Situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Llanrhaeadr ym Mochant is Arllwyn a stunning 1900's detached Welsh stone house. Sitting in an elevated position, this idyllic property is surrounded by rolling hills, woodland, streams, and an abundance of wildlife. Arllwyn sits on approximately a 1.73-acre plot comprising of a tiered garden, vegetable plot, orchard, and woodland. The property oozes charm and was last available to the market twenty years ago. It has been a much-loved family home for the current owners, who are now looking to downsize. The exterior is made of the original stone, with beautiful wooden sash windows enabling light, bright and airy rooms. The property comprises two reception rooms, a country cottage-style kitchen, a large boot room/utility (this space could easily make a third reception or help to extend the kitchen), and a downstairs cloakroom.

On the second floor there is another generous double and a smaller room which the current owners use as a craft/art room but once again could lend itself to an ensuite or study.

In essence, the gardens and woodland are a quirky, charming space, perfect for nature lovers.Arllwyn is a very exciting proposition and makes for a wonderful family home. Viewings are highly recommended.Owners Comments - "We were first attracted to the village because it offered bilingual education for our son and was within easy reach of Shrewsbury where we both worked at the time. Arllwyn itself is a solid, spacious, south-facing house, both private but in the village. Surrounded by space and nature and dark starry skies, we could immediately see great potential for a productive garden and creating our own little nature reserve here."Since then, Arllwyn has been a happy home to the owners for nearly 20 years. "The roomy three-storey house, with its sunny aspect, associated woodland, orchard and lawn has made it a fantastic family home," they say. "The rooms are airy but cosy in the winter and as lovers of the outdoors the way the front garden links to the house is really important to us. We have taken great care to maintain the house and land to the highest standards, and our shared interests in conservation and sustainability have led us to create wildflower meadows, a wildlife pond and to manage the bluebell woodland to support a wide range of birds and flowers. We also have developed an orchard and vegetable gardens with a greenhouse. Our land is also home to four pretty hens and honey bees! We supply our own logs and charcoal from the wood.""Outside the house is a sheltered, sunny lawn," the owners continue, "ideal for eating outside and entertaining. At night one can sit around the fire bowl and marvel at the dark sky and look for shooting stars. We shall miss our early tea on the doorstep listening to the birds, and our glass of wine watching the sun go down over the Berwyn. We have even enjoyed staycations by camping on the lawn, orchard and wood!"The location of the property has much to offer, too. "Set in a picturesque location, the village has a wide range of shops, pubs, a post office, a dentist and surgery. Most importantly it has a friendly and thriving community spirit. The market towns of Oswestry and Welshpool, with their mainline train connections across the country, are within easy reach. To the west lie the mountains of Snowdonia and the stunning coastline, although a range of beautiful and varied walks are available right outside the door.""We all agree that the top floor is our favourite part of the house. The large room has served as a huge playroom when our son was small, then turned into a place for table tennis, darts, etc. Now it has been smartened up to make an inspirational office space but with room to relax, listen to vinyl and use the exercise bike. The west-facing window looks out above the trees towards the waterfall and the sun shines in the late afternoon. The smaller room is a peaceful place for art and craft projects.""We will all be sad to leave this beautiful house and the good neighbours and friends we have made here. It has been our family home and we have many happy memories of times spent here. We will miss everything really, but the wood, the orchard and birdsong will be hard to replace, especially on a summer evening with the swifts screeching overhead or the Red Kites circling above. Our hearts are in nature and we are proud to leave this piece of land richer and more diverse than we found it.""We had a wonderful party in the garden in 2018 - it lasted all weekend starting with afternoon tea, followed by an evening party and then coffee and lunch on the Sunday. We had a gazebo outside and fire bowl. The weather was kind to us and it was a truly magical weekend with over 50 friends joining us.""Perched on the edge of the village, the location of the property is secluded but convenient and allows us to be very included in village life.Note: There is a public right of way along the driveway onto a path in the woodland and over into the field behind....Read full description
