Full description

Gwern Borter Country Manor and Estate has a rich and varied history, from its days as a Country estate and Hunting Lodge with its Royal Connections; to one of the leading Mink Farms in Europe; through to a superb Manor House with nine tenanted freehold properties. Situated just outside the beautiful Conwy Valley village of Rowen, Gwern Borter Estate stands in ten acres of grounds including formal landscaped gardens with lawns, mature trees and patio seating area, and paddocks ideal for grazing. The Manor House and outbuildings underwent a programme of renovation starting in 1987 creating the current accommodation available. The Manor House retains some superb original features including fireplaces, parquet flooring and oak panelling. To the ground floor an entrance porch leads into a lovely entrance hall and flows into the lounge, dining room, sitting room, kitchen with utility room and four pantries/larders, cloakroom and rear porch with log store. A lovely Victorian oak staircase leads from the Entrance Hall to the first floor where there are six double bedrooms, with one forming a suite with an additional lounge and five of the bedrooms have ensuite bath/shower rooms; and a shared bathroom. With separate access there is also a self contained second floor apartment with lounge, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. There is UPVC double glazing throughout with part oil fired central heating and part programmed economy electric radiators. To the front of the property a gravelled driveway provides ample off road parking and the formal gardens are laid out mainly to lawn. To the rear the freehold Cottages are laid out around a courtyard where there is further parking, the garage and access through to the paddocks. There is additional land across the road from Gwern Borter Manor.
The potential at this Country Estate is infinite. Additional cottages are possible (garage conversion) and the land that comes with the Estate has great possibilities. There is the potential to set up an equestrian centre with paddocks and potential stabling. The land across the road could be developed, with suitable planning and permissions with options including: eco pods, static caravans or housing (all with relevant permissions), or additional paddocks. There is huge scope to further develop Gwern Borter Country Estate in a variety of ways.
