Bryn Afon presents a unique opportunity to own a piece of history, meticulously configured to offer contemporary living.

The Enchanting Interiors
The breakfast room features a 16-pane double-glazed window overlooking the front elevation. A charming fireplace with a red-tiled surround adds warmth and character. Exposed brickwork continues onto a large archway, seamlessly connecting to the open kitchen.

The kitchen exudes a quintessential country charm. Bespoke timber-painted cupboards with ornate hinges and an English dresser create a one-of-a-kind feel. The centrepiece is a captivating inglenook housing a modern electric Rangemaster. Natural and white painted stone walls complement the exposed chunky beams adorning both ceiling and walls. Completing the picture, a quarry-tiled floor flows seamlessly with the slate work surfaces. A large timber door grants access to the rear garden, while another leads to an inner hall with connections to the utility room, staircase, and a further hallway with access to a second staircase and lounge/dining room.

Functional Space with Courtyard Charm
The utility room provides ample storage with floor cupboards, a Belfast sink, and a WC. A window offers a glimpse of the charming courtyard garden.

Living and Dining in Style
The lounge embodies a sense of grandeur, yet remains incredibly inviting. A large inglenook with a stone back and brick bottom takes center stage, housing a multi-fuel stove. Quarry tiled flooring seamlessly flows into the living area, defined by timber beams separating it from the dining space. Exposed beams grace the ceiling and walls, adding further character. A beautiful 16-pane double-glazed window with window bars graces the front aspect, bathing the room in natural light.

The dining area, open yet clearly defined by timber beams, boasts original wooden flooring. A stone fireplace with an open fire and window overlooking the rear garden creates a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Ascending to Tranquil Quarters
A staircase from the hallway leads to an open landing with a skylight, where beams adorn both ceiling and walls. The bathroom, reminiscent of a French chic hotel, features a freestanding roll-top slipper bath, a free-standing oak French dresser with a marble top, and his & hers round hand basins. A corner shower, WC, and an apex ceiling complete this magnificent room.

Church View: A Complementary Dwelling
A matching front door on the east side provides a symmetrical facade. Private access to the remainder of the property is via a wrought iron fence which leads to a door for entry into 'Church View'. Upon entering, you are greeted by an open-plan kitchen, brimming with character. Quarry tile flooring and exposed beams blend seamlessly with modern conveniences. The kitchen boasts an electric oven with a 5-gas hob and extractor fan. Space and plumbing are provided for a washing machine.

Two archways lead from the kitchen into a spacious dining room with a raised multi-fuel stove on stone. The continuation of quarry tiled flooring and exposed timbers on the walls and ceiling creates a cohesive aesthetic. The staircase rises gracefully from the dining room.

A Haven for Relaxation and Exploration
The doorway from the dining room leads you into the lounge, the original shop space. Projecting windows bathe the room in natural light, creating a bright and airy feel. Original wooden flooring adds warmth, while a fireplace with a red tile surround provides a focal point. Double church doors add a touch of grandeur and lead out to a convenient double garage.

Two double bedrooms offer comfortable living quarters. One bedroom boasts a large storage cupboard and eaves space, providing ample room for belongings. The family bathroom features a classic panelled bath with period mixer taps and an electric shower overhead. A WC, hand wash basin, heated towel rail, and additional built-in storage complete this functional space.

Step Outside and Embrace the Tranquillity
Beyond the walls lies a gated garden, a true haven for relaxation and exploration. Divided into distinct sections, it offers something for everyone. Off-road parking caters to several vehicles, including a dedicated space for a caravan or campervan. Two double garages provide ample storage, while a greenhouse and a goat shed, currently utilised as a workshop, offer additional functionality.

A charming patio area beckons you outdoors, inviting you to sit and admire the surroundings. A large, formal lawn area stretches across the garden, perfect for summertime activities. In the rear corner, a raised patio creates an enchanting space for al fresco dining. Following the patio, an archway covered in climbing plants leads to a secret, secluded courtyard garden. Here, a large raised pond teeming with koi carp and established water plants provides a serene ambiance. A surrounding stone wall offers privacy, creating a tranquil oasis.

A Haven for the Green-Thumbed
Adjacent to the courtyard garden lies the vegetable garden, a haven for the green-thumbed. Walled raised beds border the edges, while floor-level vegetable beds offer additional space for cultivating homegrown produce. A greenhouse stands proudly at the rear of the vegetable garden, providing the perfect environment for nurturing delicate plants.
