AN IMPOSING EARLY 20TH CENTURY GENTLEMAN'S RESIDENCE PROVIDING SPACIOUS LIGHT AND AIRY ACCOMMODATION WITH EXTENSIVE AND ESTABLISHED SOUTH-FACING GROUNDS WHICH MAY HAVE DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL

LOCATION

Scarrowscant Lane is situated towards the western outskirts of Haverfordwest adjoining open space known as the Race Course. The County Town has an excellent range of amenities including shops, restaurants, banks and schools etc. Several beaches within the stunning western section of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the 22 miles or so of the beautiful navigable Milford Haven Waterway are within a few minutes drive.

DESCRIPTION

Glenover was built as a Gentleman's Residence in 1907 to an “Arts and Crafts” style. It retains many well preserved original features. Although it was utilised as a Private School for about 10 years until mid-2015, it has been in the same family ownership for a considerable time. All the principal rooms face south and overlook the mature Gardens. To the west side are a Walled Garden plus Stables and Garage which may have potential for development. Indeed, Glenover also has various commercial possibilities such as a care home, offices, hotel, restaurant or conversion into apartments.
