Ruthin Road, Bwlchgwyn

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3


Since 2019 this historic village property has been sympathetically renovated and retains immense character and charm with beamed ceilings, exposed timbers, stone and brickwork. Originally thought to have two shops and a smithy on the ground floor, it was more latterly used as the village post office. The "quirky" accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule; central hallway with a heavy timber treaded staircase leading off to a half-landing with a large coloured lead-light window; dining room; kitchen with black fronted units fitted with contrasting woodblock work surfaces; living room with a sold fuel two oven "Rayburn" range cooker; utility and shower rooms. On the first floor there is a landing lounge with open fireplace; sun lounge with access to the compartmented gardens with lawns and a choice of decked seating areas; three double bedrooms and a bathroom. The house is double glazed and is heated by a variety of solid fuel fires and high retention electric radiators. There is off street parking in a side car port with fuel stores off. Works recently carried out include re-wiring to the ground floor with satin switches, re-plumbing, damp proofing, replacement insulated ground floors with oak laminate finish and subsequent tasteful redecoration. AN UNUSUAL HOME OF CHARACTER WELL WORTHY OF INTERNAL INSPECTION.


The property is situated at the heart of the village on the A525 Wrexham (6 miles) to Ruthin (7 miles) Road with a regular bus service to both. It claims to be the highest village in Wales and is situated on the edge of magnificent open countryside. It provides a popular modern Primary School, Pub/Restaurant, multi-use Village Hall and the nearby One Planet Adventure Mountain Bike Centre. More wide-ranging amenities are available in the neighbouring village of Coedpoeth (2 miles). It is also convenient to Mold (9 miles) and Chester (13 miles) which can be accessed via the A483 at Rossett.
