Set in the heart of the Cynon Valley, its stone front facade has feature bay windows.
Once inside, the kitchen is dilapidated and in need of a full makeover, but has an under stairs cupboard to use as a pantry.

Next to the kitchen, there is a bathroom that requires extensive renovations.
There are two large reception rooms on the ground floor, with another featuring period quarry tiles on the floor.

Ryan Saunders, who is handling the sale, said: “The reason for the low guide price is that the property is leasehold and has a relatively short time left on the lease.
“The lease for the property is due to expire in 2054. The new owner may wish to seek to extend the lease or to negotiate to buy the freehold of the property.
“There has already been strong interest in the property which I expect to continue on through to the sale next month.”
