The property stands on the western slopes of the Clwydian Range in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty some four miles to the east of Ruthin and some two miles from the popular village of Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd. The Vale of Clwyd is renowned for its stunning scenery and ease of access to the motorway network and across North Wales via the A55 Expressway, making it a very central position for those requiring access throughout the North West region. There is a Primary School and Church nearby whilst Ruthin is a thriving market town offering a wide range of facilities catering for most daily requirements. The Cathedral City of Chester is some 20 miles distant whilst there is a wide range of public schools in the area with Ruthin School nearby and Kings and Queens Schools in Chester. Chester also has an excellent train service to London Euston (approximately two hours).
Castell Gyrn is situated in a commanding position with magnificent panoramic views over the Vale of Clwyd, Snowdonia, the North Wales coast and in the south towards the Berwyn Mountains. The renowned architect John Taylor built this exceptional property for himself in four phases which started in 1977 and finished in 1994, although one could image it belonged to the late 18th century. Within the last ten years the current owner has made further additions and undertaken a major programme of upgrading throughout, which has included a new wing providing more a versatile living space together with refurbishment of The Lodge and a new garage facilities. It today provides immaculately presented accommodation throughout, which can only be fully appreciated on inspection.
On the ground floor there are two splendid reception rooms, both with impressive fireplaces, and the dining room has beautiful oak panelling. Following through from the dining room is the library, beyond which is the drawing room, cinema room and en suite bedroom. The modern well designed kitchen opens to a superb breakfast area with panoramic views, which also has a walk-in pantry, utility room and butler's pantry. Access from the courtyard provides a further store room with under floor heating and sink.
The first floor offers a reception room with truly splendid balcony with far reaching westerly views towards Snowdon, study and a splendid principal master bedroom suite with sitting area, dressing room and en suite bathroom.
The whole of the second floor encompasses another stunning bedroom suite with dressing room and en suite bath/shower room.
To the third floor there are two further en suite bedrooms and a turned staircase within the stone tower takes you to the roof top from which there are magnificent 360 degree views.
There is planning consent for an extension to the rear to form family leisure facilities including an infinity pool (details available online at www.denbighshire.gov.uk - planning reference no 16/2014/0541).
The property stands in a secluded position approached via wrought-iron gates of twisted metal, just one of the many artworks by well known artists/craftsmen which are interspersed throughout the well manicured grounds and act as eye-catchers reminiscent of an 18th century garden. Worthy of mention is a dragon tree carving, which actually breathes fire upon entering the grounds!
There is a delightful and relaxing courtyard garden, which sits approximately 1,000 feet above sea level, and has gravelled paths, flower beds and attractive water feature. To the left of the entrance drive is a wild life pond.
The Lodge is situated within the gated walled courtyard and offers a newly refurbished home offering a large reception room with wood burner, modern fitted kitchen and en suite bedroom with french doors opening onto a terraced area.
An immaculate double garage with door through to a single garage to one side, together with closet and wc, and stairs leading down to a very useful basement.
The Castle is set within magnificent grounds interspersed with many mature trees and further recently planted specimen trees flanking the sweeping drive. There are many points of interest throughout, including the impressive wrought-iron entrance gates, a wild life pond and a stunning tree carving of a large eagle.
There is a delightful folly in the upper garden of stone and slate construction with decorative wrought-iron gates opening to a very pleasing and secluded sitting area bedecked in unusual and beautiful shell mosaic work designed and created by a renowned artist.
