A spacious and well-presented detached five bedroom house set in approx. 4.5 acres with a separate one bedroom annexe, American barn stabling, excellent outbuildings, lovely gardens and a rural outlook with far-reaching views
The house is believed to date from the early 20th century, perhaps with older origins, and is reputed to have been an old ale house at one time. It has been refurbished by the present owners in recent years and it provides a comfortable, well-presented family home.
There are lovely landscaped gardens and grounds, and the property is ideal for smallholding or private equestrian use. We understand that within a short hacking distance along a road, there is access into country lanes which in turn lead to forestry riding and a horse-riding trail.
The property fronts onto a main road, however the house is set well back with a large parking and turning area to the front, and the main living and working areas to the rear, enjoying a high level of seclusion.
The property is situated within the small hamlet of Hermon which has a popular fish and chip shop (Chipiteria). Cynwyl Elfed has a village shop/Post Office, Chinese takeaway, community hall and primary school. A wider range of amenities are offered by the popular town of Newcastle Emlyn to the north with a range of independent shops and stores, pubs, restaurants etc. Further north the beautiful Cardigan coast is readily accessible.
