14 Rumdewan is a beautiful period house largely constructed of sandstone under a pitched slate roof offering outstanding family accommodation of a very high quality. The house offers comfortable and flexible accommodation over two levels and it has a charming and comfortable feel throughout with an excellent standard of presentation and many delightful period details.
A central hallway lies at the heart of the house and leads off to a spacious lounge with an open fireplace as well as a living room with a stove. Also situated off the hallway is a master bedroom (with a walk in dressing room) and bedroom 4/dining room with a flame effect gas fire and a door leading into the kitchen. A corridor leads off the hallway to a rear entrance, utility room, bathroom and newly installed family kitchen with an archway leading though to a sunroom with glazed doors opening out to a rear terrace.
The first floor offers two spacious bedrooms (one with an en suite WC), which have dormer windows with outstanding views out over the surrounding countryside.
