Capel Iwan, Newcastle Emlyn


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
We present to market a lovely character stone 3/4 bed detached house on the edge of Capel Iwan village with just over 4 ACRES of land to the rear, split into 2 main paddocks, one of which is partly overgrown. There may also be a possibility to build to the left of the main house as there was planning permission to build a property on the site previously but it has now lapsed.

In the spacious house there is a hallway, bedroom 4 / study with bathroom or ensuite off (this part of the house could be used with reception room 1 and be utilised as a little annex for an elderly relative if required), a dining room, country style kitchen, large utility / store room, reception room 2, store room (previously the Granary), on the first floor there are 3 bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Outside there are various useful outbuildings, including 2 stables and barn/workshop with power and lighting, to the rear with off street parking.(see plan)

This is a super traditional holding that has been part of the village community for many years and provides for lots of space both inside and out and is located just a 10 minute drive to the local Secondary School and facilities of Newcastle Emlyn town.

Access to the rear is by a driveway to the left of the property giving plenty of parking space to the rear near the outbuildings. Various lawned areas are near the house with the land as shown on the land plan.

Part of the land to the left of the house previously had planning for a property (now lapsed) and it may be possible to get this planning renewed. Please make your own enquiries with Carmarthenshire County County.

The Outbuildings

A lot of potential for conversion here (see floorplan of outbuildings attached) with a varied collection of outbuildings all located to the rear of the property.

The Land

The Land amounts to just over 4 Acres, mostly gently sloping to the South and is laid to pasture. One field will need clearing or perhaps reseeding as it is now partly overgrown, however the second field is in good order as the local farmer has a verbal agreement to graze his sheep on the land until September 2021.
