This property has it all! If you are seeking a substantial country property in an idyllic rural setting in close proximity to the fabulous Llyn Peninsula with heaps of income generating potential, ideal for setting up a holiday business, equestrian use or other rural purpose, we would like to draw your attention to this lovely detached stone built house, which stands on an elevated position, in near total privacy, amidst approximately 91/2 acres of its own grounds, made up of garden and predominantly pasture and arable land, enjoying spectacular sea and mountain views.
It even has its own beautiful lake complete with an island! The dwelling, whose origins are believed to date back to the mid 19th century, has more recently undergone a programme of tasteful modernisation and has since been maintained to an exceptional standard by the present owners, retaining much of the style and character, one would expect from a property of this period and type. It is well worth noting that as part of the modernisation programme, the owner has installed 14 advantageously positioned photovoltaic solar panels that provide a considerable amount of the power needed in the property. The system is computer regulated, switching to graduated mains power when external conditions demand it, resulting in optimal cost savings and a much decreased carbon footprint, in addition to an income from the unused power. Unlike most rural properties that depend on a septic tanks for waste disposal, Llech Y Dwr employs the use of a Biomass Sewage Treatment Plant that that is concealed just under the sub soil at ground level but remains easily accessible if necessary and works to the highest eco friendly principles. The plant is totally odour free with virtually no maintenance required and very low running costs.
