You'll simply be bowled over by the remarkable position and superlative views from Groeslon Uchaf, however you'll be just as equally impressed by the accommodation which has seen many, many changes – indeed, it's been transformed into what can only be described as the perfect home on the hill.

This splendid detached residence, which has no peers in terms of elevation in the immediate vicinity, facilitates exceptional panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, taking in the impressive Snowdon Massif – watch the train all the way to its summit - right the way down to the sea at Caernarfon Bay (with a hint of Caernarfon castle) and on a clear day, even the Isle of Man – this is most definitely a home with a difference!

The property stands within its own generous plot of well thought out garden grounds that extends to all sides, having been purposely designed for minimal maintenance whilst being practical in terms of parking, of which there is ample space, with useful additions to include a cattle grid on the approach (useful for deterring local stray inhabitants – sheep, that is!) and courtesy lighting to guide you to the doorstep at night. The icing on the cake is arguably the tiered patio to the rear which houses on the uppermost level, a hot tub (to be sold by separate negotiation) which provides complete privacy whilst positioned to enjoy the dramatic surroundings – and just imagine the opportunity to enjoy this facility whilst gazing up at the stars on a clear night.

So let's just elaborate a little on what has happened to Groeslon Uchaf during the recent past. Originally a traditional two storey stone built dwelling, the property has been extensively enlarged with an additional two storey extension whilst the original section has been renovated and updated to match the newer parts.

Additionally, a former lean-to outbuilding has also been renovated and incorporated to function as an excellent games room complete with Wc and utility facilities – a great room that even has remote controlled skylights for your convenience.

The interior of the main dwelling is like new as you would expect from a complete renovation and offers a contemporary living experience with a little hint of the original dwellings charm, with thick walls and a lovely brick fireplace that houses a wood burning stove located within the family room.

The entire ground floor comes with under-floor heating (conventional radiators to the first floor), the kitchen features a host of built-in appliances and the living room has patio doors opening to the southern elevation onto a patio, a provision for the enjoyment of those fabulous views of course.

There a three bedrooms to the first floor, the master enjoying en-suite facilities, there are TV points to all rooms, oak internal doors and bathroom facilities feature clean modern suites. All windows and doors are modern uPVC units and heating is taken care of by oil fired means.

The property is situated on the periphery of the rural community of Dinorwig on the lower slopes of Elidir Fach, some 1,100 feet above sea level with the most spectacular views of Snowdon, the surrounding foothills, the Llanberis Pass and all the way down to the sea at Caernarfon Bay – quite simply stunning! The nearest local amenities can be found in the neighbouring village of Deiniolen which provides a village store, post office, primary school and public house whilst a petrol filling station is also conveniently positioned on the edge of the village.

The Royal town of Caernarfon as well as Bangor (the City Of Learning) with its colleges and university are both easily accessed via the excellent road networks in the vicinity and offer a comprehensive range of shops, goods and services. The main A55 expressway which skirts the North Wales coastline right to the ferry port at Holyhead, is also easily accessed from here, making direct connections with the main motorway network, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.

Situated close to the mountainous region of Snowdonia, this is a perfect playground for walkers and climbers alike, with outdoor leisure facilities practically on your doorstep, not to mention such highlights such Zipworld in neighbouring Penrhyn quarry, mountain bike trails and some of the best scenery you could wish for.

From our Caernarfon office, follow the A4086 in the direction of Llanberis. After passing Cwm-y-Glo, turn left onto the A4244 signposted for Bangor. Continue on this road, turning right where signposted for Deiniolen (1 mile). Proceed through the village and continue through Gallt Y Foel and up the hill towards Dinorwig. Continue past the turning on your right for Fachwen and after approximately 200 yards, turn sharp left and continue to where the road levels taking the turning on your right by Sardis Chapel. Follow the lane for a short distance where you will find the property set back from the road on your left hand side, the second property along.
