We Say

We love the grandeur of this impressive property! It's a spectacular example of a traditional Welsh Gentry House.

Records from the National Library of Wales indicate this property dates back to the mid 16th Century.

It is set in just over 10 acres of grounds complete with its own picturesque lake and offers a real sense of being away from it all while being close to everything! This is one of those rare gems that come on the market once in a while and really can offer it all.

The Owners Say

From the moment we drove into the grounds of this spectacular property it was a big YES from all of us. We just loved it, instantly.

It gave us the sense of seclusion and peace and quiet we longed for whilst at the same time offering us a safe, peaceful space to raise our family and also having the added benefit of giving us a revenue stream with the boutique B&B and the former Tenants Cottage apartment, once that is updated.

It really is a beautiful home which we are sure will bring a lot of joy to the next owners.

Come On In

The entrance is via the arched porch and through the large front door leading into the entrance hall, complete with its beautiful slate floor and original fireplace.

From here you can enter the drawing room on the left, which has an original fireplace, large picture windows (complete with original wooden shutters) which over look the front grounds and lake, to the right of the entrance hall is the dining room which again has the large picture windows (complete with shutters) an original fireplace and original wood paneled walls.

The main hall with its original impressive floorboards and feature staircase to the first floor, goes through to the library which opens out onto the side patio and outdoor swimming pool. You can also access the w/c & living room featuring a wood burning stove and ornamental servants bells.

On through to the impressive kitchen with an inglenook fireplace housing a large Redfyre cooking range, complete with kitchen units, butler sink, gas hob, electric oven and an original fitted wooden dresser and pantry. The door leads out to the inner hall (with original servants bells) which takes you through to the laundry room/utility, and stairs to the first floor and down to the cellar. The cellar has two rooms with slate floors and original wine bins (needs some updating).

On the first floor, accessed from the main hall, are the 3 principal bedrooms, (some en-suite) with original fireplaces and large picture windows, and a shower room. These principal bedrooms are currently being used as guest bedrooms for the B&B. Access from the main landing leads through to the inner landing with two further bedrooms, shower room, study and another bathroom.

Heading on up again to the second floor there are 4 more bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom.

Step Outside

The property is approached from a country lane and accessed via a long, sweeping graveled drive that passes through lawned grounds, lined with mature trees and plants, through another gateway and on into the front of the property with graveled ample parking space.

Steps lead you down to the front lawn that stretches down to a wooded area and on to the lake on the far right hand side of the grounds. The property sits in just over 10 acres of grounds which is a mixture of woodland and gardens with various seating areas and paths that offer beautiful walks around the estate.

There is a patio area with pergola to one side of the property which is where you will find the outdoor swimming pool encompassed by a garden which is a peaceful area to enjoy some relaxation. To the rear of the property is a timber building housing the endless swimming pool.

To the far side of the Gentry House is a side courtyard which features the well. This leads to the stone barn which has plenty of storage available on the ground floor and the 2 bed Former Tenants apartment on the first floor which is in need of renovation.

The apartment benefits with having access via slate steps up from the courtyard by foot. It also benefits from separate vehicular access via a shared drive with the neighbouring properties (formerly the original outbuildings of the estate) which keeps the Gentry House driveway separated from this cottage. This access offers 2 parking spaces for the apartment and foot access to the front door. It also benefits from a patio and garden area to the side. A wooden door leads into the hall with doors to the two bedrooms, a bathroom and a large open plan living room with kitchen area to one corner.

There are several smaller stone and timber store sheds to the far side and rear of the property, one housing the private water supply bore hole.
