Listed former vicarage in Wales

Set in a conservation area in the Towy valley in Wales Awel Aur is an historic former vicarage dating back to 1879. It is thought that the property was a halfway stopping point for Bishops to rest when they travelled the journey from Cardiff to St Davids.

Many internal period features are retained including windows with pitch pine surrounds and linings throughout. Fireplaces throughout are also original with stone arched surrounds to the principal rooms and three distinctive brick chimneys contain working flues.

The dining room, study and snug are all well proportioned and lead off the main hallway while the kitchen lies at the far end of the house, and has a pantry which leads to the garden.
