The property is situated on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant close to the confluence of the River’s Tanat and Rhaeadr in the stunning Berwyn Mountains. The village itself offers a good range of local amenities. Llanrhaeadr is also home to Pistyll Rhaeadr counted as one of the Seven Wonders of Wales.
The village has an excellent Primary School whilst the area is well served by state secondary schools at Oswestry & Llanfyllin. These are complimented by a selection of private schools including Oswestry School, Moreton Hall, Packwood Haugh, Ellesmere College and Shrewsbury School.
The property is set within the rugged Berwyn Mountains which have an ever increasing tourism industry and offer a host of outdoor pursuits including walking, shooting, fishing and mountain biking.
Originally forming part of the Wynnstay Estate, the property has an attractive 19th century frontage with an earlier farmhouse now serving as its rear wing. The property has remained in the current owner’s family for over 100 years and this sale therefore offers a unique opportunity to purchase one of the area’s most historic homes.
Clynog is approached over a well-maintained driveway (which is owned by the property) with original iron carriage & walking gates leading onto the courtyard (with adjoining lawned area) which provides access to the property and ample parking.
A warm and inviting first impression is provided by the Porch and Entrance Hall with a tessellated tiled floor and rose patterned leaded glass window. The adjoining Music Room has a beautiful carved oak open fireplace together with exposed oak beams and flooring.
To the other side of the Hallway is a Sitting Room leading into an impressive Dining Room which would have originally served as the Kitchen with the former brick range having been adapted to an open fireplace and the original meat hooks/rails and house bells still in place.
At the heart of the house is the spacious Kitchen/Lounge with a Living/Dining area centered around the Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and original bread oven. The room opens into the Kitchen itself with a comprehensive range of fitted units and an Oil-Fired Rayburn. Off the Kitchen are a spacious Utility Room and Walk in Pantry whilst there is also access to the Integral Garage and a Cloak Room.
Above the rear elevation is a Gallery Landing and large Loft Storage area. This space offers a host of future uses perhaps as a separate annex or for holiday letting opportunities (subject to any necessary planning consents).
Adjoining the main staircase is the original Gun Room with its oak flooring and grate. Below this room is a useful Cellar.
The First Floor has a spacious Landing leading to 5 well-proportioned Bedrooms all of which have excellent views over open countryside or the gardens. All the rooms are served by a Family Bathroom.
On the second Floor are five further rooms which although only used as attic storage at present could easily be converted back into living accommodation.
The property stands within mature gardens which are laid to lawn and vegetable plots with a host of flowering beds and shrubs all enclosed by stone walls. Leading off the front of the property is a small gravelled terrace taking advantage of views over the garden and surrounding countryside. To the side of the property is a further garden area with a large Yew Tree.
The driveway continues around the rear of the property and gives access into the Orchard which extends to around 0.59 acre (0.24 ha). The orchard itself contains a host of mature fruit trees and could also be used as a small paddock.
