About this property

This charming two-bedroom cottage is situated in the quaint rural hamlet of Cwm-Morgan that is found within a wooded valley following the glittering River Cych, a place that features in the Medieval stories of the legendary Welsh Mabinogion. Penrhiw is a traditional country cottage, with a later block-built extension, sunny terraced garden, feature pond and a wood cabin, which is currently run as a holiday let. Within the modern single storey extension; there is a traditional kitchen with fitted cabinets and wooden worktops, a small pantry to one side and a Velux roof light allowing natural light to spill in. Leading from here is the bathroom with stone floor tiles and a utility room which can be accessed from both the bathroom and via an external door, a practical space to clean, sort and store your country-life-essential attire and footwear! From the kitchen, entering via an opening through the thick, former external wall, you join straight into the original house. There is a dining area and the living room which features exposed wooden beams and two picture windows, overlooking the front garden, inviting the outdoors in. There is a recessed nook for storing wood for the wood burner, which sits on a hefty slate hearth. Wooden floorboards run throughout this space into the kitchen and this part of the house has a fresh, open-plan feel and is a welcoming space due to its warm, character features. A staircase leads up to a landing that is currently set up as an ad-hoc office, and from here are the bedrooms, both accessed via traditional wooden doors with cast iron thumb latches. The second bedroom, set up with a double bed, is to the left and the main bedroom is straight ahead. Both bedrooms have windows overlooking the garden and views of the surrounding wooded valley, and they also feature painted timber-clad ceilings, which add to the overall warmth and homeliness of the cottage.

Directly accessed from the kitchen, is the front garden which has a small lawn, surrounded by a wonderful variety of mature shrubs, small trees and various flowers. Outside the kitchen, is a paved area where you can dine outdoors and the majority of the garden faces due West, catching the sun for most of the day.

At the end of the extension a series of steps lead up to the upper-most terrace where there is a greenhouse, a bed planted with strawberries and a workshop, the perfect space to create and store tools for the garden.

The terrace continues, lined on one side by the pretty supporting stone wall and a laurel hedge to the other side, this leads to the delightful feature pond where you can sit and enjoy uninterrupted panoramic views of the surrounding woodland. There is an area planted with various fruit bushes and vegetables in raised beds.

Steps lead down to another terrace where the purpose built wood cabin, Ty Barddu, is found. This is set away from the house and has its own decked and gravelled veranda, perfect for al-fresco dining, whilst listening to the sounds of the nearby river.

Double glazed French doors lead to the bright, open plan space inside. There is a cheerful seating area, well-equipped kitchenette and via a superb metal and glass sculpture screen, created by the owner, is the king sized bedroom and modern en-suite shower room. The cabin is currently a holiday let, providing a tranquil setting for its visitors and benefitting from its own dedicated parking space.

In summary, this home is ideally suited for those looking for a peaceful, rural setting whilst leading a more conscious, self-sustainable lifestyle. There is the ability to work from home and simultaneously benefit from a secondary income with minimal intrusion to your own living space. Penrhiw is truly a hidden gem - viewings highly recommended!
