The Hermitage is a UNIQUE FIVE BEDROOMS, FIVE BATHROOMS detached Great II listed property located in a highly sought-after conservation area of the seaside town of Colwyn Bay. Conveniently positioned within walking distance to local amenities, primary and secondary schools, beach, promenade, railway station, and the prestigious private Rydal Penrhos school, the property offers luxury living by the sea with benefits of working from home, and yet is only a short commute to Chester (35 mins), Liverpool (45 mins), Manchester (1 Hr), as well as being within 2 Hrs 50 mins to London by train.
Built in 1893 by the renowned Chester architect John Douglas, the Hermitage is a superb example of his famous half-timbered vernacular architectural signature. Recently fully renovated to the highest standards and beautifully restored in keeping with the original architecture, the property provides plenty of character and a feel of period grandeur while offering all modern conveniences fit for 21st-century living.
The impressive 500 sq metres accommodation (approx. 5400 sqft) is well presented and extends over three floors offering ample living space. Through a leaded-glass front door, the hallway leads to three spectacular reception rooms with high ceilings and large double-glazed sandstone windows, making rooms exceptionally light and airy.
Straight off the hallway, a generously sized bay window study room provides enough space for two working desks and several bookshelves.
Across the hallway, the imposing living room with its marble fireplace and large bay windows is full of charm and character.
Further down the hallway, a grand sitting-diner reveals a huge open-plan living space with an original marble gas fireplace as a centrepiece and a Victorian ceiling arch separating the sitting and dining areas. The room enjoys a flood of daylight coming through large windows and a door to the adjoining conservatory, making it ideal for more formal and special occasions. All ground floor reception rooms and the hallway are laid down with hardwood flooring throughout creating a sense of continuity and seamless connection between different areas of the house.
The stylish Timeless-Classic kitchen-diner has an open-plan feel with plenty of light coming through its large windows and French doors to a courtyard. With high spec built-in cupboards, centre island, granite worktops, integrated fridge-freezers, dishwasher, and heated floors, the kitchen is designed to be the hub of the house for casual dining hospitality to family and guests.
Additionally, on the ground floor, there are WC, cloakroom, stairs going down to the wine cellar, and a separate utility room with yet more storage and a space for a free-standing washing machine and a tumble dryer.
Upstairs, there are five generous size double bedrooms with en-suites, a beautifully appointed family bathroom, and a large master bedroom with an adjoint dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath.
Outside, from the entrance gates on the side of the house, a driveway leads to a spacious double garage large enough to accommodate a car and a boat or a motorhome. The driveway additionally provides a parking area for six cars.
The property is occupying 1280 square metres (13778 sqft) corner plot surrounded by the original stone wall. With its wraparound landscaped mature gardens, border conifers, and fruit trees, the property offers a high degree of privacy. At the rear, in keeping with the original style of the house, a newly built conservatory and a handsome period outbuilding with an enclosed WC create a cosy courtyard for enjoying an outdoor sitting and Alfresco dining in the sun.
The Hermitage is a true architectural gem and one of the best examples of the successful transformation of a Victorian property with some basic utilities to today’s most desirable and ready to-move-into modern family home. The Hermitage offers an abundance of space, a wealth of heritage features, all expected mod cons, superb timeless interiors, and yet further opportunities to create additional working premises or extra living accommodation above the garage if required.
The property has been fully rewired to modern standards, while the gas central heating system with a split heating option to upper and lower floors, provides the most economical way to keep the entire house warm and cosy.
