About this property

  • Alltyrodyn Mansion is a substantial three storey late Georgian Grade II* listed country mansion thought to date c.1827 built in the style of the famous architect John Nash and retaining many original features throughout including much attractive plasterwork. It is believed that the Alltyrodyn Estate was the sixth largest in the county in 1873. The listing describes it as “…the largest and most monumental country house in this part of Cardiganshire/Carmarthenshire.”
    The stunning house has been a magical family home for the current owners for many years and offers purchasers an opportunity to acquire one of the famous houses of Wales either as home and/or to explore other commercial avenues including boutique B&B, hotel, wedding venue etc (subject to planning).
    Accommodation Ground Floor
    A stunning portico entrance leads through double doors into the grand reception hall with exposed floorboards and a fireplace providing a warm focal point. A door leads off to the left and dining room with fireplace, and views across the front of the house. On the right of the reception hall is the drawing room again with fireplace, full-length mirror in frame and views across the front gardens. A doorway with fan lights over leads through from the hall to the inner hall with moulded stair hall cornice and staircase. On the right of the inner hall is a small reception room/extra bedroom. Beyond is the impressive ball room with cornice, arched recesses each end, flanked by matching display alcoves and built in cupboards and views across the side gardens. On the opposite side of the floor, the inner hall leads past the pantry, a cosy snug/office with fireplace, access to the wine cellar and through to the kitchen breakfast room with white Aga set in stone surround. A scullery and larder are situated off the kitchen together with a side entrance leading to the rear courtyard.
    First Floor
    A beautiful wide staircase rises up from the inner hall passing a striking arched leaded window to the first floor accommodation that includes 6 bedrooms overlooking the gardens and grounds. These share the use of a central bathroom. A doorway leads off in the north corner to the rear wing that provides two further bedrooms and a bathroom. A centre arched French window is situated at the front of the house over the ground floor portico.
    Second Floor
    Stairs continue to the second floor that has been used as two self-contained apartments in the past. The floor currently provides 6 attic bedrooms, two bathrooms and two former kitchen areas.

    Externally
    Rear Courtyard & Bell Tower
    To the rear of the house is the old courtyard and bell tower. The south-wing of the courtyard is in disrepair with a dilapidated roof etc but offers great potential to restore for a variety of modern day uses.
    Old Coach House & Stables
    Located just to the north of the house and dated 1840, the old twin coach house and stables are attractive buildings that currently provide 6 traditional stalls, 5 loose boxes, an old tack room, store rooms, garaging/machinery storage and loft. These buildings also offer potential for conversion to other uses subject to planning. The stable block at the north end is attached to the old Home Farmhouse that is in third party ownership together with the old Home Farm barns (area marked in blue on land plan).

    Gardens, Grounds & Woodland
    The property enjoys beautiful and private gardens and grounds with a stunning tree lined driveway, mature trees and woodland, shrubs, bushes, flower beds and woodland walks.
