A quirky character cottage to fit every lifestyle! With up to four bedrooms and home office, exposed stonework and beams, and 3.92 acres of gardens and grounds, including a level paddock of around 2.1 acres, this easily accessible home deserves an internal inspection!
Roughly translated to English, 'Coed Cae' means 'field of trees', and you have plenty of both with this fine family home. Approached from the main A483 road, a private driveway to only this property is lined by trees, and has gated access to a paddock on the Western fringe of the property measuring around 0.75 acres, with around 0.5 acres being grazable. The private driveway that leads down to the property offers privacy, as well as outbuildings in the form of a double dog kennel, fodder store and tack room. The driveway leads to a gravelled turning area and the double garage/carport measuring 5.68 x 4.69m and having light and power laid on. The grounds immediately surrounding the property enjoy a Southerly aspect, and extend to around an acre, with lawned area, raised patio, and a solid oak-framed seating area to enjoy the beautiful outdoors in all weathers, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines! An external oak staircase leads from here to the studio above the garage, measuring 5.89 x 4.69m (max. measurements), which could be a useful home office away from the main house, as well as occasional bedroom, gym or music room, and it enjoys four good-sized storage cupboards, and double doors to the side gardens. Gated access from the lawns leads to the 'bank' which is a sloping paddock that extends to approximately 0.25 acres, and from the top of which provides a lovely view of the property in all it's glory. Further on from here is an excellent level paddock extending to around 2.1 acres, and enjoying its own vehicular access via a grassed pull in and turning area, from the next lane along off the A483. There are numerous additional outbuildings across the land, including a field shelter, pig shed, donkey shed and chicken house.
The accommodation within the property enjoys bags of character throughout. Slabbed steps lead to the entrance to the 5.02 x 3.55m kitchen, with oil-fired Rayburn providing heating and hot water set back into a tiled recess with beam over. A door from the kitchen leads to the hallway with built-in storage cupboard and door into the 3.29 x 2.95m home office/study. A staircase falls from the hallway down to the 5.15 x 3.49m dining room/lounge with exposed wall studs and beams, and double opening doors to the grounds and a handy 1.67 x 1.00m utility room. The hallway also leads to the 5.17 x 4.18m reception room with impressive Inglenook fireplace fitted with an oil-fired stove, with beam over and original bread oven. Doors from here lead to the gardens and the study. A further staircase from the hallway leads up to a half landing with door to the shower room, and further on up to the lovely 3.65 x 3.52m family room/third bedroom or additional office. There are doors leading out on to a balcony with views over the grounds to the countryside beyond.
An oak tread staircase leads from the reception room to the first floor landing, with access into bedrooms one and two, measuring 3.18 x 2.63m and 2.91 x 2.63m respectively, the family bathroom and having ample wardrobe storage to each side.
For the walkers out there, a public footpath runs opposite which leads via a lane to moorland, and for the equestrian enthusiasts, the next lane along off the A483 is a bridle path that leads down to a ford over the River Irfon to extensive outriding over the Eppynt and Moelfre hills. All in all, this exceptional family home with a wealth of character and quirkiness must be viewed to be appreciated in full!
