With high vaulted ceilings, dual aspect windows, under eaves storage and ample room for a dining table this room is simply spectacular. It is accessed via an open staircase leading from the kitchen area and the full double glazing coupled with gas central heating makes this an incredibly welcoming room what ever the weather.
This fully self enclosed area is accessed by stepping out of the hallway door. This spans the width of the house and gives truly beautiful views down to the quaint Barmouth Harbour area, Fairbourne Spit and over the sea to Llwyngwril and the Cambrian Coast beyond. A raised decking area at one end is perfect for enjoying a gin and tonic or alfresco dining in total peace and seclusion whilst watching the hustle and bustle down below.
A "mast" on the white washed balcony provides the facility to hoist a sail over the paved area to give much needed shade on a sunny day. The far end is protected by rock face where only the sea gulls nesting on the surrounding cliffs will over look you. This spot really is a visual delight. On the other side of the house the kitchen door leads out to a hidden gated bin store and a further decking area bounded by the cliffs and whitewashed walls. This leads down to the gated entrance to the property. A wooden gate leads out onto the steps, from which you can either head down to the town or up to the aptly named "Panorama Walk" and Dinas Oleu, (‘Fortress of Light’), a Roman-period hill fort on the National Trust land behind.
Immediately behind and to the side there is a rocky hillside outcrop sheltering Llanwenfan and extending upwards - see the image of the land registry plan for further details. This rugged and natural slice of Barmouth rock is also included with the property.
