A BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED 19TH CENTURY STONE FARMHOUSE OF CONTEMPORARY NEW ENGLAND THEME, SET IN APPROXIMATELY 3 ACRES OF GROUNDS TO INCLUDE A PADDOCK WITH FORMER STABLES. The property benefits from Planning Permission to extend and the accommodation briefly comprises: Entrance hall, living room with sun lounge taking full advantage of the views, kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, utility room, inner hall, cloakroom, study, sitting room. First floor Principal bedroom with ensuite shower room, three further bedrooms and family bathroom. Gravelled driveway with parking and turning area. Timber and felt barn, sun terrace with water feature and barbecue area, natural hillside gardens with trees and shrubs. Paddock with former stables.

Hen Efail is situated in a tranquil rural location on the east of the Isle of Anglesey above the village of Llangoed, being some 3 miles to the north of Beaumaris. Occupying an elevated position, the property adjoins an area of outstanding beauty overlooking open countryside with views of the sea. Set back from the lane and approached via a gravelled drive, Hen Efail enjoys a private position against the hillside.
The property is just over 1 mile from the village of Llangoed which has a local store and post office with more comprehensive facilities in Beaumaris including pubs, restaurants, banks and high street retailers. There are numerous beaches nearby and a sailing club at Beaumaris, numerous golf courses and extensive mountain walks. Despite its rural location the area is extremely accessible via the A55 Expressway allowing for easy travel along the North Wales coast to Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.

Hen Efail is believed to date from the early 19th Century and is contructed principally from stone with Canadian cedar cladding under a slate roof. Of late the property has been extended and modernised thruoghout, offering light and airy accommodation with a contemporary New England theme. The finish is to an extremely high specification with Chesney style stone fireplaces, limestone flooring, mood lighting, Martin Moore kitchen, Samuel Heath bathroom fittings, Forbes Lomax light fittings and bespoke built-in cabinets, displays and book shelving by Edsons of Nottingham.

Across the front of the house are three principal reception rooms, taking full advantage of the views. Planning Permission has recently been granted to add a dining room and library/family room beyond and kitchen incorporating a master bedroom with balcony and ensuite bathroom at first floor level which if implemented will give rise to an overall floor area of approximately 5,5oo sq.ft.
