About this property

  • Nantceiro is an impressive, Grade II, Welsh Victorian country house dating back to 1847 with later additions in 1878. Nestled within its own grounds and surrounded by mature trees, the property benefits from wonderful views over the Rheidol River Valley.

    The British Listed Buildings website says it is "Included as a substantial gentry house in late Georgian style, one of the remarkable group of houses around Aberystwyth built for members of the professional classes.

    Extensive restoration works have been carried out at the property, particularly to the northern part of the house. The southern part is largely as it was when originally built. Subject to listed building consent (if required) there is still scope for further restoration, in particular the completion of the cinema room and conversion of the third floor accommodation.

    As a result of the restoration work, Nantceiro offers an elegant amalgam of period and modern, providing well-proportioned rooms and retaining many of the original features including, original sash windows with shutters, ceiling cornicing, original fireplaces with decorative inserts and wood panelling. In addition there are some new features, many of them using reclaimed materials appropriate to the building, including heated slate floors in the Kitchen and Breakfast Room, polished granite floor in the cloakroom, the parquet and wood block floor and Coalbrookdale fire surround in the Drawing Room, along with the elegant staircase from the master suite to the fourth floor in the southern wing, which has been made using reclaimed pitch pine.

    Nantceiro is for sale as a whole and includes:

    Main house, Coach House, stables, workshop and gardens. Porthceiro 2 bedroom cottage. Ty'n Lon 1 bedroom cottage. Y Cwch Gwenyn (old longhouse with potential to convert (stp – subject to planning). Pastureland to the east, about 15 acres (stms – subject to measured survey).

    Photographs taken 2014 onwards.
