From the main road a gated entrance leads into a wide gravelled parking area with approximately 8 spaces with several seating spots, well placed to enjoy the fabulous views.
The drive leads down to the rear of the property where there is a slate paved seating area with attractive planted borders.
The land then extends to the western side of the property where there is a hen coop and dilapidated former cottage (approximately the same size as Brynhyfryd). Known as Bryntirion this building offers scope for redevelopment to create an annex to the property or a self contained holiday cottage.
Various paths lead up through the garden into the woodlands which measure approximately 10 acres (subject to survey) and have several vantage points to enjoy the views across the Mawddach estuary and over to Barmouth, not to mention a pond and even a cave!
The unspoilt woodlands are frequented by badgers, owls, squirrels, foxes, a variety of bird life and even the rare pine martin. They are also home to some rare lichen and mosses. With the ever rising fuel costs this forest could provide its new owners with a supply of firewood for many, many years to come!
Believed to have been planted by a gardener from Bodnant Gardens the array of flowers in this garden are truly spectacular and include rhododendrons, azaleas, guneara and other flowering shrubs.
To safeguard the fabulous views this property also owns an area of land on the opposite side of the road.
Attached to the side of the kitchen this useful utility room has space and plumbing for automatic washing machine and tumble dryer with power and lighting points. A store cupboard and wide open log store are also attached to the side.
