Property description

Barn Owls is believed to date from the 1700's and was last occupied around the 1930's. Redevelopment of the property started in 2012 but was put on hold until in 2020 when permission to extend the property by adding the living room was gained and the full redevelopment was undertaken. Subsequently, Barn Owls now has three bedrooms including one with an ensuite and built-in wardrobe, another with French doors and a patio, a family bathroom, and an entrance lobby. The large light and airy open plan kitchen, dining, and living area is the heart of the house.

The whole house has a solid engineered wood floor with underfloor heating, provided by an oil combi-boiler. Water is from the new mains supply and sewage is handled via a 6 person package treatment plant. There is a borehole in the first paddock which could supply water to the house, or to the grounds or livestock perhaps.... the options are endless.

Barn Owls sits within approximately nine acres of non-certified organic land, being a mixture of wildflower and grass meadows, wild gorse, scrub, and woodland copse. It is totally private, unique, and full of investment potential for a whole variety of uses including equestrian, glamping (or both), bespoke organic horticulture, or just as a wonderful calm oasis for a family to enjoy. There is no better place for children to grow up, roaming and exploring the land, camping in the woodland copse with campfire dinners and toasted marshmallows!

Location - Barn Owls is located on a private lane in the sought after coastal hamlet of Marros, Carmarthenshire, just three miles away from the seaside resort of Amroth - the start and end of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coastal Footpath. Amroth has a variety of seasonal shops, cafes, and pubs/restaurants and the beach with its golden sand and rockpools is dog friendly and been awarded 'Blue Flag' status.
Pendine is approx 1.5 miles to the east, famous for its 7 mile long sandy beach and is historically known for its various land speed record events. Pendine offers a post office, shop and various food and drink establishments.
Further to the South are the popular tourist destinations of Tenby and Saundersfoot, boasting more golden sandy beaches and many leisure facilities.
For more everyday requirements, nearby Kilgetty offers a supermarket and train station, where larger towns such as Haverfordwest, Carmarthen and Pembroke Dock are just slightly further afield providing all other amenities.

We Say - The property renovation has resulted in a first-class finish and the sunlight from all aspects filters through each room. The use of natural materials enhances the property further, helping it blend in with the natural surroundings. Inside the property, the engineered wood flooring and underfloor heating, makes it warm underfoot and the bi-fold doors of the open plan living area, frame the view to perfection. There are so many possibilities with this property and surrounding land; it could be the perfect lifestyle change for those seeking a bit of the good life!

The Owner Says - The current vendors have affectionately named the property the 'half-hour house', being half an hour from Tenby, Carmarthen, Narberth and Pembroke Dock in all directions.

Come On In - Barn Owls was originally a 17th century detached stone barn located on a private road in the coastal hamlet of Marros. The property has recently undergone a complete renovation with spectacular results, evident as soon as you step inside. The layout of the property has the open plan living/kitchen/dining as the heart of the home with contemporary bi-fold doors allowing you to extend your living space outside. The bathroom and three bedrooms, one of which has a dressing area and en-suite shower room. completes this beautiful cottage. The whole house has a solid engineered wood floor with underfloor heating, provided by an oil combi-boiler. Water is from the new mains supply and sewage is handled via a 6 person package treatment plant. There is a borehole in the first paddock which could supply water to the house, or to the grounds or for livestock perhaps.... the options are endless.

Step Outside - Stepping outside the cottage is like walking straight into the view. Meadows abundant with wildlife lay before you and the tranquil location is truly a haven to treasure.
The vendor's view is that Barn Owls would potentially be the most appealing property on the Marros Estate, owing to its idyllic, discreet location with sunrises to the front and sunsets to the rear. The immediate grounds measure approximately 0.5 acres with a driveway to the front providing off-road parking for several vehicles plus a turning area. Landscaped gardens to the front and rear, backing onto just under 9 acres of organic meadows beyond.
