In recent years the property has been comprehensively renovated and remodelled by the current owners and now offers spacious and superbly appointed accommodation well suited to a cross section of the market including the family buyer, or those wishing to move to a well connected rural setting with sufficient amenities to facilitate working from home. The overall presentation is light and airy and is finished to an exemplary standard which is evident in the internal specification which offers a blend of traditional and contemporary finishes with oak (oiled) doors to the ground floor rooms, boarded and slate floors, log burning stove, fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, high quality bathroom fitments, and a new heating system, controlled via a Nest thermostat. The property has also been re-wired. The main hall provides access to the everyday living space being the kitchen with open plan sitting and dining areas. At the working end of the room is a superbly fitted kitchen with range of wall and floor units incorporating cupboards and drawers beneath quartz work surfaces, a SMEG double oven, warming drawer and microwave oven, Hotpoint dishwasher, integrated full height AEG fridge and freezer, AEG hob, Grohe Red Duo boiling hot water mixer tap, and island unit with further cupboards and drawers and dining stools beneath solid oak work surface. The kitchen opens to the sitting room at the front, having stunning views across the gardens and, to the side, glazed doors open from the dining room to the rear seating and barbecue area which is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Returning to the entrance hall there is a snug sitting room with several windows overlooking the rear garden, a spacious laundry/boot room with plenty of storage, separate W.C., and steps down to an integral garage which accommodates a Worcester oil fired boiler with cylinder, and has a pair of electric up and over doors, and served with light and power. At the other end of the house is a staircase hall with additional W.C., lounge with some exposed stone walls, Morso wood burner and aspects to the front and rear, and access to a fifth bedroom which could also be used as a home office, having ethernet connection. This end of the house has the potential to be used as partially self contained accommodation if required by a dependent relative. At first floor level the accommodation is as comprehensive with 4 double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, all having views over adjoining land or open countryside. The master suite is particularly impressive with dressing room, en-suite shower room and the bedroom incorporates an extensive range of fitted wardrobes. Indeed, all bedrooms either include fitted wardrobes or have space for free-standing furniture, and the store room off bedroom two has plumbing in place for conversion to a shower room. LOCATION Fron Fawnog occupies a secluded and elevated, private position within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty having exceptional views over fields and to the Wirral beyond. Despite its rural setting, Fron Fawnog is convenient for the shops, cafes and restaurants of the market town of Mold, some 2 miles away, and also the historic town of Ruthin with its host of independent shops and eateries which is less than 10 miles away. The walled city of Chester offers a more comprehensive range of services together with several out of town retail parks, and can be reached in around 20 minutes. Schooling is well provided for locally with excellent state primary and secondary education in Mold, complemented by private schools in Ruthin and Chester. On the recreational front there are rugby, football, cricket and tennis clubs nearby together with the renowned Mold Golf Club situated just over a mile away. Directly from the property are wonderful opportunities for walking, cycling and running through stunning countryside. Loggerheads Country Park is within walking distance as is Moel Famau. COMMUNICATIONS For travel, the property occupies an enviable position, being within easy commuting distance of Chester and Liverpool with the A55 linking with the M53 and also the M56 for access across Cheshire to Manchester and the M6. For travel to London there is a 2 hour inter-city rail service from Chester to Euston, and Liverpool and Manchester are both served with international airports. OUTSIDE Fron Fawnog stands in a delightful woodland setting accessed via a sweeping tarmacadamed drive sheltered by a variety of mature trees. Slate steps rise to the front door with cedar surround and overhang with recessed LED lighting. Beside the house is a detached double garage (19'1" x 18'3") constructed of block with rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof, having an electric up and over door and served with light and power. Below the drive is an area of woodland, predominantly Scots pine, with lawns and a timber garden store. The garden extends to the lane to a stone wall and to the side is an orchard. Immediately next to the house is a further lawn with floral borders and on the easterly boundary a further parcel of woodland. To the rear and south west of the house is a wide Indian stone flagged terrace which extends along the width of the property and enjoys an open aspect across the gardens and neighbouring land at the rear, sheltered by mature trees including silver birch, oak and pine. The lawn rises to the west and extends to the boundary which is presently not delineated, instead being open to the adjoining field and over which Fron Fawnog has splendid views. DIRECTIONS From the edge of Mold on A494 Ruthin Road, proceed up the hill into Gwernymynydd, continuing through the Pelican crossing and after a further 200 yards take the right turn onto Hafod Road and signposted for the Plas Hafod Hotel. Continue past the hotel for approximately one third of a mile and on reaching the sharp left hand bend in the wooded area, continue for a further 50 yards and the drive for Fron Fawnog will be seen on the left hand side.
