A spacious four-bedroom property, superbly presented and forming part of Argoed Hall, a converted Grade II mansion with two acres of grounds and outstanding views over the River Dee Argoed Hall is a beautifully renovated Grade II listed Victorian mansion now comprising four individual homes. The entrance to 3 Argoed Hall is set to the front of the property and is the original entrance to Argoed Hall, above which is an imposing coat of arms. The vestibule has decorative tiled flooring and gives access to the inner entrance door, with feature leaded window, that opens into the impressive dining hall. The dining hall is a spacious reception room with feature mahogany fireplace surround, decorative ceiling mouldings, half panelled walls and doors leading to the kitchen/breakfast room and drawing room. The high quality kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted with solid wood cupboards with polished granite work surfaces including a central island unit, professional dual fuel Rangemaster and dual bowl Belfast sink. It has a delightful aspect over the front communal gardens. The utility room adjoins the kitchen and has points and space for a washing machine, and access to the downstairs cloakroom with w.c. The generously sized drawing room with feature rectangular window bay has wooden parquet flooring, decorative ceiling moulding and a marble and cast iron fireplace surround. Located within the dining hall, the balustrade mahogany staircase leads to a half landing, with access to a balcony with far reaching views, and proceeds to the first floor accommodation. The master bedroom suite has an en-suite shower room and benefits from views over the front gardens. The second bedroom has a delightful feature bay window opening on to a shared balcony, while the third bedroom has the benefit of dual aspects to the front and sides of Argoed Hall and a Juliette balcony. There is a further bedroom and a family bathroom. Outside Argoed Hall is set within a secluded location, screened to two sides by mature trees and banked land. It has stunning views over the River Dee and the Vale of Llangollen towards Dinas Bran Castle. The Hall is approached through a set of video-entry controlled wrought iron gates, leading to an ample and lit tarmacadam driveway and parking area. The unit has the benefit of four allocated car parking spaces. To the front of the property are the communal lawned gardens, bordered by shrubs and trees. A flagged pathway leads around to the rear of the property, branching left to the entrance of the Woodland walks and the former summerhouse site, and around the Hall to the right, where stunning views over the low wall cross the River Dee and towards Dinas Bran. Situation Argoed Hall lies nestled between the River Dee and the Llangollen canal, on the periphery of the village of Froncysyllte, near to the historic town of Llangollen. A former limestone quarrying village, Froncysyllte has a number of local amenities including a restaurant, public house, post office / general store, church, primary school and community centre. The village won the Welsh Community Spirit Village of the Year award 2008, but perhaps is most well-known for its world famous Male Voice Choir and the nearby Poncysyllte Aqueduct. The nearby market town of Llangollen offers a wider range of amenities, and also plays host to the International Eisteddfod. Further afield is the commercial, retail and leisure centre of historic Chester. Argoed Hall is ideally located for business centres within North and Mid Wales and has excellent road links to the Midlands and North West via the A5. Rail links are available from nearby Ruabon direct to Birmingham, and Chester offers a 2 hour (approx) intercity service to London. The property is also well situated for many leisure activities in the area such as walking along nearby Offa's Dyke or up to Dinas Bran Castle, golf at the Championship Vale of Llangollen golf club, or horse racing at Bangor-On-Dee and Chester. There are a number of well renowned schools within reach including The King's and Queen's schools at Chester, Ellesmere College at Ellesmere, and Moreton Hall and Packwood Haugh near Oswestry. Directions From Chester proceed in a south westerly direction along the A483 Expressway past Wrexham. Continue past the Llangollen A539 exit, following signs for the A5. Upon reaching the A5 roundabout, take the third exit towards Llangollen. Continue along this road for just over 2 miles, and shortly after passing St David's church on the left, take the right hand turn onto Gate Road. After approximately 0.2 miles the stone pillared entranceway to Argoed Hall will be on the left hand side, opposite the canal.
