For most people a bit of peace and quiet and a private garden to enjoy everything nature has to offer is the dream.
But what if your house was sat on over 60 acres of ground, surrounded by sprawling views of the countryside with its own private lake? And not only that but you didn't have to trade being close to amenities to have it?
Well, just 10 minutes outside the town of Carmarthen you'll find just that. A grand property sitting elegantly in total tranquillity, surrounded by glorious greenery, with blue skies and stunning trees making themselves known through nearly every window.
And if you want to see another grand property of a totally different style then check out this Hollywood Hills-style dream home in the valleys here.
Brilliant pink skies and mesmerising sunsets at the Carmarthen rural property are nature's evening sign-off amongst the sounds of wildlife wafting in through the windows.
While the main house is framed by five acres of lawned gardens, with several flower beds and a large lake, there's also lush pasture and woodland surrounding the property.
Despite its grandeur, the house is actually pretty modern, having been completed to a stunning standard just 13 years ago.
The estate agent selling the property describes it as "offering the opulence and grandeur normally reserved for antiquated country estates, but with all the comforts and conveniences of a state-of-the-art new build".
In addition to its stunning setting and eight bedrooms, the property boasts seven bathrooms and five receptions.
And if the grand entrance and double height reception hall doesn't impress hard-to-please guests, then the secret staircase leading to their room with a statement bathroom and games room, currently housing a pool table, certainly will.
It's pretty hard to choose, but the kitchen definitely looks like the heart and soul of the house with lots of light flooding in from the French doors and feature windows which open up onto a rear patio with plenty of space for a dining table in front of a cosy wood burning stove.

The kitchen diner comes complete with a huge island and Lacanche Cote d'Or professional double range oven so you'll be ready to entertain from the get go. Can you imagine the views from the island when the land is topped with a coating of snow or covered in autumn leaves?
And that's not all, as there's also "a double garage, stone barn for garden machinery, and a self-contained two bedroom guest barn" so you can share the incredible views with family and friends.
Finished to a similarly high standard as the main house, the luxurious guest house offers two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and double height living space and separate kitchen.

And while it's easy to feel like the house is completely unplugged from the rest of the world, the property is reportedly just 10 minutes from the A48 and M4 corridor and around half an hour to the city of Swansea.
The Country Living Group describe it as a "fascinating proposition" and a "truly remarkable country estate."
The property is marked at offers over £1,650,000, call the estate agent on 01437 616101 to find out more.
