Cute Carmarthenshire cottage sells at auction
Thursday, March 16, 2023
A cute west Wales cottage attracted buyers at auction looking for a tasteful mix of ancient and modern.
The compact Carmarthenshire detached two bed house, close to the M4, which has benefited from sympathetic recent renovations both inside and out sold for £109,000.
Listed with a guide price of £99,000-plus, stone-built 86 Carmarthen Road, Cross Hands, was sold online by Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions.
Angie Davey, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: "This cute little cottage is a real heart stealer. We had four bidders competing for this eye catching property.
"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 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.
