Stunning property collection set in an idyllic valley
Carreg Gwenlais was originally a small livestock farm with parts of the original farmhouse thought to date c.1600s.The current owner has sympathetically extended into neighbouring stone barns and re-modelled the main farmhouse to provide a stunning main house that retains character features while seamlessly blending in modern touches. Tradtional stone barns have also been converted to provide 3 comfortable and modern cottages for holiday letting etc. Together with new garaging and extensive landscaping in the grounds and gardens, the property has bene transformed into an impressive small Welsh Estate in a ring fence of about 27 acres (stms subject to measured survey) of woodland and pastureland.
Accommodation Main House
The main entrance leads into a breath-taking reception hall with an oak framed vaulted ceiling with natural light flooding in from the full height windows overlooking the inner courtyard beyond. A double sided wood burning stove provides a warm focal point both for the hall and the sitting room on the left with French doors leading out to the front garden. Steps lead down to the right from the hall an inner hall with cloakroom and utility room off. On the right is dining room, again with a wood burning stove and French doors to the front. Adjacent is the large drawing room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove and vestibule entrance leading out to the front. Doors lead off the drawing room to a peaceful study area and a separate utility room.
A light corridor running past the pretty inner courtyard leads to the rear of hub of the house with a large kitchen dining room featuring ample light, bespoke fitted kitchen and a large black Aga Range taking centre stage. A useful store room/pantry is situated off the dining area. Two sets of French doors lead off the kitchen and separate dining areas to the rear courtyard. Beyond the kitchen is the indoor heated swimming pool providing the perfect relaxing retreat.
Two separate staircases lead up from the reception hall to the first floor accommodation areas. The main staircase leads to the right hand side of the house that includes the master bedroom suite with en suite shower room. Two further en suite bedrooms are found on this floor together with a separate family bathroom. The second staircase leads to the guest suite on the left hand side of the house featuring a generous bedroom with separate dressing room with bath and separate shower room.
Across the courtyard are three attractive self-contained cottages (two with two bedrooms and one with one bedroom) that have been thoughtfully converted from traditional stone barns. Each has modern fitted kitchens, sitting rooms and cosy bedrooms. These are perfect for holiday letting etc to provide an income stream.
Externally, Outbuildings & the Land
A pretty driveway bisects the pasture fields and leads up the property. The house and cottages are surrounded by landscaped grounds and gardens including mature trees, lawned areas, bushes, shrubs and flower beds. To the rear of the house are further useful buildings including garage and workshop with loft over.
The farmhouse and cottages are perfectly located within a ring fence of its own land that comprises established woodland and pretty meadows and pasture paddocks that are idyllic habitats for wildlife and ideal for the keeping of animals. There is also an ancient Yew Tree in one of the fields below the house. In all, the property extends to about 27 acres (stms).
