Residential Development

A detached Grade II listed chapel steeped in history and architectural importance with the benefit of full planning permission and listed building consent granted on the 29/05/2020 for conversion to a four-bedroom residential dwelling. Plans and further planning documentation can be obtained from the Local Authority Planning Department with reference number W/37617. The chapel benefits from a wealth of original period features and a programme of external works have been carried out by the present owners which can be obtained from the auctioneer’s office. The vendor also informs us of the following. Alltwalis Chapel grew from the important cause at Pencader, established c. 1650, fostered by Rev. Stephen Hughes, an important apostle of early Nonconformity in Wales. A new chapel was completed in 1833 and was replaced in 1897 by an impressive neo-classical structure, designed by D Lewis Jones of Llanelli. The interiors are famous for their detailing due to D.L. Jones' background as a carpenter. The joinery throughout is of a very high quality. Much of the Georgian chapel is preserved in the Vestry. The chapel is located in the village of Alltwalis which positioned on the A485 and is approximately 7 miles from the centre of the County Town known as Carmarthen, which has an abundance of shops, schools, amenities and good access to the A48 and M4.
