About the property

Living in a windmill in a popular village location is a romantic dream for many, but the reality of many conversions is a lack of space. Not so with The Old Windmill in Glanwydden, which is a mature conversion and has been made into a most impressive and unique home of generous proportions. Accessed via a private sweeping drive, off the country road into the village set in approximately an acre of grounds adjoining fields The Old Windmill provides a truly unique opportunity to acquire a stunning local landmark. There is evidence in Aberystwyth that the first Royal Charter granted to the Wynne family for the construction of a windmill on the site back in 1580. It is reputed to be the largest based windmill in Wales. There is a key stone on the door of the Mill that dates a rebuild in 1704. The keystone bears the inscription Sr RM and 66.8 which is believed to give reference to the psalm Praise our God. The Mill fell into disuse in the late industrial era when steam powered Mills in Manchester and Liverpool superseded most wind powered flour production. Only the base of the Mill remained. Today this provides accommodation over three floors comprising an impressive stone DINING ROOM. Above, the same space has been divided to form two half round bedrooms whilst on the top level is a huge ROUND BEDROOM with original exposed eight 'spoke' timbers A solid oak gothic style front door leads into the LONG HALLWAY featuring a stained glass porthole window depicting a windmill. At the end of the hall is a huge light and airy RECEPTION LOUNGE - FITTED KITCHEN BREAKFAST ROOM - SUN LOUNGE - UTILITY ROOM - SHOWER ROOM. Upstairs there is the MASTER BEDROOM and HUGE EN SUITE BATHROOM - GUEST BEDROOM and FAMILY BATHROOM. Outside at the side of the Mill is the 33' long GARAGE curved in line with the structure of the mill. Despite the lovely country location the property is by no means remote being only a short drive to Llandudno, Penrhyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea. CB6423
