Llanerch-Y-Mor House sits in an elevated and private setting on the fringe of the village of Mostyn, near the town of Holywell, on the bank of the Dee Estuary. Holywell offers a broad range of everyday amenities, whilst Chester provides a comprehensive offering. Local recreational
opportunities include Pennant Park and Holywell Golf Clubs, beach and water sport activities along the North Wales coastline and some wonderful walks.
Local state schooling is well-provided in addition to highly regarded Independent schooling including Rydal Penrhos and King’s and Queen’s schools in Chester. The property has ease of access to the A548 coast road in addition to the A55 Expressway leading to the North Wales
coastline in the west and Chester to the east. Flint station has a regular service to Chester which has a direct-line service to London, Euston, within 2 hours.
Llanerch-Y-Mor House is an imposing Edwardian residence, built circa 1904, offering elegant and spacious family accommodation. The property occupies a private setting, set within mature grounds along with a lake which once supplied the nearby mill. The property will appeal to those with an equestrian interest having a paddock and outbuildings. Interestingly, the property also includes a substantial brick-built chimney tower,
once forming part of the local lead and sheet mill, now a retail fabric store.
An imposing entrance with canopy porch opens into an enclosed porch with inner door opening into a grand reception hall, having oak parquet flooring, plaster coved ceiling, picture rails and deep skirting boards, which runs throughout much of the property.
To the front of the house is a snug with attractive cast-iron open fireplace within an ornate surround and a lovely bay window to the front. Across the hallway is a well-proportioned dining room, having a bright and sunny aspect.
At the heart of the house is a sociable family kitchen with adjoining breakfast room and morning room. The kitchen itself is fitted with a bespoke hand-painted kitchen by Tegla of
Denbighshire, including a breakfast bar, larder unit and dresser with granite worksurfaces. The kitchen includes a range of integral appliances, including an oil-fired four oven AGA and twin
Belfast sinks. Terracotta style floor tiles run throughout the family kitchen. Off the kitchen is a rear vestibule leading to a boot room with Victorian sink and a separate WC.
Across the hallway is the Drawing Room, a grand entertaining space, with treble aspects affording plenty of natural daylight. This room features an open fireplace within a charming oak surround with cast iron grate with decorative tiled inserts.
A grand turned staircase with polished handrails leads to a spacious first-floor landing. The master bedroom is of note, having bespoke hand-painted “his & her” wardrobes and a luxurious en suite bathroom with cast-iron clawfoot bath and a
quality white “Sanitan” suite. Four further double bedrooms are located on the first floor, many having original cast-iron fireplaces, lovely views and charming “Cath Kidston” wallpaper. Bedroom five enjoys an en suite shower room with a traditional quality “Burlington” suite and a delightful family bathroom, also fitted with a “Burlington” suite including a cast-iron slipper bath.
To the second floor are two further large double bedrooms, both having lovely views to the private lake and plenty of eaves storage. A pretty shower room features Victorian style sanitaryware, along with a shower cubicle, with a door leading to
attic storage space. With access from an external door is a large cellar, with generous headroom, housing the oil-fired central heating boiler.
Gardens and grounds
The property is approached along a sweeping gravel driveway flanked by metal estate fencing, which forks off to a detached garage, and continues thereafter to an extensive forecourt to the front of the house. The property sits centrally within formal gardens, with the lake to the north of the house offering boating and fishing opportunities, with an island and a wooded
backdrop. The formal gardens include a useful brick-built bothy, with power, lighting and wood-burning stove, ideal as a home office or sleeping lodge. Adjacent to the garage is a substantial timber built garden building, currently being used as a workshop and hobby room.
To the west of the house is a single ring-fenced stock proofed field, with gentle undulation, benefitting from a separate access off the adjoining road, ideal for heavy vehicular access. Within the field is a steel-frame portal four bay open shed with adjoining enclosed workshop/machinery shed, which could quite simply be converted to provide stabling, where required.
To the east of the property is woodland where the brick-built tower is located, which has recently been recognised as a structure of historic interest, by Cadw.
We understand there is an overage clause on the paddock, located to the west of the property, with an original term of 25 years at a rate of 50%, in favour of the previous owners. Further details from the selling agent.
