Penlan is an extremely pretty traditional stone cottage situated on the edge of the popular village of Llanfilo. The property was originally 2 farm workers cottages but was adapted into a single dwelling by the present owner. Although a little dated and in need of some upgrading the property offers tremendous potential to form a fine village property which are indeed very rare these days; great architectural facade, extremely eye catching and inside the property still retaining many original features including a traditional fireplace with bread oven and exposed beams.
The property is approached via a right of way over the adjoining property's front drive which extends to a private parking area and beyond the cottage a lovely generous garden backing onto farmland, whilst to the front an outlook over the most attractive village church.LOCATION
