We would like to draw your attention to this prime commercial and residential freehold property. 40 Castle Street is a magnificent grade 2 listed Georgian mid terrace property that is located in the centre of the historic town of Beaumaris.
A splendid Georgian Grade II Listed Mid Terrace Residence (residential and commercial) located centrally within the historical coastal town of Beaumaris along the main street, rubbing shoulders with an eclectic mix of architecture which adorn this section of this celebrated town in a designated conservation area - stepping back to look at the frontage enables one to acknowledge the finer detail and aesthetic appeal whilst appreciating to a degree the extent of the accommodation on offer.
Beaumaris is of course noted for its Edwardian castle, being located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) along the shores of the Menai Strait, encompassing much of the coastline that stretches to Penmon lighthouse and beyond, enhanced by the presence of the Snowdonia Mountains on the mainland which creates a dramatic backdrop to say the least.
In truth, the space within 40 Castle Street cannot be fully appreciated from the roadside and really needs to be viewed internally to get a true sense of scale, proportion and indeed potential. The floorplan however, does help to some extent. The property, the origins of which are believed to date back to the early 19th century, has been well cared for over the years and in more recent times been sympathetically extended, modernised and since well maintained, retaining some of the character and style one would expect to find in a property of this period and type. Of course, some purchasers may want to undertake a fuller programme of modernisation to suit their style and taste. Advantageously, 40 Castle Street stands opposite Raglan Street which affords spectacular views across the Menai Strait towards the Snowdonia Mountain Range from certain aspects of the property.
In its current configuration, the main accommodation is laid out over three floors and includes a sizeable retail area amounting to approximately 1300 square feet (120 square metres), four reception rooms, two kitchens, six bedrooms, three bathrooms and four storage areas of varying sizes, including an attic that is accessed via stairs from the second floor. The residential section has gas central heating on the ground and first floors. The commercial section was formerly a chemist/pharmacy business, the evidence of which can clearly be seen. This aspect of the property could be made into a commercial venture once again and is suited to a number of uses - Beaumaris is not short of tourist themed outlets, galleries and eateries which may be an area worth exploring. The majority of the accommodation offers generous sized rooms and could be modified to accommodate apartments - subject to planning consents and approvals.
Externally to the rear, the residence can be approached along a vehicular access from Margaret Street, through a double-gated entrance onto a large enclosed courtyard providing ample off road parking and general access to the property, including two attached garages and a generous enclosed lawned garden. With much of Castle Street catering for commercial purposes, it's nice to a see a property having an unspoilt and spacious rear garden which affords a high degree of privacy.
LOCATION Beaumaris is most certainly a pretty town - a must on the tourist trail and enjoys a wide array of eclectic shops, a variety of restaurants and pubs that range from fine dining to award winning fish & chips and of course, not forgetting the ice cream parlour which is worth the wait in the queue! Beaumaris, which means 'beautiful marsh', sits right on the banks of the Menai Strait with its striking Georgian frontage, promenade and pier from where there are superb views across the water towards the dramatic mountains of Snowdonia. This historic town is situated towards the south easterly corner of the island and is home to the last Edwardian castle to be built in Wales. Full of history, the old Gaol, the Courthouse and the iconic Castle are sure to fascinate all the family - the site for the last of his 'iron ring' castles dating back to 1295. Grab yourself a crabbing line and take the children down the Victorian Pier or for those who prefer life a little faster, why not try the Rib Ride speedboat trip down the magnificent waters of the Menai Strait.
The town is steeped in history and home to an interesting mixture of Medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture. With plenty of fine beaches and coves in the vicinity together with excellent road links and great places to shop at Menai Bridge and the city of Bangor, the area could be just what you are looking for. There is much to enjoy in and around the town with quaint streets to explore and a wide variety of independent shops, taverns and restaurants. Beaumaris retains a sense of history, values its cultural importance whilst at the same time, embracing change.
