Estate agents Dafydd Hardy have put a whole Welsh village on the market. With a price tag of just £1.2 million.
A whole Welsh village for the price of a London Flat: The sale includes 16 cottages and acres of agricultural land in the historic Welsh village of Aberllefenni. Although originally listed in June 2015 for £1.5 million it is now back on the market at the lower price. Which is roughly the same as buying a 2 or 3 bedroom flat in Knightsbridge, London.
Dafydd Hardy is hopeful that it will sell this year after trying to find a new buyer. Telling ITV that “The last sale fell through in November 2020, which was frustrating. It’s the complex nature of the package that’s on offer that causes all the hold-ups. But there’s only one way to progress with something of this nature and that’s slowly.” The agent’s listing states it’s “16 tenanted houses sold as a package.” and “a good investment with a steady rental income.”
All the properties currently have tenants in situ. The listing goes on to add “The village of Aberllefenni is surrounded by beautiful countryside amidst the wooded slopes of the Dyfi Forest. The forest and Cader Idris mountain range are a mecca for walking, climbing, mountain biking, canoeing, birdwatching and fishing.” Therefore having potential to develop the tourism side.
The village is home to the oldest working slate quarry with workers previously having lived in the cottages. And is possibly the last quarry of it’s kind in Wales. Hardy finished off by saying. “We’ve recently had lots more people wanting to see it. And that’s despite all the COVID-19 related rules which are in place at the moment regarding viewings.” The last sale fell through in 2019 and the uncertainty around Brexit was alleged to be the cause
