Description - Nestled in the heart of the Dovey Forest, Hendre Meredith is truly a one off opportunity to create an exceptional place to live. All too often the phrase unique or one off is used to describe a conversion opportunity but you will not find another one like Hendre Meredith. One particular feature of the property will be the number of doors, windows and skylights, which will allow the interior to be flooded with natural light. Having obtained full planning permission subject to signing a 106 agreement for affordable housing with Snowdonia Park Authority. The vendors are now looking for someone who will do the conversion justice and really appreciate this magnificent building for years to come.
Builiding History - We believe Hendre Meredith started life as a Victorian slate working shed that was associated with the Gartheiniog Slate Quarry, which is slightly further up the valley. Although the mill played an important part, in its latter years it was used as a sawmill by the forestry commission.
Internally - Internally the building is a blank canvas and has 10 enormous original pine trusses that span the entire width of the building.
Externally - Externally the building is constructed of natural pillared Welsh slate walling and a Welsh slate roof, which has been locally quarried within a few hundred meters. The structure of the building has been given a clean bill of health by a structural engineer bar some small localised rebuilding.
Grounds - The spacious grounds offer ample scope for landscaping and are surrounded by wonderful woodland views. There is a driveway to the side of the property which leads to a slate building to the rear of the slate mill will be used to house the silent generator for the electricity supply.
Services - Water will be provided from the natural spring that rises in the land behind the property. Electricity can be provided by a silent generator and solar panels linked to an array of batteries. This will provide the opportunity to be self sufficient.
Planning Permission - Full planning permission subject to signing a 106 agreement, for affordable housing, with Snowdonia Park Authority. To convert the slate mill into a single large private dwelling that will provide an impressive 5750 square foot of living accommodation on the ground floor with 2 bays on the first floor into the roof space. As can be seen from the plans there is ample scope to alter the internal layout to provide very large and flexible living accommodation. The vendors were offered the reclaimed materials within the fabric of the building, but having viewed this important piece of heritage, actively sought to purchase the freehold and save the property from demolition.
Holiday Accommodation - Full planning planning permission subject to a signing a 106 agreement, for affordable housing the vendor has agreed to provide 2 extra passing places on the road up to the mill and also to pay a £30,000 which is split into thirds. £10.000 payable on signing the agreement, which will be paid by the vendors, the 2nd and 3rd payments are to be paid by the purchaser.
