A commanding opportunity!
Situated close to the heart of Criccieth on Y Maes is this delightful semi-detached residence. It offers commanding views across to the castle and yet enjoys privacy. The property offers both a large family home with a holiday cottage to the rear. The quality of both parts is impressive, and the main home has some lovely touches and original features. The property itself is part of the history of the village having been at one time the local doctor’s residence and workplace. As would be expected from the time the property was built all of the rooms have proportions that are rare in more modern homes. The building is set across four floors, with a cellar offering some useful storage. It is well worth taking some time to view this to full appreciate your next move!
One enters the main property through an impressive front door into a spacious entrance hall with rooms off to either side and a staircase leading to the first floor. To the left is the formal lounge (5.9m x 4.5m) which enjoys the views from a bay window across the front privacy hedge towards Criccieth Castle. The room is well appointed and tastefully decorated and sets the scene for the rest of the property.
Across the hallway is the formal dining room (5.6m x 3.5m) which lends itself large family gatherings and has a large picture window to the front. Further to the rear of the property is an incredibly well-appointed kitchen (3.8m x 3.0m) with tasteful light-coloured units and dark co-ordinated work surfaces. An enamel sink with chrome mixer tap is in keeping with the style and cooking is done on a large gas and electric range which is built into its own recess. There are ceiling downlighters and a tile floor. An open arch with stone walls leads to the pleasant sun lounge which is found to the rear of the property.
An under the stair’s doorway leads to the cellar, which is currently used for storage. Beyond the stairs is access to the utility room and a ground floor WC. A secure door then provides access through to the cottage.
Staying in the main property, walking up the first flight of stairs one is impressed by the stained-glass doors to both the first floor separate WC and to the very useful linen cupboard both before arriving on the main landing. The master bedroom (5.8m x 4.0m) is situated to the front and enjoys the views through the bay window into Criccieth and onto the castle and beyond. The master also has a well-appointed en-suite shower room with a classic suite comprising a low-level WC and a pedestal wash basin, step in shower cubicle. The first floor has two further double bedrooms (3.4m x 3.5m & 3.9m x 3.2m), and a well-appointed and large family bathroom which features a classic style suite with a high-level WC, pedestal wash basin and a free-standing bath.
A 180-degree sweeping staircase carries you to the second floor, this has immediately in front of you a storage room. There are three more double bedrooms (5.4m x 3.1m & 3.6m x 3.5m & 3.4m x 2.9m) and a further family size bathroom with a modern suite including a low-level WC and a pedestal wash basin, step in double width shower cubicle.
The cottage has historically been a favoured retreat for many families and has proved its worth as an investment over many years. It has a very useful and well-appointed kitchen / dining room (4.5m x 3.9m) which includes white modern units with a co-ordinated grey work surface. Space for several appliances. Adjacent is a spacious lounge (4.5m x 3.0m) with the storage room as well as access to the garden. From the stairs on the first floor are three bedrooms which could be classified as a double and two singles. There is a modern shower room with a low-level WC, pedestal wash basin and a step-in shower cubicle.
Externally the property sits in private grounds which have been well kept. The front of the property is screened very nicely from the green by a high hedge which at the same time does not restrict the views across to the castle. There is plenty of parking to the front and side of the property. The rear garden has a variety of small and medium sized trees and an added bonus to the far end of the garden is a semi-detached garage building which could be converted and utilised for a variety of uses.
