Bridge Street, Kidwelly
For Sale £225,000
Bridgend House is an utter delight to discover, an abundance of character and history will astound you as you journey through the home.
Situated in the heart of the historic town of Kidwelly, you have sight of the existing town walls and Kidwelly Castle from a range of viewing points. The River Gwendraeth flows through the Town and is only a short stroll away from the home making it the perfect setting.
Thought to be a few hundred years old and originally a pub, Bridgend House is a welcoming, characterful and historic property which also provides an abundance of promise in way of development/modernisation.
As you approach the front entrance you will instantly notice the wonderful array of character presented, such as the original front door with original giant locks and low level stone porch.
We enter the property through the magnificent front door and enter the naturally bright hallway with red and black quarry tiled floor, which leads to all living areas. You will also notice that the glass door at the rear property which leads to the rear country garden gives you stunning green views as soon as you walk into the home.
Step down into the living room, which is a lovely size and with vast windows providing a naturally light room. The living room boasts characterful features such as exposed beams, built in book shelves into recesses, original large windows and a gorgeous fireplace which houses a gas wood burner effect fire sitting on a brick hearth with exposed stone with wooden beam plinth. The rear window is low level and looks out over the beautiful country garden.
Next, we visit the dining room, which again is a lovely generous space. You have original red quarry tiles on the floor, fireplace with gas wood burner effect fire, slate hearth, exposed stone back and wooden beam plinth. Beautiful room full of character and a large window to rear with a country garden outlook.
The kitchen sits off the dining room and ideally the next owner would knock the wall through to produce a beautiful, open plan large kitchen/diner. The current kitchen has a limited number of fitted kitchen units, part granite and part tiled work tops, porcelain Belfast sink and room for oven and fridge freezer. There is also a gorgeous built in cupboard which showcases the character of the property beautifully. The kitchen can also boast those lovely red quarry tiles.
The ground floor has a cloakroom which houses a WC, basin and storage area under the stairs and door to leading from the hallway directly onto the rear garden patio.
We can now ascend to the first and second floors to discover the bedroom accommodation.
The first floor houses two excellent sized double bedrooms. The first bedroom is a mammoth room with high ceilings and large low level window which delivers lovely country and side garden views. You have a large naturally light room and features such as picture rail and high ceilings.
Across the hallway is the second double bedroom which again is a lovely naturally light room thanks to the window to rear with garden views. This bedroom is a great size double and has characterful features such as exposed beams, you also have an en-suite bathroom comprising bath with shower over, wash basin and WC.
You also have a family bathroom on this floor which is a very generous size and has a viewing window to front which uniquely looks out to the old town walls and Kidwelly Castle. The bathroom provides bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, wash basin and built in cupboards.
As we ascend to the second floor you will notice half way up the dog legged stairs a low level window seat/ledge which looks over the rear garden and views over the Glan Yr AFon walk which runs alongside the River Gwendraeth. Simply fabulous views!
The second floor finds two further double bedrooms, the bedroom to the front is lovely and light with two windows to the front looking out to the old town walls and Kidwelly Castle.
The final bedroom is to the rear of the property and again has the delightful and most elevated views over the garden and the Glan Yr Afon walk which runs alongside the River Gwendraeth.
We can now make our way back to the first floor to discover additional living accommodation which is accessed via a separate external entrance located next to the front door. Here you have steps up to a fantastic home office/study space which looks out to the front of the property. The office/study is a beautiful, characterful room which is decked with red quarry tiles, slight apex ceiling and houses a red inset wood burner effect fire with a quirky original built in cupboard above.
Below the study/office you have a very handy and generous cellar which is perfect for storage.
We can now explore the external delights of Bridgend House. We enter the beautiful stone walled mature country garden via the rear door from the ground floor hallway, and step directly onto a patio area which sits under a rustic wooden porch. From here you will instantly appreciate that the garden has been lovingly cultivated to achieve a mature country garden design.
You have a patio running the entire width of the home which has space to house dining furniture, you then have two large level lawns which are separated by mature and landscaped hedging and ferns.
The bottom of the garden houses a small gravelled area.
The garden is perfectly private, peaceful and pretty, providing a countryside haven whilst also having the convenience of having Kidwelly Town on your doorstep.
Bridgend House is a hidden gem in plain sight, a rare and very special opportunity to purchase a hugely characterful property which you can make your own.
The garden also has a secret side garden which perfectly houses a shed and is laid with a mix of paving and stones. A great area to conceal storage outbuildings and maybe the more day to day tasks of a household such as washing line without detracting from the beautiful landscaped country garden delights.
