Full description

Victoria Terrace is arguably the finest residential building in Beaumaris and occupies a prominent location overlooking the Menai Strait to the Snowdonia Range beyond and South to the Telford Suspension Bridge. Constructed in the early 1830s by York architects, Joseph Hansom and Edward Welch, the building was intended as the centerpiece of a plan to regenerate the declining port of Beaumaris, by creating a fashionable resort. The terrace was originally sub-divided into 10 dwellings
which were let to holidaymakers and middle-class professionals. However in 1937 it was refurbished by Colwyn Foulkes, the architect responsible for Colwyn Bay and with the exception of No 1, was converted into 18 apartments. That configuration remains today with No 1 being the only town house within the terrace and is reputedly the only Grade I listed town house in Wales.

Description - Victoria Terrace is a particularly fine example of Regency architecture and is fully
deserving of its Grade I listing. It is described as a well preserved late Georgian terrace
of national importance and a vital contribution to the historical integrity of the Beaumaris
seafront. The construction is of an attractive dressed stone with elegant sash windows,
arched at ground floor level under a hipped slate roof with central gable. No 1 forms the
southernmost part of Victoria Terrace having a particularly light and pleasant aspect
across The Green and the Menai Strait. The quality and condition of the interior is as
impressive as the buildings exterior having been superbly restored by the present
owners. From a flagged path stone steps lead up to the front door, with Georgian fanlight
above, to an attractive vestibule with intricate plaster moulded ceiling. From there on
the accommodation is arranged over five floors, three of which are served by the most
elegant turned staircase with mahogany hand rail rising from the reception hall, beneath
a superb cupola.
Dining Room

Location - Beaumaris is widely regarded as one of the most popular seaside towns on Anglesey and provides an
excellent range of local services for everyday needs with boutique shops, restaurants, pubs, hotels,
chandlery and garage. For the sailing enthusiast Beaumaris is home to the Royal Anglesey Yacht Club and
there are several other recreational facilities nearby to include golf and tennis. There is also superb walking
around Angleseys coastal path and in the Snowdonia National Park. Road communications are excellent
with the A55 some 7 miles distant facilitating easy access across coastal North Wales to Cheshire and the
national motorway network. For travel to further afield there is an Inter City rail service from Bangor to
London Euston via Crewe.

Outside - There is a small garden to the front, open yard and the use of the
large walled courtyard garden to the rear. Two Storerooms and
Boiler Room. To the side of number 1 is space suitable in terms of
size, for parking a vehicle.
