Tenure: Freehold

Balkan Hill House is an impressive Victorian house standing in an elevated position with glorious sea, estuary and far reaching coastal views. The house is believed to have been built as a sea captains residence with the lawn shaped to reflect the bow of a ship. Today, Balkan Hill House is a much loved and comfortable family home with the gravitas for larger scale entertaining.

The elegant accommodation retains many period features including high moulded ceilings, deep sash windows, original fireplaces and stunning slate floors which extend through much of the ground floor. The front door opens to the mid floor with its welcoming hallway, elegant drawing and billiard rooms, both with beautiful sea views, and a cosy study opposite. A staircase leads to the second floor landing and down to the ground floor with its inner hall. The well fitted traditional style kitchen/breakfast room has wide granite worktops, a breakfast island and sitting area around a fireplace housing a gas stove.

The neighbouring dining room has a polished oak floor, an ornamental fireplace with pretty turquoise tiled slips and French doors to the west facing terrace.

A connecting door opens to the light and attractive garden room with French doors opening to the south facing terrace sheltered by a retractable canopy.

Two bedrooms with en suite facilities are situated on the half landings, while the principal bedrooms lead off the second floor landing with its extensive storage cupboards. Each bedroom is well fitted with fitted wardrobes and two have en suite shower rooms. The family bathroom has been recently refitted to include a walk in shower and under floor heating.

Balkan Hill House stands in an elevated position with magnificent views across the Dyfi Estuary
and the beautiful Cambrian coast. A short distance from centre Aberdovey, it enjoys both peace and quiet, while being close to the local amenities, the harbour, beaches and walks over Balkan Hill.

Aberdovey is situated within the Snowdonia National Park to the North of the Dyfi Estuary. Noted for its golden beaches, attractive harbour
with its sheltered anchorage for yachts and an 18 hole championship golf course, the pretty village also has bespoke shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. While popular with holiday makers, it has a strong permanent community with year round social events and activities. The Cambrian Coast Railway has a stop at both Aberdovey and Penhelig Stations with passenger services to Tywyn, Barmouth, Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Machynlleth and Shrewsbury.

Balkan Hill House is approached up a shared driveway to a parking area to the rear of the property with space for storing boats and trailers if required. There is a wide terrace to the south and west of the house with a sweeping lawn beyond trees of the magnificent views.
