Yr Hen Grochendy, Benar View, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, LL41 3UT

Nothing can prepare you for coming here!  Read on and then watch the video on our website.  There is so much on offer for your money, it is a pretty sure bet you will have never seen anything like this before - especially the workshop space!  Close to the town centre but tucked away from the main thoroughfare, this substantial detached home stands in large gardens and provides 3 reception rooms, a kitchen and ground floor bedroom.  There are 2 integrated workshop areas and upstairs another spectacular first floor family room, main bathroom and 3 more bedrooms.  Add to this an array of period character features, complimented by extensive double glazing and gas fired central heating and you get a rare blend of versatility and individuality.  You can't possibly get the full picture of all this without viewing for yourself and if you are a steam enthusiast the spectacle of the narrow gauge railway at the bottom of the garden should seal the deal!  

This is something to really get "steamed" up about!! The trains on the Ffestiniog narrow gauge railway come out of the tunnel at the bottom of the garden.  There is a massive amount of accommodation including extensive workshop space plus 3 ground floor reception rooms, a first floor lounge, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 2 integral workshops and a lot of overgrown gardens.  The attraction is further boosted by traditional character and period features evident from top to bottom, from the slate flooring, exposed stone walls, timbered ceiling, latch and brace doors and even some arrow slit windows.  Don't worry there is still gas fired central heating and plenty of double glazing.  Watch the video on our website to get even more of the flavour!

Location

Blaenau Ffestiniog is situated high up amongst scenery in an area surrounded by the Snowdonia National Park. The towns slate mining industry still survives today but was in its heyday during the Victorian era and spectacular evidence of this can still be seen in the surrounding scenery.Blaenau Ffestiniog is a good base from which to explore the surrounding countryside, which forms part of the National Park, and the harbour town of Porthmadog is approximately 15 miles distant where the coastline also provides numerous sandy beaches.The town is served by a range of local shops, schools, doctor’s surgery and a swimming pool. It is the home of the famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway running to Porthmadog. There is also a main rail link to the national network with trains to Llandudno Junction.

From the centre of Blaenau Ffestiniog proceed along the High Street A470 in the direction of Betws Y Coed and turn left at the roundabout.  Cross the bridge and turn immediately left and then take the next right turn into Trem Y Bennar (Bennar View).  The entrance gate to Yr Hen Grochendy will then be seen immediately on the right with its' nameplate on it and by our For Sale Board.  

Directions

Even though Yr Hen Grochendy is so close to the town centre you wouldn't stumble across it by accident as it is so well screened from the street.  The gardens afford a high degree of privacy and back on to the Ffestiniog narrow gauge railway.  This provides a trackside view as the trains emerge from the adjacent tunnel in clouds of steam and smoke, there's nothing quite like it!

Parking and Gardens

There is a vehicular gateway to the driveway which provides parking space for several vehicles end to end. The front garden has flower beds with slate walls and mature trees and shrubs. This area is overgrown and in need of cultivation. An outhouse provides a toilet with Belfast sink, power and water. The driveway leads along the right hand side to the rear. The wooded gardens back directly onto the Ffestiniog narrow gauge railway as it emerges form a nearby tunnel. What a great viewpoint from which to enjoy the tradition of smoke and steam which pervades the air as the trains run past. There is also a garage with its own access driveway further along the street.
