Renovation project offers chance to escape to the idyllic Welsh countryside

A “get away from it all” property in the heart of rolling Welsh countryside has the potential to become a beautiful family home.

The three bedroomed detached property – Sarnau, Clawddnewydd, Ruthin – sits on a large plot with outbuildings and is due to be sold by SDL Auctions North West at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester in June with a *guide price of £240,000+.

And head of auctions Andy Thompson is confident the property’s location and potential will attract a lot of attention.

He said: “The house is in an idyllic location, with no immediate neighbours and surrounded by open farmland. It really is an opportunity to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the stunning Denbighshire countryside.”

The ground floor of the property comprises a lounge, dining room, kitchen and lean-to. The dining room retains some interesting features, including a beamed ceiling and an inglenook fireplace with a large wooden lintel. The living room has a feature stone fireplace.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with wash basin, plus the family bathroom, which has a shower over the bath. Outside, the property has a stone-built detached garage, which has fallen into disrepair, and a kennel.

Andy added: “As you will see from the photos, the property is in need of renovation, but it does have central heating and double glazing, and offers the potential to create a stunning, one-of-a-kind family home. We highly recommend viewing the property to see this potential for yourself.”

Accessed via a minor country lane, the property is just over a mile from Clawddnewydd village, which has a strong community spirit, evidenced by the fact that the shop, community hall and pub are all owned and run by the villagers.

For larger shops and a wider range of amenities, including medical services, restaurants and sports clubs, Ruthin town centre is around six miles away. Ruthin has excellent transport links to Mold, Wrexham and Chester.

A popular tourist attraction nearby is Llyn Brenig visitor centre, around half a mile away from the village. It has forest walks, an adventure playground, trout fishery, cycle hire, a café and is home to the Llyn Brenig Osprey project.

The property is due to go under the hammer at SDL Auctions North West’s auction at the AJ Bell Stadium, Manchester on Wednesday 5 June, with a guide price of £240,000+.
