The award winning architects have combined contemporary features with natural materials and inspired craftsmanship to create a unique house that exudes peace and a sense of wellbeing. Not far from the coast, the house is at the entrance to the delightful Dysynni valley and enjoys views of Bird Rock and Cadair Idris.

Cynefin provides light and attractive living space ideal for both everyday living and large scale entertaining. The sensitive shaping of the rooms is a visual delight and provides wonderful acoustics!

Built in 2002 and drawing upon the skills of local craftsmen, Cynefin is constructed of local stone, with a slate tile roof angled and sloped to reflect the mountainous skyline. The house sits comfortably into its surroundings with buttresses creating a visual link between the building and ground while terraces extend the living area to outside spaces with the garden beyond.

The prolific use inside of Welsh oak and ash blends well with the rounded lime plastered walls and an easy flow of rooms with arches and curves. The interior is light and airy with individually shaped windows framing vistas and remarkable views. Dafydd Davies-Hughes, an artisan carpenter has hand crafted all the doors to individual shapes and some incorporate the work of glass artist, Bill Swann. Of particular note is Davies-Hughes’s beautiful oak and ash staircase which smoothly winds and twists in natural form around the curved walls to the landing above. Sir Simon Jenkins, Chairman of the National Trust, former editor of The Times, and author on architecture has written that Cynefin is “an outstanding example of British craftsmanship in wood, on a par with the Arts and Crafts movement, and recalling the artistry of Antoni Gaudi.”

The house has a high level of insulation and double glazed oak windows throughout. A solar PV system generates electricity and exports excess to the grid earning a feed in tariff. Under floor heating throughout is powered by LPG.

The front door opens to a rounded reception hall with its stunning staircase and galleried landing above. Beyond is the striking split leve l drawing and dining room; a spacious and curvaceous room with defined dining and seating areas. It has glorious views up and across the Dysynni Valley and French windows open to one of the many
terraces. A garden room opens to a west facing terrace and provides an attractive sitting room. The kitchen cum breakfast room is fitted with
bespoke ash cupboards with granite work tops and fitted appliances including a range cooker, microwave and dish washer. It has slate flooring, a fitted larder and a neighbouring utility room with a range of fitted cupboards.

Every room in this house is diferent with its own individual features and this extends to the bedrooms. These include two on the ground floor, both with en suite shower rooms and fitted wardrobes. One is a versatile space with steps leading up to a mezzanine sleeping area and a study and sitting area below. Upstairs there are three spacious rooms, again all individual in shape and size with beautifully fitted bath/shower rooms, fitted wardrobes, and windows framing the glorious views.

Close to the beautiful Welsh coastline, Cynefin stands in an elevated position above the small village of Llanegryn. This is at the head of Snowdonia’s magnificent Dysynni Valley with views to Bird Rock and Cader Idris beyond. The village has a newly built primary school, medieval church and community hall.

• The nearby town of Tywyn offers good local amenities, and Machynlleth has a popular weekly market. The popular holiday town of Aberdovey with its fine beaches and its famous links golf course is an easy ten minute drive.
• There is a regular Network Rail service along the spectacular route from Shrewsbury to Porthmadog, and this stops at Tywyn.
• The area is noted for its stunning mountains and unspoilt beaches providing opportunities for walking, sailing, golf, fishing and numerous other activities.

Silvered oak hand crafted electric gates open to a gravel parking area with the stone built garage and work shop to one side and from where an archway leads through to a sheltered courtyard
paved with mellow York stone. Sculpted terraces with stone retaining walls and water features extend from the house and provide seating areas that enable all aspects of the view to be enjoyed and the sun to be followed round throughout the day.

Sweeping lawns, stocked beds and borders, specimen trees and a wildlife area have been designed to enhance the house and provide all year round interest. Above the house is a delightful kitchen garden with lavender borders and productive beds with a feature seating area.

The name Cynefin is a Welsh word implying “A sense of place”. This quality has been achieved through the harmonious design of both the house and garden, where the contemporary design blends with the local materials and craftsmanship
to give a feeling of timelessness and sense of belonging.
