You can even offer your guests a refreshment in the swimming pool, with a building permit already granted for an indoor swimming pool.

Priced at £ 1,350,000, the elegant mansion is cheaper than a four-bedroom family home currently on sale in Cardiff. The detached property in the Cyncoed area of the capital also features two bathrooms, a private driveway and a front and back garden, as well as an asking price of £ 1.4million.

As you make your way to the Carmarthenshire mansion, your attention will instantly be drawn to the patterned Ruabon tiled floor before being quickly guided into the large dining / reception room.
Here you will notice the steel columns clad in solid oak, in a ‘column’ style, as well as the surprisingly wide solid oak staircase that leads to an impressive balcony-to-gallery landing. There is also a home office downstairs which benefits from a Victorian style fireplace.
You can admire the view of the Lower Towy Valley from the living room which has a Georgian-style fireplace with a marble fireplace. The nearby family room also benefits from the surrounding view, while both rooms have underfloor heating.
The living room has an oak beamed ceiling and cornice, reproducing the original features of the mansion, and has patio doors leading out onto the sun terrace where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Ruabon tiling also appears in the traditional kitchen, which includes an Aga, pantry fridge, and a range of bespoke handmade kitchen units with French oak fronts. From here you will find the side entrance hall, with a staircase leading to the guest wing, and the utility room with plenty of space for appliances.
There is even a guest lounge and dining room on the ground floor which has an original pine wood floor that has been rescued from the original mansion.
Upstairs you will be impressed by the gallery balcony landing with oak stair spindles which are an exact copy of those that existed in the mansion.
The five double bedrooms all have underfloor heating, while three have a private bathroom. The master bedroom also has a walk-in closet with built-in wardrobes, while the private bathroom has an oval bath, shower and fully tiled walls.
In the second and third double bedrooms, not only are there stunning views of the surroundings, but there are even walk-in closets in addition to the bathrooms. While the family bathroom has ceramic tiled floors, a shower tub and a sink.
There is an attic room on the second floor with vaulted ceilings which could be converted into additional living space, but as is the area is empty.
The guest wing is accessed from the side entrance hall and consists of four additional bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Nearby in the recreation wing there is a building permit for a large indoor swimming pool. It was originally designed as a private club with an indoor pool, changing rooms and gym on the ground floor and could easily be adapted.
On the outside, the property is surrounded by a landscaped park with lawn which includes a paved entrance and a large forecourt with plenty of space for several cars, in addition to the double garage.
