A LIVESTOCK FARM EXTENDING TO 151 ACRES OR THEREABOUTS IN TOTAL WITH POTENTIAL FOR DAIRY USE, OCCUPYING A CONVENIENT SETTING WITHIN A HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE BELT OF LAND IN THE CARMARTHENSHIRE COUNTRYSIDE AND INCLUDING A RESIDENCE THAT REQUIRES SOME FURTHER IMPROVEMENT TOGETHER WITH A RANGE OF BUILDINGS
SITUATION: Llechclawdd occupies a rural setting in the West Carmarthenshire countryside, some 6 miles or so north of the small town of Whitland and a similar distance from the town of St Clears which lies on the A40 dual carriageway. Both Whitland and St Clears offer a reasonable range of local services with the county town of Carmarthen which, as the principal administrative centre of the area benefits from a wide range of facilities and amenities, also being within easy reach. The farm is located within a belt of highly productive well regarded early land that is suitable for grazing and cropping with the majority of land use within the locality being either dairy or livestock farms.
DIRECTIONS: The property is located in postcode SA33 4DF. A location plan is attached.
DESCRIPTION: Historically Llechclawdd was a dairy farm but milking on the holding ceased some 15-18 years ago and since that time the farm has been run as a livestock unit. The farmstead occupies a central position on the holding and is approached off the adopted highway over a farm lane of compacted stone and this is subject to a full Right of Way in favour of a neighbouring property. The farmhouse is separated from the buildings by the lane. The main block of land for the holding is situated around the farmstead with a small area separated from the main holding by a minor road. The farm extends in total to some 151 acres or thereabouts. The farmhouse comprises a detached traditionally constructed residence of rendered solid stone and brick walls under a pitched slate roof and benefits from uPVC double glazing and doors but does now require some further upgrading to realise its potential. The accommodation briefly comprises:
MAIN ENTRANCE HALL: Leading to an inner hallway, with stairs rising to the first floor.
LOUNGE: (5.12m x 4.2m (16'9" x 13'9")) with tiled fireplace and quarry tiled floor
SITTING ROOM: (4.25m x 4.25m (13'11" x 13'11")) With tiled fireplace
REAR ENTRANCE HALL: With door to the rear
KITCHEN: (5.11m x 2.82m (16'9" x 9'3")) With fitted cupboards and a sink unit

EXTERNALLY: There are various domestic buildings close to the residence suitable for general storage, garage etc.
THE FARM BUILDINGS: These are principally situated opposite the farmhouse and divided from it by the shared access.
The buildings are typical of a progressive farmstead development and comprise a range of modern and traditional buildings that include Former Cow Shed of brick walls under a slate roof. This building maybe suitable for a residential conversion, subject to the necessary consents being obtained. Corrugated iron Hay Shed used as a workshop. Nissen Hut used for implement storage. 5 bay steel framed Shed - 23m x 11m approx. with infill block walls and corrugated iron cladding used as a silage clamp 5 bay steel framed Shed-23m x 6.5m with Lean-tos - 23m x 6.4m and 23m x 5.5m used as loose housing. Former milking parlour-11.2m x 5.3m of block walls under a corrugated asbestos roof. Slurry Pit Various stone buildings, some of which may have conversion potential, subject to any necessary planning consents being obtained
THE LAND: The land comprises a useful block of level or gently sloping pasture land in the main that is well fenced and gated with the benefit of access to a suitable mains or natural water supply. The land is all conveniently located to the farmstead being accessed via a series of internal gates either off the lane or within the field boundaries with the majority being capable of being grazed or cropped. The land on the opposite side of the road has principally been used as the cropping land. We would estimate that approximately 120 acres is clean with the remainder forming tracks and various woodland. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR A LAND PLAN
SERVICES: We understand the residence has the benefit of private water and drainage together with mains electricity. TENURE: We understand the property is Freehold of tenure and that vacant possession would be available upon completion. The property is approached over an unmade lane off the adopted highway. The lane appears to be in the ownership of Llechclawdd but is subject to a full vehicular right of way to provide access to a neighbouring property. There would also appear to be a public footpath along the farm lane. LOCAL AUTHORITY: Carmarthenshire County Council, County Hall, Castle Hill, Carmarthen SA31 1JP Tel: 01267 234567
GENERAL REMARKS: Llechclawdd is a traditional west Carmarthenshire farm that now requires some inward investment into the residential element of the property and the farm buildings in order to realise its full potential but nevertheless includes a very productive block of land that has been well farmed and is suitable for grazing or cropping. The farm occupies a very convenient setting within the west Carmarthenshire countryside and is offered for sale at a realistic asking price with viewing highly recommended.
