Waunlas is a 4 bed detached house set in approx. 16.5 acres in a very rural and peaceful location with uninterrupted views across open farmland. It is accessed from the road via a long gated track shared with the farm, and enjoys a high level of seclusion. The house has had the major renovation work carried out by the current owners and this is ready to finish off to the purchaser's preference.
The land is a mixture of pasture with river access and mature woodland. The long eastern edge of the land is bordered by the Dewi Fawr river.
The accommodation briefly comprises a Living Room which is open plan to a large Kitchen / Dining Room; a Utility Room and a Cloakroom on the ground floor; while on the first floor are a Landing, Bathroom and 4 Bedrooms (bedroom 4 currently used as a study). The property is fully double glazed and heated by 2 multi-fuel stoves downstairs. One of these has a back boiler which could be re-connected to existing pipe-work to provide hot water and heating via a radiator in the Bathroom. There is, of course, a plentiful supply of fuel for the stoves in the woodland at the property.
The property is located a mile and half outside the village of Trelech. It is about 9 miles from both St Clears and Newcastle Emlyn which have a good range of amenities and about 12 miles to the historic administrative town of Carmarthen, home to the United Counties Showground, from where there is easy access via the A48 to the M4, Swansea and Cardiff.

The property is approached over a long, hard surfaced track from the road. The first part of this track is shared with the neighbouring farm, but Waunlas has ownership from where it splits. The track leads in to the side of the house, where there is room to park a couple of vehicles, and branches off down to a further parking area below the house, where there is ample room for parking and turning a number of vehicles. This area would be an ideal place to erect a large barn or stable block if required. From here there is also access to the land.
The gardens surround the house. These have been carefully planned to make good use of the local stone to create areas of interest with space to enjoy the morning sun at the front of the house and the evening sun at the rear. The gardens are in need of some attention to fully realise their potential.
There are spring-fed water taps at the side of the house, in the car park and by the vegetable garden
To the rear of the house is a log store.
Attached to the side of the house is a WORKSHOP. This measures approximately 3.5m x 3m internally and has a door to the front and rear. Steps lead up to a mezzanine storage area above. Electricity is connected. To the side of the workshop is a former pig sty.
The land comprises three parts:
In front of the house is a large field of approximately 6 acres. The field itself is on two levels. In the upper field and adjacent to the house and car park is a spring-fed wildlife pond, a young orchard of pear, apple, cherry and plum trees and the beginnings of a raised bed vegetable garden . The rest of the upper field has been left as pasture. The land slopes down, away from the house, and then levels out at the bottom to provide further grazing in the lower field. There is a river running within the far boundary. There are mature hedge boundaries. The land is in need of some attention to bring it back to good heart.
To one side of the field is access to the ancient, deciduous woodland. This extends away from the house in a long strip of approximately 7.25 acres. It has been largely untouched in recent years and needs to be managed to realise its full potential.
To the other side of the field is access to a further wooded area. This consists mainly of conifers, but has some broad leaved trees too. (And an old slate quarry face!). There is a plentiful supply of firewood to be managed here. This area is approximately 2.75acres.
The entire property extends to a little over 16.5 acres
