Halls are delighted with instructions to offer Plas Issa, Penycae, near Wrexham, for sale by private treaty.

Plas Issa is an attractively appointed, and well equipped agricultural/equestrian farm, situated in a lovely, slightly elevated, rural setting with super views across Cheshire and Shropshire.

The handsome detached double fronted period farmhouse, believed to date back, originally, to 1896, offers well proportioned, versatile and well appointed internal accommodation, presented to a high standard, which retains numerous original features, and also has modern day requirements, including extensive insulation, UPVC double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system. The layout and dimensions of the internal accommodation is shown on the floor plans, later in these sales particulars.

The farmhouse is set within good sized surrounding gardens with mature lawns with floral and herbaceous borders together with a stream and an attractive pool feature.

The farm buildings are particularly worthy of note and are a convenient distance from the farmhouse and provide extensive livestock and machinery accommodation set around a yard which also has a separate access on to a council road. The buildings offer immense potential for a variety of agricultural, equestrian or even commercial usages (subject to any Planning Permission required).

The land is a major feature of the property and is retained in two main parcels, the majority of which being within a ring fence adjoining the Homestead, and is all retained in convenient sized pasture paddocks which are well fenced and have been farmed to a high standard.

The property extends, in all, to approximately 81.96 acres, or thereabouts.

It is most unusual for such a well situated and well appointed small farm such as this to become available for purchase in this area and Halls, the selling agents, strongly recommend an immediate inspection to appreciate its unique nature, location and the huge potential that it has to offer.


Plas Issa is approached off Cristionydd Lane (Acrefair to Penycae) over a part hardcored drive and then on to a concreted drive which leads to the farm buildings and then on to the residence itself.

Whilst enjoying this peaceful location the centres of Wrexham (5.5 miles) and Oswestry (12 miles) are within easy motoring distance, both of which, have an excellent range of local shopping, recreational and educational facilities.

There are a wide range of recreational activities available in the area, to include fishing and golf, with courses at Oswestry, Chirk, Wrexham and Llangollen.
