Sitting in an elevated position, this idyllic property is surrounded by rolling hills, woodland, streams, and an abundance of wildlife.

Sellers Insight - "I was first attracted by the tranquillity of the area and the homely and welcoming feel of the property," says the current owner of Arllwyn. "The house is set back in its own woodland with far-reaching views over the mountains and the local village. Leaving here, I will really miss the peace and quiet. There is no noise or light pollution, so on a clear night, the stars are spectacular."

"The house itself is warm and cosy," the owner continues, "with a welcoming sense of calm. I thoroughly enjoy sitting in front of the wood burners on a winter's evening, or at the kitchen table with the warmth of the stove and a beautiful view over the countryside. The sitting room is calm and relaxing and has an amazing view of the garden and the many birds that visit. It's a real sun trap in the morning and a perfect place to start the day. Meanwhile, my office on the top floor is spacious and bright - again with a beautiful view of the countryside and the stream that runs all the way from the spectacular Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall."

"Outside, the garden is wonderful, too," says the owner. "It offers the best of all aspects, being easy to maintain; a real sun-trap; and a magnet for the local birds and wildlife. Along with a lawned area and well-stocked borders, there is an orchard, vegetable patch and woodland. Plus, just beyond the bounds of the property at the end of Waterfall Street is Pistyll Rhaeadr, the tallest waterfall in Wales, which offers fantastic walks and spectacular views. There are many walks and cycle paths in the area to explore and some great pubs both within the local and surrounding villages."

The location of the property also has much to offer in terms of both community and convenience. "The village is superb," the owner says. "It has a fantastic sense of community, and the people are always kind and friendly. There is everything you need: two shops that stay open until late, a butcher, a newsagent, two pubs and a post office - all within a 5-minute walk of the house. There is a local school with a great reputation and the town is well serviced by local buses."
