Originally built in 1879 for Elizabeth and William Davies JP, Cae’r Blaidd (Field of the Wolf), has had a rich and varied history. Purchased by the present owners in 1995 it has been lovingly restored to its former glory, retaining a wealth of original features. It has been both a family home and provided award-winning Country House accommodation for guests.
The principal reception rooms are accessed from the spacious reception hall, with traditional tiled floor and dog-legged staircase, including the sitting room with three bay windows, a feature stone fireplace with multi-fuel burner, dining room with stunning bay window, wood-panelled ceiling and decorative wooden flooring, drawing room and main kitchen along with the office and a downstairs cloakroom.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room includes two rangemaster cookers, and leads to the utility room/workshop, fuel store (with external door) and larder. The secondary kitchen and cloakroom are located through the main kitchen and drawing room.
On the first floor, four of the six bedrooms benefit from en suite bath or shower rooms, while the remaining two are serviced by both a shower room and a cloakroom. The landing has a beautiful stained glass ceiling feature, of the Moelwyn Mountain range. A seventh bedroom and a large bathroom with stained glass skylight are located on the second floor, along with the sizable games room with fire escape access.
The basement includes an excellent storage space, a fitted drying room and the boiler room.
The property is approached via a Council maintained road, on to the private gated driveway. To the front of the property is a parking area suitable for a number of vehicles. Well-maintained landscaped gardens wrap around the main house and feature established planting and mature trees, as well as an enchanting Arctic Lodge.
The garden is surrounded by open fields and enjoys breathtaking views of the mountains. To the south east of the property lies the former kitchen gardens surrounded by mature woodland which is a haven for wildlife. A stream meanders through the property along the southern boundary.
