Full description

The property – which is certainly a grand affair - has only ever been occupied by two families and stands proud in its own ample garden grounds on the edge of the village. The property has retained the majority of the period features which include a veranda style entrance with an impressive hallway, matched by the first floor landing together with the stained glass windows to the front elevations which are eye-catching and enhanced by the property having a south facing aspect. Considering the property’s position together with its generous accommodation and garden grounds, it could be an ideal proposition as a Bed & Breakfast, conversion into apartments or even a children’s nursery – to mention just a few possibilities (subject to the usual consents). The accommodation is very spacious with period high ceilings and also retains the original butler’s bell system which is still in working order and deep bay windows. ‘Tristan’ benefits from an oil fired central heating system and yet has the option in the living rooms to enjoy the warmth of an open fire. There are four spacious bedrooms, two of which enjoy the benefit of bay windows and the south facing aspect, whilst to the second floor there are a further three attic rooms which provide scope for occasional bedroom use or for office/hobby usage. The grounds of the property are spacious and attractive with a semi-circular terrace to the front where beyond is garden area consisting of lawns interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. To the side and rear there are further spacious garden areas to enjoy whilst set back from the driveway, which incidentally has ample space for parking several vehicles, there is a Detached Double Garage (which could be converted to a separate Annex subject to planning consents). A brief summary of the accommodation includes: Entrance Vestibule, Entrance Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, good size Kitchen, Breakfast Room, Cloakroom with separate Wc, walk-in Pantry and Utility Room to ground floor; spacious Landing, 4 Bedrooms, Bathroom and separate Wc to the first floor whilst there are a further 3 Attic Rooms to the second Floor. This is a property not to be overlooked and worthy of inspection to fully appreciate what is on offer. 

LOCATION Penrhyndeudraeth is located just a short distance from the Porthmadog Estuary where the rivers Glaslyn and Dwyryd meet and spill into Tremadog Bay. It makes for a beautiful setting and the local scenery is enhanced by the backdrop of the impressive Moelwyn mountains just to the east of the village. The area, for obvious reasons is a tourist magnet and there is much to see and do in the locality. Penrhyndeudraeth has a wide range of amenities with some traders having been there for many years. There are regular bus services as well as a main line railway station to provide all the necessary links. A couple of points worth mentioning around the corner lies the Italianesque folly village of Portmeirion built by Clough Williams-Ellis which became famous in the 1960s for hosting the Prisoner TV series that starred Patrick McGoohan. Also, there is a privately owned toll road that skirts the coastline creating a perfect short cut for travel towards Barmouth – nice to know! The main shopping town of Porthmadog will cater for all your shopping needs together with schools and leisure facilities. Porthmadog is a colourful town and home to the Welsh Highland Railway which now stretches all the way to Caernarfon only some 14 miles distant. Just along the coastline on the Llyn Peninsula there is the historic town of Criccieth and the market town of Pwllheli which is famous for its marina, hosting many sailing regattas throughout the year.
