Plas-y-Coed stands in the privacy of mature gardens and grounds commanding magnificent views across the Dyfi Estuary. Located on a part wooded hillside above the beautiful coastal town of Aberdovey, the house enjoys both peace and quiet, while being close to excellent local amenities.
Aberdovey is situated within the Snowdonia National Park to the North of the Dyfi Estuary. Noted for its golden beaches, attractive harbour with sheltered anchorage for yachts and an eighteen hole championship golf course, the town also has a number of individual shops, galleries and pubs. While popular with holiday makers, it has a strong local community with year round social events and activities. The Cambrian Coast Railway has a stop at both Aberdovey and Penhelig Stations with passenger services to Tywyn, Barmouth, Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury.
Plas-y-Coed is a handsome Victorian house of great stature which stands in private gardens and grounds. The house is south facing with views across the beautiful Dyfi Estuary.
Built in the late 19th Century as a vicarage to St Peter's Church, Plas-y-Coed was designed for formal entertaining along with family and staff living. In the late 1950's it became the home of the local Medical Practicioner Dr Thomas Tibbott Davies FRCS, his wife and their six children and has remained a much loved family home.
Whilst it now requires considerable updating, Plas-y-Coed has the benefit of planning permission for either extension as a residential house or for conversion to three holiday apartments. It presently has accommodation laid out over three floors with the principal rooms enjoying sea views to the south. Period details such as high moulded ceilings and open fireplaces still remain. The house has great potential to restore to its former glory, whether as a spacious family home or to embracing holiday accommodation.
The house stands up a long tree lined driveway and sits nestled into a well sheltered south-facing hillside. To the front is a wide paved terrace for outdoor entertaining and dining and from where the views can be enjoyed above the terraced lawns. A pathway leads up into the once highly productive walled kitchen garden and behind the house pathways lead through mature woodland. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 2.28 acres.
