6 bedroom manor house for sale

Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales


Property Description

Full description

1826 by Thomas Telford rising in the near distance and being gloriously flood-lit at night. This elegant Victorian period residence has been lovingly restored by the present owners who has not only preserved the grandeur of the house but has also added a modern and contemporary feel to a number of rooms especially the stunning handmade kitchen and luxury bathrooms. Much time and expense has obviously been lavished on the restoration with comfortable and roomy accommodation on offer.

Nestled amongst the mature garden grounds, there are plenty of outdoor areas to entertain family and friends. The views alone will captivate any visitor and keep them occupied while cocktails are prepared! The accommodation itself includes three large reception/function rooms all of which have fine views of the Strait and the impressive Telford suspension bridge and four of the six bedrooms also enjoy a waterside aspect. The master bedroom (a splendid room) has a dressing room and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. There are 2 further bathrooms, cloakroom, office/study and music room.

Telford House is situated in a prime location and close to all the facilities nearby. To name a few: there are the excellent road networks nearby together with railway links in Bangor, a major university, fantastic shopping and a wide choice of schools. The Isle of Anglesey now boasts a Royal connection with the Royal newly weds now resident on the island. Notable too is the huge investment being ploughed into the area creating realistic employment opportunities for many years to come. The RAF base on the island also has regular commercial/business flights to Cardiff, opening up even more possibilities and business opportunities.

On the recreation front, there’s sailing clubs, fishing trips and sea cruises, a Victorian pier at Bangor and Anglesey has many fine beaches and coves as well as a number of nature reserves on the island, not forgetting that Bangor lies within striking distance of the magnificent Snowdonia National Park. This renowned mountain range is of course home to Wales’ and England’s highest mountain but also has magnificent lakes and waterfalls – it has inspired many an artist and was the training ground for the team of mountaineers who successfully scaled Mount Everest in 1953!

Entrance Vestibule
Your eye can’t help but be drawn to the original mosaic tiled flooring and high ceiling.

Main Reception Hall

The sash windows with wood panelling beneath provide fantastic Menai Strait views as well as those of the Telford suspension bridge. Incorporated within this room is the Sun Lounge/Dining Area that juts out from the lounge overlooking the garden and with impressive views – you won’t get much better than this! There is solid wood flooring, 2 contemporary wall mounted radiators and French doors opening out onto the patio.

Feature open fireplace with a slate hearth, polished marble surround and mantle with brass insert, high coved ceilings and pendants.

A contemporary room with a real quality feel – handmade kitchen units in attractive light coloured Maple with beautiful black granite worktops incorporating 2 inset circular sink units & a curved breakfast bar. Downlights are built-in to the matching wall cupboards. A modern ‘Britannia’ stainless steel double oven cooking range holds centre stage with a large marble splashback. An American style fridge freezer sits in the corner with wine rack over. Rustic slate slabs to the floor were painstakingly lifted from the cellar and lovingly installed to the kitchen area with under-floor heating beneath – very cosy! Inset downlights to the ceiling. Double timber doors open out to the patio at the side.

Finished off in a contemporary style – offering space for many uses and currently laid out as a small fitness room together with a hallway, two rooms off and the original pantry. There are downlights to ceiling and lights built-in to the walls at head and ankle height. The pantry has brick and slate shelving creating a traditional cold room which would be ideal as a wine cellar. One of the rooms acts as a utility/boiler room housing the gas central heating boiler and having cupboards and a work surface.

First Floor Landing
Beautiful and spacious landing that could be utilised as a quiet reading area as ample light pours in from the 3 sash windows to the rear. Hallways lead off to the bedrooms.

Master Bedroom

There is also a Dressing Room with 2 large built-in high quality wardrobes and a step down to: En-Suite Bathroom having a luxurious Victorian style free standing bath with raised back and folded edges.

On the approach there is a large parking area for several vehicles. From the parking area there are two pathways that wind their way through the tiered garden to the main entrance and patio. The main pathway has a sheltered covering offering protection from the elements on an inclement day! This part of the garden is tiered and home to various shrubs and mature evergreens. To the side lies a large flagged patio area with various pathways that lead off to different parts of the gardens where there are various lawned areas – whilst all around you are those wonderful views!

Within the main garden there are mature fruit trees, fir trees and a grand Oak tree. The patio area leads directly to the front of the property which becomes a wide paved pathway/patio area stretching across the entire front of the property enjoying fantastic Menai Strait views – a place that will be difficult to drag yourself away from and a great place to entertain al-fresco on a balmy summer evening! The lawned garden then drops steeply down towards the banks of the Menai Strait where there is a slate gravelled pathway.
