A grand modern property on the slopes of Llandudno’s Great Orme, with striking views and the remains of a 13th-century Bishop’s Palace in the garden
A line of luxury properties graces the western shores of The Great Orme – that thrilling limestone headland overlooking the popular seaside resort of Llandudno, Conwy.
And here’s a chance to get your hands on one of these fine houses. Abbey Court is a handsome modern building, designed to fully enjoy the staggering views on offer.
The lawn slopes gently down towards the coast, where there are remains of the Bishop’s Palace – a listed 13th-century ruin which is thought to have burned down during the Owain Glyndwr rebellion of the early 1400s.
Behind this ruin is the Conwy estuary, beyond which are the mountains of Snowdonia to one side and the likes of Anglesey and Puffin Island to the other.
It’s a view to impress and you’ll be able to do just that in style, thanks to the spacious three-tiered balcony that soaks up the fine vista.
And even if the sunshine or temperature decide not to play ball, you can enjoy the very same panorama from the comfort of the spacious interior.
The drawing room is triple aspect, with a grand marble fireplace housing a gas fire. It has French doors leading onto the terrace, as does the sitting room and the kitchen, which is fitted with Mackintosh units and granite work surfaces.
Also on the ground floor is a marble-floored reception hall with an oak staircase leading to the first floor, which houses four of the bedrooms.
The master bedroom has a sea view, with double doors opening onto a Juliet balcony. It also comes with fitted wardrobes, a dressing area and an ensuite bathroom with steam room.
The second bedroom is known as the guest suite, and also has an en-suite bathroom, fitted wardrobes, a dressing room and French doors leading to a balcony with ocean views.
The two other bedrooms on this floor have fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower rooms, while upstairs on the second floor are two large rooms, which could be used as additional bedrooms or as studies. Abbey Court is conveniently located on the doorstep of Llandudno, with a good range of shops, cafés, pubs, restaurants and, of course, two wonderful beaches.
Also close by is Conwy, with its famous castle, while the A55 Expressway provides easy access to the likes of Bangor and Anglesey, as well as Chester and Liverpool across the border.
Whether it’s the expansive views, the sea air, the desire to entertain, the medieval history on your front lawn, or just the chance to enjoy lazy days on the terrace, this property has so much to offer and will surely be snapped up before long.
