Thought to date from the early nineteenth century and certainly among the earliest brick built houses in Beaumaris, 1 Bulkeley Place cannot escape your notice in its resplendent Georgian exterior as it rubs shoulders with Beaumaris castle no less – standing adjacent to the late 13th century castle and overlooking the town's northern castle court, you can almost sense and taste the history which will have passed its threshold.

This splendid Grade II Listed three storey end terrace property offers space in abundance and comes with a commercial unit to the ground floor with spacious accommodation, cellar and significantly its own private rear courtyard with private parking facility and garage – a tangible resource that should not to be overlooked, proving to be a real asset. The property retains its symmetrical and attractive Georgian layout, its essential character intact and very much evident throughout, and with its striking exterior, contributes significantly to the setting of this historical town and the integrity of Castle Street. Internal features which catch the eye are the original timber sash windows, covings and exposed floorboards to a number of rooms. Castle Street presents an eclectic mix of architecture in a designated conservation area – stepping back to look at the frontage enables one to acknowledge the finer detail and aesthetic appeal.

The building has up until recent times been utilised for commercial purposes to the ground floor, a spacious retail premises with storage facility which interestingly dates backs a number of decades. This retail space consists of three rooms with planning permission in place to increase the retail space by a further 25%, perfect for a number of commercial ventures, but more significantly, A3 planning (catering) will undoubtedly increase its profitability and earning potential. After all, Beaumaris is a major tourist destination and home to a range of varied culinary establishments and independent trading outlets which bring life to this fascinating coastal town.

The current layout of the first and second floors is purely residential and makes for a handsome home too! The present owner has made sure that the accommodation is presented to its utmost and that the character remains intact whilst proving functional to suit today's lifestyle.
The blend of old and new is very complimentary with some nice touches throughout, and there's no denying that each room is of generous proportions. It's good to know that from each subsequent floor, the views of the castle are enhanced whilst there are glimpses of the Menai Strait and Snowdonia which hints at just what a wonderful location Beaumaris occupies on the Isle of Anglesey.

The accommodation has a certain formal feel according to the dining room with its arched entrance and column radiator, yet there's a definite homely feel that cannot be overstated. The kitchen will surely be the hub of this fine home and comes with polished granite worktops whilst oak flooring features through much of the first floor.

The master bedroom is also a highlight with its dual aspect, exposed beam feature and of course the rolled top bath –with dressing room, there's no denying it definitely grabs your attention. The main bathroom has recently been updated and features a pleasing contemporary suite.

A further point of interest is a section of the building located to the rear – this part of the property, currently undergoing some renovation is essentially two storeys and has its own separate access off the side street and therefore is ripe for conversion as residential accommodation/holiday let – subject to planning consents and approvals – thereby furthering this property's earning potential.

Situation
Beaumaris is a town most noted for its Edwardian castle, being located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the shores of the Menai Strait, encompassing much of the coastline that stretches to Penmon lighthouse and beyond, enhanced by the presence of the Snowdonia Mountains on the mainland which creates a dramatic backdrop to say the least.

Beaumaris is most certainly a pretty town - a must on the tourist trail and enjoys a wide array of eclectic shops, a variety of restaurants and pubs that range from fine dining to fish & chips – why not try the award winning Midland Tapas and Wine Bar, or endless flavours of ice cream at Red Boat, spend some time browsing at the quaint Janet Bell gallery with original works inspired by the North Wales landscape or kit yourself out with individual apparel at Fatface - there really is something for everyone. Beaumaris, which means 'beautiful marsh', sits on the banks of the Menai Strait with its striking Georgian frontage, its promenade and pier from where there are superb views across the water towards the dramatic mountains of Snowdonia. This historic town is situated towards the south easterly corner of the island and is home to the last Edwardian castle to be built in Wales. Full of history, the old Gaol, the Courthouse and the iconic Castle are sure to fascinate all the family - the site for the last of his 'iron ring' castles dating back to 1295.

With plenty of fine beaches and coves in the vicinity together with excellent road links and great places to shop at Menai Bridge and the city of Bangor, the area could be just what you are looking for. There is much to enjoy in and around the town with quaint streets to explore. Beaumaris retains a sense of history, values its cultural importance whilst at the same time, embracing change.
