Garthwen was built in 1914 for a Sea Captain, John Evans from Cardigan (under the supervision of an Architect David R. Thomas of Morriston) with exacting and precise specification to include quality materials to include masonry from the Forest of Dean, Moulmein Teak and Spanish Mahogany, Oak block-flooring, etc. Built in a classical Edwardian-style Garthwen is appearing on the open market for the first time since 1934 and the offering of Garthwen for sale is a unique opportunity for the discerning purchaser to acquire one of the finest houses available anywhere in the Teify Valley.
