Spectacular views, a south-facing terrace and your own private beach are just some of the benefits of this large family home on the banks of the Menai Strait
Imagine whiling away a warm, spring afternoon sitting on a terrace with a book and a glass of wine, then glancing up at your sea and mountain views.
Min Y Garth is a 19th-century property on the southern coast of Anglesey that offers this kind of lifestyle and plenty more.
Built over four storeys, front-facing rooms enjoy a vista that overlooks the Menai Strait – that narrow stretch of water separating Anglesey from the mainland – and the mountains of Snowdonia behind. The view from the property also incorporates The Great Orme by Llandudno to the east and the iconic Menai Suspension Bridge to the west.
On the ground floor is a large drawing room and dining room, plus a fully-fitted kitchen and adjoining sun room.
Upstairs is a study/dressing room and two bedrooms: the master room has an en-suite bathroom with a large shower, while the second room has an en-suite shower room.
Then on the second floor are two more bedrooms, one with a storage room and the other with a balcony.
In addition to this is a self-contained apartment on the lower ground floor. This consists of a hall, a living room, a fitted kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.
A staircase leads down from the floor above, and a lockable door makes the apartment ideal to be used as a holiday let, or for extra guests or an elderly relative to have additional privacy.
Outside there’s a lovely brick-paved terrace from which you can enjoy your book and glass of wine, and it’s plenty big enough for family meals and for entertaining guests.
In front of the house there’s a garden well stocked with plants, shrubs and bushes, while mature trees are dotted around the grounds.
The gardens lead down to a small beach – the property fronts the Menai Strait for about 100 metres – where there’s also a slipway and a walled mooring area, ensuring boat owners have easy access down to the water.
Several more sitting areas provide ample opportunity to find your own little spot to enjoy the view.
You might feel comfortably removed from civilisation here, yet you’ll have plenty of amenities on your doorstep. The small town of Menai Bridge is just a mile-and-a- half up the road, while the A55 North Wales Expressway and the city of Bangor on the mainland are both less than five miles away.
If you’re searching for a house that offers plenty of space, remarkable views and an extremely comfortable quality of life on the coast, then take a look at Min Y Garth.
