Sat within the foothills of the famous Snowdonia National Park, a 17th century former farmhouse and mill has been carefully modernised to provide what is an idyllic rural sanctuary for a potential new owner.
With stunning views, its own converted barn providing a holiday cottage, a separate health suite with hot tub and sauna, 70 acres of Welsh hillside and 1.5 acres of landscaped gardens, Tyn Y Cornel Isaf at Abergynolwyn in south Gwynedd is more than a home.
It also has planning permission for a four-bedroom holiday let within another outbuilding, providing more opportunities for a new owner.
Owners Heulwen and Jeff Thomas bought the former farmhouse and outbuildings 11 years ago. With both working in the television industry, they wanted to remain in their home of Wales while still being able to travel easily. And the location was perfect.
Today, they have significantly renovated the three-bedroom property, transformed a former outbuilding into a luxury one-bedroom holiday let, created a health suite in another outbuilding and have planning permission for a four-bedroom holiday let.
“We used to live nearby, next to Talyllyn lake, but wanted somewhere more private and peaceful. Tyn Y Cornel Isaf was perfect,” said Heulwen.
“It had already been renovated and an extension added, but we could see so much more potential.”
They have undertaken their own extensive renovations, demolishing an existing extension and adding their own sun room and large patio in keeping with the property to enjoy the stunning views. They have also spent a great deal of time landscaping the 1.5 acres of gardens, with its own stream passing nearby.
Tyn Cornel Isaf is on the market through Mid Wales and Shropshire estate agents Morris, Marshall and Poole for £695,000.
Heulwen added: “In addition to renovating the house and buildings, we’ve landscaped the garden, making it much more accessible.”
“Y Bwthyn is the one-bedroom holiday let we’ve created. So far we’ve only had family and friends using it, but it could provide a good income and we also have planning permission to convert another outbuilding into a four-bedroom holiday let.”
It is understood the property was built around 1650 and was most likely a mill due to the location of the property and outbuildings to the stream before it became a farmhouse.
While reluctant to move from Tyn Y Cornel Isaf, they know they have secured an idyllic property through their renovations for future generations to enjoy.
“It will be sad to leave the house, but we have been very happy with our time here and what we have achieved.”
