*** RHUDDALLT IS A 4 BEDROOMED PROPERTY ***

4 En-Suite Bedrooms - Barn Conversion: 2 En-Suite Bedrooms with a Jack 'n' Jill Sitting Room/Kitchen.

Rhuddallt is a detached, character, property of traditional stone construction and some rendered elevations under a recently newly slated roof. The property is situated in an elevated position.

The property is arguably one of the most desirable residences on the Mawddach Estuary, with the most outstanding views down the estuary as far as the eye can see. The property, part of which dates back to the 18th century, is thought to have been a "Wesleyan" school during the busy gold mining days and stands in approximately 2 acres of grounds giving direct access to the secluded estuary beaches for fishing, swimming, boating, kite flying and walking.
The present owner has fully renovated this property, with no expense spared, to provide most sumptuous accommodation taking full advantage of the stunning views from all rooms to the front and rear of the property. They have also installed a 'Biomass' heating system which benefits from non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive and photo-voltaic panels providing an income for energy supplied to the National Grid.

Rhuddallt is located on the outskirts of the popular village of Bontddu which lies about six miles from Barmouth and four miles from Dolgellau. There is a good primary school in Bontddu and secondary schools in Dolgellau and Harlech.

The ancient market town of Dolgellau sits within an area of outstanding natural beauty set in the Southern Snowdonia National Park, at the foot of the Cader Idris mountain range. Dolgellau is an excellent base for walkers and outdoor pursuits. The town boasts a nine hole golf course, a small cottage hospital, primary & secondary schools, a tertiary college as well as restaurants, pubs, library, rugby & cricket clubs.

Barmouth is situated at the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary and is famous for some of the finest scenery in the United Kingdom. Many sporting and recreational facilities are offered in the area (which is surrounded by the Snowdonia National Park) and these include walking, climbing, sea and river fishing, sailing and golf at the Royal St. David's links at Harlech. There is also a main line railway station with connections on the Cambrian Coast Railway line to Shrewsbury, Birmingham and London.

At present the property is run as a weekend retreat (see www.whitehorsesretreat.co.uk) and would lend itself to similar uses, having the main residence, together with a separate and independent stable conversion with two en-suite bedrooms together with a Jack 'n' Jill Sitting Room/Kitchen available within the grounds

Properties of this nature rarely become available and must be viewed to appreciate the high quality of workmanship shown in this renovation and the magnificent views.
