Exciting opportunity to reinstate a coastal home
According to the British Listed Buildings website, Plas Y Pinc is Probably mid C19, the location of this cottage suggests its origins as a labourers cottage, perhaps tied to the nearby farm. The building is small, but substantially built and with simple but good detail.
It is Listed Grade II as an exceptionally well-preserved cottage, a characteristic building type in Pembrokeshire; this example retains good original character, and exhibits regionally characteristic features such as the grouted roof.
It is believed that the cottage has been uninhabited since c1957. Over the years the current owner has obtained planning and listed building permission (now extant after commencing works) to reinstate and sympathetically renovate and transform the cottage into a 2/3 bedroom cottage.
The property also benefits from a useful block of adjoining pastureland for livestock, horses, amenity use. In all, the property is set in about 10.39 acres (stms subject to measured survey).
The property is accessed via a right of way that runs through a neighbouring farmyard and down a track. There is also an agricultural track running on edge of its own fields to the council road.
Further information on the planning and listed building consents are available from the agent.

Water: Mains water pipeline laid across the fields and standpipe adjacent to house with pipe laid to house. Separate pipes/meter for water to all the troughs in each of the fields.
Electricity: The house has previously had an electricity supply and the supply is on a pole close by.
Private drainage that will need to be renewed.
Telephone: Lines run in front of the property.
Please note, building regulations approval is different from the approved, extant plans. Advice given to the owner at the time was that it was likely (but not certain) that there would be flexibility on the layout of the interior so long as the exterior footprint and shape of the building as per the planning permission was conformed to. Interested parties should check with the planning authority as there may be a need for applications for minor variations to the approved planning applications in this instance.
