Let us first discover the main house of Parc Y Bryn.
This Edwardian period, detached family home will impress you with its magnificent stature constructed of red brick, mammoth double glazed sash windows to front topped with twin gables. The home has been lovingly (with much attention to detail) restored and designed to enhance the huge amount of character present. You will first set eyes on the home as you turn into the gated entrance and sweep around the long private driveway. You will find ample parking for at least 12 vehicles.
As you make your way to the main entrance doorway you will notice the ornate, period porch structure which embraces you and provides sanctuary for you to turn and stand in ore of the fabulous views.
You will enter into a vestibule with red quarry tile floor and then straight into the grand hallway which shows off so many wonderful details such as the high ceilings, beautifully tall skirting, architraves, coving and an ornate archway.
You have the two main reception rooms to the front, the lounge and dining room. Both rooms are of great proportions, have fabulous double glazed sash bay windows, picture rails, fireplaces and the dining room has original units built into the recesses. The windows and the tall ceilings contribute wonderfully to create naturally bright rooms. The lounge houses a wood/multi-fuel burner and the dining room has an electric wood burner effect fire. Both of these exuberant rooms have views over the River Towy to enjoy when either relaxing by the fire or entertaining family and friends.
We make our way down the red quarry tiled inner hallway to arrive at the sitting room. The sitting room is another naturally bright room thanks to the tall ceilings and the double French doors leading through to the sun room. The sitting room has the characterful original units built into recess and a stunning Austroflamm G1 wood burner.
We naturally enter the sun room next, a beautifully sunny room with copious amounts of windows which frame the surrounding gardens and countryside views. The sun room has a rustic natural stone floor and part pine, part glass vaulted ceiling. A beautiful room which more than adequately brings the outside in.
A very handy utility and WC room sits off the sun room. The utility has plumbing for a washing machine and space for fridge/freezer and tumble dryer. The WC consists of a low level WC and wash basin.
We can now explore the kitchen which has been designed to create a beautiful mix between original characterful features and modern kitchen qualities.
The distinctive red quarry tile floor is present here alongside the high ceiling and tall skirtings, you also have the wow factor feature of a traditional style Esse cast iron range cooker set into a tiled recess. The Esse is oil fuelled and provides central heating and hot water for the home.
The kitchen consists of an abundance of modern, shaker style oak base and eye level units topped with a quartz worktop. You have a traditional Belfast sink, integrated fridge, dishwasher, electric Bosch oven, and a built-in Indesit electric hob with extractor over. The kitchen is lovely and bright as it has a sash window to the rear peering into the sun room and looking over the garden.
There is also a very handy pantry store leading off the kitchen, which has a double glazed sash window to the side, fitted painted oak base and wall units with a quartz work top surface over and a wine storage unit.
We can now ascend to the first floor via the beautiful staircase which is crafted from a very pleasing pitch pine with stunning hardwood newel post and handrail. Your journey to the spacious landing will be a bright one due to the double glazed sash window as you make your way up the stairs. The first floor has the same characterful qualities seen downstairs such as original high skirting boards, architraves and doors.
The first floor houses a total of four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
There are two large double bedrooms to the front which have mammoth double glazed sash windows to front providing fabulous views across the River Towy and Llansteffan Castle.
You have a further double bedroom to the rear of the property which has countryside views, and a forth bedroom which would be a perfect nursery, dressing room or study. The forth bedroom has both countryside and River Towy views.
The family bathroom is an idyllic and modern space to relax. You have giant natural effect tiles on the floor and wall, freestanding roll top bath, mammoth walk in shower, chrome shower rail, wash basin and WC.
You also have a double glazed sash window framing the most wonderful countryside views to enjoy whilst relaxing in the bath or taking a shower.
We have been advised that there is ample space and roof height in the loft to create further accommodation with some electricity and lighting already installed. There are two Velux top opening windows, one electronic remote control Velux window and two dormer roof gables which have two double glazed tilt and turn windows both with far reaching views.
We can now explore Parc Y Bryn Lodge, which is a beautifully renovated brick coach-house and stable. The Lodge is very aesthetically pleasing with a mix externally of red brick, wooden cladding, cream render and slate roof twinned with a countryside backdrop.
We are advised it is currently used as a five star holiday let which we understand has excellent reviews, ratings and income potential. The Lodge is heated via an independent Worcester Bosch combination boiler and benefits from a wireless Wi-Fi connection.
The accommodation of the Lodge is set over two floors, the ground floor has a fantastic open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. You enter the Lodge via a porch that leads directly into the living space, which is a fantastic size and has a beautiful pine floor and exposed beams creating a rustic feel. The main lounge area has ample room for seating and dining. There are sizeable windows to the front allowing light to flood in and a wood burner tucked in the corner set upon a brick and slate plinth.
The kitchen is made up of modern cream gloss units, granite effect worktop, ceramic sink and coordinated white and black tiled splash back. The integrated appliances include Indesit oven, electric hob, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and Moffat extractor.
In addition to the front entrance, you also have a rear door leading to the lower courtyard which then leads to the upper garden.
Ascending to the first floor via the pine staircase, you will find three bedrooms behind their oak entrance doors.
The master is a lovely double room with exposed beams, wooden cladded ceiling and double glazed French doors leading to a private, wow factor elevated decking area. The decked area has the most fabulous countryside surroundings and views, just imagine having outdoor lounge furniture out here and enjoying your first coffee of the day heaven!
There are two further bedrooms which are currently set up as twin rooms, both have wooden cladded ceilings and either countryside or River Towy views.
As you enter through the oak door to the family bathroom you will appreciate its size and modern suite. Here we have ceramic tiles on the floor and walls with a wooden cladded ceiling, P shaped bath with Aqualisa shower over, wash basin, WC and chrome heated towel rail. The bathroom also has a Velux window creating a lovely bright space.
The grounds of the Lodge consist of a mix of a quaint ground level courtyard which is laid with limestone chippings, outside porcelain Belfast sink and tap and a wooden staircase leading to the upper garden. The upper garden is mainly laid to lawn, but also has a patio area with a picnic bench and a storage shed.
Adjoining the lodge is a workshop with a range of wall and base units with Belfast sink unit, plumbed for a washing machine, electricity, lighting and with two windows to the front. To the side of the workshop is a sizeable log storage shed.
You will also have your very own Micro Brewery at Parc Y Bryn. The Micro Brewery is equipped with electricity, lighting, floor drainage, plumbing for two sink units, three double glazed windows and radiator. The building has the relevant planning and HMRC permissions and a grade 5 food hygiene rating, however this room lends itself to a wide variety of uses.
Externally, the properties are approached via a private sweeping driveway and sit in approximately 0.75 of an acre. The established gardens and grounds surrounding the residence and outbuildings, provide a delightful, spacious setting, being mainly laid to manicured lawns interspersed with a variety of mature trees and specimen shrubs, including colourful azaleas, camellia, hydrangeas and herbaceous borders. You also have a choice of patio and seating areas, one of which is a sunken semi-circle patio with water feature and spectacular views.
There are a range of garden outbuildings, chicken coop, raised vegetables beds, greenhouse and a productive orchard area at the rear.
The grounds have useful external lighting, waterproof sockets and water supplies.
The gardens and grounds of Parc Y Bryn are just wonderful, with equally as wonderful surroundings, countryside views and River Towy views. I would imagine there would be many, many happy memories to be made here.
