THIS four-bedroom manor house is on the market for just £40,000 – but it needs a complete renovation job.

The Grade II listed home with a sweeping driveway in 2.5 acres of land could be the bargain of the century.

But brave buyers hoping to snap up the historic property won’t be able to look around – because it is too dangerous after being left empty for a generation.

The abandoned home called Blaenblodau Hall sits in the countryside at Pencader, Carmarthenshire.

Eryl Jenkins, of John Francis estate agents, said: “We don’t want people to travel a long way expecting to be able to see everything inside, it is restricted viewing only due to its condition.

“We haven’t been able to go upstairs ourselves and advise that people enter at their own risk. It’s definitely a full renovation needed, we believe it hasn’t been lived in for over 30 years.”

The house was advertised for let in 1859 and first appeared on the ordnance survey map in 1888.

It was listed in 1992 for being a ‘largely unaltered late-Georgian style small country house’.


The home had a simple late-Georgian staircase, six panelled doors, panelled shutters and moulded cornices in the hall and principle rooms.

The drawing room also had an Adam-style ceiling with intricate plasterwork.

Blaenblodau Hall will go to auction in Llanelli, South Wales, in November.
