Ty Pinc is one of the most impressive homes in Beaumaris, built in the 16th century outside the walls of the town.
Sitting front line with unbelievable views of the Menai Strait, Snowdonia and Beaumaris. Originally part of Tros yr Afon Manor House it has undergone a comprehensive restoration project, peeling back time to reveal a hidden, forgotten Tudor wall painting, covered over 'A' frame beams and wooden timbers. Brought up to date by antiques dealer and Interior designers Holly Johnson and Benjamin Aardewerk with the utmost care and attention to detail, Ty Pinc allows guests to enjoy this wonderful unique home with a touch of modern luxury.
Most bedrooms are decorated in a lively traditional manner, the house is filled with antiques and artworks. Earthborne paint, perfect for conservation and environmentally friendly, has been used throughout. Comfy vintage sofas and armchairs have been renovated and used throughout the property in an effort to be as green as possible. There is a drop off point to the front of the property with a path up to the front door.
The main downstairs lounge holds the greatest find from the renovation works. On the side wall are original Tudor vertical beams in amazing original condition. These are part of what would have originally been a full wall screen, painted across wood and plaster in bright colours depicting foliage and heraldry. This would have been commissioned to display the wealth and power of the owner. There is an original fireplace with gas fire and large freeview TV. It is a great room to relax with direct access to the front and side garden. Two huge bays give lovely views of the garden and Snowdonia mountains across the Strait.
Off the hall is the beautifully decorated downstairs bedroom with super king-size bed, with en suite shower room with disabled access, this room is wheelchair friendly. The view through the bay window is out to the front garden. To the rear of the property is a vast kitchen/ dining room which seats 12. The kitchen is hand-crafted by Martin Lloyd, the dining table is antique, made by the renowned English furniture maker Edward Barnsley.
On the side wall sits a monumental cabinet by the celebrated designer Piero Fornasetti. The kitchen opens up to a wonderful outside courtyard, ideal for summer dining. Off the kitchen, through the double doors, one enters the gorgeously decorated second downstairs bedroom, with William Morris wallpaper and an en suite shower room. Upstairs you will discover the most wonderful room in Ty Pinc - the green salon with its two huge bays giving jaw dropping views over the Menai Strait to Snowdonia. In the renovations the early 21st Century barrel ceiling was stripped back to reveal the original Tudor 'A' frames, sitting high up in the room, these would have been part of the original Tudor Hall. The salon is filled with antiques and comfy seating and is a great place for entertaining, with its own bar and tea and coffee facilities.
The main bedroom also leads off the landing. With a walk-in wardrobe, en suite with both shower and bath. Surrounded by hummingbird wallpaper you can take tea in the morning and look out of the huge bay windows down to Beaumaris Pier. The central corridor leads you off to two more beautifully decorated large rooms, both with single twin beds and en suite bathrooms with baths and over bath showers. Each bedroom has a playful themed wallpaper. The final bedroom has a king-size oak bed by the renowned Yorkshire maker Mouseman and the walls are lined with Christian Lacroix butterfly wallpaper. En suite shower room and superb views out to the Strait. All the bedrooms have freeview TV, skper king Burgess mattresses or good size twins.
Ty Pinc has its own private side garden with wonderful views to the mountains, complete with loungers for relaxing. A courtyard to the rear, great for al fresco eating. Why not use the barbecue! Parking for 4 cars, and electric car charger (available when pre booked).
We are a five-minute walk away from the beautiful town Beaumaris, with lovely shops and a wide variety of restaurants and even a little bakery.
Let us not forget the famous Beaumaris Castle and the Beaumaris pier. From the pier there are different boat rides and fishing trips departing, which go up and down the Menai Strait, or on to the Irish Sea.
The Beaumaris Goal is a very interesting place to visit as it gives you an insight to the prison life in Victorian times.
There are two golf courses in the direct vicinity, a 9 hole course at Baron Hill Golf Club and a full 18 hole course at Henllys Golf Club, where they have a great grill restaurant, Harry's Bistro, also open to non-golfers.
