Attractive Pembrokeshire country house with outbuildings and land
Winter Hall is an impressive country house with its original parts thought to date back to c.1855. Over the years the property has been sympathetically extended and renovated to provide a spacious and comfortable home. We have been informed by the owner that the older East wing was constructed with the finest of teak (with the staircase, doors etc) from the royal yacht, The Royal Sovereign which was dismantled in the royal dockyard of that period. The property was the main residence for the farm that in the past was a mixed farm with poultry, livestock, crops and cereals. This has long ceased and the land is now let out on annual rental agreements. The property is set in about 55.9 acres (stms subject to measured survey) of productive pastureland divided into two blocks. The property has not been offered for sale for several generations and so offers a rare opportunity to acquire a period property with a good amount of land to work and enjoy in this sought after area of Pembrokeshire.
Accommodation Ground Floor
A welcoming front entrance leads into the reception hall with doors leading off to the main reception rooms and a cloak room off at the far end. On the immediate right is the sitting room with a fine marble fireplace surround and slate hearth with views over the gardens. Double doors open into the adjoining dining room that also enjoys garden and views towards the pond. A door on the left of the reception hall leads through to the character kitchen with a beamed ceiling, fitted units, space for appliances and an attractive tiled floor. Sliding French doors open out into the adjoining spacious living room with French doors opening out onto the garden patio and a wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. Doors lead off the living room to a useful play room and utility room that has a door to the rear courtyard. Adjoining the utility room and accessed off the kitchen and courtyard is the rear hallway with walk-in pantry and adjoining separate office/study.
A fine staircase rises up from the reception hall to the first floor accommodation. Two large bedrooms can be found on the east side enjoying views over the gardens and land together with a grand balcony that wraps around this wing. A useful cloakroom is situated off the landing. Moving further along the first floor is a family bathroom with separate shower, a third bedroom and then at the west side of the house is the generous principal bedroom enjoying an en suite shower room.
Winter Hall enjoys attractive landscaped grounds and gardens including lawned areas, patio and seating areas, vegetable patch, greenhouse, mature trees, hedges, bushes, shrubs and flower borders. In the valley to the side of the house is also a very pretty pond area.
An extra appealing feature of the property is the range of useful traditional and modern outbuildings that would serve a range of uses. Attached to the rear of the house is a U-shaped outbuilding set around a courtyard that includes a coal house and general purpose barn. This building could have conversion potential (stp subject to planning). Across the entrance drive is another two storey outbuilding that is used for storage. Again this may also have conversion potential (stp). To the rear of this is a modern stable block with two loose boxes, tack/feed storage room and garaging for a horse box. Moving further along the concrete yard is a superb modern general purpose outbuilding that is perfect for machinery/vehicle storage/workshop purposes etc that was newly built in recent years. Opposite is a general purpose building that has been used for livestock and feed. At the far end of the yard are two large former poultry barns. These are no longer used but due to their scale offer many possible uses.
The farmland with the property extends to about 55.9 acres (stms) and comprises productive pastureland divided into two blocks with some small areas of woodland.
I love the space and land that this property offers.Daniel Rees
