A large and impressive family home with a number of useable outbuildings including a stable block, set in 15 acres of grounds that include beautifully landscaped private gardens, a lake, orchard, paddocks and woodland.
The completely refurbished and expanded house is contemporary in design yet retains a warm, traditional feel. The building works were undertaken by Lionel Morgan Building Services a well-respected local builder, with a focus on quality materials and fine workmanship resulting in a meticulous finish and an extremely refined family home.
To the ground floor are four reception rooms that include a study and snug to the north side of the house, with an appealing layout that flows through glazed doors from the welcoming entrance hall into the music room and through to the spacious garden/dining area providing visual flow from one reception room to another with plenty of natural light and stunning views of the glorious gardens and grounds. The garden room extends into a gracious dining area with both benefitting from sliding glass doors opening to an expansive wrap-round, south facing sun terrace where you can look over the lake and beautifully landscaped grounds. The dining room is open-plan to a most impressive kitchen/breakfast room that is superbly equipped and bound to delight a keen chef.
Upstairs are four family/guest bedrooms, a luxury bathroom, a shower room, and two further bedrooms each with a luxury ensuite shower room and having access to the impressive upper terrace which extends the depth of the house and provides elevated views over the lake, woodland and meadow.
High quality materials have been used throughout including limestone tile floors, oak interior doors and pure wool carpeting. Fixtures and fittings are the finest available with the bath and shower rooms featuring top brands in sanitary wear, flooring and tiles. Additional features are the well placed light tunnels that provide natural light in the upper hallway and one of the shower rooms. The patios and sun terraces that surround the house are laid with coloured slate effusing a warm-toned colouration.
The grounds of the property are beautifully landscaped with the recent addition of a large spring fed lake with wildflower garden alongside adding new wildlife to watch and listen to. A stream meanders through the property which also features an orchard, paddocks, an abundance of mature trees and hedges.
Laurel Hill Farm is close to the pretty historic village of Llangwm - today a thriving community which has become a desirable commuter village to Haverfordwest where a wider range of facilities include grocery super stores, many high street names, a leisure facility, good restaurants and Withybush Hospital can be found.
