Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This is a very special house, combining traditional Pembrokeshire character with modern high-quality materials, to provide a unique 4 bedroom home set in 2.45 acres of beautiful, private, landscaped private grounds. The vaulted ceilings of the main reception rooms and the integrated conservatory are stunning features that will not fail to delight. It was designed by a local architect and built in 1998 on the site of a working farm, as a horseshoe shaped, single storey dwelling to resemble the original style of the farm. The double garage and workshop offer potential to create further accommodation (subject to any necessary planning consents), which would be ideal for someone wanting to create an annexe, or possibly B&B accommodation.

The accommodation, all one one floor, comprises: Entrance Hall, Dining Room, Living Room, Kitchen, Conservatory/Sun Room, Four Bedrooms (although one is currently used as a Study), Bathroom with claw-foot freestanding bath and quadrant shower, Shower Room, and Utility.

The unique design of the house means that all the rooms have beautiful views out to the different parts of the garden.

There is a useful Tractor/Implement shed (9m x 6m) with adjacent hardstanding for motorhome or boat, in addition to geodesic dome glasshouse, timber summerhouse and various log stores.

We Say

This is a very special house, combining traditional Pembrokeshire character with modern high-quality materials, to provide a unique home set in 2.45 acres of beautiful, private, landscaped private grounds.

The Owners Say

We purchased Rhyd y Fferm from the previous owners within minutes of experiencing it; it was love at first sight.

Everyone who has visited over the past thirteen years speaks of the peace and tranquillity, of the stress-free lifestyle we enjoy and the wonderful nights sleep they have.

The house and gardens are cared for and cherished and the walk down to the beach before dinner is a highlight.

We hope the next owners of Rhyd y Fferm will love all that it has to offer as much as we have.

Come on In

Entering from the sheltered front courtyard, the welcoming terracotta tiled Entrance Hall leads on one side to the Utility Room, the Kitchen with its range of modern country-style units and shelved larder, and on the other to the Dining Room and spacious Living Room, both with vaulted ceilings and sprung beech floors. Beyond this is the Master Bedroom Suite, with adjacent Bathroom, fitted with a claw-footed double ended bath and shower with monsoon head as well as wc and vanity wash hand basin. The Study/Bedroom 4 is currently a through-room to create more space, but could have the wall replaced if required as a separate bedroom.

On the other side of the 'horseshoe', adjacent to the Kitchen is the stunning Conservatory/Sun Room, with french doors opening on to the rear terrace and a wood burning stove for winter cosiness. A corridor leads to the remaining two Bedrooms and Shower Room.

The unique design of the house means that all the rooms have beautiful views out to the different parts of the garden.

A door from the end of the corridor also leads to the integral, centrally heated Double Garage, with twin double doors, and the Workshop behind.

Step Outside

The garden at Rhyd-y-Fferm is unique in that it contains a number of rare and unusual tree species, many of which are beginning to approach maturity; it also has tremendous potential, as these specimen plants provide solid and exciting focal points from a design perspective. Clever choice of plants and trees ensures that the garden has colour throughout the year.

There are a number of large magnolias, the magnolia soulangeana or Chinese magnolia is particularly impressive. The shape and foliage of magnolias make them very attractive for underplanting and designing around; there are a number of smaller species which provide fantastic foliage contrast. A cloud pruned pine and a Lebanese cedar are highlights of the conifer garden.

Especially rare is the Juglans mandshurica, the Manchurian Walnut, which is beginning to head towards maturity and is surrounded by an arboretum of different oak species. Near the lower pond the metasequoia glyptostrboides, dawn redwoods, rated as endangered by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) also have a fantastic ability to become a focal point, reaching up to 50 metres plus at maturity. Further interesting species include the Davidia involucrata, nyssa sinensis and a mature lime to name a few.

This private garden offers extremely rich rewards rarely found outside of a botanic garden.

The herbaceous sections have some interesting plantings with great potential. The four rectangular beds near the geodesic glasshouse, which houses vines and apricot, are also spectacular.

Other features include a wildlife area with stream, large pond, woodland meadow, oak arboretum, fruit trees, kitchen garden, conifer garden and herb bed. The borders, well stocked with perennial and hardy plants, provide colour throughout the year. A patio, which surrounds the property, provides three different areas to sit, and one of them has an attractive spring-fed rill.

Raised beds provide space for vegetable growing, with a wired fruit cage protecting a number of mature soft fruit bushes.

Outbuildings

At the bottom of the Garden is a Tractor/Implement Shed, measuring 9m x 6m, with water, power and light connected, accessed via a separate entrance, and with a driveway opening into a large parking area alongside it, ideal for storing a motorhome, caravan or boat, and adjacent diesel tank with pump, and large wood store

There is also a timber Summerhouse with terrace and rear shed/garden tool store with power and light, and there are several covered wood stores around the property for easy access to dry seasoned wood, one of which, just off the rear terrace, has a living sedum roof, plus a covered porch off the workshop.
