Outbuildings

Two Large Stone Barns & Other Outbuildings

Gelli has a range of outbuildings, all of either stone or brick build. Most have electric supply, with lighting and plug sockets.

The Barns

There are two fabulous, large stone barns, both attractive and with great potential (subject to the necessary planning). They are in a state of disrepair and would need complete renovation if they were to be developed into living accommodation.

Unusually, the barns are positioned away from the house, which prevents them imposing on the main dwelling. Both have an electric supply. The barns sit opposite each other, with a nice area of sheltered land in between, which is perfect for picnics and sunbathing.

Cattle Barn

‘Cattle Barn’ was, as its name suggests, the old cow byre. One small part of the barn (the section now known as ‘Swallow Barn’) is where the cattle hand used to live. This small part is now in poor condition, with missing slates. In the main bit of the barn, the built in cattle stalls are still there, now storing our logs for the fires. This is a huge barn, we think with the potential to be two stories. It would need extensive renovation work to become habitable, but has amazing potential.

Cider Barn

‘Cider Barn’ currently houses a home gym, fridge freezer, cider press and a range of furniture. It has a lovely mezzanine area, which we always thought would be lovely to add a balcony at the far end to give views of the pond. A separate entrance gives access to a smaller store room underneath the mezzanine. Whilst the barn is used daily and most of it looks to be in usable condition, it would need extensive renovation work to become habitable, but has amazing potential. A separately attached room at the end of the barn had already collapsed before we moved to Gelli (over 11yrs ago), so renovation of this would make the barn even bigger. This is an attractive barn of a good size.

Other Outbuildings

THE GARAGE is situated near the house. It is stone-built, with waney-edge cladding making up the top of the walls. It’s of a good length and is incredibly useful for storing machinery and equipment. However, width-ways, it’s a very tight fit for a car. We can get ours in, but it’s tight. It might be possible to make the stone doorway wider, but we’ve never felt the need to, as there’s enough parking for us on the driveway. The garage also provides the electric for the borehole and the borehole water vessel is in the garage too (it’s only small so doesn’t take up much space). The garage has an electric supply, with lights and double plug socket.

THE WORKSHOP is brick-built. It has an electric supply, with lights and double plug socket.

THE GARDEN STORE is brick-built. It does not have electricity.

THE SILO is an old red brick silo, in a state of disrepair. When we were first shown round the property, we were told it was the oldest silo in Wales, but I’m not sure that that’s true! It’s a nice feature though.

THE COAL SHED is a tiny area built into the bank by the garage, with a slate roof, which has been used to store coal. This isn’t really an outbuilding, but it’s cute so we thought it deserved a mention!
