DESCRIPTION Tan y Coed occupies a peaceful, rural setting on the edge of Pwllglas having an elevated position with lovely views across its own land extending across the Vale of Clwyd. Originally an outbuilding to the neighbouring farmhouse, Tan y Coed was created following a conversion and extension of the building in 992 by the current owners creating a superb family home Tan y Coed is constructed predominately of Welsh stone with rendered elevations to the first-floor level, with the accommodation arranged over 2 storeys, having the benefit of oil-fired central heating. The property is approached off the lane via a splayed entrance and continues onto a graveled track which divides the two fields. The drive continues across a cattle grid onto a tarmacadam parking and turning area, off which is a detached double garage constructed of block under a slate roof with two up and over doors and separate personnel door to the rear. From the garage a raised patio leads to the front door from which there is a pleasant aspect over the paddock across the vale. The front door opens into a porch and on into the hall which has oak flooring and from which all principal rooms are accessed. To the right is the dining room which is well proportioned with aspect over the front garden and extends through into the sitting room which has triple aspect including French doors to the front patio and a wood burning stove to one corner of the room. Beyond the stairs is a useful study which has dual aspect with French doors to rear garden and a bank of fitted shelving/cupboards. To the left of the staircase hall is the kitchen which has fitted wall and base units under polished granite work surfaces having an integrated Bosch dishwasher, twin stainless steel sink units with drainer, Neff oven & microwave and 4 ring induction hob and also benefits from underfloor heating.

OUTSIDE The gardens and grounds at Tan y Coed extend to 10.5 acres (4.24 ha) and comprise a combination of lawned gardens, paddock land and woodland. The drive splits the two paddocks which are stockproof to the perimeter but relatively open between the two. At present the paddock land is used for grazing by a local farmer but would be ideally suited to those wishing to keep horses and whilst there is no stabling or equestrian facilities in situ there is plenty of space for such, subject to the availability of planning permission. A cattle grid divides the paddock land from the property's private garden which is bordered by beech hedgerows and post and rail fencing. To the left of the drive is the double garage with utility area and woodstore and adjacent to which a gently sloping lawned garden which leads around the rear of the garage. To the front of the property is a large terrace with seating and barbecue areas which take full advantage of the afternoon/evening sun as well as the aspect towards to Clwydian Range. The terrace leads around the south elevation to the rear of the property which comprises a larger lawned garden which is relatively flat being bordered by flowering shrub borders and woodland beyond. Against the north elevation is a series of smaller areas enclosed by hedgerows which comprise a vegetable garden, raised beds, polytunnel and lawns with small pond and seating area. Beyond the formal garden to the rear is the woodland which extends to approximately 3.5 acres and is designated as semi-ancient natural woodland having many specimen trees within to include oak, cherry, ash, sycamore and birch which were thinned out in 2016 and are underplanted with bluebells. Within the woodland is a spring which feeds down into the rear garden beside the lawn and vegetable garden. PROPERTY INFORMATION Address: Tan y Coed, Pwllglas, Nr Ruthin, Denbighshire, LL15 2PE.
