Relocate to /Holiday home in West Wales anyone?

JK...hope this doesn't contravene forum rules....please remove if it does....

Hey ho, longshot, but nothing ventured....

As per a previous post we have been looking for a smallholding....and one which we have always liked the look of has just come to market, and we've been given first refusal!

So, our house has, today, gone on the market! There is movement in the place we are keen to pursue and as such, we are reflecting that in the asking price of ours.

It is built on the site of an old balcksmiths forge....which was beyond saving, so we took it down and reused the local slate to rebuild it, completed 3 years ago (looks like a traditional Pembrokeshire house but with double glazed sash windows, super warm, modern interior etc)

It's in Cilgerran 200 yards from the river (but not flood area), with Castle and Welsh wildlife Centre. 3 pubs and 3 miles from the sea (we were on TV with Rory and Paddy last Monday if anyone caught that? )

Anyhoo, large open plan living room into kitchen diner, wood burning stove, oak and flagstone flooring, three large bedrooms - master with double shower ensuite and open to rafters with balconette and velux windows.

3 toilets, bath, two showers, utility room open plan office space on landing....

Is a very well finished modern living space whilst remaining a traditional /attractive looking house (if i do say so myself!)

Has integral garage with parking in front.

We are marketing it below the valuation for a quick sale at 220,000.

Great rental (holiday let) potential too.....

If of any interest to anyone drop me a PM and will send through pics. See our Razorbill website for the amazing Ribbing and seascape locally

PS would also sell the rental property outside Cardiffif if that meant we could proceed....all ready to go /has tennants rents for 550 pcm and only looking for 120,000....very sought after location and in good condition.

If the smallholding we are after was to sell, we will sit tight, but is too good an opportunity to pass by without giving it a good go

220k!! Sounds great VFM. On the right river down this way, that property could be 700k.

Unless within 10m St Austell bronx.

No problem at all.

In fact I think you should post some pictures - everyone likes a bit of property porn!

The price reflects the fact we want to secure the other place....just numbers game tbh. That said, W wales isn't massively expensive....

The river is the Teifi a well known Salmon and Sewin river...I fish with a coracle, but this year rod and line have been having a bumper season on the Salmon front too! See the otters when out walking the dog at least once a week too

Many thanks John, will get some decent pics and post them up....think the agents particulars should be done soonish. Funny, took a lot when we were building, but seemingly not many of the house itself when done....looking through computer, most are of the dogs and then the baby when he arrived with the house as background

Polwart...cheers for the PM

PS Might even consider a RIBnet group buy

Virtual Tour

Okay, so the smallholding we wanted sold within 4 days of hitting the market....for full asking price which was 40k above the valuation (insisted on by the vendor...correctly it would appear!) Clearly some properties remain unaffected by the slump!

Hey ho, we've decided to put ours out there anyway, but don't know where we'd go if we sold it!

Heres the virtual tour we've received back http://tinyurl.com/DolwarFach

It was built under the 'Quality Pembrokeshire' initiative and reused all the slate (which I took down one at a time, sorted and cut....not a job i want to do again in a hurry) from the old forge....we also had to fly the facade across to maintain the original building line....it is essentially a detached structure....

Have just pulled the house off the market.....BUT, was really surprised!

Long story, but the second place we were pursuing got complicated....the vendor starting playing silly buggers.....not my game

Nothing else about we liked (near enough lifeboat shed ) and we have another baby due in May so we are going to sit tight for a few years and poss try to buy some land /sheds for now....

Had two cash buyers after ours, bid up well past asking price...Was amazed tbh, but had always agreed that unless we are making the move for next 20 years we would sit tight (and rental is out with all my stuff /dogs etc etc.)


Also, there suddenly seems to have been a burst of sales round here....poss just a little hicup, but interesting! Anyone want to buy the South Wales gaff? Are you allowed to raffle houses still?

Back on the market

So we've seen another place we like..... same position with us as before, rental is out so playing a risky game of sell ours to buy the other.....

In case anyone missed it first time around ....heres a virtual tour: Tour by 360virtual-tours.net

Its being marketed /going live next week, asking price 230K but open to offers (just realised we said 220K last time )

Know its a long shot, but spreading the word through all avenues

Residential market must be rising in the property micro-climate of Cilgerran
