An historic family home with extensive gardens and breathtaking views over the Menai Strait, Bangor's Victorian pier, and Snowdonia, with 2 paddocks available by separate negotiation.
Lleifior was designed and built by the architect Peter Gregory in 1897, whilst working on the impressive Bryn Mel Manor nearby. The house boasts a mixture of mock Tudor, Arts & Crafts and Scottish Baronial styles, resulting in an attractive and locally notable property. The house benefits from a south facing aspect, maximising the impact of the spectacular views. Lleifior is entered via the front door through a small vestibule opening into an impressive panelled hallway with a herringbone woodblock floor. Opening off the hall are the principal reception rooms: the dining room, drawing room, with an open fireplace and spacious box bay window and the sitting room with garden access, all with unsurpassed views. The study has an alcove window with a seat below and the light and elegant dining room has dual aspect leaded casement windows. Also off the hall is a large cloakroom and a walk-in pantry. The kitchen has an oil-fired Aga, separate electric cooker, light wood floor and wall units, and a door to the terrace. There are steps down from the kitchen to the utility room and back door. A beautiful turned staircase with a large stained glass double height window, and smaller feature oriel window, leads to the first floor landing. The master bedroom has a lovely seating area with panoramic views and a large en suite bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms, a family bathroom, a shower room with built-in airing cupboard, and a separate W.C. The attic floor comprises a large open room with skylight window, storeroom and 2 further rooms to either end with beamed and timbered ceilings, giving scope for further bedrooms.
Lleifior is accessed via an "in and out" semicircular tarmac driveway around a raised lawned area, with plenty of parking space. Additionally, there is a double garage to the left of the property. There are well-planted borders around the house and the secluded gardens feature shrubs, mature trees, a pond and lawns. There is a large barn, which has potential for replacement to provide ancilliary accommodation (subject to planning permission), and a sheltered summerhouse. The gardens also share the magnificent views.
