**** 360 Video Tour ****


A unique and very special opportunity to purchase a home literally on the 'water's edge' where the bottom of your garden meets the Haven Estuary in beautiful Pembrokeshire. With a high tide you can step off your own jetty and kayak on the Haven Waterway up to the waters of Historic Pembroke Castle in about ten minutes or set sail to enjoy the open waters of the Haven Waterway.

The current owners of Waters Edge have continually marveled not only at the impressive views that extend out across 2 miles of estuary and a mile of countryside beyond, but at the utter peace, tranquility and spectacle of nature on their very doorstep.

The magnificent vistas looking out to Milford Sound across the Haven Waterway change seasonally from the calm glass-like water magnificently reflecting a full moon, to the atmospheric moody skies and choppy waters when winter brings higher winds and stormy conditions.

Along with the scenic splendor one can revel in a plethora of birdlife that are not only enjoyable to watch but wonderful to hear…. the spectacle of Cormorants and Gannets diving for fish, the elegance of the swans that come to be hand fed, and the evocative calls of the Curlews and Oyster Catchers are only a few of the species and sights to observe from the comfort of your lounge, from the garden or the barn. Truly magical!


Monkton is a small parish on the outskirts of Pembroke which was the former county town of Pembrokeshire and is situated on the South Pembrokeshire peninsular on the estuary of the River Cleddau.

The property was built in 2001 as a small coastal bungalow amongst similar, well spaced properties that benefitted from an amazing waterside location. Waters Edge later benefitted from an architect designed extension in 2007 that doubled its size creating a spacious, bright and sunny bi-level bungalow with large principal rooms and 4/5 bedrooms. The current owners have since updated the home with recent refurbishment of bath and shower rooms, new carpeting, a super log burner in the lounge, as well as a very useful 'party barn' where you can sit and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings in a sheltered, lit and heated outdoor environment.

Other features include ceiling spot lights solid oak floors, additional roof insulation, plenty of built in storage areas and an integral garage. Estuary views from the lounge, master bedroom and front facing bedroom all of which have patio doors to the garden. Underfloor heating to the lower area of the bungalow as well as new radiators throughout.


Briefly, the accommodation consists of a glazed entrance vestibule into a very spacious hall with solid oak flooring and ceiling spotlights, which provides internal access to the attached garage, a spacious and contemporary family bathroom, 2 upper level double bedrooms and a laundry facility.

Step down to a modern, open plan kitchen and good sized dining room with vaulted ceiling featuring exposed beams, where you are immediately captured by the vista of an expansive waterway becoming visible….

French doors open to a super-spacious, luxuriously carpeted lounge with an expanse of windows and patio doors that provide unobstructed, panoramic South Westerly views of the Haven Waterway looking across to Milford Sound. A Town & County Welburn 14 kw log burner on a slate hearth sits in the far corner radiating warmth throughout whilst providing a cosy ambience on cold Pembrokeshire nights.

Presently a music room and youngsters bedroom, two interconnecting rooms provide flexibility for use - perhaps bedrooms for two youngsters, or a bedroom with playroom alongside; or as an office/study/snug with fab estuary views and garden access via a sliding patio door.

The master bedroom has access to the terrace and garden through a fully glazed sliding door that provides stunning water, distant countryside and garden views.
