Full description

Tenure: Freehold

According to the Late Mr A T Arber-Cooke who wrote the Diffinitive History of the Buildings of Llandovery, Plasydderwen was built around the year 1750 and is one of the oldest houses of its type in Llandovery. At one time it was occupied as a high class school for girls.

We understand that it is a Grade II Listed building and fortunately many of the original features of its type have been retained.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors with the ground floor comprising entrance hall, living rooms off on either side, shower room, breakfast room and kitchen. From the hallway an oak staircase (probably original) leads to the first floor landing with 3 bedrooms and bathroom and further similar staircase to the second floor with 3 further bedrooms and 1 through bedroom.

On the left hand side of Plasydderwen is an attached building until recently used as a small shop with room above. We understand that at one time this had been the entrance to a malt house and cobbled yard at the rear. The ownership of Plasydderwen has passed through a number of families since it was originally built and encompasses much of the history of Llandovery which is an ancient market town with its Charter dating back to the year 1485.

Being situated as it is on the A40 trunk road Llandovery is convenient for many of the other towns of West Wales, the county town of Carmarthen and the capital city of Cardiff being within 75 miles. The area around the town is still largely devoted to agriculture or forestry purposes with the Cambrian Mountains to the north and the Brecon Beacons National Park to the south.

The town has several places of worship, post office, banks, supermarket, doctors surgery and cottage hospital. There are a number of sporting organisations and clubs and station on the Heart of Wales line from Shrewsbury to Swansea and with connections thereon to London.
