Property Description Upon first inspection one would consider the Castle to belong to the 18th century. However it was actually only recently completed in 1994 making it one of the youngest castles in the country. Construction of the castle originally began in 1977 and was completed in four phases by architect John Taylor who constructed this property for himself. The current owner has left no stone unturned throughout its latest renovation with upgrades to its interior as well as a new additional wing and a triple garage. Throughout the property are a number of state of the art finishings including invisible wall speakers, grand fire places, hidden stair cases, double glazing, draft proofing and a panoramic viewing area. Viewing is highly recommended as there is an abundance of features to be appreciated.

Accomodation and Tenancies The property is approached through a set of grand wrought iron gates via a winding road which conveniently conceals the castle from passers by along the A494. The property is tastefully littered with artworks crafted by well known craftsmen with the first being a dragon carved out of a 200 years (approx) tree which actually breathes fire upon a guests entry through the gates. The entire front of the property is enclosed by a solid stone wall, complementary to the fortress like theme throughout the property. The property is surrounded by circa 46 acres of land with the castle sitting on a crest (1000ft above sea level approx) commanding spectacular panoramic views across the Clwyd valley and Snowdon in the distance. Immediately surrounding the property are scenic grounds including a wildlife pound, flower beds and a beautiful water feature. There is also planning consent in place for an extension to the rear of the property for leisure facilities including an infinity swimming pool.
