A truly stunning country property set in approx. 19 acres with a beautifully refurbished farmhouse, separate cottage requiring refurbishment, excellent range of barns and outbuildings, good quality pasture paddocks and some woodland, in an extremely private setting just 1 mile from Laugharne
The farmhouse is believed to date from 1297 when, according to the Laugharne Charter it was known as Brangeweys. The oldest part of the main house, the inglenook fireplace in the dining room dates back to around 1700 when the property was owned by the Skeel family of Pembrokeshire. Although originally a working farm the land has been reduced over the years and is now ideal for private equestrian use or for general smallholding.
The separate cottage, which was formerly a barn converted around thirty years ago, requires refurbishment and is ideal for those looking for dual family accommodation or holiday let, subject to any necessary permissions.
The property lies on the Laugharne Parish boundary and forms part of the historic Laugharne walk which takes place every three years. Participants walk around the parish boundary and in doing so walk past the house and down into the wooded valley.
Laugharne is an extremely popular town on the south coast of Carmarthenshire, lying on the estuary of the River Taff. It is perhaps most famously associated with the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, who lived there from 1949 until his death in 1953. It is about five miles south of St Clears which has a range of local amenities and access onto the A40 and Carmarthen beyond.

Very helpful staff, returned calls promptly, kept us informed. Really pleased thanks!
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
We found Rural Scene very helpful and polite, they answered our queries promptly, always got back to us when they promised to. Very professional.
C..... and I could not have made a better decision than employ you to handle our sale. Quite apart from the sheer quality of the Sale Particulars, the number of viewers Rural Scene introduced, and the very high standard of service, we found the personal touch given by you and your office most reassuring....
I really wanted to write to you all at Rural Scene to thank you for the professional service you have given us over the years. Richard I would like to thank you personally for your support, I feel you went above and beyond to secure the sale, that we honestly thought would never happen, we appreciate all the effort you gave and the calmness you brought to those stressy situations. I know I can be difficult too, I have worked hard for everything in my life but I am always true to my word. It's some feat that C G had an offer for the full asking price with in a week of going on the market & completed in 2.5 months!
