One-of-a-kind designer arts and crafts house with stunning market views


A characterful period property built as part of the 1920s Arts and Crafts architectural movement has come on the market. Plas Newydd was designed by renowned architect Herbert Luck North, famous for his distinctive buildings in the Llanfairfechan area.

The detached property is located on Treforris Road in Dwygyfylchi, on the edge of Snowdonia, overlooking a nearby golf course as well as the Great Orme and the Conwy coast. It has been extensively refurbished and reconfigured in recent years and is now for sale for £750,000.

Its unique yet simple design is typical of the Arts and Crafts style that came to prominence in the early 20th century. The movement was seen as a reaction to the excesses of Victorian industrialization, stemming from a desire to revive traditional craftsmanship and restore simplicity and a sense of honesty in the manufacture of buildings and furniture.

The master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom is located on the first floor, as are the other two bedrooms and the four piece family bathroom.

It is accessed via a long gated driveway with a garden lawn with established trees and shrubs, a paved seating area with an ornamental pond and, at the top, a raised terrace for seating and a summer house to the front of the property. A separate garden is located to the rear which includes another elevated area with views of the coast and the possibility of al fresco dining.
