Tan Y Bryn was once a Sea Captain’s House and one of the most impressive in the village! Constructed of solid stone under a pitched slated roof it was a handsome home filled with Georgian period features, designed with spacious principal rooms. Built in 1822 the house abutted a small weaver’s cottage which dated back to the 1700’s and was later incorporated. The ancient weaver’s dwelling is still in use today with the inglenook fireplace housing a wood burner, enclosed by the original solid stone walls and is very much enjoyed as a cosy study. The detailed and interesting history of this unique property can be found on the following website: bit.ly/tanybrynnewport
Over a four year labour of love, the current owner has completely restored the house after it fell into a state of disrepair. Keen to retain the original features and characterful charm of a home with such provenance, each replacement piece or feature item was carefully sourced from reclamation yards and antique shops around the UK to ensure harmony when blending period pieces with modern day design and comfort. The result is a house that has been beautifully renovated with modern bath and shower rooms, a new kitchen, gas central heating and designer radiators, yet still filled with the charm of yesteryear. Period features include: pitch pine floorboards and doors, sash windows, Victorian fireplaces, exposed beams and stonework, patterned encaustic tiled floors, stained glass windows and leaded panels, as well as ornate plaster cornicing to the sitting room ceiling.
