DESCRIPTION Garden Cottage is a charming property set in just over 2 acres of beautiful grounds, situated amongst a cluster of properties forming part of the original Edwinsford Estate. Garden Cottage as the name suggests is thought to have been the original gardener's cottage for the estate, set alongside the stunning Grade II Listed walled garden which was the focal point of the main house for many years. The cottage itself is full of charm having been upgraded in recent years to include the installation of beautiful hand crafted internal oak doors, complimented by oak skirting boards and window sills. It has also recently benefited from a brand new fitted kitchen with Quartz worktop but also retains many original features including natural stonework and traditional inglenook fireplace.

. There is no doubt that this property would suit a keen gardener or those that are looking for 'The Good Life'. Not only does the property enjoy substantial grounds within a walled garden, including a kitchen garden, extensive lawns, workshop and potting shed, it also enjoys a garden/meadow and vista extending down to the River Cothi along which there is right to fish for those with an interest in fishing.

LOCATION Located on the former Edwinsford Estate; a cluster of homes around the main Manor House. The site lies just off the B4337 and approximately 2 miles north of the small village of Talley which has its own primary school. Most shopping facilities can be found in Llandeilo which is approximately 15 minutes or alternatively Lampeter in a northerly direction which is approximately 25 minutes away.

Garden Cottage is a delightful home, situated amongst other original estate houses and still offering privacy. The gardens have been the pride and joy of the present owners who have worked with the wonderful and natural historic surrounding to create an idyllic outside living space.

WALK INSIDE A solid front door provides formal access into a beautiful cosy sitting room, which is the centre of the house, having flagstone flooring, substantial inglenook fireplace with recessed former bread oven and fitted wood burning stove; hand crafted oak doors and skirting boards and stairs leading to the first floor. A door leads off to the kitchen, which was replaced within the last 12 months, having a beautiful range of fitted units with Quartz worktops, inset Belfast sink, fitted electric hob and an oil fired Rayburn cooking range. A further oak door leads off to a w.c. closet with w.c and wash basin and a second door leads to the rear hallway which is open to a lovely garden room, with glazing along one wall, flagstone flooring, exposed stonework and large walk-in storage cupboard.

First Floor The spacious landing with lovely oak/ timber work provides access to each of the 3 double bedrooms; all having built-in wardrobes and beautiful hand crafted doors. The luxury bathroom suite provides a touch of class with a lovely roll-top bath, w.c., pedestal wash hand basin, shower cubicle and timber wall panelling.

WALK OUTSIDE Garden Cottage, as the name suggests has a strong bias towards the beautiful enclosed walled garden of the original Edwinsford Estate. It is an ideal property for keen gardeners or those simply seeking space in the countryside to live 'The Good Life'. Immediately to the rear of the house is a secret garden, mainly enclosed by an impressive stone wall, part of the Grade II Listed garden walls of the Edwinsford Estate. It is full of established shrubs and specimen trees creating the perfect getaway for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. An arched gateway leads rearwards into the outer walled garden where there is a young lime tree lined gravelled avenue leading towards a superb Workshop/Garage (measuring 14m x 6m), seating area, duck/chicken house and along one elevation an area currently used as a kennels. Alongside is a traditional potting shed and a fantastic kitchen garden, full of fruit and beautiful flowers - a gardener's delight, with large polytunnel and a small glass greenhouse. We have been informed by the vendors there is also planning permission for a Victorian style wooden monopitch greenhouse on the southern elevation of the workshop barn. The main gardens which extend to well over an acre are lawned with a series of paths and mature herbaceous borders, some running along the listed garden walls but all providing superb privacy in this lovely enclosed area. To the front of the house is a further large garden area leading down to the banks of the River Cothi from where there are stunning views along the Cothi valley and a small length along which the owner has a right to fish, for those who have a keen interest in angling.

NOTES The property is accessed via a shared driveway, part of which intersects the front lawned garden with the main house.

Fishermen have the right to cross along the banks of the River Cothi.
