Ffynnonau comprises a superb traditional farmhouse that has been sympathetically extended and refurbished by the current owners. Now providing substantial accommodation to make the most of its elevated position and views.
A large barn has been successfully converted to provide a terrace of 3 two storey cottages. Each offers a wealth of character, with oak floors, exposed beams and stonework. The living area of each is on the first floor, giving superb views across the valley and estuary; sleeping accommodation is on the ground floor. They all have fitted kitchens and both oil central heating and a wood burning stove. Each cottage has its own external seating area with barbeque in the landscaped gardens.
The owners have part completed (up to 1st fix stage) a fourth substantial 3 bedroom cottage that is located to the rear of the 3 existing cottages. We have been informed by the owners that all cottages have planning consent for full time residential use. The terrace of 3 cottages have been used as successful holiday lets in the past and were rated 5 stars by the then Welsh Tourist Board.
The Farmhouse Ground floor
An attractive entrance porch and entrance hall leads through to a large drawing room with wood floors and fireplace with a wood burning stove providing a warm focal point. French doors lead off to a delightful sun room with dramatic full height windows to enjoy the vista across the estuary. A French door leads off this to the front garden. To the right of the drawing room is a useful sitting room that the owners currently use as a home office/ study. This has an ornate fireplace and French doors that open out to a peaceful patio area.
To the rear of the property is a spacious kitchen breakfast room with quarry tiled floor, bespoke fitted units, integrated appliances, Belfast sink and a warm Aga taking centre stage. To the left is a snug sitting area with French doors to the side garden. A door to the right of the kitchen leads through to a large and extremely useful utility room. The ground floor is completed by cloakroom with shower area and a boot room with door to outside.
The staircase rises from the drawing room to the first floor accommodation that includes an impressive master suite with wood floors, vaulted ceiling with exposed roof timbers and eye-catching full height windows overlooking the estuary. A generous walk-in dressing room lies off with an adjacent en suite shower room. The master suite is completed by French doors that lead off to a breathtaking roof terrace with glass balustrade to enjoy the views while relaxing.
The remainder of the first floor comprises 3 further bedrooms, one with French doors opening out onto a Juliet balcony. These bedrooms share the use of a sumptuous bathroom suite with a relaxing roll top bath.

Part completed cottage
