Plas Penyglannau is a stunning, five-bedroomed house near Gellilydan in Eryri. This secluded country residence, built in the 1800s, previously formed part of the Oakley Estate and was the original Estate Manager's house.

Made with both stone and slate in keeping with traditional construction methods, it still has the original one-acre walled garden, which was the original vegetable garden for the Tan Y Bwlch Estate.

It's a short stroll from Y Bryn Arms and has open countryside with public footpaths leading towards Llyn Trawsfynydd Lake. Tastefully modernised and refurbished by the current owners, it has a wealth of original features, with modern additions such as the bright and airy sitting room with part-vaulted ceiling and mezzanine, oil-fired underfloor heating and hardwood timber double-glazed sash windows.

A modern extension at the back houses a sitting room with vaulted ceiling and glass wall with views and access to the rear garden.

The dining room leads to a sun room with a large picture window and access to the front driveway and a utility area with plenty of storage. There's a home office/gym area with a large picture window overlooking the back garden.

On the first floor are three equal-size double bedrooms with access to the family bathroom, along with the mezzanine overlooking the sitting room with views towards open countryside, offering the perfect place to relax.
