Ideal for those who want to make their mark from the off, this brand new eco-friendly home offers you the chance to create your own dream space
In the sleepy coastal hills where Pembrokeshire meets Ceredigion sits this remarkable new build home, perched high above the village of St Dogmaels.
The Lookout has spectacular views over the River Teifi and surrounding countryside, stretching out to the distant coastline.
But there’s so much more to this property than wonderful vistas. For starters, there are actually two houses on the one plot – as well as the main house there’s a detached converted barn.
Horse lovers will adore it here, as there are four paddocks and a sand school area ready-made for the animals, while the nearest beach is just 15 minutes away on horseback.
And for those who like their sanctuary to be eco-friendly, the house has a ‘living roof’, which provides a striking appearance, reduces surface run-off and creates a microclimate for wildlife.
Glass walls in the main house ensure plenty of light streams into the property. And a key feature for those who want the freedom to make their own design choices is that the kitchen has yet to be put in and some of the floors are ready to be laid in the style of the new owner’s choosing.
There are great views from the dining room (which has access to a patio), the sitting room, and from a large room in the basement, which could be used as anything from a study, an office, a bedroom or even a home cinema (there are connections for a wall mounted TV screen on one of the walls, just in case).
Meanwhile, the additional three-bedroom Lookout Barn is a luxurious home in its own right, with Velux roof windows, a modern open-plan design, and the same fine outlook as the main house. The lounge has an exposed stone wall, and the main bedroom allows you to watch the stars from the comfort of your bed.
If you like the idea of views, land, and the chance to have your say on the style of an eco-friendly new build, then The Lookout might be just the place you’ve been... looking out for.
