Seller Insight The Old Rectory and The Old Church House form a unique property that occupies a picturesque location in the village of Llangynog, which is located in the beautiful Tanat valley. The main house and separate cottage sit in a third of an acre of grounds and enjoy open views of the surrounding countryside and magnificent Berwyn Mountains. Said the owner of The Old Church House: “My godmother lived in the village and it was while on holiday that we fell completely in love with the place. As soon as you open the car door you can smell the sweet air, and the views are inspiring. The valley is known as a ‘thin’ place, where heaven and earth meet.” Father and son owners, Trevor and Bruce, noted that “The property was purchased twenty-three years ago. We have modernised both properties, but in a sympathetic manner to their traditional, stone construction. The electrics comply fully with the latest standards, double-glazing is fitted throughout, the wood burners are incredibly efficient and the décor reflects the natural light. Both the main house and the cottage stand alone, but we’d say that their sum is far greater that the two parts. The Old Rectory is a very happy, family home and the cottage provides versatility. For example it could be used for relatives, to generate an income from short or long term rental, or as an inspirational office.” “It is the spectacular location that truly sets this property apart,” they continue. “The buildings are enveloped by a third of an acre of very well maintained and beautifully landscaped grounds, and the whole property is surrounded by open fields and mountains beyond. Totally unspoilt, it has enabled two generations of children to grow up outside in the fresh air. We would go hill walking, mountain biking or go across to the quarry, light a fire and cook sausages under the stars. The location is idyllic.” “Over and above the beautiful surroundings this is a place with so much to offer,” say the owners. “Across the valley we have a world-class mountain biking centre, we’ve been able to go white water rafting at Lake Bala, the village has two pubs and the restaurant and facilities at the nearby Lake Vyrnwy Hotel are excellent. Living here has afforded us all a fabulous quality of life.” “This is a place quite unlike any other and the house has been such a happy home but the time has come for someone else to enjoy all it has to offer,” says the owners. “We’ll be sad to let it go but we’ll take away some fabulous memories.” * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
