A substantial six bedroom family home set in approx. 8 acres with a superb range of modern and traditional barns, high quality indoor kennels complex and two excellent paddocks, with easy access into St Clears, the A40 dual carriageway and sandy beaches.
The farmhouse has been considerably upgraded in recent years to create a lovely family home with very good-sized rooms and high ceilings throughout. The current owner developed the superb indoor kennel complex in 2015 and successfully bred cocker spaniels, golden retrievers and standard poodles (the necessary planning permission and licence would be needed should the purchaser wish to use the kennels to breed dogs or operate a boarding kennels). There is scope to further develop the property if required by converting the traditional stone barns to additional accommodation, subject to gaining the necessary permissions.
The property is only two miles from the centre of St Clears, which offers a good range of local shops and amenities, as well as access onto the A40 dual carriageway which provides a fast link to Carmarthen and the M4 motorway.
