An impressive four bedroom detached farmhouse offering very highly appointed and elegant living accommodation together with a large integral one bedroom self-contained apartment, set within extensive landscaped grounds and pasture land extending to 8.69 acres. Located in a secluded rural environment some 1.5 miles from Mold, and within easy access of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester. Standing at the head of a long private driveway in the heart of rolling countryside and with uninterrupted views across the Gwysaney Estate, the Wirral and Cheshire Plain; this period stone built farmhouse has been carefully restored and refurbished to provide an outstanding and adaptable family home.

Tyddyn Ucha Farm was bought by the current owners in 1984 in a dilapidated condition. A comprehensive scheme of renovation has provided a very spacious and adaptable family home which has been regularly updated. The gardens and grounds have also been landscaped and developed at great expense which after nearly 30 years have matured to provide a sheltered and secluded environment providing interest and colour throughout the seasons.
Located in North East Wales some 12 miles from Chester, the Mold area is a delightful rural environment at the gateway to the North Wales coast and Snowdonia, yet within easy reach of the main centres throughout the north west. It stands in a secluded position amidst rolling countryside about 0.75 mile from the village of Gwernymynydd and 1.5 miles from the county town of Mold. The nearby centre provides an extensive range of facilities to include two weekly street markets, popular primary and secondary schools and the highly regarded Theatr Clywd arts and theatre complex. There are excellent road links towards Chester, Liverpool and Manchester and with popular private schools at King's and Queen's in Chester.
