If you’re after a definition of the term ‘fixer upper’ – just take a look at this particular property.

A farmhouse up for sale for £200,000 has a great location and bags of potential, but it’ll need a whole lot of work to turn it into the perfect home.

The Grade II listed property sits on the edge of Snowdonia National Park, and has views of one of Britain’s highest peaks.

It’s surrounded by half an acre of land in Betws Garmon, North Wales.

So that’s the great location bit sorted. Now on to the parts that need some TLC.

The property is officially on Save Britain’s ‘at risk’ register, meaning it really isn’t in the best shape.

But now up for sale, the house is ready to have a transformation that makes the most of its history and original features, while making it a dreamy country cottage.

Some of the original features buyers may want to keep include flagstone kitchen floors and a spacious lounge with an original iron fireplace.

There’s also space for three bedrooms upstairs as well as a bathroom, and the outbuildings outside could be transformed into extra living space.

If you’re after even more space, 11.6 acres of land around the property is also up for sale, for a guide price of £110,000.

The home also benefits from mains electricity and has its own private water supply from a spring in the woodland.

And it’s a glorious space for history buffs, as the building dates back to around 1850.

Estate agents Dafydd Hardy said: ‘Dating back to the 18th Century this imposing Grade II Listed Farmhouse enjoys the most beautiful setting, surrounded by the stunning Snowdonia countryside.’

We reckon this could be the perfect home for someone keen to escape the country and take on a proper project.
