Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Pen Y Bont is a beautifully restored and renovated traditional Welsh stone cottage, with an abundance of character standing in pretty gardens with stunning views overlooking the River Dyfi. Grade II listed, the property embraces period charm with its beamed ceilings, fireplaces and traditional slate floors combined with newly fitted double glazed oak framed windows framing the uninterrupted views across the river and valley beyond.

The Cottage has been comprehensively restored to include a new slate roof, new plumbing, re-wiring and structural work securing the property for future generations. It offers well presented accommodation with an attractive dining room with polished boarded floor and a wood burning stove, and adjoining sitting room with an immense inglenook fireplace. Both the kitchen/breakfast room along with the utility room, have been bespoke fitted by a local cabinet maker Nick Over. Upstairs there are two contemporary shower rooms, along with three double bedrooms.

With its outstanding location, period character and unrivalled views of the spectacular Welsh scenery, this property is a real gem, whether bought as a home or a holiday retreat.

The property stands in a quiet situation, close to the small rural village of Cemmaes Road, above the banks of the River Dyfi and just outside the southern edge of the Snowdonia National Park. Cemmaes Road is a small community, with its own post office, while there are shops, markets, local amenities including a community hospital and year round cultural events, five miles away in Machynlleth.

There are plenty of spectacular walking, cycling and riding routes nearby, the coastal town of Aberdovey, just 14 miles away, has sailing, and Aberdovey and Machynlleth both have golf courses. The River Dyfi is considered to be one of the finest seatrout rivers in Wales and fishing on the stretch below the house is by licence from the nearby Post Office.

The property is approached down a private lane and under the railway bridge before opening onto a large parking and turning area, with ample space for multiple vehicles. There is an outbuilding, with a kennel, a greenhouse, and additional storage space. The stock proof fenced gardens are a delight, with seating areas, flowerbeds, lawns and orchard with breathtaking vistas of the river and valley beyond. It is a truly special, tranquil place to escape to.
