Brook House, Llanaber Road, Barmouth, LL42 1YG
4 bedroom detached house for sale
A sheltered charming property within easy walk from Barmouth. South west facing, this 4/5 bedroom detached house has attractive mature gardens, including a lawned area, slate paths, and a generous outside terrace. This is the perfect hideaway in easy reach of the town with holiday let potential.
This sheltered property is the perfect hideaway within a few minutes walk of Barmouth town and beach. Brook House is accessed via a gated private driveway. Accommodation is spacious, with an open plan lounge/dining room and large kitchen diner stretching the length of the house. This is mirrored by a significant terraced area facing South West. There is potential for B&B or self-contained accommodation on the first floor, which has a separate kitchen and entrance.
The garden has been laid with local slate paved paths and is planted with shrubs, borders and trees which are now mature and easily maintained. The sheltered and sunny position allows many sub-tropical species to flourish and the garden straddles a brook with bridges from one side to another. There is plenty of outside storage including double garage, separate workshop, garden store, garden shed and two summer houses.
Brook House was built circa 1972 and has been extended and improved to a high standard. Construction is of cavity brick with rendered and painted elevations under a slated roof. The hardwood windows are all fitted with 'K' glass of very high specification which filters sunlight and reflects heat internally. The insulation qualities of the house are high, and the fuel costs correspondingly low. The accommodation is very spacious and well laid out, and the decorations, which are a feature of the house, are quite bold yet very effective. The built-in wardrobes are all by Hammonds.
