Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Welcome to this beautifully presented detached house, located on The Cliff in the picturesque village of Ferryside. With incredible views over the estuary, not only does this property have a very impressive interior, boasting three reception rooms and four double bedrooms but also front and rear gardens.

The property was once the home of the famous Welsh scientist, George Parry, who remains a significant figure in Welsh Industrial History. When he retired he moved to his favourite holiday spot, Ferryside, the house he built was called Steel Villa, as it was built from the profits of his research into steel. The house was renamed Delfryn when it was sold to a Welsh family after his death and can be translated as a pretty hill , or an ideal . George Parry s grand memorial can still be found in the nearby churchyard of St Ishmael.

The property is full of charm and character and retains many original features including the servants bell box (in the kitchen, above the door) - the bell pushes are still visible in the downstairs reception rooms - look next to the fireplaces! The morning room is the current dining room. The accommodation briefly comprises; an entrance hall with access to the cellar, living room with original fireplace, sitting room with original fireplace, dining room with French doors leading out onto the garden, kitchen/diner with working Rayburn, utility room, pantry (all of which have original flagstone flooring)and WC to the ground floor. Upstairs past the amazing original stained glass window there is a shower room on the half landing and then four double bedrooms, one of which has a further room off it which can be utilised as home office or could make a wonderful dressing room or potential en-suite and there is also a family bathroom, where you can lie back and relax and enjoy the views of the sun setting over the water.

Externally the property has a fantastic front garden which is mainly laid to lawn, with original entrance gate and railings, perfect for allowing the children (or dogs) space to run and place in a safe enclosed space. To the rear of the property the garden takes on a wonderful cottage garden feel with patio seating areas, planted borders and raised beds, a great space to get lost for hours. The rear garden is terraced and the top tier, is alongside the access road which runs to the rear of the property, subject to relevant planning and permissions this space could be utilisied as off road parking, garage or garden room.

This house has so much to offer and really is an absolute gem, viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all it has to offer.
