Morlais is a traditional Welsh stone built two bedroomed cottage in a highly sought after quiet location in the heart of Harlech. It is larger than expected having been extended to create a superbly sized kitchen diner and an upstairs bathroom. In addition to sea glimpses from the front rooms it has an exceptionally large garden from which there are spectacular sea and castle views.
The property is fully double glazed with contemporary electric radiators throughout and a modern bathroom. The lounge has a closed feature fireplace which we are advised could be brought back into use as an open fire or wood burning stove. There is scope for new owners to add further value by a scheme of mainly cosmetic improvement.
The front door opens into a small entrance hall with door off to lounge and stairs up to the first floor.

A feature of this property is the extensive garden which has magnificent views of Harlech Castle and the sea and over to the Lynn Peninsula. This fully enclosed garden is much larger than average for this type of property and is arranged on several levels, mostly laid to lawn with a range of mature bushes and shrubs. There are also several areas of hard standing which could be utilised for green houses, sheds etc. In addition there is the advantage of a power supply.
There is a lovely area at the top of the garden which would be ideal for a summer house which would have spectacular views and enjoy the most amazing sunsets.
Contemporary electric radiators throughout provide the heating. The addition of a two story extension has resulted in a large kitchen/diner and an upstairs bathroom. A further flat roof extension has added outside storage and WC. Although the house has been well maintained, new owners would probably wish to add further value by undertaking a scheme of mainly cosmetic improvements.
Harlech is in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park famous for its World Heritage listed castle. It has astonishing views across Tremadog Bay to the Lleyn Peninsula and one of the most picturesque golden sandy beaches in Wales that has one of the finest examples of a natural dune system with some dunes reaching 30 feet high. Harlech has also recently been given the accolade of having the second steepest street in the world at Ffordd Pen Llech which is proving to be a major tourist attraction.
Harlech has a wealth of traditional architecture, shops and restaurants. It also boasts the internationally renowned Royal St David's links golf course. Further afield are the larger towns of Barmouth (8 miles) and Porthmadog (12 miles) which offer more shops and large supermarkets. For those that require it, a private aircraft can be landed at Llanbedr airport which is about 3 miles from this property. For the rest of us Harlech railway station is a 5 minute walk away!
The Rhinog mountain range provides the spectacular backdrop to the town which is one of the most rugged and remote terrains to be found in Wales. The mountains and hills there provide hiking and walking opportunities for all ranges of abilities. Other walking trails include the Taith Ardudwy Way which is a well signposted upland pathway of 24 miles from Barmouth in the south to Llandecwyn in the north. There are also numerous biking trails and the nearby Zip World and Caverns nearby in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
