The property stands in an elevated position with a splendid east facing aspect with extensive panoramic views over the Vale of Clwyd to the Clwydian Mountain Range. Located off a minor country lane leading to the hamlet of Graigadwywynt, the market town of Ruthin is just three miles to the north where there is an excellent range of local amenities and good road links to Mold 13 miles and Chester 26 miles from Eyarth Hall.

Eyarth Hall is believed to date from the late 16th century with origins as far back as 1100. Archaelogia Cambrionis tells us the Hall was once owned by the Lord of Chirk. Rice Williams, who built Eyarth Hall in 1593, was the personal assistant of Gabriel Goodman, who was the 5th Dean of Westminster Abbey during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Thereafter, the property was owned by the Wynne family and then by James Goodrich in the late 1870s, who was High Sheriff of Denbighshire. Prior to the current ownership, the Clarke family who founded the Youth Hostel Association were resident.

An outstanding Grade II Listed Elizabethan Country House set in about 15 acres. The property has spectacular breath-taking panoramic views along the Clwydian Range and is some three miles from the market town of Ruthin, 13 miles from Mold and 26 miles from Chester.

The Hall has been sub-divided by the current owners between the main six bedroom house and the four bedroom cottage. The vertical division is effected by a single, thick wall from the ground floor to the roof. Combined with the slope of the garden each property gains exceptional privacy from one another and therefore offers the purchaser with a versatile option to use the property as one or as two individual properties suitable for two generations of the same family to share, if required.

Eyarth Hall is in part stone, half-timbered with some rendered elevations beneath a slate roof. Internally there is some fine timber work with exposed beams and panelling, plus several date plaques, and a wig cupboard.

In brief the Main Hall affords: entrance vestibule, reception hall, inner hall with a fine staircase, two reception rooms, fitted kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, first floor split level landing, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, second floor 2 bedrooms and attic room.

The attached Cottage includes: Four large bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom, recently installed kitchen/diner with Aga, living room with stone fireplace, study & wc. The Cottage can be used as a separate individual property or can be used in connection with the main house. There are some elements of works required within the cottage to finish it off and therefore offers great scope and flexibility for the purchaser.

Both residences have their own private sweeping driveways with delightful well stocked gardens which can be used separately or can link together as a whole. The front gardens have original Elizabethan terracing which have a listing by Cadw.

The property has the benefit of a Dutch barn with new external timber paneling and would offer a range of uses including stabling for horses having a concrete floor and frontage and steel corrugated sheet roof.

There is a small paddock with water connected. Further adjacent land and woodland is available by separate negotiation.

Mains electricity.
Shared private water supply from a bore hole.
Private drainage system.
Oil fired central heating.
