Full description

Pennal Towers is a striking conversion of the Coach House standing in the "pleasure gardens" of the original Victorian mansion of the same name. It commands stunning views of the gardens, woodland and surrounding hills and is situated close to the beautiful Dyfi Estuary and coastal village of Aberdovey.

The house offers light and attractive accommodation with the potential to extend into the adjoining coach house. The front door opens from a glazed conservatory with slate floor into the hall with doors opening to the striking open plan dining and drawing room with deep windows framing the stunning views and a Clearview multi-fuel stove. The kitchen with beech work surfaces and Rangemaster oven lies to the rear of the property with doors opening out to the garden beyond. The adjacent W.C. and utility room opens to the unconverted coach house which has considerable scope to create a wonderful kitchen/living room with further bedrooms above (subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission).

To the first floor there is a cosy sitting room area and three double bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and stunning views over the surrounding hills, along with two bathrooms.

Pennal Towers stands in a stunning location surrounded by beautiful rolling hills on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. Situated above the village of Pennal, with its Primary School, a well reputed gastro public house, church and village shop. There is a further range of amenities including restaurants, galleries, shops, recreational and educational facilities in both Machynlleth and the university town of Aberystwyth.

Aberdovey is only four miles away and is a base for many outdoor pursuits including sailing, fishing and golf, while the awe-inspiring Snowdonia National Park with its craggy peaks and over 200 lakes, is renowned for its walking, mountain biking and kayaking.

Trains run from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury, which provide services to Manchester and London. There is also a direct train service to Birmingham. The A458 provides easy access to Welshpool, Oswestry, Shrewsbury and beyond.

The house is approached through a five bar gate with a long gravel driveway leading up through mature woodland to a parking area to the front of the house.

The garden and woodland have been beautifully
regenerated by the current owners with its heritage as a Victorian pleasure park giving it structure and variety with its rolling lawns, specimen trees to include giant Sequoias, Copper Beech, Acers and stunning Turkey Oak. A garden which offers all year round colour and interest, it comes to life in spring with blue bell walks and banks of snowdrops, azaleas and rhodendron, while in the summer and Autumn the canopies of different trees create stunning vistas framed by varied colours. The cosy summer house with its wood burning stove has been built on the site of the original mansion and has a terrace and sunken garden and provides a superb space for all year round entertaining and a quiet retreat.

Approximately 9 acres of well maintained grazing land to the rear of the property is available by separate negotiation and includes fishing rights on the River Pennal. The land provides the house with complete privacy, along with access to the stunning valley below. The land would lend itself to a variety of livestock or equestrian use if so required.
