Description

Sant y Nyll is an imposing, impressive Georgian style house of considerable character. Designed by the highly regarded architect Sir Percy Thomas in 1924, the house features grand period features throughout its spacious accommodation.

The property is approached via a long, gated driveway which elevates gently to the front of the property providing ample parking area.

Entered via an original, solid wood entrance door, an elegant reception hall features a turning staircase leading to the first floor and provides access to principle rooms.

There are three principal living rooms, all of which enjoy commanding views across the private 12 acres and surrounding countryside. These include the elegant dining hall with doors leading to the garden, the attractive sitting room with a feature gas fire and marble hearth, and the charming library with wood flooring and panelled sash windows.

An inner hallway provides access to a breakfast room which leads to the Orangery. With its vaulted glass roof and solid oak floor, this exquisite room is dominated by the commanding garden views.

The large kitchen and breakfast room featuring Sandstone flooring has been fitted with a range of units in solid wood and granite work surfaces incorporates two integral ovens, two induction hobs and plate heater, Neff coffee maker, wine cooler and double fridge.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room, where the Sandstone flooring continues through here and there is a range of base and wall level units, space for an American style fridge/freezer and plumbing facilities.

Approached via a short single flight stair case, a basement level houses the boiler and a dry wine cellar and storage.

The ground floor is completed by a downstairs bathroom, incorporating a Heritage three piece bathroom suite comprising a roll top bath, vanity sink, walk-in shower and floor to ceiling ceramic tiles.

To the first floor, approached from a wide turning staircase, an impressive central landing provides access to five of the six bedrooms. The very large principal bedroom, which enjoys a southerly aspect over the gardens, features a very spacious dressing room (formerly a bedroom) and large en-suite facilities. The second bedroom is also of large proportions and enjoys a southerly aspect. Bedrooms two, three, four and five are all serviced by the large, contemporary family bathroom.

The second floor houses the sixth bedroom with Velux windows, a walk-in wardrobe and storage across the eaves.

Outside, the property features a stable block comprising four large stables and tack storage. Down from the stable block is a ménage.

The grounds at Sant y Nyll extend to approximately 12 acres and are a true delight, approached from a private automatic gated entrance, a meandering driveway leads through manicured and landscaped gardens to the imposing property entrance. Here, there is ample car parking space. The garden is very well stocked with mature trees and well-tended ornamental beds. The grounds include pathways, terraces, a children’s playground area, a large pond and plenty of space for al-fresco dining.
