Rarely does an opportunity arise to purchase two properties and 19 acres within beautiful countryside that offers stunning views across the Glyn Valley and beyond.
Bronydd is steeped in history having been a former slate quarry known as "The Wynn Quarry" until 1928 and more recently as a museum and tourist attraction demonstrating the underground workings of the quarry with its caves and trams dating back to the 18th century.

A detached stone and slate property known as "Office Cottage" provides well presented character accommodation with lovely Glyn Valley views and oak timbers, comprises entrance hall, dining room with open fire, kitchen, sitting room, garden room, cloakroom with WC, two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

The main house is a substantial seven bedroom country property that commands magnificent views but has unfortunately suffered significant structural defects and subject to necessary planning consents being obtained, be demolished and re-built.

Bronydd is accessed along its sweeping tree lined driveway rising past a large open area which includes a modern 24 metre open fronted barn and continues to the two properties and caves. The land includes 12.5 acres of quarry, footpaths, garden and natural landscape together with 6.9 acres of woodland which is mainly oak.
Inspection is strongly recommended to appreciate the setting.
