  • Quality Pasture Paddocks With Mill Pond 
  • Approx. 9.4 Acres In All

A characterful three bedroom period house set in approx. 9.4 acres with an excellent range of outbuildings and a fascinating fully functional water powered carpenters workshop

Ty Coch is understood to date back to 1650 and is believed to be the last working, privately owned water powered sawmill in the UK. The mill was operated on a very regular basis until 2005 and although still fully operational, it is now only used occasionally.

The house has a wonderfully authentic feel with numerous original features and exposed beams. The current owner ran a successful B & B enterprise from 2012 to 2017 and has let the paddocks out to a local sheep farmer.

The property lies either side of the A470 which provides excellent access to nearby Caersws, which has a useful range of local amenities including a supermarket, filling station, butcher, Spar, primary school, doctors clinic, Post Office, rail station with direct trains to Birmingham International and three pubs. A wider range of shopping facilities is provided in nearby Newtown.

OUTSIDE, OUTBUILDINGS & LAND

The tarmac entrance drive leads directly off the A470 and drops downhill to parking areas to the side and rear of the house.

There is also access of a small spur lane to the front of the property.

Adjoining the house, to the far side is a Cow Byre 19’9 x 13’2 (about 6.1m x 4m) with steps leading up to a large Loft 26’3 x 20’ (about 8m x 6.1m) which is currently divided into two, with beautiful original oak beams. These two rooms have scope for conversion to provide a self-contained annexe or extension to the main house, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Adjoining the house to the near side is a Bake House with an original Bread Oven.

The main Functioning Workshop adjoins the house to the front and measures 31’8 x 22’2 (about 9.4m x 6.8m). It houses the Victorian water driven mill machinery, including a circular saw on a rack bench, band saw, lathe and water sand stone. The Water Wheel is situated behind this building, and there are two Mill Ponds, one each side of the road.

Additional Outbuildings are as follows:

Storage Barn block walls with GI roof set on a concrete base in two sections, 18’9 x 12’ (about 5.8m x 3.6m) and 18’9 x 14’7 (about 5.8m x 4.5m)

Outhouse block walls providing two Freezer Rooms 8’4 x 7’11 (about 2.5m x 2.4m) and 7’10 x 6’9 (about 2.4m x 2.1m)

Workshop 33’ x 15’ (about 10m x 4.6m) of timber construction with GI roof, concrete base, light and power, housing an original Ruston Stationary Engine, which drives a planer.

Adjacent to the house there is a very large and productive Vegetable Garden.

To the far side of the house there is a strip of land comprising a Paddock and a block of Coniferous Woodland, plus a Mill Pond.

The main part of the land lies across the A470 in three excellent, gently sloping Paddocks enclosed with stock fencing. Water is supplied to a field trough, there is a Woodland Belt with a natural stream and in the larger paddock there is a Field Shelter. A separate gate at the far end gives access onto a side lane and a public footpath crosses part of the land. 

In the paddock nearest to the road is the main Mill Pond which is operated by a pulley system on tall poles crossing the road.
