Brongest, Newcastle Emlyn

  • Bedrooms: 5
SOLD - SIMILAR PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED !!! Porthyrhyd is a 5 bed family home which would easily split into a 4 bed house plus a 1 bed self-contained annexe if desired - ideal for the extended family moving together or else with the potential for a letting income if desired, subject to consents. Adjacent to the house is a separate, detached stone building. This has been used as an office for over 16 years and has permission for commercial use. It would, however, lend itself admirably to a residential conversion - again for the extended family or for letting purposes - subject to consents. The whole property enjoys plenty of parking and large gardens with a river boundary, extending in total to approximately 0.5 acre.

The house itself briefly comprises 5 bedrooms, 2 en-suites, 2 family bathrooms, a kitchen, a utility room and 2 large reception rooms. Please look at the floor plan to see how the accommodation could be split if desired. It benefits from LPG central heating and nearly all of the windows are double glazed.

The office benefits from its own LPG central heating system and, again, most of the windows are double glazed.

The property sits in the heart of the thriving village of Brongest. It is approximately 4 miles from the bustling market town of Newcastle Emlyn, which benefits from a primary and secondary school, leisure centre, swimming pool and a range of local shops, cafés and pubs. The beautiful Cardigan Bay coastline is only a 10 minute drive away.

This is a stone building which briefly comprises a hallway, kitchen / store, WC and large office room. It has been used as an office for over 16 years.

Porthyrhyd is situated in the heart of the village. To the front of the house is a small garden area with mature shrubs and space for parking. There is further parking to the side of the house, to the side of the office / annexe and across the road next to the barn. Immediately behind the buildings is a large paved patio. This is home to 2 good sized timber sheds and a log store. The gardens lie behind the house and office / annexe. These are a blend between

cultivated garden and wildlife haven merging with the surrounding countryside. There are flower borders, a wildlife pond with bog garden, soft fruit bushes, apple, plum and damson trees and a vegetable garden with raised beds, but there are also banks and woodpiles left for nettles, birds and insects. A stream runs along one side of the garden and the river Ceri

is at the bottom. Across the road from the office / annexe is a stone barn, measuring (internally) 8.9m long x 4.66m narrowing to 2.7m wide. There is an attached stone pigsty. This provides useful storage space, but would be ideally suited to conversion, subject to the normal consents. The entire property extends to approx half an acre.


Directions: From Newcastle Emlyn, proceed down the main street, through the town centre, and over the bridge. Continue straight up the hill on the B4571 and stay on this road for approximately 3 miles, passing through Blaen-cil-llech. Take the next turning left, signed for Brongest. After about half a mile (just after Bronllys Garage), turn left and go down the hill into the village of Brongest. Porthyrhyd is on the left hand side in the middle of the village, just opposite the telephone box and a right hand turning.
