Overview

Picturesque Regency house in a lovely secluded setting in a remote part of Denbighshire. Welsh scholars William Owen Pughe  and son Aneurin Owen, assembled the Mysevin Manuscripts,  (housed in National Library of Wales).

They owned the Mysevin farmland but lived at neighbouring property,Tyn Y Gyrt.  Family squabbles led to the main house at Mysevin being built. In 1976 the Kerr-Wilson family purchased the property from Churchill Owen's estate.

The house is  situated on a wooded hillside over looking lawned gardens, a little rose garden, interesting herbaceous borders running down to the Afon (river) Ystrud. To the rear of the house is a green bank including white garden and ornamental woodland garden.  The garden is the essence of peace and serenity, with rare plants and a famed, recently created shell house by Blott Kerr-Wilson.

This property is viewable only through Invitation to View
