Escape to your own woodland and smallholding on a Welsh hillside

The auction of a Welsh smallholding is giving property buyers the opportunity to escape to the country and live the good life.

With half an acre of landscaped gardens and seven acres of woodland, Craig Yn Sholyn, Ffordd Bryniau, Prestatyn is being sold by SDL Auctions North West at its next Manchester auction on Thursday 10 October, with a *guide price of £225,000+.

Andy Thompson, head of auctions North West, says it’s a dream buy for anyone who loves the seclusion of rural living.

“This is a real ‘get away from it all’ property, which is a registered smallholding so offers a host of opportunities for those with equestrian interests or who wish to raise livestock. You have your own haven of seven and a half acres of mountainous land and woodland, on a hillside overlooking open countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It even has sea views – what more could you ask from a rural retreat?”

Being a bungalow, the property, which requires some upgrading, offers versatile living accommodation which could be reconfigured to suit the new owner’s requirements.

It currently features an entrance hall, dining kitchen, utility room, two reception rooms, a lean-two garden room. There are two bedrooms – one with en suite – plus a further room which could be used as a bedroom or additional reception room/study and a bathroom.

The property sits in half an acre of secluded landscaped gardens which include a private driveway, parking for several vehicles, a large patio and seating area, ponds and several outhouses.

Andy added: “It’s an extremely deceptive property which offers so much more than it appears on first glance. It really needs to be viewed to appreciate its scope and all the potential it offers.”

The idyllic location is ideal for those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Ffordd Bryniau is a quiet road leading out of the village of Meliden, Denbighshire. It is close to Offa’s Dyke long-distance path and just two miles from the beach and seaside town of Prestatyn, which offers supermarkets and amenities as well as tourist attractions. Meliden itself has a primary school, pub, grocery store, café and health facilities at the local community centre.

Transport links are good, with the A55 North Wales Expressway less than a 15-minute drive away, providing links to the wider motorway network.

Craig Yn Sholyn, Ffordd Bryniau, Prestatyn is due to be sold by SDL Auctions North West at the AJ Bell Stadium, Manchester, on Thursday 10 October.
