Chocolate box Carmarthenshire cottage mixes old and new

Tuesday, February 21, 2023

A cute west Wales 'chocolate box' cottage could prove an ideal selection for a buyer looking for a tasteful mix of ancient and modern.

The compact Carmarthenshire detached two bed house, close to the M4, has benefited from sympathetic recent renovations both inside and out. 

For sale with a guide price of £99,000-plus, stone-built 86 Carmarthen Road, Cross Hands, is being sold by Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions.

Angie Davey, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: "This cute little cottage is a real heart stealer. From the outside it looks very traditional but as it has had a comprehensive modern re boot it's very up to date inside with a range of tasteful fixtures and fittings including a lovely new kitchen and upstairs bathroom.

"The cottage sits in a large plot with development potential (subject to the necessary planning consents) and is situated in Cross Hands which is a much sought after area with excellent commuter links via the M4. 

"Accommodation includes an open plan lounge/dining room with wood-burner and two bedrooms. The large rear lawned garden includes outbuildings and off road parking via the side driveway.

"There is also a larger area of garden beyond the fence that could be developed (subject to the necessary consents). The property would be  ideal for an owner occupier or perhaps as a holiday home or for investment."

Cross Hands is about 12 miles from the town of Carmarthen. Ammanford railway station is approximately four miles from the cottage.

The cottage, along with a selection of some eighty-plus other properties, is being offered, online, at the Paul Fosh Auctions sale which starts from 12 noon on Tuesday, March 7 and ends from 5pm on Thursday, March 9.
