About this property

  • The cottage has been known by different names over the years including Parsonage House, Brynhelyg (Willow Hill) and Church Cottage. It is grade II listed and the provisional listing describes it as being:

    “Probably constructed early nineteenth century as the parsonage to St Andrew's church. The existing church is an 1866 rebuilding of a smaller church of 1814. The cottage is shown on the 1847 Tithe Map as owned by the church - by the Rev. David Evan Morgan - and occupied by David James who was also shown as responsible for the parish roads and pound…. Large fireplace with timber bressummer surviving in former kitchen to left. Exposed rafters and joists in extension and exposed rafters on upper floor of house….Included for its special architectural interest as a good example of a modest west Wales vernacular house of the early nineteenth century. Group Value with St Andrew's church.”

    The stone walls, which are over two feet thick, are limewashed and coloured with a natural earth pigment. The accommodation consists of a living-room, dining-room, kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom. Over the years the property has been used a bolt-hole and a successful holiday let.

    Accommodation Ground Floor
    A welcoming front entrance door leads into the living room with slate slab floor, beamed ceiling, wood panelling and a character inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. Adjacent is the dining room, again with slate slab floor, wood panelling and a beamed ceiling. At the end of the cottage is a charming kitchen breakfast room with an impressive, vaulted ceiling, roof timbers, fitted units, Belfast sink, space for appliances, antique cooking range for show and a half-glazed door to the front garden.

    First Floor
    Stairs rise up from the dining room to the first-floor accommodation that includes three comfortable bedrooms, two overlooking the front garden and one the rear church yard. The floor is completed by a bathroom with bath together with an electric shower over.

    Externally
    The property enjoys a large forecourt parking area with ample room for several cars, boat/boat trailer etc. There is also a large modern garage/workshop/boat shed with steel frame that features a main storage area together with a separate room at the rear of the garage that could be used as a peaceful study/studio/games room. The mature landscaped gardens in front of the cottage are stunning and include a large lawned area, mature trees, bushes, shrubs and flower borders. Steps leads down from the garden to a patio terrace area in front of the cottage that is a sheltered sun trap.

    Adjacent to the garden area is a delightful pasture meadow that is a natural habitat and a haven for wildlife. It would also be a perfect home for a horse/pony, chickens etc as well as a playground for dogs and children. In all, the property extends to about 1.67 acres (stms – subject to measured survey).
