Cae Cymro occupies a superb elevated position having exceptional rural views towards Moal Famau. The property is situated in the pretty village of Gwernymynydd, on the fringe of the Market Town of Mold. Mold offers a comprehensive range of services and amenities, whilst Chester and Wrexham offer additional facilities.
On the recreational front, Loggerheads Country Park is within a short distance offering many beautiful walks. Mold Golf Club is within a short distance, and plenty of Sports Clubs are based in Mold.
There is a broad range of primary schools in the vicinity, in addition to Alun High School, Mold, and Ysgol Brynhyfryd in Ruthin. Local independent schools include King’s and Queen’s Schools in Chester, and Ruthin School.
Cae Cymro is well-placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West, being within seven miles of the A55, North Wales Expressway, leading to the North Wales Coast to the north west and Chester to the east, in turn connecting to the M53 and M56 motorway networks. Chester Railway Station offers a direct line service to London Euston within two hours.
Cae Cymro dates to the 18th Century, formerly a cottage and shippon, and having been significantly extended in the 1930s. More recently the property has been further extended and refurbished throughout to an exceptional standard by the current owners over recent years, including a full rewire, re-plumbing and cavity wall insulation.
The property incorporates numerous environmentally friendly technologies, including a 16-panel ground-mounted solar photovoltaic installation, a Biomass wood-pellet boiler, numerous wood-burning stoves and double glazing.
The property would be of particular interest to buyers seeking tranquillity, but would also appeal to families with recreational interests, including equestrian.
The main door opens into a welcoming reception porch with semi-vaulted ceiling and a pretty window seat with boot storage. At the heart of the house there is a beautifully fitted kitchen with a range of cabinets and island with breakfast bar, all under oak block work surfaces. The focal point of the kitchen is an electric three oven total control Aga with extractor hood. Other integrated appliances include an eye-level Bosch electric fan oven. A recess off the kitchen offers space for an American-style fridge freezer, and the adjoining utility room has a single drainer sink unit with plumbing for laundry appliances. Off the utility room is a useful laundry room housing the Extraflame LP30 wood pellet-burning central heating and hot water boiler.
Forming part of the recent extensions is an exceptional sunroom with vaulted ceiling and a glazed gable end affording tremendous westerly views across the gardens towards Moel Famau and the Clwydian Range. The sunroom is a most sociable room having, porcelain tile flooring, with wet underfloor heating, running seamlessly into the adjoining kitchen. Also opening off the sunroom is the snug, featuring a wood-burning stove within a corner recess with slate-effect tile surround. Light oak double doors open from the snug into the formal sitting room, also featuring a wood-burning stove with back boiler flanked by bespoke cupboards to each recess. Sliding doors open onto the front terrace and afford tremendous views.
At the far end of the house is an adaptable room having direct exterior access, which is currently being utilised as a study and would be ideal for a dependent relative or a guest suite. This room benefits from planning consent to build to the front of the property, should it be required. The shower room has a contemporary white suite including a luxurious walk-in drench head shower and is warmed by electric underfloor heating.
At the opposite end of the house, with access off the entrance porch, is a large room with a range of base cabinets, currently being utilised as a workshop, but could be converted to provide a further reception room or a large boot room. A turned staircase rises from here to a large loft room with vaulted ceiling, power points, lighting and roof lights. This room could be adapted for a variety of uses, including a hobby room, cinema room or a guest suite.
Whilst the first floor is fully inter-linked, it does benefit from two staircases to give flexibility which will suit a variety of living requirements. The master bedroom is particularly worthy, being of large proportions and benefiting from a large glazed elevation having fantastic rural views. There are three further double bedrooms, a family bathroom, separate family shower room and a luxurious contemporary en suite shower room to the master bedroom.
Gardens and grounds
Cae Cymro sits in a particularly private setting away from the road behind metal estate fencing. A sweeping driveway leads to the house, flanked by SSSI woodland, leading to a gravel-laid hard-standing providing extensive parking facilities, in turn leading to the attached double garage with remote door. The formal gardens sit to the west of the house, mainly laid to lawn with established stocked borders, including a pretty summerhouse. To the bottom of the formal gardens is a substantial timber-built garden machinery store, along with extensive wood storage facilities. Also within the formal gardens is an orchard with plumb, pear, damson and apple trees. Beyond the gardens is a large relatively flat paddock, ideal for ponies. The paddock incorporates the ground-mounted solar photovoltaic panels. Beyond the principal paddock are further grounds providing space for stabling, subject to any necessary consents. The gardens run down to the Maeshafn Road where there is further woodland.
