Property Description

Nant y Gwreiddyn is a comfortably sized 2/3 bedroom cottage in a stunning location on the outskirts of Llanfachreth, less than 3 miles from the market town of Dolgellau. The property is of stone construction set under traditional Blaenau Ffestiniog slate roof and set in a truly magnificently beautiful spot with 180 degree views of the surrounding countryside.
The property benefits from wooden windows, plastic rainwater goods and large grounds amounting to approx. 1.81 acres. Internally, the property is in good condition with surprisingly large rooms, a modern kitchen and bathroom and a blank canvas for redecorating. The original barn was built in 1799 and was saved from total ruin by the current owners and completely renovated between 1987 and 1990. There are several unique characteristics such as the original stone steps belonging to the barn and a mezzanine above the kitchen.
The property benefits from mains electricity and water supply with a septic tank drainage system. The cooker is fueled by LPG gas. The property does not have central heating but has an electric immersion heater for hot water and a powerful woodfired stove in the lounge.
Outside, the 1.81 acre plot offers is mostly grazing land and a sizeable low-maintenance garden. There is a strip of woodland running behind the property which houses two wooden sheds.
