“Trefaes” is an imposing, substantial detached victorian period property which at one time formed part of the Plas Menai Estate and is located just off Cadnant Road on the edge of the very sought-after community of Menai Bridge. The house is set within very generous mature gardens and is approached via a tree lined driveway that sweeps around to a rear parking area. The property boasts super South facing views of the Menai Strait together with impressive views of the Snowdonia mountains. It benefits from gas central heating and a wealth of original features, including sash windows with original window shutters to some rooms and original Victorian doors and door furniture.
The house itself is in need of some reconfiguration and renovation and also includes a covered swimming pool which we understand requires upgrading along with a stone built former stable building (currently a wood store) and adjoining WC. The extensive gardens surround the house and comprise a number of different areas including a wonderful landscaped wild garden, a lawn to the front of the house and a “secret garden”. The original well can be found in the rear garden, together with pump house, potting shed/ old greenhouse..
The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance door from the rear parking area into the central hallway with access to the kitchen, with a rayburn gas fired cooker, and to an living/office room, which also has access to a small sunroom. A short passageway from the central hallway leads to two rooms, a sitting room with attractive stone fireplace and a spacious lounge/dining room. Both have bay windows with original window seats, shutters and sash windows and lovely views overlooking the attractive front lawn and gardens and the Menai Straits. The central hall also has one of the two staircases leading to the upstairs accommodation.
The Kitchen has access to a Utility room, which also gives access to the original front Hall and front door and a characterful Victorian tiled passage to a Victorian WC. This original front Hall also has a door into the Lounge/Dining room at the front of the house. The Utility room also gives access into a small inner Hall area with a second staircase leading to the first floor accommodation. Off the small inner Hall area is a spacious side Porch/Drying room with access to the integral Garage and a cold Storeroom/Wine cellar.
The staircase in the central Hallway leads to a half landing with doors leading to the main Bathroom and a Bedroom with bay window to front aspect affording stunning views overlooking the gardens and beyond to the Menai Strait. The half landing leads to the main upper floor and a spacious Bedroom, again with bay window to front aspect affording stunning views overlooking the gardens and beyond to the Menai Strait. The upper corridor leads into a through Sitting Room, with views of the back garden, which leads to the landing at the top of the second staircase. The landing leads to 3 further Bedrooms, all to front aspect and affording stunning views overlooking the gardens and beyond to the Menai Strait, and to the second Bathroom.
Externally, a linked garage adjoins the house with twin access and the property itself is surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and wildflowers.To the left of the main drive is a wooded area that has potential for further development subject to the usual consents. To the rear is parking for several vehicles with a pathway to the rear of the garage leading to the side which includes the detached enclosed swimming pool room.
Trefaes is a few minutes walk from the centre of Menai Bridge, with its local shops, including a Waitrose and an excellent selection of restaurants and cafés. Secondary schools David Hughes, Friars and St Gerard's private school, as well as three primary schools and Trefos Prep School and Nursery are within easy reach of the property.
The university town of Bangor is under 4 miles away, providing further amenities, including a large selection of shops, supermarkets and leisure facilities. Whilst Anglesey offers a wealth of cultural and leisure opportunities, especially for watersports enthusiasts and the mountains of Snowdonia are very easily accessible.
Bangor's mainline station offers fast direct connections to Chester, Cardiff and London. The A55 provides access towards Holyhead and eastwards across North Wales towards Cheshire, Liverpool and Manchester.
