The Henllys Manor House which went on sale for £750,000 is said to be the site of an undiscovered buried treasure. The manor dating back to the 16th century was occupied by Colonel David Williams of the East India Company between 1788 and 1815.
As the story goes, his wife is said to have buried her jewels within the grounds of the estate, which, to this day, have never been found.
The six-bedroom country home also has the draw of being located within a few short miles of Prince Charles’ Llwynywermod Estate in West Wales.
The Grade-II listed property was previously listed in 2016, with its owner saying the proximity to the royal estate had been a big influence.
Elizabeth McGill said: “It’s amazing what a famous neighbour can do to the local property market.
“It has been interesting to see the ‘royal’ effect.”
Treasure hunters should be aware that the historic manor house and grounds stretch for around 3.4 acres, making the search for the jewels much more difficult.
The house itself has a Georgian style from circa 1825 to 1830 and includes a paddock together with a detached cottage which is currently used as a holiday let.
The manor house also comes with fishing rights over a stretch of the River Tywi.
