Description 
Henllys (Old Court) is a most appealing Grade II* listed country house of historical importance within the area. The Henllys estate is once believed to occupy over 1500 acres but was divided into smaller farms in the 1920's leaving the original manor house with around 3.3 acres. The original adjacent outbuildings and coach house conversion are under separate ownership. The property has remained in the same family ownership since the late 1970's since when it has been a wonderful family home with bundles of space for the children to play and a field ideal for keeping ponies or livestock. The main house with its far reaching views offers spacious accommodation with many original features but would benefit from some upgrading. The detached 2 bedroom cottage (known as Bailiff's House) also included in the sale is presented to a good standard providing comfortable and surprisingly spacious living space.

Location 
Henllys is set in an idyllic rural position about 2 miles north of the popular market town of Llandovery which lies on the River Towy. The famous town offers everyday facilities and shopping, state and independent schools and national rail connections. The breath-taking scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park lies to the south of Llandovery offering an exciting playground for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits. The A40 that runs through Llandovery provides quick access to the neighbouring towns of Brecon (about 23 miles to the east) and Carmarthen (about 28 miles to the south-west). The town of Llandeilo is about 13 miles to the south-west with the A483 taking you further south to the M4 at junction 49 (about 26 miles to the south-west) providing quick access to Swansea (about 37 miles), South Wales, the Severn bridge and beyond. Cardiff is about 57 miles away to the south-east via a scenic and direct route across the Brecon Beacons.
