Bryntirion stands in a spectacular setting overlooking the Upper Dee Valley, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and adjoins the Snowdonia National Park.

It is conveniently placed for the nearby village of Corwen whilst the larger centres of Bala, Ruthin and Chester, which offer a more comprehensive range of services, are all very accessible.

On the recreational front there is fishing on the River Dee, numerous local pheasant shoots, sailing at Bala and extensive walking. For the golfing enthusiasts there are several golf courses nearby including at Bala and Llangollen.

Despite its rural location, the area enjoys good road communications being within a mile of the A5 accessing Chester, Shrewsbury and Wrexham. Both Liverpool and Manchester, which are served by international airports, are within daily travelling distance and there is a regular rail service to London from both Chester and Shrewsbury stations.

Description

Bryntirion is described in the Grade II Listing as a fine well-preserved mid-C19 gentry villa. On the attractive front façade it bears the date 1852 and the construction includes a combination of classical symmetry and some Tudor-Gothic detail. It has rendered elevations beneath a slate roof and was built on the site of an earlier farmhouse, which appears on the Tithe map of 1838 and part of the original structure adjoins the rear of the house.

The accommodation is arranged on two floors, with a cellar. There is a central section with wings to the north and south. To the north and above the kitchens is a staff flat with a separate first floor access from the rear.

The house is approached from the road between stone gate posts and via a long tree lined drive which divides at the side of the house, the main part continuing between gates to a turning circle at the front.

The porch has a pair of doors and a glazed front door beneath a fan light opens into the entrance hall with a tiled floor. To either side are impressive reception rooms. The library is a charming room with a fireplace with fitted book shelves and cupboards to either side and French doors opening into the garden. The dining room again has a fireplace and some impressive moulded cornicing and a ceiling rose as well as a built in display cabinet.

At the core of the house is a staircase hall with storage cupboards and a corridor leading to an elegant drawing room with a fireplace and French doors to the garden. A back hall serves the morning room, the kitchen and office and there are back stairs to the first floor and an exterior door to a parking area at the side of the house. There is also a cloakroom with a separate wc. Beyond the kitchen is a laundry room and larder/store. Steps lead past a coal store to the back of the house.

The principal stairs lead to an attractive galleried landing and corridors leading to the five first floor bedrooms, the majority enjoying lovely views over the gardens and countryside beyond. A sixth bedroom is currently used as a study and there are two bathrooms. A door beyond a large linen cupboard provides access to the staff flat, with a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Gardens and grounds

Brytirion is set in magnificent mature gardens with a backdrop of mainly deciduous woodland with some fine specimen beech trees. The structured gardens have been lovingly maintained and have many points of interest including a rose garden, a pond, stone walls and steps, terracing and stunning yew hedges with impressive topiary. Near the kitchen garden is a garden store and potting shed and a greenhouse. A second access to the road sweeps past an orchard and a former grass tennis court.

Beside the house are outbuildings providing garaging and storage.

Not immediately adjoining the house, but a short distance along the road, are two fields opposite one another, both with separate road access.

The total acreage is 8.33 acres.
