An opportunity has arisen to acquire a 3 bedroomed detached property on the banks of the river Ystwyth and only 3 miles from Aberystwyth town centre.

The cottage is surely one of the most sought after properties currently available in the Aberystwyth area due to its unique location abutting the river Ystwyth at Llanfarian. The split-level property provides for comfortable 3 bedroomed (1 en-suite) accommodation with balcony and patio doors to the rear elevation to take advantage of the river views. The riverside location attracts a wide variety of bird life to any feeders put up, with plenty of woodpeckers from the nearby woods, nuthatches and long tailed tits. In addition to the birdlife on the river below: ducks, dippers, kingfishers. Plenty of red kites, swifts and swallows to watch too from the wraparound decking. Externally there is ample off road parking with paved garden to side and further garden area bordering the river.

The village of Llanfarian provides for a primary school and the University and market town of Aberystwyth is but 3 miles travelling distance. The town has a good selection of both local and national retailers in addition to the edge of town department stores. Aberystwyth has many employment opportunities including the University of Wales, the National Library of Wales and the Welsh Government Office.
