An idyllic rural four bedroom property having flexible internal layout and great scope for full refurbishment, Stables & Paddock; set within 2 acres.
An idyllic rural property set within 2 acres, nestling among the foothills of the Berwyn Mountains in the Tanat Valley. Bwlch-y- Greolen is a converted lead mining Foundry building currently comprising of three double bedrooms with a fourth smaller bedroom, a family bathroom, living room and large kitchen dining room with a recently installed wood fired Rayburn cooker which also provides the hot water and central heating. There is an open galleried landing with large windows flooding light into the property, a large bedroom completes the first floor area. The property was purchased by the current Vendor some thirty years ago and has been an ongoing project of conversion from the Foundry building it once was. The building was re-roofed with the original Welsh slate, newly felted and battened which can be visible internally. The original local stone walls are exposed internally which fills the property with character. There is an arched tunnel which originally allowed the steam from the steam engine generator to escape the building providing an enchanting feature.
The property, in its current condition, is in need of refurbishment and upgrading and would provide a substantial family home as the internal layout could be very flexible due to the property’s original construction as a large barn. The neighbouring property was originally the managers house for the lead mine, with stables on the ground floor level, of which this has since been converted and upgraded into a family home.
Bwlch-y- Greolen is accessed off a quiet country lane down a pretty stone track to the front of house where there is a good parking sweep. Externally the property has mature gardens with a mixture of trees, shrubs and planted borders. A small pond within the garden is fed by a stream which flows down through the property ending at the brook to the lower end of the grounds. The stable building provides space for one large stable at the far end with further space for more stables if required, a workbench runs along the one side.
It is understood that the property has excellent off road hacking and outriding from its door step, tracks of which can lead to Lake Vyrnwy.
