Couple of handsome Welsh seaside-ish properties for you today, neither are exactly wrecks but both may need rather more than a painting party.
This Welsh farmhouse with land and outbuildings is up for auction in July with a guide price of £180k-£190k.
Four bedrooms, some original features and a fair few later additions that you'll want to replace (that conservatory, for instance). But lots of space and potential.
It's just outside the Ceredigion coastal village of Llangrannog, about 10 miles from Aberaeron and the same again from Cardigan.
Downstairs are reception, wet room, lounge, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/diner, conservatory and storeroom. Three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and a further bedroom on the second floor.
Outside is stunning - one-and-a-half acres of paddock and gardens, plus hardstanding for cars and several stone or block-built outbuildings and stables. Definitely has 'Good Life' potential!
On the market through John Francis with a guide price of £180k. Auction date July 5th unless sold. More information and pictures here and here.
Also up for sale in that same auction is this amazing eco-house. Built in 1972 by architect Christopher Day, it's featured in several books and articles.
The original turf roof was replaced by sedum in 2003, and the house has spring-fed water and solar power.
The house has a hall, sitting room, living/dining room, kitchen and three/four bedrooms and sits in a quarter of an acre of land.
The house is at Ty Cwrdd Bach, in the hills above Pontfaen (SA65 9SJ), about 10 miles from Fishguard and the Pembrokeshire coast.
Also on the market through John Francis, with a guide price of £160-£170k. More information and pictures here.
