A WREXHAM property has missed out on the title of Wales’ Home of the Year.

The final of the BBC show seeking to crown Wales’ best home concluded with Half-a-Hall in Wrexham making the final five but missing out on the judges’ top three.

BBC Radio 2 presenter and fashionista Owain Wyn Evans was joined by interior designer from Anglesey Mandy Watkins and Cardiff architect Glen Thomas in determining which property was the winner.

In the end, they plumped for a Carmarthenshire farmhouse with a garden room extension as the winner.

But the judges were full of praise for Wrexham’s Half-a-Hall, an historic Grade II listed home belonging to Hannah, her husband Aled and their two children.

Believed to have been originally built in the late 16th century, the home has since been extended and developed several times.

Now, it's an 'amalgamation' of the servants' quarters and a section of the original manor house.

Three spacious bedrooms, an old smoking room, a wonderful kitchen and a playroom are among its most striking features.

Features such as the marble kitchen worktop, glitterballs on the ceilings and Edwardian features were included amongst the praise from the trio of judges.

Glen Thomas said the property was a “work of art” and a “museum of curiosity”, whilst Owain Wyn Evans said “spending time in this home was incredible, it was stunning”.

Owain also likened the house to a “TV or film location”, but this was not enough for the property to make the cut for the judges’ top three.
