Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in a convenient rural setting village within easy reach of the facilities available in Milford Haven. Rock House briefly comprises a detached residence of considerable charm and character that stands on a large plot that may have potential for a further dwelling, subject to the appropriate planning consents being obtained. Ideally suited to those purchasers looking for a well proportioned property within good sized grounds all in a convenient setting that is suitable as a family home, retirement property or holiday purposes with no forward chain, viewing is highly recommended.

Situation: - Rock House occupies a pleasant setting in the small rural village of Upper Thornton which lies within some 2 miles or so of the centre of Milford Haven which has the benefit of an extensive range of facilities and amenities including a popular Marina that offers several restaurants and cafes around the harbour. The town also benefits from several supermarkets, primary and comprehensive schools and a wide array of shops and services. The superb scenery of the renowned Pembrokeshire coastline and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park lies within easy reach with the pretty coastal inlet of Sandy Haven being some 3 miles or so and there are a large number of sandy beaches all within a 30 minute drive of the property. The county town of Haverfordwest with its extensive range of facilities and amenities also lies within easy reach. The setting of Rock House within Upper Thornton is ideally suited for potential purchasers looking for a home in a rural village setting that is conveniently located to the services and facilities within the local towns and also within easy reach of the coastline.

Description: - Rock House comprises a traditionally constructed detached cottage of considerable charm and character that stands in good sized grounds that we feel may have the potential for a further building plot, for a further property or even a shepherds hut or similar letting unit subject to the necessary consents being obtained, although it is equally suited as a sizeable garden offering an interesting proposition for purchaser who enjoy the benefit of good sized grounds. Set back off the road that passes through the village with a small stone fronted forecourt. The accommodation includes :-

Entrance Porch: - stone faced with door opening into :-

Entrance Hall: - with radiator and stairs leading to the first floor and an arch opening into:-

Sitting Room/Bedroom 3: - 3.10 x 4.16 (10'2" x 13'7") - This could no doubt be restyled to provide a spacious bedroom if required and has a focal point of a stone fireplace and surround, with a slate hearth and timber mantlepiece with window to the fore, radiator and alcove with wall light.

Equally this area maybe suitable for a lodge or shepherd's hut or similar that could be let for holiday purposes - again subject to the necessary consents being obtained. This garden enjoys an aspect looking over nearby farmland and is laid mainly to lawn. To the side of the house and leading to the garage (4.90 x 3.05) is an off road car parking area and the grounds include a greenhouse and former avaries. There is a shed/stable within the grounds and an area that was also used as a vegetable plot.

LOCAL AUTHORITY: Pembrokeshire County Council, County Hall, Haverfordwest, SA61 1TP. Tel: . Council Tax Band E.

General Remarks: - Rock House is a detached cottage of considerable charm and character occupying a most convenient rural setting within a popular village location that lies within easy reach of the facilities and amenities available in all of the major towns of the area with the stunning scenery of the Pembrokeshire coastline also within easy reach. Whilst the property does require some general upgrading in order to realise its full potential, it provides a great opportunity and could no doubt comprise a most comfortable character cottage with well proportioned rooms. One of the major features of this home is the large plot that is currently laid mainly to well established lawns which offer potential purchasers the ability to create their own individual design within the garden. However, we feel that there is also the possibility that the garden maybe suitable for a separate building plot, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained, and interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries in respect of this. We feel viewing of Rock House is highly recommended.
