Trawsmawr Manor Farm is a property that has stood witness to history, parts of the property dating as far back as the 15th century, with links to historical figures such as Oliver Cromwell and the magistrate from the infamous Rebecca Riots.

The accommodation has been added to over the years, and now stands as a family size home, with three staircases, six bedrooms, three reception rooms and three washrooms. There are a wealth of character features throughout, from the inglenook fireplace and the exposed beams to the nooks, crannies and remnants of a mysterious flight of stairs that now leads nowhere. The layout and size of the house lends itself to a sizeable family, with potential for multi-generational living or even as B&B, with views across the pond and surrounding countryside.

The property stands within 3.75 acres, which includes two paddocks, an orchard, polytunnel, productive vegetable garden, woodland walk, outbuilding, livestock shelter, greenhouse, and lawned garden. The wildlife-rich pond, measuring approximately acre and fed by a stream and spring, is a stunning feature and offers a space of true natural beauty in this peaceful location. Cross to the island by boat or bridge, to find a perfect picnic spot.

Trawsmawr Manor offers the opportunity to live the good life in rural Carmarthenshire. Whether you wish to collect your own eggs for breakfast in the morning, watch nature at its best from the comfort of your own home, or revel in the character and history that a rare property such as this affords, we highly recommend viewing.

The County town of Carmarthen lays claim to being the oldest town in Wales, boasting a strong Roman heritage dating back to AD c75. Situated on the River Towy eight miles north of its mouth at Carmarthen Bay, the town is the location of the headquarters of Dyfed Powys Police, the Carmarthen Campus of The University of Wales, Trinity Saint David and The West Wales General Hospital. The town is well served by numerous primary schools and two secondary schools offering education through the medium of Welsh and English. The former cattle market in the heart of the town has undergone massive regeneration and the new shopping centre now houses most high street names, an Apollo Cinema complex, restaurants, bars and a multi storey car park. The town is also served by direct inter city trains from West Wales to London.

Come on in...

...through the L shaped hall with sizeable under stairs storeroom/ office, and into the family size lounge, with two picture windows looking out over the lawn and towards the lake, with an exposed stone wall featuring an inbuilt cupboard and bookshelves, wooden ceiling beams and an open fireplace with slate hearth. Across the hallway and right into the coat room, with space for fridge freezers and with a shelved pantry area, and space to store your housework equipment. From here, the utility with single drainer sink and plumbing for a washing machine is only steps away. The family room at the rear offers a list of potential uses, from a games room to a bedroom, second lounge to a study, and has an ensuite bathroom and WC. This could be a room used for multi-generational living purposes or as a space to pursue a hobby or work from home, and it has outside access through the small porch to the side.

The kitchen, which maintains its period charm with exposed beams and pine units, a recessed Rayburn and terracotta coloured flooring, enjoys triple aspect windows. A feature oak door leads into the cwtch, a room which offers a cosy retreat with wooden beamed ceiling and an inglenook within which stands a multi-fuel burner that duels as an open fireplace. This room provides the potential for multi-generational living, offering a separate living room to that of the main lounge, with a door leading out to the rear and a staircase leading up to the games room, which could also be utilised as a bedroom. There is also doorway access back into the main body of the house leading onto the landing, from which you can access all six bedrooms, the family bathroom, shower room and attic spaces.

There are four bedrooms to the front of the house: a master bedroom, two doubles and a single, all overlooking the pond, gardens and mature trees, and each with wardrobe or dresser space. A small study area leads into the generously sized master bedroom. Bedroom 3 has a built-in wardrobe and bedroom 4 a cast iron fireplace. The bedrooms have easy access to the family bathroom, with wash hand basin, panelled bath, WC and airing cupboard. A through room, which could be utilised as a study, dressing room or even as over flow sleeping accommodation, leads to a second landing space from which open two further bedrooms, and a shower room. The shower room offers a shower cubicle fitted in winter 2017, WC and wash hand basin, and services the two adjacent bedrooms, one single and one double, which both offer wardrobe space and views to the rear gardens. A staircase leads down from the landing to the Family Room.

Step Outside...

... and out onto the south-east facing lawn, with flower borders to either side, and a view out onto the glorious spring and stream fed pond, measuring approximately of an acre, with a backdrop of trees, through which the current owners have created a woodland walk so you are able to walk around the majority of the pond. Walk through the mature bushes and through the kissing gate, and step onto the wooden bridge with hand rope that takes you onto the pond s island; the ideal picnic spot to enjoy with family and friends.

To the side of the property there is a glass greenhouse, and up the hillside there is an orchard of fruit trees, vegetable beds and a polytunnel the perfect place to start if you wish to grow your own market garden and be able to cook with your own homegrown organic ingredients.

Adjacent to this is a paddock with shelter, suitable for livestock such as sheep and ponies. Two gates lead into a second paddock with shelter. Close by to these paddocks stands an outbuilding ideal for storing feed, outdoor equipment and firewood.

The property is initially approached by a gravel driveway, leading up to a parking area providing space for several vehicles and access into a garage/workshop, and gateway access leads across the front of the house and towards the two paddocks.
