A modern home built for fine living, with enough bedrooms for a small army, fabulous sea and mountain views, and a separate 18th-century cottage
If you imagine spending long summers sitting out on a terrace with the world beneath your feet, then this luxury Anglesey home might take your fancy.
Coed y Berclas is designed for enjoyment and indulgence, with a large slate terrace at the front of the property overlooking the Menai Strait to the mountains of Snowdonia beyond.
Six of the seven en-suite bedrooms also benefit from this spectacular view. The two on the ground floor have sliding doors leading out to the terrace, and those on the lower ground floor access the lawn beneath. The bedrooms on the top floor, meanwhile, each have four Velux windows to take in the light and the vista.
The main reception, dining room and kitchen – all of which have solid oak floors – are situated on the ground floor, while on the first floor sits a large library.
To add to the feeling of spaciousness inside, many of the rooms are connected by glazed double doors. And if you’re one of those families where someone’s always cold, while another’s sweltering in T-shirt and shorts, you may appreciate the fact that all rooms in the main house have underfloor heating with individual temperature controls.
From a central unit in the main house, you can also control the temperature for The Cottage – a separate three-bedroom home that comes as part of Coed y Berclas. Unlike the modern main house, this has a cosy, traditional feel.
Originally a farmhouse, the building dates back to the 18th century and still retains its original character.
It has underfloor heating in the lounge and dining areas, and has three bedrooms and a shower room. The current owners let it out as a holiday cottage.
In total, the property comes with around 3.5 acres of land, which mostly slopes down in a south-easterly direction, ensuring it captures plenty of sunshine.
There’s a lawn with a small pond in front of the house. Behind the grassed area is a large wood, which extends down to the main road at the bottom of the hill. There’s also a stone building which can be used as a workshop or a studio, and plenty of space to park several vehicles.
Coed y Berclas feels very out the way, but is actually close to plenty of amenities. The popular towns of Beaumaris and Menai Bridge are both close by, while Bangor, on the mainland, and the A55 North Wales Expressway are within 15 minutes’ drive.
If you’re looking for a luxury coastal lifestyle, combined with glamour, a sensational view, and the chance to spend time with friends and extended family in absolute comfort, then head to Anglesey and check this place out.
