Bowen Son and Watson are delighted with instructions to offer 1 Tai'r Aran in Bala for sale by informal tender. The property comprises part of a Grade II* listed former workhouse and retains a wealth of characterful features throughout. The vendor has retained the original doors which will form features of the conversion while the remainder of the workhouse has already been converted into most individual residential properties all set around a central courtyard. Detailed plans which have been passed by Gwynedd Council are available for inspection which outline the conversion with planning permission, Listed Buildings consent and Building Regulations Approval having been obtained. This therefore provides a rare opportunity to create a truly stunning property in this popular and picturesque town.
