Gardens and grounds
Min Y Garth sits behind a high stone wall with direct access off the Beaumaris road onto a large forecourt, offering hardstanding for numerous vehicles. Interestingly, the forecourt is elevated on columns, and consequently may have potential to partly convert below to create a garden room or ancillary accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.
The gardens are a real testament to the vision and hard work bestowed by the current owners; beautifully landscaped with an array of camellias, rhododendrons, clipped privet and box hedging and some wonderful trees. Conveniently, the gardens benefit from a water irrigation system.
Wrapping around the rear of the house is a terrace offering various alfresco dining areas, with views. A winding pathway runs through the garden leading to the walled mooring bay, with slipway to the western boundary of the property and to steps leading down to the beach at the opposite end of the gardens.
The current owners have previously moored various boats adjacent to the property’s private beach. Whilst they continue to pay and retain the mooring rights, future owners will need to approach the local authority in this regard.
