A superb lifestyle property having been modernised by its present owners to an excellent standard but retaining much of its character and charm. Offering 3 bedroom farmhouse accommodation, there is also an annexe which was utilised as a 3 bedroom cottage in need of some sympathetic modernisation and work. Various other outbuildings include a multi purpose Atcost building with stables inside and set within its own 20 acres of mostly grazing land but some mature woodland with meandering stream going down through. The farmhouse dates back to 1297 approximately when it was added to the Laugharne Charter, it was known as a Brangeweys, the oldest part of the main house being the inglenook fireplace in the dining room is about 1700 when the property was owned by the Skeel family of Pembrokeshire. Once a working farm in the ownership of the Lewis family for 5 generations. The land has been reduced to a smallholding of 20 acres of very free drainage old red sandstone soil. It is thus ideal for an equestrian property or to secure complete privacy. The main farmhouse which faces south and has extensive country views is of Georgian design and has 3 reception rooms the largest of which was added as an extension in 1999. There are 3 large bedrooms, the master being en-suite with a large family bathroom, the kitchen has an Aga and is large enough to act as a kitchen/diner. Attached is a large cloakroom with downstairs WC. Off the back door lobby is a huge utility room which also act as a tack room. There is a stone built double garage with automatic fold over door and 2 large workshops. The whole property is surrounded by its own land comprising three 4-5 acre fields, a 2 acre field and a 2 acre valley woodland with a meandering stream and productive fresh water spring. The house is 150 yds down a private drive and is 5 minutes from Laugharne township. To the front of the property is an easily managed garden with lawn and trees while to the back the property has a productive vegetable garden with some large raised beds and a cut flower garden. 50 yds north of the house is a 3 bedroom cottage with a large open plan dining room with log burner and a bathroom on the ground floor and 3 bedrooms and a cloakroom on the first floor. Continued in rooms.
