Plas Bodfa dates from the 1920’s albeit with substantial later additions and is constructed of stone and brick with cream painted roughcast rendered elevations under an unusual green slate roof. It has an attractive front façade with symmetrical bow windows either side of the first floor balcony and main entrance, similar in appearance to many buildings designed by Clough Williams-Ellis of Portmeirion fame.
The property has had many different uses over the years both in the residential and commercial sectors. It was originally built as a private country house at which time being far smaller than existing. The property was subsequently run as a steakhouse restaurant, a residential care home and more recently has been the offices and production facility of Elizabeth Bradley Designs Ltd with a busy tea rooms and gift shop open to the public daily.
Today Plas Bodfa lends itself to a variety of uses, subject to obtaining the requisite planning consents, either similar to the above or perhaps with residential holiday units, as a restaurant/gastro pub or spa retreat. Alternatively the entire site could be redeveloped with the house sub-divided into luxury apartments and further development on the gardens and footprint of the large greenhouses. Indeed it is rare to find a property with such potential and occupying a peaceful location with such magnificent panoramic views.
Having formerly been used for commercial purposes, the house does require a certain amount of upgrading both to the outside and interior, but does offer extremely spacious and adaptable accommodation arranged over two floors, part configured as a self-contained flat. The rooms in the original house are well proportioned with high ceilings and large windows to take advantage of the wonderful view. Several original features remain including two impressive slate fireplaces, an Arts & Crafts galleried oak staircase and large stained glass windows. The various extensions have created a series of useful ancillary rooms suitable for many different uses or simply as extensive storage and garaging. In addition there is a detached lodge which could be let to derive a useful income or alternatively occupied by a dependent relative or staff.
Plas Bodfa occupies an enviable hillside position above the village of Llangoed, some 2 miles to the north of Beaumaris. The property is surrounded by open countryside and enjoys a wonderful south easterly aspect over the adjoining fields, with a panoramic vista of the Menai Strait and Snowdonia Range stretching from The Great Orme all the way down to the Yr Eifls along the Lleyn Peninsula.
The village has a local shop, post office, pub and primary school with a more comprehensive range of services available in the castle town of Beaumaris which includes a parade of shops, pubs, restaurants, churches, chandlery, petrol station and post office. The university city of Bangor is 8 miles away with choice of supermarkets, other retail outlets and railway stationOn the recreational front, Anglesey is renowned for its attractive coastline with numerous sandy beaches many of which are within close proximity of Plas Bodfa. There is golf at Henllys and Baron Hill, miles of walking inland or around the Coastal Path and boating and fishing on the Menai Strait, with Beaumaris home to the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club.
Despite the property’s rural location it is well served by roads with the A55 facilitating easy access across coastal North Wales to Cheshire and linking with the national motorway network. There is a direct rail service from Bangor and Holyhead to London Euston, a commercial air-line from Valley to Cardiff and ferry services from Holyhead to Ireland.
The property is approached through a splayed stone entrance and over a tarmacadamed tree-lined drive flanked by an orchard, lawn with floral borders and a variety of flowering trees and shrubs. The Lodge is sited at the entrance and there is a flight of steps leading up to the front door. It is constructed of stone with rendered elevations under a slate roof and is served with gas-fired central heating. The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall, sitting room with open stone fireplace, fitted kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. It has a private garden and patio area with views.
The drive leads to a forecourt on the south and east fronts of the house with parking areas for several vehicles together with a double garage of timber construction. Beyond is a large vegetable garden adjacent to which is a series of greenhouses abutting the rear boundary which is a high stone wall. The greenhouses have heating, watering and ventilation systems along with an underground well.
A stone retaining wall around the parking area with flight of steps leads down to a well established lower garden with circular flower beds, lawns and borders.
