Know the name? Of course you do – Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis is the man behind the Portmeirion village in North Wales, made famous by the 1960s cult TV series, The Prisoner. He did a lot more too, including this grade II-listed former youth hostel in Maeshafn, Denbighshire. Which just happens to be on the market.
There isn’t a lot of imagery for this sadly, so we’ll just have to go by the words of the agent. That pitches it as a ‘unique opportunity’ to grab a house in 5.5 acres of woodland, at the foot of Moel Findeg Mountain, nestled in the Clwydian Mountain Range.
That house is a wooden, single-story affair that was designed in 1931 and has a kitchen, lounge, three additional rooms and 21 ‘wall mounted bunks’. The original layout is pretty much as it was when designed, right down to the beamed ceiling, boarded walls and floor plus the washroom. So ou are buying a museum, if you like.
If you like the outdoors, £180,000 is the asking price.
