Property description

When you approach this wonderful house you are not aware of its presence as you drive past the (14th/15th century) church, but, as you enter through the stone arch, it makes an immediate impact. This Grade II * listed building has parts that date back to the mediaeval period. It is possible that it was first built when Sir Rhys ap Thomas was modernising Carew Castle in the 16th century. The rectory was included in the grant of Royal property to the Bishopric in 1547 in exchange for Lamphey Palace. The fortified element is the central three storey tower and was put to practical use as it was garrisoned during the Civil War. A two storey wing, including the vaulted cellar was built in the early 19th century. The fine 18th century staircase saved from Lawrenny House was installed around 1850. The Church Commissioners sold the house into private ownership in 1908. This historic and substantial house offers six bedrooms, including an impressive master bedroom with en-suite. The large living room with imposing fireplace and a Minstrels gallery, the dining room and kitchen make this an ideal house to live and entertain in. There is an outdoor swimming pool in the walled garden and the grounds extend to approximately four acres.

Entering this striking property through a solid wood arched door you can appreciate the character of this Grade II * listed building. Wooden flooring and stone walls add to the feeling of house that has had a long and interesting history.
