About the Property

Standing in the heart of the semi-rural village of Sarnau is this impressive, traditional detached house with an annex on the side (which was used as the village post office many years ago and is in need of renovation). Full of character and original features, and boasting high ceilings, the property also comes with a detached garage and an old stone barn which, subject to planning permission, has the potential for conversion, a lawn garden area and ample off-road parking. Stradling the main A487 trunk road, Sarnau is a pretty village benefiting from a delightful village farm shop/delicatessen, outdoor clothing shop and an antique shop, and a bus stop, with nearby Brynhoffnant offering a newly refurbished pub/restaurant, a petrol station with Londis shop, and a primary school. The village is just over a mile away from the beautiful National Trust beach of Penbryn with its sandy beach and cafe, and only 3 miles to popular Llangrannog with its beach, cafes, pub and more. The nearby market town of Cardigan is only 10 miles away offering larger amenities etc.

The property is accessed off the main road into its own driveway. A stone wall with pillared access leads you to the front door, which opens into a welcoming entrance hall, with encaustic tiled flooring, stairs to the first floor, a door to the rear hall, and doors into the lounge and dining room. The lounge has a feature stone wall with a fireplace with a space for a wood-burning stove to sit on a slate hearth. The dining room has a wood-burning stove and a door which leads into the attached annex. The rear hall has quarry tiled floor, under-stairs storage, a door out to the rear porch, and doors to the kitchen and sitting room. The sitting room is a cosy space with a feature stone wall with a large inglenook housing a wood-burning stove and a built-in original cupboard to one side.

Details Continued:

The kitchen has a tiled floor, matching wall and base units, a 5-ring gas hob, an eye-level double electric oven, sink with a drainer, and space and plumbing for a washing machine and a dishwasher. The rear porch makes a useful utility space and boot room, with a perspex roof and a door out to the rear of the property.

On the first floor is a split landing, with distant sea views to the rear, and stairs leading on one side up to the bathroom, with a bath (with hand-held shower taps) a WC and a wash hand basin and a useful storage cupboard just outside the door. On the other side the stairs lead up to the main landing, with an airing cupboard housing the hot water tank, stairs to the second floor, and doors leading off to three double bedrooms. The rear bedroom has distant sea views and a wash hand basin, and the other two front bedrooms have en-suites, one with a bath and the other with a shower. On the second floor, there are two double bedrooms, both with access to under eves storage, windows on the pine ends and Velux windows to the rear, and a bathroom.

Possible Annex

The attached annex is accessed via a door to the front, and also via a door from the main house dining room, and a door to the rear. The front door opens into the living room, with a feature stone wall, and a door into an inner hallway. There is a narrow stair case up to the bedroom above, with storage under, and a door leading into another room, which is in need of renovation and could make a kitchen. This room is split in two and has a door leading out to the rear of the property and main house, there is water and electric points here and the far end wall backs on to the outside toiler and shower room. With a bit of reconfiguration this could be knocked through to incorporate the outside loo into the annex to create a ground floor bathroom. On the first floor, is a double bedroom.


The property is accessed off the main A487 road, onto its own tarmac driveway. There is ample parking to the side and also the rear for several vehicles including campervans/motor homes, touring caravans and cars. There is a level lawn area to the side with mature hedging on the borders and fruit trees. The gas tank is at the bottom end of the lawn. The drive carries on to the concrete-panelled detached garage, with an up-and-over door and a door to the rear on the side. The driveway then carries on down to the stone barn range. This is a very interesting building, currently used as a store shed/workshop but lends itself well, subject to the necessary planning permission etc, for conversion to a holiday let, home office, studio space etc. There is space behind this building that would make an ideal garden for it, this is currently accessed, via a couple of steps, off the main lawn. To the far end of the stone barn is a tin barn currently used as a wood store and workshop and there is space in front of the barn for parking etc.

This is a very versatile property, having been used over the years as a family home, B&B, retirement home etc, and it will make the right buyer a beautiful home.
