Tenure: Leasehold


Taking on the conversion and subsequent restoration of a former chapel/church might seem a daunting project to some however, for others who have a vision, they rise to the challenge and produce a superb structure, indeed a fabulous home whilst retaining all the essential character, architecture and appeal of such an historic building. Believed to date back to 1872, St. Catherine's is positioned on the edge of the village of Llanfrothen which sits in a fabulous location bordering the Snowdonia National Park, being surrounded by incredible countryside and mountain scenery yet perfectly placed for quick and easy access to both Penrhyndeudraeth and the larger coastal town of Porthmadog.
This striking conversion has been carefully undertaken with as much care and attention to detail as possible so as to produce a practical contemporary feel where old and new meet in perfect harmony.
Re-roofed and all internal walls lined, the transformation has provided a spacious 2 storey dwelling that would make a fabulous family home or if you have an interest in holiday letting, a cracking investment!
There are 4 bedrooms in total (if you count the ground floor snug into the equation), all with exquisite exposed beams and 'A' frames with an en-suite to the main bedroom. Excellent views can be enjoyed from the first floor which include the peak of Moel Hebog and even Snowdon. The fact that the Welsh Highland Railway passes nearby on its travels between Caernarfon and Porthmadog, is quite evocative. The entire ground level has been fitted with American Elm flooring whilst the quality kitchen has polished granite work surfaces, a Belfast sink and large range with the main entrance retaining the original gothic doors. The galleried landing has been purposely made to provide a seating/reading area - it's excellent in fact if you just want to sit there and admire the handy-work! Heating is provided by a thoroughly modern air source heat pump, all windows are double glazed, there's ample garden space, private parking and a Detached Garage. 

LOCATION The village of Llanfrothen overlooks the Vale of Glaslyn, a splendid location on the edge of Snowdonia sitting beneath the Moelwyn range of mountains and the striking Matterhorn like peak of the Cnicht. Llanfrothen and neighbouring settlements sport many interesting architectural buildings, residences and gardens built or designed by the renowned architect, Clough Williams-Ellis of Port Merion fame. The area is a perfect base for exploring the Snowdonia National Park and the stunning Cambrian coast. The village does offer a few basic amenities and a public house yet Penrhyndeudraeth is only approximately 2 miles with the coastal town of Porthmadog located approximately 5 miles further - there is no shortage of amenities or services to hand which also includes schools and leisure facilities. You may be interested to know that on the periphery of the village is an osprey sanctuary and the scenic road between Penrhyndeudraeth and Beddgelert is a real pleasure, passing through some remarkable scenery.
