Bowen Son & Watson are delighted with instructions to offer The Old Rectory at Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr for sale by private treaty. This most individual country property is thought to date from the Tudor times with a large Georgian extension added to create the spacious family home on offer today. Described by Wordsworth as "a comfortable abode" the property occupies a large private plot within the River Alwen Valley and offers a truly rural setting, yet is only just over 3 miles from the main A5 trunk road which links with Betws-y-Coed and Llangollen.
The property is situated on the fringes of the village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr. The village includes a renowned public house set on the banks of the River Alwen and is just over 3 miles from the larger village of Cerrigydrudion which offers a selection of local amenities. Locally the Llyn Brenig and Alwen Reservoirs offer a range of outdoor activities while the main A5 trunk road provides easy access to the village of Betws-y-Coed which is known as the gateway to Snowdonia. The A5 also links with the historic market town of Llangollen which is internationally renowned for the Eisteddfod, while the medieval town of Ruthin is also easily accessible.

The approach to the property is over a private gated driveway which opens into a large turning/parking area. Adjoining this is a stone outbuilding (4.41m x 3.31m) which has been partially converted and could make a useful annex or studio. The extensive lawns are bordered by woodland gardens adjoining the driveway and a timber summer house. There are two large green houses (one of which is 20' x 10' and is thermostatically heated), a log/coal store, timber storage shed and additional stone summer house. A well stocked walled garden leads to a laburnum, wisteria and rose arch with vegetable patch and oriental garden beyond. Completing the gardens is a paved patio with hot tub which provides an ideal outdoor entertaining space.
Note: We are advised by the vendors that additional neighbouring land of approximately 2.5 acres can be available by separate negotiation.
