Bryn Niwl is a unique estate, nestled within the Carmarthenshire countryside near the village of Meidrim, offering a wealth of possibilities and opportunity from a rare rural location. The main property, a detached six bedroom farmhouse, is steeped in history and character, with parts dating back to the 18th century, yet exudes a style and standard expected of modern day living, with solar power and fitted furniture of a high standard. The charming self-contained stable conversion has previously achieved a 4* rating by Visit Wales and offers the opportunity to run a successful holiday let, or utilise for multi-generational living. The exposed stone barn to the fore of the property was rebuilt in 2014 to a high standard, with power and lighting, and so ideal for functions, further conversion (subject to consent) or to work from home. Further outbuildings are ripe for conversion, subject to necessary planning consents, such as the original milking parlour, with other barns available that are ideal for vehicles, storage or agricultural use, such as the barn to the rear of the cottage, currently home to a barn owl!
Approached by a single track driveway, with the sight of grazing sheep in the fields welcoming you as you drive up to the property, the gravel central courtyard provides parking for several vehicles, with easy access into the barn, workshop, The Old Stable and main property. The surrounding gardens have been beautifully maintained, with lawns, feature pond, vegetable patch, a patio seating area to the immediate fore of the main cottage, and a decked seating area at the height of the valley, taking full advantage of the breathtaking views. Bryn Niwl offers pasture land measuring approximately 135 acres, the majority of which resides to the north-west of the property, and approximately 8 acres of woodland.
Bryn Niwl is a truly incredible property, offering immense opportunity and the chance to live the good life in rural Carmarthenshire!
COME ON IN
...and soak in the wealth of character within these walls, offering a balance between period charm and modern convenience and style. The warm tone of the oak units and granite worktop in the kitchen/breakfast room is balanced by the natural light which floods in through the two Velux windows of the vaulted ceiling and double glazed window to the front. The country farmhouse style has been executed to an exceptional standard, with integrated appliances including a Miele coffee machine, dishwasher, double butler sink with grooved granite drainer, a navy blue double aga with electric hob and oven, and space for an American style fridge/freezer. Slimline double doors lead to the utility area, where there are two substantial utility cupboards, one of which houses the boiler, tumble dryer, and shoe storage, and the other which houses the washing machine and a butler sink. This leads to the ground floor contemporary shower room, with WC and wash hand basin vanity unit and corner shower cubicle. The dining room lies to the rear of the property, with subtle elegant features such as the central ceiling rose and tasteful furnishings, double glazed doors leading out onto the patio, and also offers an impressive inglenook, with central log burner and two seats within the fireplace: the perfect place to curl up with a book or a hot chocolate in the winter in front of a low burning fire! Both the main lounge and the snug also offers a warm and welcoming fireplace; a Jetmaster open fireplace with chainmail curtain in the main lounge, integrated within the exposed stone wall, with the exposed timber ceiling beams, partially panelled walls and cottage doors, with a multi-fuel burner on a slate hearth and exposed beams in the snug. The sunroom to the front of the property benefits from underfloor heating and enjoys views over the immediate garden and patio areas.
The split level landing, with painted stonework and wooden staircases which are from the original priory in Carmarthen, honor the property's history and original layout, and leads firstly to the study, which could easily be used as the 6th bedroom with fitted wardrobe and corner desk, and to the first en-suite bedroom, with a built-in wardrobe, two windows with countryside views to the rear and a contemporary en-suite. This stylish space provides underfloor heating, a freestanding oval bath, walk-in shower cubicle and vanity unit with WC, bidet and his & hers bowl wash hand basins, with wall mounted mirror with integrated lighting and gloss tiled surround. The first floor offers a further two front facing double bedrooms; bedroom two offering two double glazed windows with deep sills, feature beams, and wood panelled walls, with Hammonds fitted wardrobes and airing cupboard along the side of the room, and bedroom three providing stylish Sharps fitted furniture, double glazed window to front and a decorative fireplace. The bathroom on this floor utilises the space very well, with a p shaped bath and oak vanity unit with WC and wash hand basin.
The second floor landing provides a sizeable storage cupboard which utilises the eaves space, with cottage doors leading to two bedrooms and a modern shower room with WC and wash hand basin. Bedroom Four is laid out a twin room, with reading lights mounted above each bed, and enjoys triple aspect lighting, painted stone walls and the original vaulted ceiling, with the property's construction date engraved in the wooden beam of the A-frame. Bedroom Five is an L shaped room, with dressing/study area and fitted wooden storage furniture to the side, with access into a set back cupboard, which holds connections for the water system, and offers wooden floorboards and dual aspect lighting.
... and walk out onto the decked patio laid at the height of the valley, and look out onto the breathtaking, commanding view of the surrounding countryside. With a circular timber summerhouse fitted with central table, seating and pull-down weatherproof walls, this is a glorious spot for an afternoon picnic or sunset barbecue! The land extends down the hill, currently used for grazing, then north into the woodland. The property benefits further from 320 yards of single bank fishing on the Afon Dewi Fawr, previously home to Sewin and other fish.
The private lane leading up to the property, with the sight of grazing sheep in the fields welcoming you as you drive, provides access into the immediate pasture fields, and to the gravel parking area, with space for several vehicles. This outdoor space and easy access could be useful if you are keen to utilise the 26ft workshop attached to The Old Stable, with coal bunker, log store and gardening shed.
The barn located to the side of the courtyard was rebuilt in 2014, to include power, lighting, double glazed windows and large doors to the front: an ideal space for functions, working from home, business potential or further conversion (subject to necessary consents). Attached to the barn is a quaint exposed stone pigsty, with adjacent gate leading to the vegetable patch and lawned garden, with flower and shrub borders, which has been lovingly tended and beautifully maintained. Further gardens can be found to the rear of the main cottage, beyond which the solar panels can be located, which we are informed provide an annual income of approximately £1,500, and a barn which holds the main system for the borehole water supply.
Estate gate access leads to lawned grounds with a naturally fed pond and an outbuilding ripe for conversion (subject to necessary consents), and with The Old Stables as a prime example of superbly converting one of Bryn Niwl's outbuildings, this milking parlour could provide the opportunity for another holiday let on the premises. Lane access leads to the further woodland available, consisting of oak and various native species, which measures approximately 8 acres, and also to a barn used for log storage.
Bryn Niwl's pasture land amounts to approximately 135 acres, some of which is used for grazing. Within the land there are ancient monuments from the bronze age buried, and the current owner has been informed by the Welsh Assembly that this specific area of land is now ploughable.
