A characterful and substantial Edwardian stone country house in a highly regarded estuary location. In 1.31 acres of gardens with coach house and inspiring estuary views

Available for the first time in nearly twenty years this elegant and classic Edwardian stone country house offers period features, deep windows and an attractive loggia with part glazed roof maximising the staggering estuary views. Situated within the hamlet of Taicynhaeaf (translated as Harvest Houses) between Barmouth and Dolgellau, this spacious and well planned home has gracious and flexible accommodation and a further coach house offering immense potential.

The magnificent, extensive and sweeping garden, estuary and mountain views are a major joy of Nant Y Garreg and are a feature from all the reception rooms and bedrooms.

Nant Y Garreg borders the Avon Cwn Mynach river (river of the monk's valley) with the Coed Garth Gell RSPB nature reserve beyond offering superb local walks.

Leading from the wooden porch the front door opens to an inner vestibule with stone flagged floor and feature door and side panels with decorative Art Nouveau stained glass. The large light reception hall has parquet flooring and period panelled doors to all rooms as well as a useful study area, facing the rear, which was previously the butlers pantry. With carved marble fireplace, decorative coved ceiling and deep bay window the charming drawing room is characterful and spacious, ideal for entertaining. The sizable sitting room has an attractive pair of windows opening to the loggia and an inset decorative arch, fitted bookshelves and oak feature fire surround. Featuring a stripped pine floor, deep window and door to both the conservatory and kitchen the dining room offers ample space for a table and chairs and is a key space to entertain in this house. Attractively fitted with shaker style hand painted bespoke cabinetry under granite work surfaces the good sized kitchen has woodland views to the side and a door to the conservatory. There is an integrated hob, oven, fridge and dishwasher as well as space for free standing furniture. Maximising the breath-taking sweeping garden and estuary views the conservatory is ideal for enjoying the sunshine throughout the day.

The utility room, store room, larder and W.C completes the downstairs accommodation.

A wide staircase with hand turned spindles, newel post and hand rail rises to the light flooded landing. The principle bedroom is directly above the drawing room has a wide sash widow with spectacular views and access to the balcony. There are three further double bedrooms, all with ample space for free standing furniture, linen cupboard, two bathrooms and a shower room. All the bathrooms have recently been refitted with white sanitary ware.

A secondary staircase rises to the second floor where there are two rooms. Currently used for storage these could be refurbished and would make ideal guest/nanny/au pair accommodation.

Coach House Detached from the house the coach house offers immense potential to be converted into ancillary accommodation ideal for guests, relatives, staff, a large home office or utilised as Air BnB.

Gardens The established mature private gardens and grounds extend to 1.31 acres and are an outstanding feature of Nant Y Garreg and complement the estuary setting very well with their maturity. To one side they border the Avon Cwn Mynach river and views to the Coed Garth Gell RSPB nature reserve.

In the late 1980s the gardens were extensively landscaped and have matured to an horticultural oasis featuring azaleas, rhododendrons, acers, camellias and magnolias. There is a wide gravelled terrace, with loggia with part glazed roof, that connects the house to the gardens and offers alfresco seating and dining areas that embraces the vast estuary and mountain views. A winding path with steps leads through the wild woodland bank down to the river. To the rear garden paths lead around deeply planted borders with a further lawn and seating areas.

Nant Y Garreg is accessed via a gated gravel driveway that sweeps along the back of the house to the coach house where there is parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the front and back doors of the house.


The ancient market town of Dolgellau sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty set in the southern Snowdonia National Park at the foot of the Cader Idris mountain range. A delightful riverside walk offers easy access into the town which provides a small cottage hospital, primary and secondary schooling, a tertiary college, a good selection of pubs and restaurants, shops, a library and rugby and cricket clubs. The house is ideally located as a rural retreat and for those who love a variety of outdoor pursuits including walking, climbing, fishing and bird watching. For water sport enthusiasts, the property is an easy drive to Barmouth with its stunning beaches and sheltered harbours overlooking Cardigan Bay.
