About this property

  • Dolgelynen is a fantastic family home, believed to date back to the 18th century and combines together period charm with a contemporary extension designed by the renowned architect Michael Goulden. The house is finished to a very high standard and has been designed to not only fit in with the surrounding environment but to take advantage of the unspoilt southerly views.

    Most of the principle reception rooms and bedrooms are south facing to the front of the property and afford light and spacious accommodation set over two floors, perfect for both family living and entertaining. The flexibility of the rooms provide an opportunity for the new wing to be used as either a separate annexe or alternatively a B&B.

    Throughout Dolgelynen, there are a wealth of period features including deep stone walls, inglenook fireplaces, wooden beams together with a modern chrome, oak and glass staircase which blend together to form this unique and impressive property.

    There are three excellent sized receptions rooms and a light garden room which are all situated to the front of the property to enjoy the fantastic views.

    The sociable spacious kitchen breakfast room was designed by Kenton Jones and includes an oil fired range with electric hob, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. The breakfast room adjoins the kitchen for informal dining and is open to the eaves and has a double aspect with French doors leading out to an outdoor entertaining area.

    A versatile hobby room/work room and office space sits to the rear of the house and is a perfect space for anyone with artistic talents. Alternatively, it could be adapted to a living kitchen for anyone wishing to have a separate annexe.

    A utility room and cloakroom complete the accommodation downstairs.

    The first floor has six bedrooms, five of which enjoy the views to the front of the property over the valley. Indeed the principal bedroom has a large picture window, to enjoy the panorama and linking you to the outside. A family bathroom is well appointed and benefits from a separate shower, whilst the new extension has a shower room.


    Dolgelynen is accessed through electric gates, onto a long private driveway past a pool which is fed by natural springs and leads up to a generous parking area to the side of the property. To the right of the parking area is the substantial outbuildings which provide garaging, workshop and storage areas.

    Great thought has been given to the grounds which wrap around Dolgelynen and they have been landscaped to ensure that there is all year round colour and interest. As it is nestled into the hillside, terraces and seating areas that have been created to enjoy the setting and views. There is a paddock to one side of the property and three further paddocks above. The current vendors have added a track which gives vehicular access around the property. In all the grounds are believed to extend to 19.27 acres.
