Acces Statement

The chalet/bungalow began as an artist's studio in 1926 at the bottom of the garden to the main house. The garden runs alongside the River Colwyn in a steeply sloping rocky valley. The studio was of prefabricated construction built on two levels due to the slope.
In 1950 a brick built bedroom wing was added on a third level when it became a seperate property. Access is now from the opposite end of the site. From the gravel surfaced parking area just inside the entrance gates, there is a 50yds path to the kitchen front door, part tarmaced but made uneven by the roots of the big trees probably not suitable for the elderly or disabled. A substantial part of the garden is semi-wild with unmade sloping paths. However, the old main path is stone paved with steps which can be slippery in the wet. There is a pond, now a bog garden, and numerous drainage ditches. The boulder strewn river bed is wild and unfenced and while the river does not flood, when in spate with the run off from Snowdon, it can be dangerous.
At the kitchen/front door there are two steps up to a level terrace and a step at the threshold. The kitchen and bathroom which opens off at the same level have been recently re-fitted. The bathroom includes a broom cupboard, bath with grab handles, shower over with hinged side screen, small pedestal hand basin and close coupled low level WC.
There are three steps down to the living room from the kitchen. A small study on the same level opens off the living room via a narrow door. The two compact double bedrooms are accessed from the living room via a small lobby with three steps down to two splayed doors.
Bedroom 1 is just large enough to contain a full size double bed with access to bedside tables, dressing table, wardrobe and WC. Bedroom 2 ditto but with compact shower and WC off.
There are three steps down from the living room to a small conservatory with a further three steps down to a paved terrace and lawn looking south over the river.
