Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Bryn Aber is a striking detached walled house standing on about 3.86 acres of its own grounds by the waterside in the beautiful Cemlyn Bay. Cemlyn Bay is one of the most important nature reserves in this part of north Wales and has been designated as both an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest.
The dwelling, whose origins are believed to date back to the early 20th century, was purchased by the renowned aviator Captain Vivian Hewitt in 1930. Rather uniquely, Captain Hewitt built a high wall around the entire property giving it a fortress like appearance and an inevitable air of mystery. In reality, Hewitt was a passionate amateur ornithologist who built the wall as windbreak in order to attract all forms of wild birds to his grounds.
After his death, the property was left to his housekeeper and her family but sadly, it has been neglected over recent years, leaving it in need of a great deal of internal and external attention.
The well-proportioned accommodation includes on the ground floor an Entrance Hall, 4 Spacious Reception Rooms, a Large Conservatory and a Fitted Kitchen with an adjoining Utility Room. 4 Double Bedrooms and a Family Bathroom with a separate WC.

LOCATION Lying in an idyllic coastal and rural setting in the lovely Cemlyn Bay, Bryn Aber is opportunely placed for the many of the other alluring bays, sandy beaches and rustic attractions to be found on the North Anglesey coastline. Easy access is enabled via the A55 expressway, which can be found about 12 miles from the property, allowing rapid commuting throughout the island, to the mainland, passing by the acclaimed University City of Bangor and onwards to Chester, ultimately linking up with the UK motorway network. The conveniently placed towns of Amlwch & Holyhead and their neighbouring communities ensure that with a range of shops, services and recreational facilities, your essential needs are well catered for. Additionally, the port town of Holyhead offers daily sailings to and from Ireland and a first-rate intercity train service.
