The property is approached from the village road via a long driveway. This leads into a large courtyard to the front of the house which provides plenty of parking and turning space. Adjacent to the house to the rear there is around 8.5 acres of pastureland included in the asking price.


The main garden lies to the front of the house, across the courtyard. This garden is accessed via steps from the courtyard or via a gate in one corner leading from the driveway. It is laid mainly to lawn but has plenty of mature trees and rhododendrons around the edges.

Further areas of grass with mature trees extend to the side of the house. Here, there is also a heated Swimming Pool protected by a glass enclosure.

Beyond this is an enclosed orchard.

The Coach House

To the rear of the house lies the old stone stable block and coach house. This lovely old building offers lots of potential for conversion, subject to the necessary consent.


From Newcastle Emlyn town centre, cross the river and turn right at the mini-roundabout in the direction of Lampeter.

Continue along the Lampeter road (A475) for several miles until you come to the junction with the A486 at Horeb. At

the staggered crossroads, go more or less straight over staying on the A475 to Lampeter. Continue on this road for

approx.3 miles until you come to Rhydowen. Here, at the crossroads by the old pub (now an antiques shop), turn left

onto the B4459 to Pontshaen. Follow the road for a few hundred yards, you will go over two speed ramps. Shortly after

the second ramp, there are three newish bungalows on the right hand side. Immediately after the third bungalow is the

entrance to the driveway, denoted by two wrought-iron gates. Follow the drive up to the house.
