A picturesque location is where this superb Detached Former Sawmill Conversion resides, a riverside setting surrounded by some 1½ Acres of mixed mature woodland within the Vale of Ffestiniog, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. This is undoubtedly a unique opportunity, a special place to enjoy a taste of what life would have been like during the 19th century when working mills produced materials which would go on to adorn many a home within the locality. The accommodation as you would expect, offers much charm and character as befits this historic property and is extremely spacious to say the least. The open plan layout to the ground floor is purposely zoned to create living areas we can all relate to, and there are 2 multi-fuel stoves at either end that you can gravitate to depending on your mood. Tri-folding doors open to a seating area where you can sit back and take in the sights and sounds of your surroundings. All bedrooms reside on the first floor with the main bedroom benefiting from an en-suite and large window which overlooks the wooded valley floor. The accommodation briefly comprises: Open Plan Living with Lounge, Dining Area/Study and Kitchen, Landing, 3 Bedrooms, En-suite, Bathroom and Mezzanine level. The Mezzanine does not have dedicated access (used for storage) but could benefit from a spiral staircase (subject to planning consents and approval). Internal viewing is considered essential to fully appreciate.

LOCATION Y Felin Lifio resides within Tan Y Bwlch on the main A487 in the beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog, right in the heart of Snowdonia and lying some 3 miles west of the village of Penrhyndeudraeth. The property is ideally positioned for Porthmadog, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Dolgellau, in fact the entire Snowdonia Park and striking coastline is practically on your doorstep. Penrhyndeudraeth offers a number of useful daily amenities, some of which have traded here for many years and there are regular bus services as well as a mainline railway station providing all the necessary links. Penrhyndeudraeth is also a neighbour to the celebrated Italianate folly village of Portmeirion, famous as the host for the 1960's 'Prisoner' TV series, built by Clough Williams-Ellis. Porthmadog lies 3 miles further, offering major supermarkets and many independent shops, goods and services. The harbour has a thriving yacht and rowing club and a picturesque marina adjacent to which is the terminal of both the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways.
