There are few properties of the calibre of Plas Newydd with the space to entertain guests or accommodate extended families in such a wonderful and private setting. Created in an Italianate style and recently subject to an extensive refurbishment programme which has retained many of the delightful period features, this is a truly special property.
The sunny south facing terrace is perfect for al fresco entertaining and five sets of French doors open onto this from the principal ground floor room and the dining kitchen, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor area during the summer months. The terraces lead down to the lower gardens with a large lawn and a delightful lily pond with seating areas. A breeze house provides for a haven during inclement weather.
The property is approached by a long sweeping driveway with automated gates with the carriage drive leading around a small copse. The property is approached via its pretty gable entrance and opens into a reception hall with a screened staircase and a real fire. Double doors lead off into the generous sitting room with French doors to the terrace and double doors to the dining kitchen.
The dining kitchen is well appointed with granite surfaces and features a wood burning stove and integrated appliances. Three sets of French doors open to the rear terrace. A pantry/utility room lies off with a separate laundry room.
There are 3 principal bedroom suites on the first floor with 4 secondary bedrooms served by a house bathroom. All enjoy wonderful views and two have French doors opening to the northern gardens.
The principal suite is located on the second floor and this splendid room has patio doors opening to a large roof terrace with sensational views over the bay. This impressive room is served by a dressing room and a well-appointed en suite bathroom.
The outdoor entertaining space here is provided by a 50' pavilion which overlooks both the hard tennis court and the octagonal deck area inset with a hot tub. There is plenty of space for the snooker table and the games room.
Garaging is set off the main driveway and includes a large single garage with an adjoining garden garage and store. There is a general gardeners area and a second driveway leads down to the lower garden areas. A brick built plant/boiler room in the form of a small cottage houses the central heating boilers.
The grounds have been mentioned in detail earlier, but they are simply captivating. A second pond lies in a secluded section of the upper garden and there are a plethora of specimen trees and shrubs with extensive landscaping creating a wonderfully private and self-contained world set in the natural scenic splendour of the Lynn Peninsula.
