    7 bedroom detached house for sale
    Glandwr Mill occupies a sheltered position beneath a small wooded valley in the most picturesque grounds and through which the River Dwynant flows passing under an attractive arched stone bridge into the estuary. Believed to date in part from the 17th century Glandwr Mill was converted in the mid-20th century and it has recently undergone a comprehensive programme of refurbishment. The property is constructed principally of stone under a slate roof incorporating a verandah at first floor level which connects the Mill House to the former Granary. To the front of the property is an open fronted and arched portico reminiscent in style to the work of the celebrated architect Clough Williams-Ellis who was responsible for designing the village of Portmeirion just beyond Porthmadog.

    Internally the accommodation, which is arranged on three floors, offers generous and fully modernised family accommodation with the benefit of double-glazing to the majority of rooms and relatively recent oil central heating boiler.

    Attached to the cottage is a collection of buildings which are suitable for a variety of uses, being ideal for somebody wishing to develop the existing holiday lettings business, or alternatively as a gallery, restaurant, or offices subject to planning permissions. The former Granary is an impressive two storey stone and slate range which already has planning permission in place for a two bedroom dwelling. An impressive oak gallery mezzanine complements the vaulted ceiling and open aspect. Attached to the former Granary is a return range with utility room, stores and garaging and at first floor level a glazed garden room (9.85 x 4.75m).
    Glandwr Mill is approached via a private tarmacadam driveway with black and white Coach House adjacent to a gated entrance. Beyond the gates the drive passes under a portico onto a gravelled courtyard with parking and turning area.

    Against the driveway a series of stone steps and paths lead down to a terraced walled garden with formal lawns and shrub borders fronting the river which runs below an arched stone bridge to the estuary. Wooden bridges provide crossing point over the river to a steeply rising hillside garden containing a magnificent display of rhododendrons, camellias, azaleas, variegated laurel and hydrangeas. Below the hillside garden is a water garden with ornamental pond and fountain incorporating a flagged seating area which catches the morning sun. Behind the Mill House access is gained to an area of mature woodland and an overgrown meadow which includes a potential building plot.
    The river cascades down through the woods and incorporates a series of attractive waterfalls and pools. Fishing rights are included and whilst no records have been kept there are brown trout in the river. The flow of the river is controlled by a man-made weir which feeds the mill race/leat. The Mill Race forms a narrow canal which outfalls into the mill pond behind the former Granary with a diversion serving the turbine /generator which provides a private source of electricity.
    Mains electricity with supplementary private supply. Private water and drainage. Oil central heating. Telephone lines and Broadband are connected.
    From Dolgellau travel west on the A470 towards Bontddu. After Bontddu continue for a further 1 1/2 miles and on a left-hand bend against the estuary is a turning right onto a side lane with bridge crossing over the river leading to Glandwr Mill.
