A converted School House with glorious views across the Dovey Estuary.

The property The Old School House is an attractive Victorian property standing in an elevated position with awe-inspiring southerly views across the beautiful Dovey Estuary. Originally the village school, it underwent an award winning conversion in 1990’s to create the elegant family home it is today with light and versatile living space that opens to a wide south facing terrace.

The house has great character with Gothic windows, oak floors, doors and staircase along with striking fireplaces. To the front is the garden room with a feature inset fireplace from where French doors open into the bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room and adjoining dining room. The dining room has steps leading up to a galleried area with display alcoves and double doors open to the elegant drawing room with an Adams style fireplace and deep Gothic windows.

The staircase leads up to a central landing off which are four individually styled bedrooms and a family bathroom. The large master and guest bedrooms both have en suite shower rooms, fitted cupboards and deep windows framing the views.


Outside The house is approached off a pedestrian walkway to a paved lower terrace with stores built into the hillside, ideal for watersports equipment. Steps lead up to the main paved terrace to the front of the house giving a superb outdoor living space for alfresco dining and sitting. A pathway and steps lead around the side of the house to the rear garden, which extends up the slope behind and has been cleared for planting to the new owners taste


Location The Old School House stands above the pretty harbour in the exclusive seaside village of Aberdovey. It benefits from stunning views of the ever-changing tidal scenery, revealing beautiful golden sand banks of the Dyfi Estuary and the hills beyond. ? The house is close to a range of bespoke shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. Historically a small fishing and trading village, the advent of the railway in the 19th Century saw Aberdovey become an exclusive Victorian holiday destination noted for its exceptional views and fine beach. Today it has retained its exclusivity and is noted for its famous 18 hole golf course, its colourful summer sailing regattas, water sports and its easy access to many outdoor activities in the Snowdonia National Park.? The towns of Tywyn and Machynlleth are nearby and offer a further range of recreational and leisure facilities. Good road networks give access to Welshpool, Shrewsbury and beyond. The village has two stations with a regular rail service to Shrewsbury and Birmingham.


Directions From Machynlleth, follow the A493 to Aberdovey (approximately 9 miles). Upon reaching the village, proceed under the railway bridges and continue along the sea front. The walkway up to The Old School House can be found opposite Bath Place, a terrace of yellow, blue and white houses just before the Literary Institute. Walk up the pathway and the gate into Old School House will be found on the right.
