Pioneer House, King Street, Laugharne, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, SA33 4QE

Property description

A stunning six bedroom home with six bathrooms and car parking for around six cars! Pioneer House is situated in the heart of Laugharne on the popular King Street and despite its appearance is a modern house with all the benefits of modern construction, including a ground source heat pump.

Exquisitely finished to the highest of standards throughout you cannot help but be ‘wowed’ as you walk around with two reception rooms plus the really impressive open plan kitchen with dining area and sitting area which hosts an amazing wood burning stove. As you ascend the staircase you find the six bedrooms all of which have an en suite bathroom, the most impressive of which has to be the master bedroom with its beautiful copper free standing bath, dressing room and en suite shower room.
Outside you will find a low maintenance garden that provides off road parking for around six vehicles and with steps leading down through a flower garden to the summer house, lawn and stream.

Perhaps most famously associated with Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, Laugharne is a pretty town situated on the south coast of Carmarthenshire, built around the estuary of the River Taf. Pioneer House is a stunning home, completed just a year ago that occupies an enviable location right in the centre of town.

“My family has a really strong connection to Laugharne,” says the owner. “It was the place where my great, great grandfather established Pioneer Coaches, which for decades was the primary transport company for the whole of West Wales. The plot on which Pioneer House now stands was previously home to the old double-decker bus garage, but after it fell into a state of disrepair, my wife and I decided to develop the site and transform it into this stunning family home.”

“We can honestly say that we put our hearts and souls into the project. The house been designed and built to the absolute highest standards – since we decided to put it on the market we’ve obviously been house hunting, but we can’t find anywhere that even compares. Externally it’s been designed to fit beautifully with the period properties that pepper the town, however internally it’s very much a modern home for modern living. We’ve incorporated the open-plan kitchen, dining and living space that every family wants these days, but we’ve also added a large separate living room and a study/snug/reading room, and arranged across the first and second floors are six generously proportioned en-suite bedrooms. We’ve also added underfloor heating both upstairs and down, which is powered by a ground source heat pump, and there are two log burners so during the winter months it’s wonderfully cosy and warm. It’s a really beautiful house in every single way and so it’s going to be a real wrench to leave.”

“The house sits on an enormous plot so we also benefit from a lovely big private garden that gently slopes down to the banks of the River Coran. We’ve had the whole space professionally landscaped and it now incorporates areas for sitting, relaxing and entertaining, and we have a huge lawn so it’s ideal for children and indeed pets. On the middle section we’ve also had a really attractive log cabin built, which can be used as anything from an outside entertaining space to a home office so it’s yet another lovely feature of the property.”

“My wife and I really enjoy spending time in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living space. It’s a very sociable part of the house and it’s one for all seasons. During the winter months we can settle down in front of the log burner, and when the sun is shining we can push back the bi-folding doors and extend the room right out into the garden.”

“Laugharne is a gorgeous town most famous for its connection to Dylan Thomas – the Boathouse and Writing Shed are just a hop, skip and a jump from our property. There’s an array of lovely shops, cafes and restaurants here, the castle is only moments away and we have some glorious countryside right on our doorstep. No wonder people travel from far and wide to visit!”

“The only reason we’ve decided to move is because my wife would like to keep her horses at home and so we need a property with more land,” says the owner. “However, putting the house on the market has been one of the most difficult decisions we’ve ever had to make. It’s a stunning home in an amazing location so in terms of what we’ll miss, I’d have to say absolutely everything.”

Laugharne offers amenities including a post office with pharmacy, doctors’ surgery, a great general store, bus services, churches, the ruined castle and lush countryside. We’re on the Welsh Coastal Path, which is ideal for walking and cycling. There is a big community spirit to Laugharne, with local groups, organisations and events for every taste and age. Carmarthen is only a short drive away and it’s ideal for a main shop, but we’re also close to lots of amazing places for visits and excursions too.
