8 bedroom character property for saleMinera
A substantial detached period house with generous lawned gardens and vehicular parking which has been considerably extended and has the benefit of Local Authority planning for use as an Outdoor Activity Centre. Three / Four Reception Rooms, Eight Bedrooms, Three Bathrooms.
Pen-Y-Nant Cottage is a distinctive and substantial house located within an attractive rural area on the fringe of the former lead mining village of Minera. A popular walking destination, the house provides a perfect base for exploring the surrounding hills and local wildlife. Whilst the benefits of this pleasant rural position are self evident, the house is within convenient reach of many excellent commercial centres including Liverpool, Manchester, the historic City of Chester and the property is within easy reach of Snowdonia National Park and the North Wales Coast. Moreover, Wrexham Town Centre is approximately 5 miles away, many essential services are on hand including schools, post office, hospital and supermarkets.
Built to an appealing design in 1918 with pleasant Sandstone detailing, the house has been considerably extended with works completed in both 1981 and 1984. Today the house provides extensive accommodation which is particularly versatile. Pen-Y-Nant Cottage has the benefit of Local Authority Planning Consent for use as an Outdoor Activity Centre and lends itself to a variety of uses, with Bed and Breakfast, Holiday Lettings a consideration (subject to planning). That said, the property can operate as two independent wings as both the original half and extended portion are self contained. This arrangement lends itself well to the occupation of a dependant relative etc.
The house is double glazed throughout and has the benefit of a comprehensive Oil fired central heating system. The ground floor extension benefits from a mains fire/smoke alarm facility.
Viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the size and versatility of the naturally light accommodation and it is worth noting that the property comes to the market for the first time in 30 years.

Further parking is provided to the side of the house, this hardstanding in made up of paving and loose stone. To the front there is an area of shaped lawn with established hedging and trees. Worthy of particular mention is the large and enclosed lawned side garden.
