Property
Glandwr Hall is a stunning 17th Century country
house occupying a prominent coastal position on
the Mawddach Estuary, said to be one of the finest
estuaries in Europe, with superb views over to the
Cadair Idris mountain range in Snowdonia. The
Hall has been in the ownership of same family for
the past 22 years and has served as a much loved
second home. Under the present ownership, the
house has been extensively restored and
improved, including modern marble bathrooms
with C.P.Hart fittings. The property stands in
glorious gardens and grounds enjoying a quay,
indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, and tennis
court. The hall combines delightfully presented and
comfortable living space, ideal for every-day living
and larger scale entertaining, with an array of
charming period features.

Approached through an arched front door with
stained glass panels, the entrance porch leads into
a central reception hall, with a locally sourced
Glandwr oak panelled floor, off which leads a
study, three principle reception rooms and a
graceful staircase. The drawing room, dining room
and sitting room all have attractive fireplaces and
deep bay windows framing the south facing views
across the estuary. The elegant drawing room is
notable with its French doors onto the large raised
sun terrace, ideal for outdoor dining. The kitchen
is accessed from both the reception hall and the
dining room, and is fitted with an extensive range
of oak units, along with a five-oven electric aga
with a matching gas hob. From the kitchen leads a
breakfast room with a utility room beyond. A boiler
room, boot room, tool room and cloakroom
complete the ground floor accommodation. There
is a sizeable cellar, with three rooms and a wine
storage area.

Seven bedrooms are laid out over the first and
second floors with most of the bedrooms enjoying
far reaching views. The principle bedroom benefits
from a spacious en-suite bathroom with roll top
bath, walk in marble shower, ‘his and hers’ sinks,
feature fireplace and marble tiles with underfloor
heating. The remaining bedrooms are served by
three bathrooms, with tiled floors, two of which
