Tyrn Vawr is a traditional converted steading which has been lovingly restored and extended, a home truly at one with its surrounding but with an ethereal, almost otherworldly feel. The seclusion, views and natural surroundings make the property even more appealing.

The approach is via a gated driveway leading to a stone chipped parking area and detached double garage. With rooms dedicated to hot house flowers and plants, double height living areas, great entertaining space and well thought out design that brings the outdoors in, this is a property with a surprise around every corner.

The entrance to the property is via the vestibule which has floor tiles and an exposed stone archway with doors leading to the inner hallway and grand hall. The grand hall creates a fantastic first impression with its imposing staircase, high ceiling and abundance of natural light. Tyrn Vawr is a house designed with great flexibility and its position and layout will suit a variety of buyers. The formal part of the property includes a magnificent drawing room which has a number of period features including wood panelling, beautifully crafted ceiling cornicing, hardwood flooring and a large fireplace with inset gas fire. Doors open up into the dining room which has skirtings, wall mounted lighting, glass shelving and centre roses. There is ample space for entertaining. The kitchen provides a range of wall and base storage units, stainless steel sink and breakfast bar with the utility room located off. There is a further sitting/sun room located to the rear of the property overlooking the rear gardens and a large conservatory with water feature positioned between the two rear wings of the house. To the other side of the grand hall you will find the library with hand crafted bookcases, shelving, desks and drawers. There is a wc/cloak, two en suite double bedrooms and a further sitting room.

A double staircase leads upstairs to a magnificent master bedroom suite which commands the entirety of the upstairs space and has views over the gardens and towards the coastline. The large master bedroom suite is effectively split into three with a corner bath and vanity units opening up into a showering area with large walk in shower and heated towel rail. The large dressing area has an abundance of storage and hanging space. Further down the hallway is the studio/home office which attracts a great deal of natural light via a large picture window on the gable end and a staircase from here leads upstairs to the attic rooms which have been cleverly utilised and adapted to provide additional office space, perfect for those running a small business from home or looking for spacious office facilities.
