There's no denying that whoever originally built this fine residence knew exactly where to get the best views – perched in an elevated position within the sought after location of Penmaen Park, Bryn Onnen commands spectacular coastal views which can be enjoyed from all rooms along the front elevation, overlooking Conwy Bay and the Lavan Sands with Ynys Seiriol (Puffin Island) and Penmon Point with its lighthouse in the distance – now that's a scene worth waking up to.
Bryn Onnen is a splendid example of a Detached Victorian Residence which stands within its own generous mature garden grounds with a pillared sweeping driveway providing a fitting entrance to such a grand home. It appears that the property dates from 1878 (based on the emblem by the main entrance) and exhibits all the typical hallmarks of the period with generously proportioned rooms, high corniced ceilings, deep bay sash windows, original fireplaces and a jaw dropping reception hall (with matching galleried landing). The hall really is a sight to behold with its ornate decorative tiled floor and impressive staircase – it was often a measure of your status in life, the grander your entrance hall!
Whilst the principal accommodation, laid out over two floors, is generous to say the least, there is also a highly useable basement consisting of six separate rooms no less and perfect for use as a workshop, games room, wine cellar or for any other use you care to mention.
Bryn Onnen would undoubtedly make a fine family home but could also offer the discerning purchaser so much more.
You could most certainly run a business from here, however it's worth noting that the present owner has, for a number of years, cleverly utilised several rooms to provide five studio apartments complete with kitchenette facilities (admittedly, these do require updating), thereby generating a steady income whilst still enjoying separate owners' accommodation.
The potential to create a boutique Bed & Breakfast business or indeed self-contained holiday let accommodation is tangible and definitely an exciting prospect – may be subject to planning consents and approvals – after all, North Wales is an ever growing tourist destination what with coastal attractions right on your doorstep not to mention the rugged beauty of Snowdonia.
The accommodation as a whole has been sympathetically modernised down through the years (there's scope for further improvements), creating a comfortable space in which to live whilst retaining original elements so that the heritage of the residence is not forgotten.
The living room now sports a wood burning stove and French doors whilst the traditional kitchen is home to a grand Aga range (converted to modern gas). There's mains gas central heating to the owners accommodation and electric storage heating to the studio apartments.
Externally, the driveway provides plentiful off road parking and turning space, a garage is also provided, being tucked away to the rear whilst the gardens offer a host of mature decorative plants, trees and shrubs which add colour and form throughout the seasons.
Llanfairfechan is a picturesque village located along the North Wales coast. The village is sandwiched between the wooded foothills of the Snowdonia National Park and the beautiful coastline. Llanfairfechan offers a range of amenities with a good number of independent shops and businesses trading from attractive traditional shop frontages and includes a library, medical centre, primary school and pubs. The promenade and seafront is popular with locals and visitors alike with café's, leisure facilities, a boating pond and sailing club. There is also a golf course, mainline railway station, regular bus service and the A55 expressway for your convenience. The coastal path also allows for the enjoyment of the surroundings passing through a nature reserve with bird watching facilities whilst there's direct access into the Snowdonia Mountains too. The city of Bangor to the west is well known for its university attracting students from across the UK and beyond. It has a wide range of shopping outlets, supermarkets and out of town shopping facilities and Victorian pier.
The tourism industry in Wales has been estimated to have an annual turnover of £4.8 billion (wales.gov 2017), and this figure is growing year on year with North Wales being 'go-to' tourist destination. The area has been voted fourth-best region in the world by the Lonely Planet guide and is the UK's only destination to appear on this privileged list. The rugged scenery is world famous, and with new adventure attractions, such as Surf Snowdonia, Zip World and Bounce Below attracting visitors from all over the UK, it's no surprise Wales proves so popular.
From our Bangor office, follow the A5 along Beach Road out of the city and continue towards the Llandegai roundabout at junction 11 of the A55 expressway. Join the A55 here and head east towards Llanfairfechan. On reaching junction 15 (roundabout) take the exit right and immediately left onto Penmaenmawr Road. After just a short distance, take the first right turning into Penmaen Park (signposted as a no-through road) and follow the road up the hill bearing left at the fork and continue to where the road levels out - the entrance to Bryn Onnen will be seen on your right hand side, the second to last property.
