THE PROPERTY

A CHARMING PERIOD HOUSE OCCUPYING A SPECTACULAR COASTAL LOCATION IN THE VILLAGE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS. ACCOMMODATION IN BRIEF - Entrance and main halls - Cloakroom - Sitting Room opening to Garden Room - Lounge with Dining Area - Kitchen with separate Breakfast Room - Pantry and Store Rooms - 2 ground floor Double Bedrooms, one with Dressing Room and En-Suite Bath/Shower Room - Separate Ground floor Shower Room - 3 First Floor Bedrooms and Separate W.C. - Loft Storage - Parking - Terrace and Extensive lawned gardens - In all approximately 2/3 of an acre DESCRIPTION Hafn occupies an outstanding coastal location on the west coast of Holy Island off Anglesey, adjoining headland overlooking Trearddur Bay and with wonderful panoramic views. The house likely dates from 1930's with a distinctive Arts & Crafts feel, and is constructed predominantly of stone with some brick under white painted rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof with dormers. The property enjoys plenty of character, with period doors and architraves, some hardwood parquet floors, high ceilings with exposed timbers, an open fireplace and bay window in the main lounge and an attractive staircase, complemented by double glazing, a well fitted kitchen and bathrooms and a LPG central heating system the boilers for which was replaced in 2015. Indeed, seldom do properties of this calibre come to the market in Trearddur Bay, Hafn being a case in point - having not been offered for sale for circa 50 years, remaining in the same family ownership. The house provides spacious and well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors ideally suited for use as a permanent dwelling or second home. There is, however, evidently tremendous potential to further improve Hafn both inside and out, notably inside at first floor level by converting the loft space, perhaps to a new master suite, and outside with the addition of a garage/boat store. There is also opportunity for a more elaborate scheme or reconfiguration/remodelling should anyone so wish. The front door opens to a entrance hall off which is a cloakroom and separate W.C. Beyond is the main hall which serves all principal ground floor rooms the majority of which overlook the sea. At the southern end of the house is a snug sitting room with garden room off providing a lovely dining area and with access to the garden. In the central part of the building is the main reception room comprising a lounge area with open fireplace and brick surround, deep bay window with window seat, and space for dining table and chairs also with access to the terrace. Opposite is the breakfast room with arch to the kitchen which incorporates a range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath work surfaces, double ovens and Hotpoint hob, and a 1½ bowl sink with mixer. Beyond the breakfast room is a rear hall off which are two stores and a pantry which houses the boilers. The remainder of the ground floor comprises the main bedroom which has steps to a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, second double bedroom and fully fitted shower room. At first floor level there are three further double or twin bedrooms, and a separate W.C. As mentioned earlier, the loft space is extensive and provides useful storage but also offers scope for conversion subject to obtaining any necessary consents. LOCATION Hafn occupies a prominent and highly sought after location in Trearddur Bay, arguably one of the finest in the village. Indeed, the immediate position of Hafn is of particular significance as it is situated towards the head of Lon Penrhyn Garw with little passing vehicular traffic, having wonderful panoramic views across the bay and out to sea. It is only a short distance from the sandy beaches in Trearddur Bay, the TBSC Dinghy Park and a selection of pubs and restaurants. The village provides local services including a Spar supermarket, Post Office, and restaurants including The Seacroft, The Sea Shanty and Ocean's Edge, all of which are within walking distance. Holyhead is 3 miles away with a retail park including several supermarkets and department stores. On the recreational front the island is known for its scenic coastline and numerous sandy beaches. There is excellent walking both in land and along the Anglesey coastal path, a marina at Holyhead and several golf courses within close proximity. There is also windsurfing and kitesurfing at nearby Rhosneigr and Newborough. COMMUNICATIONS The property benefits from excellent road communications being within 2 miles of the A55 Expressway facilitating easy access across Anglesey and the North Wales coast to Cheshire and linking with the national motorway network. To travel further afield there is a direct rail service from Holyhead to London Euston and a daily ferry service to Dun Laoghaire. OUTSIDE The property is approached off the lane to a gravel drive with parking in front of the house suitable for numerous vehicles and/or boats. At the far end of the house is an enclosed yard which accommodates the LPG tank and which is served with pedestrian gated access to both the drive and garden at the rear. To the rear of the house is a wide brick sett terrace from which there are magnificent views across the garden out to sea. The terrace can be accessed from the main lounge and conservatory, and extends across much of the width of the building. Steps lead down to the garden which is laid to lawn with some rock outcrop, and surrounded by low stone walls beyond which is the headland. There is access to the garden from the drive on the south side of the building and an area of ground which would appear suitable for the citing of a garage subject to the availability of any necessary consents.
