Plas Y Coed ( "Mansion or countryhouse (large house) in the woods") Porth penrhyn, Bangor
The grade II listed house and stables were built between 1863 and 1878 on the site of the former 17th century classical villa ?Lime Grove?. Originally built as home to the Penrhyn Estate manager, Captain Pennant Lloyd, the house is spectacularly located on the North Wales coast, close to the harbour at Porth Penrhyn and adjacent to historic Penrhyn Castle and park. Plas Y Coed was designed in the Victorian gothic revival style and constructed of local granite and slate, ornately decorated with Anglesey Limestone used as a striking contrast for quoins, window surrounds, mullions, transoms and the main entrance balustrade. A significant architectural feature of this impressive, two storey historic house are the fullheight gable chimney stacks with moulded cappings on the north and south facing elevations. Principle entry is from the north and leads into the dramatic main entrance hall, which retains much of its original character, including the sweeping panelled staircase, gothic stone arches, the original fireplace and polychromatic ceramic floor tiles. Screened by banks of mature woodland (as the name suggests), PlasY Coed faces the Menai Straits, Porth Penrhyn and Hirael Bay to the north and the spectacular mountains of Snowdonia to the south.
Come home to A world of luxury Approaching along the private driveway from Porth Penrhyn you will notice that the stunning architectural features of Plas Y Coed have been conserved. The building has been meticulously restored to its former splendour with the retention of many fine architectural features such as the original hall fireplace, refurbished staircase and encaustic tiled floor. The introduction of contemporary elements is sensitively balanced within this classic context, resulting in 12 highly individual living spaces with graceful proportions. Each of the luxury apartments has been designed to a scale and architectural style sympathetic to this grade II listed building. Remaining traces of the original features have been expertly integrated with high specification fixtures and fittings throughout. Open-plan living areas and bright, spacious rooms create the quality bespoke homes only possible in an intimate development such as Plas Y Coed, effortlessly blending the traditional and the contemporary
The wealth of this region was based on the successful slate quarrying industry in the 18th century leading to the development of nearby Bangor and Porth Penrhyn creating property such as Plas Y Coed, then known as Lime Grove, and Penrhyn Castle. PlasY Coed was built on the site of an earlier Georgian house known as Lime Grove, demolished in 1860 to make way for a the new residence. The date of the current construction is evidenced by the iron hopper heads of the rain water pipes, which date back to 1863. The building remained the residence of Penrhyn Estate up until 1970 when it was purchased by Caernarfon County Council and converted to a residential retirement home. Watkin Jones aquired Plas Y Coed and have now completed a sympathetic conversion of the grade 2 listed house and ancilliary buildings into 12 elegant and luxurious apartments whilst retaining much of the building?s original gothic style architectural features
