Look inside this “magnificent” gothic manor for sale that includes medieval features and sits in more than 17 acres of grounds. 

Ty Mawr, in Llanfrynach, is Grade II* listed and was built in the early 1800s, with remnants of 14th and 15th century homes, such as sections of a fortified medieval wall. 

The house spans more than 7,000 square feet, being an example of the ‘Strawberry Gothic’ style of architecture. 

As well as the main house, the 17.5 acres of grounds include a variety of outbuildings that have been converted into holiday lets.

There is also an attic in need of renovation, and planning consent has been obtained for an extension to the rear courtyard to create a new kitchen and dining area. 

The grounds include ornamental gardens with rotary beds, topiary and manicured lawns, the medieval castellated wall, an arboretum and orchard, fields and a copse. 

Also in the grounds is a recently refurbished barn which could be used as a workshop, and four wood stores.

James Thomas, who is marketing the property, commented: “A magnificent example of Regency Strawberry Gothic architecture, Ty Mawr is a home of incredible provenance and grandeur, renovated by the current owners to the highest standard. 

“The scale of both the house and its parkland grounds is fantastic, while the interior detailing, which is quite exceptional, is offset by a wonderful palette of jewel-like colours. 

“Brought to the market with the benefit of planning permission for a kitchen extension to the east elevation of the main house, and with a successful 5 star holiday home business, this is a rare and exciting opportunity in a part of Wales that has become especially popular in recent years.”
