This fine residence is set in the centre of the magnificent Snowdonia National Park. Amidst the beautiful and evocative Snowdonia countryside, Plas Blaenddol was built around 200 years ago as home for the wealthy owner of a local slate mine with the additional benefit of a Lodge House at the entrance to the estate. The gardens and surrounding views are nothing short of spectacular.

Plas Blaenddol is without doubt one of the area´s principal residences. The striking beauty of the locality and the backdrop of the Moelwyn mountain range to the north of the estate, add real drama. The position of the residence was obviously well chosen and the tranquil setting just perfect! Llan Ffestiniog is centrally positioned to give easy access to the northerly and southerly areas of the Snowdonia National Park whilst sitting at the head of the beautiful Vale of Ffestiniog. The inspiring landscape is well documented and offers an ideal place in which to settle.

In more recent years the building was converted into three separate dwellings known as Manor House, Lake House and Old Bell House. Lake House and Old Bell House are currently let as holiday cottages. The alterations were made in such a way that conversion back to a single property would be easily possible.
There is also the scope for the main house and lodge to be converted to commercial use: Some of the possibilities are as a hotel, guest house or perhaps a rest/care home. (We hold a document from the National Park Office stating that change of use either back to a single dwelling or as a commercial concern may be considered but advises potential buyers to contact the authority directly to discuss any proposal).

The substantial garden grounds consist of extensive lawns with an abundance of established trees and shrubs providing the estate with a high degree of privacy. In addition there is a lake and 3 acre river valley which forms part of a conservation area.
Amidst a land of legends, castles and dragons, the wonderful Plas Blaenddol family residence would make not only a perfect family home but also a home with an income and many other possibilities besides. This is a sale that provides a rare and unique opportunity for discerning purchasers to acquire the ultimate in Welsh Country Manor Houses.

Locality
Plas Blaenddol sits in a truly idyllic location amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in the Snowdonia National park. The relaxing parkland grounds offer a peaceful setting with a stunning mountain scape backdrop of the peaks of the Moelwyn mountains on the far side of the Ffestiniog valley. The Vale of Ffestiniog is where the rivers Cynfal, Teigl and Goedol converge and gently meander towards Tremadog Bay. The Ffestiniog area is historically well known for its slate mining heritage the evidence of which has clearly left its mark amongst the hillsides - one can only imagine what the local miners thought of working within the beautiful landscape. A real asset and highlight for the area is the new construction of a Mountain Bike Centre near Llechwedd with competition and leisure routes along with workshops. With this new centre on the doorstep, Plas Blaenddol is also centrally situated equidistant between two other mountain biking centres, i.e. Coed y Brenin and Gwydyr Forest, both approximately 14 miles distant. Blaenau Ffestiniog (just some 2½ miles) has a mainline railway station and interestingly has the highest station on the Ffestiniog Railway which runs to Porthmadog and connects with the Welsh Highland Railway. Bala can also be easily accessed and caters for a variety of watersports. Along the main thoroughfare of the A487 on the edge of the Vale lies the village of Penrhyndeudraeth which has a range of amenities and mainline railway station to provide the necessary links for the coastline towns. Also nearby is the famous Italianesque village of Portmeirion built by Clough Williams-Ellis which became famous in the 1960´s for hosting the Prisoner TV series that starred Patrick McGoohan. Further on you will find the large town of Porthmadog. Porthmadog has a lovely harbour and marina whilst within the town you will find the majority of your shopping needs taken care of together with schools and leisure facilities. The colourful town is home to the Welsh Highland Railway which now stretches all the way to Caernarfon. Just along the coastline on the Llyn Peninsula there is the historic Criccieth and the market town of Pwllheli which is famous for its marina, hosting many sailing regattas throughout the year. Last but by no means least, is that the Snowdonia Mountain range, constantly present beckons the adventurer to climb, explore and discover new vistas, offering a whole new dimension on the area.
