Fancy a retreat in the woods in a sought-after corner of North Wales? You might be interested in this three-bedroomed wooden chalet in Llanbedrog, Gwynedd, North Wales.
We think (judging by some of the interior features) that it was built in the 1970s. We know for sure that it is part of a community called Penarwel, which is part of 26 similar properties built in the grounds of an old manor house. Once you buy one, you become part owner and shareholder of the community, essentially deciding how the place is run and financed. Yes, this really is back to nature communal living. Sort of.
If you know the area, you’ll know that Llanbedrog is best-known for having a National Trust beach and being a short drive from uber-hip Abersoch, home of the Cheshire set for the weekends and the summer holidays. So with that in mind, this might well be something of a bargain.
For your money, you get that midcentury-style chalet with three bedrooms, an open-plan lounge and dining area, kitchen, lounge area, inner lobby area, shower room and plenty of outside space – enough for four cars and some storage space too.
Yes, plenty of updating needed. But once you’ve done that, this could be a cool retreat for many years for you and your family. Offers of around £120,000 being looked for.
