Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An extended 19th Century four bedroom detached cottage enjoying an elevated position in the village of Ffrith. An individual property that retains much of its original character whilst benefiting from modern facilities. Once a busy community quarrying for limestone and mining for lead, Ffrith is now a much quieter village. Bell Mount is situated within eyesight of the disused viaduct built across the Nant-y-Ffrith stream.

Ffrith is situated midway between Wrexham and Mold in the picturesque Ceriog valley. The primary school at Llanfynydd is within one mile and Castell Alun High School in Hope is just over 3.5 miles from the village.

Specification 
The original stone built cottage was extended in the 1980's to include a dining room, utility room and first floor bedroom, before a further extension was built several years ago, enabling the creation of a further bedroom on the ground floor. The property is heated from an oil fired high flow combination boiler delivering hot water on demand. The uPVC double glazed windows and doors were fitted within the past ten years when the bathroom was also replaced.


Porch 
A stone built porch leading into the living room has space to hang coats and store footwear.

Living Room 
4.31m x 4.14m (14'2" x 13'7")
The focal point of the living room is the stone built inglenook fireplace into which a log burner has been installed. The recessed shelves, exposed stonework and ceiling beams reflect the period of the original cottage. A wooden board floor has been laid to compliment the character of the room. An open staircase leads to the first floor accommodation.

Dining Room 
2.53m x 3.46m (8'4" x 11'4")
The wooden board floor has been extended into the dining room. The interior stone wall in the dining room has been lightly plastered to maintain the uneven surface; reminding us of when it would have been an external wall. The dining room opens into the kitchen.

Kitchen 
3.22m x 3.04m (10'7" x 10'0")
In-keeping with the character of the property, traditional shaker style cabinets with an oak effect appearance have been fitted together with a grey and autumn blend style slate floor covering. The kitchen has space for a dishwasher and upright fridge freezer. The room features a designer vertical radiator and under-cupboard lighting. The electric range style double oven (pictured) is not included in the sale price.

Utility Room 
2.19m x 2.69m (7'2" x 8'10")
A stable door leads from the kitchen into the utility room. Here there is space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Immediately outside of the utility room there is a raised timber decking area with views of the viaduct.

Study / Fourth Bedroom 
2.15m x 3.32m (7'1" x 10'11")
The study is situated off the dining room on the ground floor. This room could also be used as a fourth bedroom.

Landing 
The porthole window offers a natural stream of sunlight onto the landing. The natural stone is revealed through the plaster covered stone walls on the landing and in the bedrooms; the rustic wooden doors that lead you into the bedrooms are fitted with Suffolk latches and black tee hinges, reflecting the original character of this property. The landing and bedrooms have a biscuit colour effect twist carpet.

Bathroom 
A white P-bath with a shower fitted over compliments the white ceramic wash hand basin and close coupled W.C. pan. The bathroom has a grey ceramic tile floor with underfloor heating installed and Dove grey mosaic wall tiles. A chrome towel warmer and mechanical extractor fan has been installed. From the bathroom there is loft access; the loft has been partially boarded.

Bedroom 1 
4.01m x 3.06m (13'2" x 10'0")
The first and original bedroom has built-in wardrobes that have knotted pine doors. The present occupier has furnished the room with a Super King size bed, two bedside cabinets and chest of drawers. The sloping ceiling and cottage style windows together with the alcoves around the bed help to maintain the original cottage ambiance.

Bedroom 2 
2.00m x 3.45m (6'7" x 11'4")
The second bedroom will accommodate a single bed and furniture.

Bedroom 3 
2.15m x 4.69m (7'1" x 15'5")
Although this room was added several years ago, with its sloping ceiling and cottage style window, its style reflects that of the other rooms throughout the property.

Driveway 
From the road a shared driveway leads to Bell Mount and the neighbouring property. The tarmac drive extends onto the grounds of the property up to a garage.

Garage 
Originally two cars were parked in the garage; some of the space is now used as a storage area for garden equipment etc. Inside the garage there is a mechanics type pit. There is space to park three of more cars alongside and in front of the garage.

Garden 
To the front of the house, the sloping garden is planted with mature trees and flowing shrubs around a lawn. Under the hazelnut tree is a patio area made from railway sleepers and covered in slate chippings; this part of the garden captures the midday sun. The garden bench on the imprinted concrete at the top of the garden commands an elevated position. To one side of the house a raised bed is planted with summer flowering annual and perennial plants; what appears to be the original ice house is now used to store wood. In front of the timber decking outside of the utility room, a rotary washing line is fixed amongst the Yorkshire stone chippings.

Fixtures and Fittings 
The carpets, light fittings and curtain poles are included in the sale price. The garden shed will be left in situ. The range style double oven, Super King size bed and bedside cabinets will be sold subject to separate negotiation with the house owner.

Council Tax 
Bell Mount has a council tax rating band F.
