If in your search for the ideal family home or holiday retreat in a Gwynedd village setting, you are seeking something out of the ordinary or maybe even downright quirky, we would highly recommend that you view this unique yet lovely grade II listed former school house that stands amidst a magnificent wooded and mountainous vista in the scenic village of Maentwrog.
The dwelling whose origins are believed to date back to the mid-19th century, has over recent years undergone an extensive programme of sympathetic restoration and modernisation by the present owner, revealing much of the style and character you would expect from a property of this type.
On entering the house, you are greeted by an Aladdin's cave of internal features, such as splendid staircases and galleried landings, spectacular beamed and vaulted ceilings, together with eye catching timber framed windows, a Galleried Bedroom as well as bookcases that are also doors and even a secret room.
The well proportioned 3 storey accommodation, which benefits from timber framed double glazing throughout and Oil Fired Central Heating, can if required, be easily separated to form a self contained annexe for holiday letting or other purposes.
In its entirety, the accommodation includes on the ground floor an Entrance Hall, a Sizeable Lounge and Sitting Room, a Library/Study, Dining Room and Secret Room together with 2 Fitted Kitchens, a Utility Room and various Storage Rooms. The first floor provides a Double Bedroom and 3 Dressing Rooms, all with En Suite Shower Rooms, additionally the Dressing Rooms have stairways leading up to their respective second floor Double Bedrooms.

LOCATION The picturesque village of Maentwrog stands at the far end of the outstandingly beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog within the confines of the Snowdonia National Park. The area is also well placed for the many other coastal and rural attractions to be found in this part of Gwynedd, including Portmeirion, the Italianate village and botanic gardens built by Sir Clough Williams Ellis. The nearby town of Porthmadog and its neighbouring communities ensure that with a wide range of shops, essential services and recreational facilities, your every need is well catered for. An excellent road network can take you further afield to explore the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula or to the towns of Caernarfon and Bangor, linking up with the A55 expressway, allowing rapid westward transit to the lovely isle of Anglesey or eastward, passing along the North Wales coast, towards Chester, Liverpool & Manchester, ultimately joining up with the UK motorway complex.
