Serenely located in 45 acres of stunning Carmarthenshire countryside, a stately Georgian house and two listed cottages enjoy an elevated position surrounded by landscaped gardens, large paddocks, a one acre stocked pond, a walled garden with tennis court, large swimming pool, summer house, 2 sand schools and 3 stables, plus additional outbuildings - all set in beautiful gardens, managed woodland, meadows and pastures.
An interesting historical background reveals the Hall was built by the Abadam family who were once the owners of the 'Middleton Hall Estate' purchased from Sir William Paxton in 1824. Formerly known as Clearbrook Cottage - so noted on an engraved stone dated 1853 which is now set in a stone wall of the patio. King Charles II later provided an Abadam Crest proudly positioned above the front door denoting the hall lays claim to an important heritage. During the early 1870's the house was occupied by Colonel Morse who enlarged the cottage creating the substantially larger property re-named 'Clearbrook Mansion'.
Over the years the hall has been fully refurbished to include new plumbing, wiring, windows and doors. More recently the present owners who purchased the property in 2003, have adapted the interior to suit more contemporary life styles adding modern conveniences, yet retaining the classic Georgian styling and period features. The layout features a bespoke, well equipped kitchen, spacious utility room and comfortable family room, as well as luxury bath and shower rooms. A health benefitting ventilation and heat recovery system has been installed as well as underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, fuelled by an economical Eco-friendly Biomass boiler. Solar panels and PV tubes generate electricity contributing to requirements for the hall, the two cottages and the heated swimming pool.
The two listed stone cottages – Clearbrook Lodge and Meadow Cottage, were also completely rebuilt and refurbished in 1990 by the former owner. They sit quietly apart from the hall with their own vehicular access, parking areas and enclosed patio gardens. Both cottages are presently occupied by long term tenants.
