An extremely inviting home; Pilglas Cottage dates back to the late 1800s. It is full of character yet benefits of all the modern building standards having had a complete restoration and extension of the original Cottage in 2016. It is steeped in history and its location is very close to the site of Turner's famous painting of Llansteffan Castle c.1795. The land benefits from views of the River Towy and coast. There is a concrete / patio area in the garden where a hot tub / swim spa could be located.
Adjoining land to the rear (owned by a third party) has recently being planted for a maturing woodland, which will host a variety of wildlife. Opposite the house is a pond, where ducks and geese can be viewed throughout the year.
It benefits from being very close by to Towy Boat Club. The Boat Club members have the opportunity to participate in rowing, sailing or powerboating.
