Detached four-bed house, 10 acres of organic land, timber chalet, range of outbuildings, woodland surrounds, river boundary, accessibility and privacy makes this unique smallholding ideal for self-sufficient living.
Ddolwen presents many options for diversification. The original stone farmhouse has been extended to provide a comfortable family home and benefits from double glazing and lpg fired central heating in addition to traditional log burners.
There are three bedrooms with a box room and family bathroom on the first floor with a further bedroom, living room, sitting room, kitchen / breakfast room, utility area, shower room and conservatory on the ground floor with scope to create a separate self-contained annexe.
The timber chalet can be used for a variety of purposes including as an office, a studio and accommodation. The stables and the nissan hut lend to being converted.
The level pasture land currently used for equestrian purposes have been organically maintained for over eighteen years and would be ideal for growing organic produce.
The property is approx. 9 miles from Carmarthen, the oldest country town in Wales, which has a hospital and all the amenities. Two primary schools are nearby. Located just outside the village of Cwmduad with a five-minute walk to the local pub, the chapel and the community centre, Ddolwen is on the main bus route from Carmarthen to the beautiful Cardigan Bay coastline with market town of Newcastle Emlyn en-route.

There are two gated driveways that lead from the main road to a large parking area near the house. A pedestrian access from the road leads to the timber chalet and there is a car parking space on the adjacent minor road, Heol y Bwt giving it independence from the main house.
There are large gardens to the front and the side of the house which are laid mainly to grass with a greenhouse and flower borders.
Across from the house are the outbuildings with a nissan hut with double doors to one end. Behind this stands a block of two stables and next to this a long block and corrugated open barn. The nissan hut and stables would lend themselves to conversion if desired.
The large timber chalet with water and sewage connected is on the side of the house in its own plot of land. This has two large rooms, a cloakroom (currently with WC and wash hand basin and space for a shower) and a further small room which could make a suitable kitchen area. The chalet would be ideal as an office, as a studio, or for overspill accommodation. There is a pedestrian access from the main road to the chalet with a car parking space on the minor road.
There are three level meadows of over 9 acres on the same side of the river (Afon Duad) as the house. These are currently grazed by horses. One field has a small plantation of trees which gives it added privacy.
