Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Walter Lloyd Jones are honoured to act upon the valued instructions of Mr & Mrs John Hughes to market a genuinely rare opportunity, seldom encountered in these parts, to acquire a portfolio of residences comprising:

Y Llwyn

A truly imposing Grade II* Listed Residence with historical provenance being originally the mainstay of a local landed Estate. Of considerable note, the accommodation retains its original splendour and provides an unparalleled opportunity for interested parties seeking a unique country residence, on the periphery of a quaint market town at the foothills of Snowdonia National Park's most iconic landscapes.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and offers public rooms of notable proportions, incorporating iconic period features, together with ten bedrooms. The Grounds are also most worthy of note comprising a private gated driveway and long established formal gardens.

Bwthyn Y Llwyn

A most well-appointed and wholly detached residence dating back to the Seventeenth Century, standing in its own enclosed grounds. Diligently refurbished throughout to the Owners' exacting standards and all in all an epitome of regional architecture at the time.

Helm Y Llwyn

An exemplary sympathetic residential conversion, addressing the practicalities of modern living without prejudicing centuries of heritage. Thoughtfully arranged accommodation retaining and showcasing original structural features within a contemporary living environment.

Together with a parcel of land providing scope for potential alternative uses subject to obtaining the requisite statutory consents.

Dolgellau can be safely described as one of North Wales' most picturesque traditional market towns. Having been the main administrative town of the County for centuries the townscape comprises a rich tapestry of traditional buildings of various styles and eras set against an idyllic rural backdrop. Its epitomising plethora of narrow streets and open squares symbolises a town of historical importance, subsequently influenced by Georgian and Victorian schools of architecture.
