Property description

The placing of Plas Trefilan on the open market provides prospective purchasers with the opportunity of acquiring one of the Aeron Valley's most important country houses. The property is a Grade II former Rectory & is set within its own extensive gardens & was once the home of the Vicars & Rectors of St Hilary's Church nearby. The property has a pleasant South facing position with views over open farmland & is easily accessible to the surrounding towns of the regions with the Cardigan Bay coast at Aberaeron within 15 minutes, likewise to the University town of Lampeter & with Aberystwyth within a 20 minutes drive.

Plas Trefilan has at much expense invested into its accommodation in recent times by the existing owners providing up-to-date yet characterful family proportioned accommodation. The accommodation can be subdivided with relative ease to incorporate the former servants quarters to the rear of the house as a separate self-contained annexe or letting unit. The property is set within its own extensive mature gardens with mature trees, shrubs & bordered by a brook, The Nant-Rhiwafallen. This stream intersects & borders the land & gives a most pleasant backdrop. The land is a particular feature of the property providing pasture meadows & incorporates recently established conservation ponds which are a haven for wildlife. The land has the added advantage of separate roadside frontages, a stable block & is capable of sustaining good stocking levels.

This is a diversely appealing country house which has many features which can only be fully appreciated on inspection. The property should be noted as a Grade II Listed property with Messrs. Cadw, The Welsh Government of Ancient Monuments governing body.
