A Four-Bedroom Stone House in Wales
$1.2 MILLION (875,000 POUNDS)
This restored stone farmhouse dating to the 16th or 17th century sits on about an acre of land with ocean views in the hamlet of Rhosson, a coastal community in western Pembrokeshire, Wales.
Known as Rhosson Farmhouse, the 2,479-square-foot dwelling of whitewashed stone, with a thatch and slate roof, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, and is accompanied by an array of stone outbuildings totaling an additional 1,288 square feet. Listed in the United Kingdom as a Grade II* historic building (“of more than special interest”), the two-story home was renovated in 2010 using traditional methods, and is notable for being one of few remaining homes with a round “Flemish” chimney, said Richard Hutchings, who owns the home with his wife, Carys Hutchings.
“It’s probably 16th century and the last of the Flemish chimneyed farmhouses to remain virtually intact, and it’s of considerable vernacular importance to Pembrokeshire and Wales,” he said.

“Since the pandemic, the number of buyers from England has soared,” said Daniel Thomas, managing director of Fine & Country Cardiff. “With more and more people deciding to work from home permanently, buyers are escaping to the countryside. The well-connected but still rural areas of South Wales have seen a huge amount of interest from buyers already in Wales and from those in England.”
