Farmhouse
This fabulous, mid-18th century, traditional farmhouse commands superb views over Harlech to the sea, over the beautiful Dwyryd Estuary to Portmeirion and over rolling countryside to the mountains of Snowdonia. Standing detached, it is beautifully decorated, double glazed and oil centrally heated throughout. Outside there is a lovely large front garden with patio area and fabulous views. The house is approached to the front or rear via steps. To the rear is a garden with patio area, as well as 2 BBQs and a wood store. The holiday property is approximately 1 mile from Harlech village and castle and is approached via a paved part gravel drive (unsuitable for low riding sports cars or long wheel base vehicles) over farmland, and the nearest neighbour is probably half a mile away.
