Bryn Mair, Dolgellau, Gwynedd, LL40 1SR

A handsome and imposing Grade II Listed former rectory which occupies a tucked away situation but commands scenic views over local mountainous scenery.  Originally constructed in 1838 during the Georgian period, numerous ornate architectural features have been well preserved through three centuries of occupancy.  A kitchen extension was added during the 1950's and in the last decade or so further upgrading and improvements have brought it up to more modern standards of style and comfort.

Bryn Mair has been rewired and refurbished with several modern bathrooms and kitchen.  There is gas fired central heating by radiators and a tastefully chosen scheme of interior decor.  Not evident from a drive past is the established and private walled garden and the exciting potential offered by the substantial detached former coach house, ripe for renovation.  It also has separate vehicular access at the rear.  

A beautiful Grade II Listed detached stone built Georgian house and former rectory that has a large garden and the substantial coach house at the rear is ripe for refurbishment (subject to necessary consents). The main house is up to date with an interior that is stylishly presented with too many character features to list!  There is gas fired central heating, several refitted bathrooms, modern kitchen plus private parking area.  The current owners successfully generate a lucrative income from providing upmarket B & B accommodation.  There is so much to see here we even suggest booking a short stay or weekend visit to immerse yourself in the experience! The video tour on our website should also give you a good insight.

Bryn Mair is only a few minutes walk from the town square and commands a slightly elevated situation with far reaching mountain views extending beyond the town.  The house is away from busy vehicular traffic up a narrow and winding lane on the fringe of the town and there is easy access to the countryside and Cader Idris via local footpaths. Dolgellau provides a good variety of shops and local amenities.  Much of the town is a conservation area with numerous quaint traditional stone buildings.  The town serves the surrounding rural community and is boosted by tourism and regular visitors to the locality.  The town plays host to several annual sporting events, festivals and fairs and retains its character and historic appeal to due careful conservation and development.  The community benefits from a broad range of other facilities including schools for all age groups, good bus services, hospital and a modern leisure centre. 

Directions

Follow these directions carefully and ignore your sat nav!! From the entrance to Eldon Square in the centre of Dolgellau turn left off the one way street signposted Tywyn/Barmouth with the arches on your right hand side.  Follow the road passing the Lemon Grass Indian Restaurant on the right.  Look out on your left for the house with the pale blue/grey railings and door with a distinctive porch.  Take the narrow lane immediately after this house on the xxxx hand side.  This appears to be very narrow, but it's actually OK, although it is quite a sharp turning.  You will see a pale blue sign for Ffynnon Town House.  Follow the lane which bears left and then right.  Bryn Mair is the 3rd gateway on the right and has its name plate to the left of the driveway on a slate stone.
