An opportunity to buy an award-winning, five-bedroom house in Narberth is being offered by agents Fine & Country.
Redstone House has been selected to receive the LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Pembrokeshire County Council Annual Award for Building Excellence 2016 in the Best Individual New Home category. The new-build executive home has also been chosen to go forward to the South Wales regional awards in April along with the winners from ten other local authorities.
Completed in autumn last year, the high-specification property has five large bedrooms (two en suite), two reception rooms, a contemporary kitchen with a centre island and tiled floors, a family bathroom, utility room and cloakroom. Other features include four sets of French doors, engineered oak floors, a Flavel log burner on a slate hearth, a Leisure range cooker, inset LED ceiling lights and solar panels. There is also an impressive galleried landing providing access to the four bedrooms on the first floor; the fifth is on the ground floor.
Commenting on the awardwinning home, a spokesman for Fine & Country said it is ‘unusual to find an individual new-build property of this size within this area’. “Redstone House benefits from a rural outlook towards Robeston Wathen from the fore, and over agricultural fields to the rear, whilst also being a short walk into Narberth and all the amenities of a small town.
“The property has been built to a high specification, including a bespoke oak staircase supplied by local master joiners James Ratford Bridge, a fully fitted kitchen with a range of integrated appliances, two en suite shower rooms and additional family bathroom, and a wood burner set on a slate hearth in the lounge to enjoy during the cooler evenings. “The property also benefits from a downstairs bedroom with en suite, suitable for elderly relatives coming to stay or someone with mobility problems, or as an office or playroom.”
Redstone House is situated about half a mile from Narberth town centre and is approached via a gated entrance. There is parking for four cars on a paved area at the front of the house and there is a further paved area to the rear. The LABC award considers high levels of compliance with building regulations, effective working relationships with LABC surveyors, outstanding craftsmanship, technical innovation, sustainability and high performance, ability to solve technical problems with creative solutions and use of innovative products and the skills to overcome difficult site conditions.
