Property Description

Full description

Town and Country Oswestry are delighted to offer to the market this CHARMING TRADITIONAL WELSH STONE FARMHOUSE set in the beautiful Dee Valley and Berwyn Mountains. The accommodation provides a comfortable and cosy home and comprises - porch, lounge with dining area, sunroom overlooking the rear garden and pasture, kitchen/breakfast room, ground floor shower room together with two double bedrooms and an upstairs third bedroom/study. The house is largely original and presents a rare opportunity to purchase an unspoiled house of this type. It has been carefully maintained and is mostly double-glazed with a floor area totalling over 1,600 sq.ft. This provides huge potential for any purchaser to create a superior conversion, particularly with the spacious adjacent barn with heating, presently used as a studio workshop and office. There is certainly the potential to run a small business utilising this building. There is in addition a range of outbuildings including a stone-built wood store and a double length garage. The garden is a haven for wildlife attracting many birds, butterflies and bees. Whilst being secluded, the property isn't isolated and though totally rural, is less than a mile from the A5.

Directions - From Llangollen head west along the A5 towards Corwen. Pass through the Village of Glyndyfrdwy and the Berwyn Arms will be seen on the right. Start slowing down when approaching the bend and look for a stone wall on the left hand side. There are mirrors opposite with our Town and Country pointers. Turn left here and follow the lane up the hill where the property will be seen towards the top on the left hand side.

Property Information - The property is a traditional Welsh stone farmhouse that is on the market for the first time in 36 years. The property is situated up a council maintained no-through road and is therefore very quiet. While being secluded, the property is not isolated and, though totally rural, is less that a mile from the A5, with its easy transport links. The beautiful town of Llangollen with all its attractions, including its heritage railway, is ten minutes away. There are primary and secondary schools there and a primary school in Carrog, approximately two miles distant. The house itself is in the Berwyn mountains overlooking the village of Glyndyfrdwy and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has good views and is a superb base for walking. The property has mains water (pumped up from a holding tank), electricity and a telephone line. Internet access is good. Drainage is to a septic tank. A range and wood burning stove provide heating. As back up there are two storage radiators and an oil-fired central heating system.

The house is not subject to flooding and is very sheltered.

There is one and a half acres of pasture behind the house that has four magnificent mature oaks on it. This would be suitable for free-range hens or goats with a flatter area that could become a smallholding.

The land has never been anything but organic. The garden area has cowslips, primroses, Welsh poppies, daffodils and probably thousands of snowdrops.
