About this property

  • Pwll Yr Heirn is a delightful country property in west Wales that comprises a large traditional farmhouse (thought to originally date c.1600s – 1700s) that has been extended over the years. The property has had a complete overhaul by the current owners to produce a spacious and comfortable home blending its character features with modern touches. The large scale of the house living accommodation offers the potential to divide to provide a self-contained annexe/cottage if required – stp – subject to planning. Arranged around the house is a traditional courtyard with a garden area, outdoor dining area, stables and further useful outbuildings. The magical feature of this property is its land that extends to about 44 acres (as identified by the yellow boundary on the aerial land plan) and includes an interesting mix of productive pastureland and a stunning woodland valley bordering a stream with idyllic woodland walks to appreciate the wildlife and habitats. The property makes for a special home but also has potential to explore tourism uses to diversify income streams (stp). There is an option to purchase further pastureland and woodland (about 78 acres) that adjoins the property by separate negotiation (as identified within the red boundary on the aerial land plan).

    Accommodation Ground Floor
    A welcoming covered front entrance leads into a reception hall with cloakroom and closet off and doors leading to the principal reception rooms. On the right is a study overlooking the front garden. At the end of the hall is a useful boot room with access to the rear garden while further along the hall are double French doors that open into a stunning living room with French doors opening to the garden and a large wood burning stove set on a raised fireplace providing a warm focal point. A third door on the left of the hall opens into the pretty kitchen dining room with tiled floor, fitted units, island, worktops, space for appliances and another wood burning stove providing a warm ambience. Double doors lead through to a utility area/second kitchen with door to outside. A further reception room or fifth ground floor bedroom with door to front garden and a separate shower room complete this area. A large hallway then leads through to the amazing garden room/conservatory that doubles as a superb dining hall. This room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed A-frame roof timbers, exposed stone walls, slate floor and solid fuel Rayburn range. A door leads off this room to an exciting party barn/gym with bar area, WC and doors to outside.

    Main First Floor
    Stairs rise up from the reception hall to the main first floor area that includes four bedrooms (two with en suite shower rooms) that overlook the front garden. A family bathroom completes this part of the first floor.

    Second First Floor
    A second staircase with gallery landing rises up from the garden room conservatory to the main bedroom that features a vaulted ceiling and beautiful traditional A-frame roof timbers, walk-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room.

    The property is approached by a smart gated tarmacadam drive that sweeps down to the house and courtyard. Behind the house is a large courtyard with ample parking and turning area. To the front of the house is the traditional courtyard that has been landscaped to provide a pretty garden area with a walled lawned area and pond bisected by a walkway and a wooden garden gazebo providing cover for alfresco dining.

    The Outbuildings
    On the side of the of the traditional courtyard are two newly renovated garages double garages/ workshop areas. At the base of the traditional courtyard is a stone built stable block that is perfect for horses and ponies as well as general storage. Adjacent is a modern general purpose barn. At the rear of this barn is a sheltered outdoor BBQ area has been created to enjoy the outside while having shelter. Behind the house is another general purpose modern barn with a main open barn and an enclosed wing that are both perfect for machinery, workshop purposes, feed or animals.

    The Land
    The property extends to about 44 acres (stms – subject to measured survey) as identified by the yellow boundary on the aerial land plan. The land is divided into manageable enclosures for horses, ponies, livestock and feed making like hay. To the north of the property is a stunning woodland valley bordering a stream with waterfalls that is a magical wildlife habitat and haven for flora and fauna. An exciting trail of tracks go around and through the woods providing access to explore and enjoy them. The land as whole offers interesting opportunities for establishing habitats/ re-wilding/ set-aside/ tree planting, other environmental schemes as well as potential tourism uses like glamping and camping (stp).

    There is an option to purchase further pastureland and woodland (about 78 acres - stms) that adjoins the property by separate negotiation (as identified by the red boundary on the aerial land plan). This land will not be sold before the main property in Lot 1 (yellow boundary).

This property offers a stunning home and I love the amazing, attached barns for dining and entertaining. I also like the variety of land around the property and the woodland valley is a magical haven to explore and get away from it all.
