Full description

The property
The Oaks was originally the home of the engineer to the Lake Vyrnwy Estate and dates back to the early 1900s. The property has more recently been run as a bed and breakfast and now as a second home and holiday let. The property boasts extensive dining and entertaining space with windows that frame the views from the elevated and highly desirable position.

The property retains much of the original charm and character including panelled doors, parquet wood flooring, sash windows and cornicing. Located from the main hallway is access to the dining room and drawing room. The drawing room benefits from a log burner with slate hearth whilst the dining room has stunning views over the surrounding countryside towards Lake Vyrnwy. The modern kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units, granite work tops and ample dining space. Adjoining the kitchen is the sitting room with a fire place and views over the rear garden. The property has an additional front and rear door, separate to the main entrance, the additional door provides access to the utility and study areas.

The first floor is accessed via the options of two staircases and thus the property has worked well as holiday let/bed and breakfast. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom and the guest bedroom also has a en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms along with two bathrooms.

The Oaks sits next to Lake Vyrnwy, a 24,000 acre RSPB reserves set amidst the remote and beautiful Berwyn Mountains. It offers spectacular waterfalls, unspoilt open countryside and is the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia and the coast from Harlech to Aberystwyth. There is extensive walking, with viewpoints and hides around the Lake to observe the amazing variety of birds and scenery. There are numerous activities in the area including boating, cycling, walking and horse trails. Llanwddyn is a village within Lake Vyrnwy Estate where there is a post office, café, several gift shops and popular hotel with restaurant and spa. Llanfyllin is located about 10 miles away and offers further amenities including shops, public houses, medical centre and both primary and secondary education. A wider selection of shops and amenities can be found in Welshpool, Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

The property is approached via a drive way with ample parking to the front of the house, along with a double garage, stable and small front garden. A gravel path rises behind the house with Rhododendron and Laurel hedging. The extensive garden is terraced and predominately laid to lawn with fruit trees. The terrace boasts views over the property towards Lake Vyrnwy and the Berwyn Mountains. A stream runs down the side of the garden.
