MORE FOR A MIL­LION

For ex­tra added value, look no fur­ther than this coun­try­side com­plex, says JOANNE RIDOUT

Llanelli Star - - HOT HOUSE -

IT’S al­ways sat­is­fy­ing to find a bar­gain when you’re shop­ping; some money off or a buy one, get one free of­fer, and this can some­times ap­ply to a prop­erty pur­chase too. Buy your new home and get an ex­tra house thrown in. This handy ex­tra build­ing could be­come a source of in­come, an

on­site of­fice, the ul­ti­mate party room or a way to bring the fam­ily to­gether, liv­ing on the same site but not un­der the same roof.

Of course, the higher the bud­get avail­able for a pur­chase, the more chance there is of hunt­ing down a multi-build­ing site.

For of­fers in ex­cess of £1 mil­lion this prop­erty for sale is a farm­house near Broad Oak in Car­marthen­shire. As the price sug­gests this is ar­guably a very spe­cial prop­erty propo­si­tion.

As well as the pretty de­tached stone house, the sale comes with not one ex­tra build­ing, but three. This for­mer farm com­plex gives these ex­tra homes their char­ac­ter names of The Milk­ing Par­lour, The Hayloft and The Coach House.

The mini-vil­lage for sale is called Cwm­cryth, and the cur­rent own­ers have done all the hard work for you, with all three bonus build­ings re­fur­bished into three self-cater­ing char­ac­ter cot­tages. For the new owner of the main farm­house, an es­tab­lished busi­ness as well as a new home awaits.

Ac­cord­ing to the es­tate agent sell­ing the prop­erty, the hol­i­day cot­tages are open for book­ings 11 months of the year and achieve on av­er­age a 70% oc­cu­pancy rate.

But if run­ning a “hol­i­day vil­lage” is not the life­style you are seek­ing, the es­tate agent says that the cur­rent own­ers have stated that the ex­tra build­ings also have res­i­den­tial plan­ning con­sent, although this of course should be checked by an in­de­pen­dent solic­i­tor.

Af­ter check­ing this to be the case, this prop­erty pur­chase may be ideal for a large fam­ily, with ev­ery branch get­ting to bag their own house.

Set in 47 acres of mainly pas­ture­land, the site also has an agri­cul­tural barn and a range of out­build­ings, so there’s more de­vel­op­ment to be done if the new own­ers need even more room to ex­pand the fam­ily.

And if bring­ing the fam­ily dog is im­per­a­tive, the site also has a ken­nel com­plex of­fer­ing ca­nine “homes” for up to five dogs plus five sta­bles for a fam­ily of horses, too.

The main four-bedroom house has been re­fur­bished into a stylish home, com­bin­ing clas­sic coun­try style fea­tures such as solid wood doors and floor­ing, a stone fire­place and ceil­ing beams with con­tem­po­rary ad­di­tions like the free-stand­ing bath.

The hol­i­day cot­tages all ben­e­fit from un­der­floor heat­ing, fea­ture ex­posed stone walls and log burn­ers plus some quirky char­ac­ter fea­tures such as a spi­ral stair­case and “float­ing” first­floor land­ing.

Cwm­cryth is for sale for of­fers in ex­cess of £1 mil­lion with es­tate agent Ru­ral Scene, give them a call on 01264 850700 to find out more, although there may be an epic fam­ily ar­gu­ment try­ing to de­cide who gets which house as their new home.
