BORTH The perfect Holiday home, or full-time residence, this 3 bed home is close both to all the local amenities and all the family favourites of the beach, golf course and zoo! Although removed from the hustle and bustle, there is plenty to do in this quiet welsh village, perhaps one of the most enjoyable things being watching the film crews whom come down to film Hinterland in Borth and Aberystwyth, which is a mere 7 miles away. In short, a great location + stunning interiors = a property well worth a visit. Unless expressly stated all rooms have a range of power points, double glazed windows and electric panel heaters.
PROPERTY COMPRISES Property is entered via double glazed uPVC half panel and half opaque glazed door into the lounge.
LOUNGE/DINER 24′ 2" x 14′ 11" (7.38m x 4.57m) Sensitive to the original character of the house, but preferring clean contemporary lines, the lounge feels modern whilst maintaining some old-world welsh charm – for example, rather than being covered, the original exposed stone wall has been made into a great focal point with the new multi-fuel stove set into it. The remaining flat and wood clad walls have been painted in white and soft grey tones, mimicking the stone whilst making this already spacious room feel even bigger with the reflection of light entering from the large bay window. By completing the bay window with a window seat, the current owners have actually made this feel like its own intimate space, perfect for curling up with a good book, whilst still being with the rest of the family. On the opposite side of the room, another window lets in natural light in the space which has become the formal dining room, framing views of a small patio area outside and fields which extend beyond the property. Completing this room are the welsh slate tiles which have been used to cover the floor, adding yet another natural texture to this environment informed room, which also boasts beautiful timber beams. From this room there is a communicating door to the kitchen and a stairway leading to the first floor.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM 29′ 0" x 8′ 10" (8.86m x 2.70m) Spacious like the lounge, only narrower, the welsh slate flooring and natural soft grey and white tones have been continued into the Kitchen, making the two spaces feel united despite the division. With two sky lights and a double glazed uPVC window, a single uPVC casement door, and French doors to the side, this room lets in natural light with every given opportunity. Fitted with a range of contemporary white and grey gloss base and eye level units, with roll top work surfaces over, the Kitchen has a 11/2 bowl, single drainer, stainless steel sink with mixer tap over. In this room there is space suitable for free standing fridge freezer, and the kitchen benefits from both an Integrated Bosch dishwasher and a four burner induction hob with extractor hood over and Neff double oven with separate complimentary grill below. For added practicality, this room boasts space and plumbing for washing machine, in addition to tiling to water sensitive areas.
WC 6′ 6" x 2′ 8" (2.00m x .83m) With tiling to water sensitive areas and slate flooring, the suite comprises a low flush WC and wash hand basin.
FIRST FLOOR LANDING 11′ 9" x 4′ 10" (3.59m x 1.49m) Communicating doors off. Stairs which rise and turn to second floor.
BATHROOM 10′ 7" x 7′ 6" (3.24m x 2.29m) Fitted to a high standard, this family bathroom wouldn’t be out of place in a design magazine, displaying the same sensitivity towards natural textures as the other rooms do, with its stone effect tiles which cover the walls. Making this bathroom even more of a luxury relaxation space are the down lighters in this room, which are perhaps perfect along with a bit of smooth jazz in making a bubble bath all that much more indulgent. Worth noting for less time allowing days is that the bath is complete with a shower screen and electric shower attachment. The rest of the suite comprises low flush WC, ceramic basin set in vanity unit, and a chrome heated towel rail.
MASTER BEDROOM 15′ 0" x 11′ 0" (4.59m x 3.36m) Boasting beautifully restored rustic wood flooring, this neutrally painted room has much potential as a warm and charming space. The feature fireplace on a slate heath with wood surround provides a wonderful opportunity for a full restoration, as few things are quite so lovely on a winter night as a roaring fire. From this room two windows overlook the front the front of the house and let in natural light to the room.
BEDROOM TWO 10′ 10" x 8′ 11" (3.31m x 2.72m) This second bedroom, though smaller than the master is still well-proportioned room, with plenty of space for both a double bed and a large wardrobe. As with the master Bedroom, this room has had its floorboards wonderfully restored to a rustic antique finish. From this room, there is a window overlooking the patio area and the fields beyond the property line.
BEDROOM THREE/LOFT 14′ 7" x 15′ 1" (4.45m x 4.62m) Thoughtfully converted, the former loft – now bedroom, feels light and spacious with two windows to the side letting in natural light, and neutrally painted walls and carpet. Two dormer style windows also feature to the rear, and the room boasts plenty of built-in storage, with both a cupboard and eaves storage. Perhaps the most majestic characteristic of this room are the richly colored aged beams framing the space.
OUTSIDE SIDE OF PROPERTY A minimal, low maintenance, terraced area with bamboo fencing accessed via kitchen. Although not the largest, one can hardly complain when the beach is close enough to serve as your garden.
