Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Llwyn-Y-Celyn is in essence a mid-Victorian country house though with earlier origins from around the 17th Century. It was built to make the most of the stunning views out to the south and east and its known and documented as one of the historic houses of Carmarthenshire.

Llwyn-Y-Celyn is situated on the edge of the Cambrian Mountain in a quiet rural location with views down over the Towy Valley with a backdrop of the mountains at the west of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The market town of Llandovery is some 3½ miles away. Despite this rural location the A40 at Llandeilo provides good access to the M4 or east to Brecon and the Usk Valley. The station at Llandovery is on the Heart of Wales Railway line with services to both Swansea and Shrewsbury. This area of Carmarthenshire provides great opportunities for walking and riding in a vast area of countryside or fishing in the River Towy. Well known private schools include Llandovery College and Christ College Brecon.

Agents Note 
Internally there are some fine reception rooms and the current owner has undertaken some improvement work though this is an on-going project. The study and dining room are approached from the long hall and have good period features including coving, wide bay windows, alcoves and handsome fireplaces. The extremely impressive end sitting room was designed to make the most of the stunning views and has recently had new double-glazed windows. The kitchen and utility rooms to the rear are generally unmodernised. Behind the hall are the billiard room and the back stairs to allow access to a separate 2 bedroom and kitchen annexe, should it be required. There is a wine Cellar with original storage bins and racks. The handsome main staircase leads up and around to a light landing with the three front bedrooms being well proportioned and having stunning views. Two further bedrooms are either side of the landing with door and steps down to the annexe bedrooms. There are in total three bedrooms.

Gardens & Grounds 
The gardens were principally designed to make the most of the stunning views. Terracing and lawns to the front run to the boundary and are a stunning afternoon sitting area. The former kitchen garden is further round, whilst closer to the unused front drive is a paddock. Surrounding the whole are a host of fine specimen trees, shrubs and woodland which combine to create a riot of colour in the spring.

The two principle outbuildings lie off the rear yard close to the back drive and comprise of Stable Block and Barns/Coach House. The former has a lapsed planning consent for a 3 bedroom cottage.

Additional Land 
A short distance to the east of the property and forming an important part of the view is an additional 12.46 acres. This is not included in the initial sale but could be made available by separate negotiation.

Mains and spring water. Mains electricity. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating. Security system.
