Bedroom two is of a double proportion with fitted wardrobe and windows looking out over the view. Bedroom three, although slightly smaller in proportion, does have an en-suite shower with two aspect windows.

Overall the accommodation is beautifully presented and has been greatly improved by the current owners.

The Gardens

The gardens surrounding Ty Gwyn are a joy to behold and no amount of pictures will do it justice. Stepping out from the residence onto the rear terrace and seeing the gardens open up in front of you is something quite special. This is a garden full of colour and a garden for all seasons.

A variety of paths wind their way around the grounds providing access into different havens and sanctuaries and lead onto the former railway line, which has been created into an Italianate garden with a wide range of features and specimen shrubs completing this enchanting area. The garden has been designed in such a way that it is relatively easily maintained with a large majority of perennial plants and evergreens. A particular feature of the garden is the running water, small pond area and timber bridge.

Viewers will also notice a range of timber sculptures that feature through the garden that have been carved by a well-known local artist. The garden has been well designed and will provide the new owners hours of enjoyment and relaxation therapy. This is one of the most magnificent gardens to come on to the market.
