INTRODUCTION
A gracious, prestigious, and sympathetically modernised home, situated in the centre of the harbour village of Solva, with a detached three storey coach house, offering commercial premises on the ground floor and planning permission to further develop the first and second floors. A substantial rear garden arranged into tiered, enjoyable spaces totals nearly half an acre. Built in 1832, Tan-Yr-Allt (Under the Hill), was constructed as a merchant’s villa, for a sea trader named Richard Williams, who resided at the property when managing his fleet of 6 clippers in the nearby harbour, at a time when commercial sea trading in West Wales was nearing its peak. The property’s architecture is typical of its period, with a double fronted symmetrical façade with sash windows, and it is constructed with a mixture of local dressed stone – including quoins of ‘carer bwdy’ stone and walls of Pembrokeshire granite. A Virginia creeper plant provides colour and added character to the front.

Offering 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 3 reception rooms, this elegant home and former B&B, has been lovingly renovated by its current owners, who have enjoyed its ambience and environment for over 18 years. Many of the principle rooms’ original floors have been lifted to allow for the installation of damp proof coursing and under floor heating, and an environmentally friendly and financially lucrative biomass heating system has been installed to provide hot water and heating to both properties.

Moments from the property one can enjoy the beautiful harbour popular with sailing enthusiasts, and the villages’ range of cafes, restaurants, and pubs. Solva also offers a shop with post office, and a doctor’s surgery. Numerous footpaths provide walks in all directions. Pembrokeshire’s coastal path connects Solva with nearby Gwadn and Newgale to the south and Caerfai to the north, with many fascinating coves in between. The UK’s smallest city, St Davids, is three miles to the north, and Pembrokeshire’s county town of Haverfordwest is 13 miles to the South East.
