A rare opportunity to acquire this most impressive Victorian residence formerly home to the family of the world renowned Laura Ashley. Currently part way through a complete renovation this enchanting Arts & Crafts styled property totals almost 9000 sq ft. Comprising 4 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms suites, (all to be completed) a completed second floor 1 bedroom apartment and externally complemented by lawned landscaped gardens, extensive range of traditional farm buildings, 13 acre pasture paddock (stms - subject to measured survey) and 33 acres (stms) of mature woodland with dramatic rock outcrops and waterfalls. In all the property extends to about 50 acres (stms).
Since its sale by the Ashley family in 2009 Rhydoldog has undergone extensive renovation by the current vendors. This huge task was undertaken by jdw Building Conservation Ltd.
The refurbishment to date has concentrated on creating a luxurious apartment in which the owners have resided whilst works to the main house have been ongoing. They have focused on completely transforming the external facade through carrying out necessary structural works in the cellar and to the front elevation, creating first and second floor stone balconies, external insulation with render finish to all elevations, hardwood double glazed windows with leaded, stained glass feature windows and addition of cast iron rainwater goods.
The interior of the house is part way through its refurbishment and considered ideal for the purchaser to either continue with the vendors fully prepared plans or implement their own personal internal specification and finish.
The refurbished apartment is truly impressive with an abundance of character and extremely high quality finish. The kitchen is sub divided by an oak and stained glass partition wall drawing your eye up to the exposed roof trusses. The handmade fitted kitchen allows for all the modern conveniences with integrated appliances and granite work surfaces. The living room benefits from further exposed oak work and a wood burning stove, whilst off the double bedroom is the fully fitted dressing room and en-suite.
