This “impressive” character farmhouse for sale is thought to have origins in the 1300s and includes riverside woodlands. 

Capel Dewi Uchaf, in Carmarthen, is Grade II listed and has possible 12th century origins and earliest records dating back to the 1600s.

The detailing of the property suggests that it was for gentry rather than farmers, with the first recorded owner being notary public Owen Rees, who died in 1698. 

Period features of the house include sash windows, dogleg stairs, open fireplaces, and ceiling plasterwork. 

Entering the property, a large wooden porch leads into the main hallway, with Welsh tile floors and period doors.

The living room features a wood-burning stove in a fireplace, as well as garden views, while the sitting room includes quarry tile flooring, a “huge” exposed stone hearth, and original wooden beams. 

In the centre of the home is the dining room, which was the original kitchen and has a wood-burner in place of the former stove.

The agent commented: “Potentially dating back to the 1300s, and appearing on maps of the mid 1700s, this impressive Grade II listed farmhouse is a property packed with character and charm. 

“In addition to the expansive internal accommodation, the property also offers a huge amount of land to enjoy. 

“The land runs down to the banks of the picturesque river Towy which flows along the northern boundary of the property.”
