Turret Corner is a traditional Victorian end-terrace that catches the eye immediately on approach, thanks to the rounded corner tower and turret.
Enjoying a prime location in Colwyn Bay, on the North Wales coast, the property is a large and roomy character full family home that also has holiday let or B and B (airbnb, tripadvisor) potential and offers seven-bedroom accommodation over three floors.
Retaining many original features, it possesses an appealing, olde-worlde charm and peaceful ambience.
A few minutes walk via a path from the bottom of the road will take you to the sandy beaches of Colwyn Bay. The A55 North Wales is also nearby, affording convenient access to the main road network, while Colwyn Bay railway station is approximately 7 minutes away and gives access to the capital in approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes.
A pleasant period Victorian corner townhouse with a turret, in an ideal central location in Colwyn Bay, on the North Wales coastline. This property is in a great location for the all-year-round, golden, sandy beach by ‘Porth Eirias’, with watersports and a celebrity chef restaurant (Bryn Williams), being reached using a path that leads from the bottom of the road and through an underpass. Fitness enthusiasts will be pleased to learn Colwyn Leisure Centre is within easy reach, incorporating the James Alexander Barr Tennis Centre is 6 minutes walk. The leisure centre also has a swimming pool, squash court, 4 court sports hall, fitness suite and athletics track. If you want to attend one of the many premier sporting events or concerts at Eirias Park you can use the same shortcut to be there within minutes. Other local amenities include the Theatr Colwyn & Cinema, the Bay View shopping centre with a Morrisons supermarket, pharmacy and restaurants. The nearest schools are Eirias High School and, for younger children, Ysgol Nant Groes is very close by both rated good in their most recent Estyn inspections. Along with a patio area, outside theres also off road parking for one car, as well as free roadside parking for additional vehicles if required. There are various pubs and restaurants, shops in Colwyn Bay, Rhos-on-Sea and Old Colwyn.
The property is entered via a porch into a spacious hallway with several original features that include a door with stained-glass windows, original victorian patterned floor tiles, wooden panelling, picture rails and ceiling corbels.
To the right is an airy sitting room, with plenty of natural light via windows in the rounded turret recess and a feature open fireplace with wooden surround and original cupboard and wood panelling in the window alcoves. The spacious dining room has double glazed windows and a decorative cast-iron open fireplace with useful alcoves on either side.
The good-sized fitted kitchen has a range of wood-fronted units with black worktops. The free-standing kitchen island has an integral breakfast bar, and there is a built-in hob and oven with extractor hood. The sink with mixer tap has tiled splashbacks, and there are large built-in original victorian cupboards and some shelving. The kitchen leads into a separate utility room, which houses the boiler and has some integral storage, and then to a shower room with shower cubicle, WC and hand basin.
On the first floor are four bedrooms with original fireplaces; the master bedroom features the curved tower recess with several windows and original victorian features, e.g. wooden panelling under windows, ceiling rose, large slate fireplace surround. The main bathroom is partly tiled and has a corner bath with shower over the bath, hand basin, WC and wall-mounted heated towel rail. There is a second separate bathroom with another WC and a handbasin. Both bathrooms have original victorian wood panels.
Three further bedrooms can be found on the second floor, again one featuring the tower corner recess and many original features which include original vicrorian cast iron fireplaces and original doors, along with a second small utility room (with a second washing machine) that can be used as a kitchen if required, including storage units and a breakfast bar, together with a further bathroom with WC, shower cubicle and hand basin. There is also a built-in storage cupboard on the landing.
Outside, the property is secluded by a low wall and hedges and there is off-road parking for one vehicle. There is a side patio area and a small lawn, as well as some flower beds with established plants and shrubs.
Other features include double glazing, loft insulation and low-energy lighting to the majority of fixed points. There is a ‘smart remote controlled wifi’ gas-fired central heating system, which also provides hot water, and some secondary dual-fuel (mineral and wood) room heaters.
In our opinion, this house is ideal as a full time family home or has potential as a holiday let (tripadvisor), or a B and B (airBnB). The second floor could be used as separate space, perhaps for an older teenager or grown-up child. As always, we would recommend a viewing by any potential buyer to fully appreciate the extent and standard of accommodation on offer, and its proximity to local amenities and attractions.
