Built circa 1928 by the Watkin Jones family for their own occupation, the property has been built to an exceptionally high standard throughout and still retains many of its original features including parquet block floors to the majority of the ground floor rooms, deep oak skirtings and panelled doors, original fireplaces, a ‘dog-leg’ staircase with a beautiful stained glass window to the half landing, original black and white tiling to the bathroom floor and deep coved ceilings. 

 

The property has been extended by the present owners and now offers extremely spacious and well appointed family accommodation which includes an impressive main hall, a fitted cloakroom, two large reception rooms each having some original fireplaces and wide leaded uPVC double glazed bow windows taking full advantage of the views and the south east facing aspect, a spacious breakfast kitchen with a range of built-in appliances and a large conservatory overlooking the rear garden.  To the first floor level, there are four large double bedrooms with an en-suite bath/shower room to the master bedroom, a re-fitted family bathroom, a separate w.c. and an exceptionally large floored roof space which offers potential to provide further accommodation.

 

The property stands in extensive, private and beautifully landscaped grounds which have been exceptionally well maintained by the present owners.  The rear gardens are particularly impressive and have a series of raised dry stone/dressed slate walled terraces with an abundance of colourful plants and shrubs, slate and stone walled steps, mature specimen trees, a kitchen garden section, fruit bushes and a large upper lawn with a magnificent wisteria backdrop and a delightful revolving summerhouse.

 

Gwyndy is conveniently placed within ten minutes’ walk of the main university campus, the pier and the city centre with its wide range of amenities.  Primary and secondary schools, Ysbyty Gwynedd, Waitrose and the A55 expressway are also within approximately ten minutes’ drive.   

The property is of mainly brick construction with rendered and painted elevations under a pitched slate roof which incorporates PV panels.  The property also has insulated external cladding to both gable ends and the dormers.   

DIRECTIONS:  From the traffic lights adjacent to the railway station, proceed down Deiniol Road, bear left at the first roundabout and at the second mini roundabout, turn left into Love Lane.  When you reach the ‘T’ junction at the top of the hill, turn right into Upper Garth Road and after approximately 30 yards, take the first entrance on your left.  Follow the driveway and this will lead you up to Gwyndy.
