Barmouth, LL42

Guide price

Bedrooms: 6
A fantastic opportunity has arisen to purchase this superb six bedroom detached country house sitting upon a substantial 35.80 acre plot in a private and elevated setting, with mature hillside gardens featuring follies, woodland and a private quay, in addition to superb panoramic views over the Mawddach estuary towards Cader Idris.

The property is a Grade II Listed Georgian house built in 1820 and is renowned for its fairytale-like gardens with hints of Italian and Japanese influences and its abundance of charming and elegant features, and has been included in various articles including Country Life in 1975.

The property offers extensive and versatile accommodation throughout, with the ground floor boasting a number of generously sized reception rooms, a bright multi-aspect orangery with incredible views, stone flooring and a range of French doors to the terrace and gardens, a modern kitchen with appliances and a central island, a separate utility room with a set of secondary stairs to the first floor landing, a Welsh parlour, a cloakroom WC and a welcoming entrance hall and inner hall with storage, each of which have sets of stairs to the first floor landing.

An impressive staircase leads from the inner hall to the main first floor landing which has fitted cupboards offering ample storage space and leads to four large bedrooms, all of which feature elevated views over the estuary and two of which have en-suite shower rooms. There is also a fifth bedroom with views over the garden and an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom off the main landing. The main landing also leads to a secondary landing incorporating fitted cupboards and off which is a sixth bedroom having views over the garden. Beyond the sixth bedroom are additional rooms comprising a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and study which can be accessed from the secondary staircase and could form a self-contained flat if desired. The property also benefits from ample cellar spaces providing further storage space and potential for conversion (this would be subject to the relevant planning permissions).

Externally the property is set within extensive and mature hillside and estuary gardens nestled within beautiful enchanting woodland and established beds and trees to include pines, firs, spruces, rhododendrons and azaleas to name a few. The main feature of the property has to be the front facing stone terrace with incredible views over the gardens, the estuary and the surrounding countryside, giving the property the feel of an Italian lakeside villa. There is also a private quay where the grounds meet the estuary.

A private drive leads up to the property and provides ample off-road parking, and there are multiple outbuildings including a double garage and three single garages, a derelict former inn which could have development potential, a coach house which could form a self-contained apartment ideal for guests or holiday rentals (this would be subject to the relevant planning permissions) and an Arts and Crafts Dovecote which is lovingly named as Dove Castle. There are also extensive greenhouses, a potting shed and several ancillary buildings currently used for storage purposes.

The property is located in a tranquil setting at the tip of Snowdonia National Park, where part of the Panorama Walk route to Barmouth passes through the grounds some distance from the house and is bordered by high stone walls affording privacy.

Early viewing is highly recommended due to the property being realistically priced.
