Situated in an elevated, south facing, position high above the banks of the Western Cleddau river, Boulston Manor is a remarkable property packed with character and charm. As you approach the Manor along peaceful tree lined roads and driveways, you feel the sense of calm and privacy which inspired the building of this stunning residence at the end of the eighteenth century. Boulston Manor was constructed near to the original 15th century Old Boulston Manor which was owned by the prestigious Wogan family, who also constructed the nearby Picton Castle. Below the main house on the banks of the river you can also find the ruins of Boulston Church which served as the private mausoleum of the Wogan family. Boulston Manor was designed to take in the sweeping views of the river from its sunny, elevated, position and it stands as an impressive sentinel over this stretch of the peaceful waterway.
The manor house offers hugely flexible accommodation over four floors and provides numerous reception rooms and bedrooms for its owners. The expansive cellars provide exceptional dry storage and houses the building’s large log fired boiler. The ground floor houses all the principal reception rooms in the property, including the grand drawing room which looks directly out over the parkland in front of the property. To the rear of the ground floor the two wings of the property add utility space and a self-contained one bedroom flat overlooking the entrance drive. On the first floor you find the principal bedrooms, including the sumptuous master which has a large ensuite bathroom, dressing room, and doors out to a balcony which has some of the finest views over the parkland and river. In addition to the master bedroom you find five additional bedrooms on this level, all with en suites. The second floor of the property comprises includes three further bedrooms and further storage rooms. Should the top floor bedrooms be needed that would bring the property up to ten bedrooms, if required.
In addition to the main Boulston Manor, the sale also includes Boulston Manor Cottage which is a charming structure positioned just behind the manor. Offering three bedrooms and three reception areas, this self-contained detached cottage is currently residentially let and enjoys its own privacy and access from the main property.
Across the rear courtyard from Manor Cottage you find the Old School House. A fascinating structure which would have once served as the schoolhouse for the children of the parish, it now provides a wonderful conversion opportunity for any buyer. Planning permission is in place to convert the structure into a two bedroom holiday let, which could be an added feature and source of income.
As well as the gardens and a large barn that are found close to Boulston Manor, the sale also includes approximately twenty seven acres of parkland which stretch down to the banks of the river. This grassland is a stunning outlook which offers peaceful walking and excellent grazing. Alongside the parkland is around fifeen acres of woodland which also includes two large ponds. The serenity found in all parts of this glorious acreage is truly impressive and provides a wonderful feature to the estate.
The tranquillity and privacy of Boulston Manor hides that fact that the Manor is a short 3 mile drive to the county town of Haverfordwest. Offering an excellent range of amenities, the town is well-connected to the A40/M4 road network, putting the major cities of South Wales within easy reach and the Severn Bridge beyond.
