Property SummaryDelfryn is an interesting property combining original character with contemporary touches. Two separate staircases provide an opportunity for multi-generational living or private guest accommodation. Throughout the house are many attractive features such as wooden doors and floors, exposed beams and stone inglenooks.
An interesting period property which has been updated to create a beautiful family home with the potential to add some further cosmetic touches. From the front terrace a glazed front door leads into the tiled hallway with access either side to the reception rooms and a further door to the utility room fitted with useful cupboards, downstairs WC and door to the rear of the property. To the left of the entrance hall, stairs lead into the main sitting room with exposed timbers, woodburning stove set into a fabulous stone inglenook with deep mantel over, glazed double doors to the rear garden and stairs to the first floor. A step leads up into the spacious open-plan dining/kitchen. To one end of the room is plenty of space for a large dining table and chairs and excellent built-in storage cupboards. The contemporary kitchen, with oak A-frames and slate flooring, is fitted with a range of grey Shaker-style units with granite worksurface and upstands and a matching island with built-in Belfast sink and butcher’s block. An attractive inglenook on the back wall is suitable for a range cooker and opposite are superb floor-to-ceiling windows with a door opening onto the front terrace area offering fabulous views. An arched wooden door leads into the pantry with further units and space for white goods. To the other side of the entrance hall are two versatile reception rooms, both with woodburning stoves set into feature stone surrounds with windows overlooking the front. Stone steps lead down from the larger of the rooms to the cellar with flagstone floor and exposed timbers. A second staircase leads from the reception room to the first floor. From most of the glazed doors are superb views towards open countryside.
The main staircase from the sitting room leads to a galleried landing with window overlooking the rear. The master bedroom features a coombed ceiling with exposed timbers and excellent built-in wardrobe space. A doorway leads into a contemporary en suite with roll-top bath and wooden steps leading up to a separate shower with attractive mosaic tiling and rainshower fitting. Another smaller bedroom on the other side of the landing also has an en suite bathroom, original timbers and a window to the side. The second staircase from the lounge rises to a landing with a window overlooking the rear and doors to a family bathroom, two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and a third, smaller bedroom.
The property is approached through a wooden gate leading to the front garden, with lawn enclosed by low stone walls, and a generous tarmac driveway with ample parking and turning area. To the rear is a stone patio area with steps leading up to a sun terrace. The gently sloping lawn is bordered by open fields and affords stunning views towards the Sugar Loaf mountain, the Darren and the edge of the Black Mountains.
