Beautiful and Elegant Large Riverside House | Gwynfryn
Located in a small hamlet on the banks of the River Artro, Gwynfryn is a beautiful and elegant large riverside house perfect for a North Wales break. Sleeping ten, this five bedroom three storey property has a classic and luxurious feel, in keeping with the age of the building. The stunning double fronted house has a wow factor both inside and out, and is ideal for large families or a group of friends.
The ground floor layout is on a number of split levels with steps in and out of some rooms and spaces. Entering through the main front door, the hallway allows access to two reception rooms, one either side. To the left, three steps lead down into the formal lounge area of Gwynfryn. There's a wonderful sense of elegance in this room. Cream coloured panelled walls contrast with the darker panelled high ceiling, including a beautiful and decorative chandelier hanging from the centre. Cast iron radiators and plush red velvet sofas add to the tone and antique furniture is dotted around, including a large central chest and an ornate side table. The old fireplace now features a log burner and a TV is mounted above. Brass fixtures and fittings are featured and a large brass mirrors and old prints line the walls. It's a charming and comfortable room. On the opposite side of the hallway, a more casual lounge area has a modern feel. The bright yellow chesterfield fabric sofa stands out against the blue walls, and two leather side chairs add further seating. More antique furniture is dotted around, and the tall fireplace also includes a cosy log burner. This room would be an ideal spot to snuggle up with a good book and a glass of wine in the evening.
To the rear of the property, a kitchen diner is also set on two levels, with a couple of steps up to the kitchen from the dining area. Beautiful original slate tiled flooring is laid throughout the space, and the dining area is bright and airy with a set of glazed double doors allowing in light. An extendable wooden dining table is located centrally with additional shelving and cupboards dotted around. The kitchen space is modern and sleek, but retaining plenty of character. With a u shaped layout, an island style counter separates both spaces with an inbuilt electric oven and hob. With a pattered tiled splashback and rustic wooden shelves on the walls, the kitchen has ample workspace and storage space for self-catering.
Stairs from the dining area lead up to the first floor of this beautiful and elegant large riverside house, featuring three double bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. Whilst all double rooms retain a classic feel, they all bring their own character with differing touches. The smaller of the three doubles is a cosy space, with a wooden framed bed flanked by two antique French style bedside cabinets. A cast iron fireplace with wooden mantle sits centrally on the external wall with a large chest of drawers for storage. The two larger rooms feature beautifully upholstered grey sleigh bedframes, antique style furniture, cast iron and marble fireplaces and side chairs. These rooms have a classic Victorian feel with coved ceilings, chandeliers and sash windows.
The bathroom on the first floor is beautiful. With wood flooring, subtle green tones to the walls and soft lighting, the focal point of the room is a stunning freestanding roll top bath, sitting next to a fireplace and window with a window seat. After a long day out exploring the area, this bathroom is the must visit spot for a relaxing soak, and some 'me' time. Across the landing, a bright room with blue tiles to the floor includes a walk in shower cubicle and sink unit with storage under.
Taking the stairs to the second floor leads to the final rooms in Gwynfryn. The layout of the top floor includes two twin bedrooms, a bathroom, shower room and separate cloakroom. It goes without saying, the bedrooms on this floor are also in-keeping with the style of the remainder of the property. With both rooms having metal framed beds, one room finished in black and the other in white, there are distinct styles. The darker room retains a more classic feel with antique furniture, brass framed wall prints and a dark cast iron fireplace. In contrast, the second room is more bright and airy, with a pastel blue printed feature wall and soft furnishings. The bathroom on the second floor includes a jacuzzi tub in the corner, alongside a basin and WC, where the shower room once again features a walk in cubicle and basin.
