located 1.1 miles from the main A458 Machynlleth to Welshpool road, a major tourism thoroughfare to the Welsh coast during the summer months.

It includes 4/5 bedrooms, a garden room, lounge, day room, kitchen/diner as well as a loft room previously used as a study or bedroom.

BwlchycoedisafThe nature reserve is private and not open to the public. It has a mixture of habitats, including oak woodland, wetland, ponds, meadows and streams.

Owners Mark and Clare Faith say they hope the new owner will have as much love and interest in the wildlife and surrounding environment as well as the property.

“It’s a stunning place to live in a magnificent part of the world. The views are amazing and the abundance of wildlife on the doorstep makes it very unique,” said Mrs Faith.

“The broadband is quite unique. It was installed by BT to the property and we can get speeds of up to 330Mbps, although we’ve opted for 80Mbps.”

Mrs Faith added: “The bunk house is an added opportunity for any buyer. It is fully insulated, has its own broadband connection, power and lighting as well as toiler and shower block. “This is ideal for the many walkers, mountain bikers and visitors who come to the area throughout the year.”

The 28 acre private nature reserve was registered in the Birdwatchers Year Book in 2002 as well as with the British Trust for Ornithology.

It has three ponds, one of which is large with an island containing a duck house.

There are also 58 nest boxes, 49 of which have been occupied so far this year by various species including Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Blue Tit, Great Tit and Nuthatch.

The reserve also attracts a large array of other wildlife including 40 bird species, bats, badgers, polecats and otters on occasions.

The property is being sold through Mid Wales and Shropshire property surveyors and estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole for £525,000.
