A welcoming vestibule with charming original seats leads through an impressive oak door with metal studs to the reception hall with an attractive stone floor. On the left is the large drawing room with stone floor, beamed ceiling and a lovely inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. On the right of the hall is the kitchen dining room again with stone floor, beamed ceiling, fitted units and a smart black Aga taking centre stage. At the rear of the house is a cosy snug/ study with a wood burning stove. A cloakroom off the hall completes the ground floor.
A beautiful wide staircase rises up from the rear hall to the first floor accommodation that includes 4 bedrooms (2 en suite) with oak floors. The remaining 2 bedrooms share the use of a family bathroom.
The stairs continue to the second floor that includes 2 storage rooms and a vast open family room with wood floor, vaulted ceiling, imposing roof timbers and exposed gable end stone walls.
The property sits in generous landscaped grounds including a gated entrance leading down to a smart gravel forecourt, bordered by lawned areas, mature trees and bushes. Flowing along the south-west boundary is the River Dulais, a tributary of the River Towy, a spawning river for Salmon, and Sewin (sea trout). Neuadd Fawr enjoys single bank fishing rights upon the river within its boundaries. There is a weir just below the house with a fish ladder to enable the salmon to migrate up the river. The house is framed by a charming stone wall while to the rear is a lovely private lawned garden nestled by trees.
