Unique studio/ and cottage in Beaumaris, Anglesey home swap
The studio (scroll down for details of the house) is connected through a small jungly garden to the main house, it is also a self contained unit and can be separated from the main house, So I have two listings here! I am looking for a swap with someone who either uses the studio as a studio with living accomodation, or as a studio connected to the house, or just somewhere to stay ( my paintings will be insitu but its still a fabulous place to stay)
The studio is very comfortable and light, it`s a self-contained space with two mezzanine bedrooms set in a lovely walled garden with its own private entrance.
It contains a comfy sitting area with a wood burning stove and fantastic furniture (bubble chair, Eames and a 3 seater felt chesterfield) I have a big collection of books and on one mezzanine there is a TV with dvds ( i don`t watch tv just films). There`s a modern fully equipped kitchen and dining area with french doors into the garden and above the kitchen there is another bright and spacious mezzanine bedroom (which has massive windows above with blackout blinds, wonderful for just lying in bed staring up at the sky or watching the birds go by).
There is a separate ensuite wetroom with vanity area and washing machine. Lots of space in the garden for bikes, kayaks.
The studio is a fabulous place to stay in Beaumaris or as a base to travel from. It feels safe and tends to wrap itself around you, its unique (Its been a studio for decades, before that it was a welding workshop) and very comfy with full central heating.
It`s behind a larger building which is a 3 bedroom converted cottage. The studio is my working space (I`m a writer and painter) and It contains all the facilities that you would expect in a self-contained house.
If anyone is interested and also wants to swap studios that is possible. Details regarding the house are further down the description.
Bedding and towels are included
There are stairs going up to the mezzanine bedroom that won`t suit the elderly or disabled. I have included a photo for you to see.
The beach overlooking the straits and Snowden range and outdoor cafes/pier are 5 minutes walk away from both properties.
I have this listing on airbnb as well if you wish to see that listing and the five star reviews.
The house is a 3 bedroom cottage that thinks its a townhouse! There are 3 bedrooms, I king size and two singles (extra bed for floor available) The large bathroom has a walk in shower and a bath. Downstairs is open plan with a long 22ft living room with stove, two couches, piano and dining table. It leads to the kitchen which has everything needed including a dishwasher. Beyond the kitchen and running along the width of the house is a conservatory with a comfy couch, chairs and big dining table, it gets full sun all day and in the summer its hot! From here there are french doors leading out onto the back garden and the studio entrance. The garden is small, jungly with tree ferns and other interesting plants and has statues and furniture.
The house is very comfy, I`ve lived here for 20 years and it`s been a wonderful family home and place to work.
I do not have a TV, however I do have wifi! The house is on a quiet lane with other houses and parking is around the corner on the street ( I park there).
I have a motorhome which I am also prepared to also swap for the right property. I am not interested in large groups staying in the property. Diolch!
About the location
Beaumaris is a world heritage town.
The studio is in a quiet neighbourhood, tucked away in a conservation area. 5 minutes from the beach, restaurants, castle, pier and pubs and quirky individual shops, all very easy to get to. The bus stop is 5 minutes away.
The nearby spar supermarket (5mins walk) is well stocked for everyday food and there is a bakery for really good fresh bread and cakes (guests always comment on it!) 2 charity shops and a great Indian takeaway/ restaurant. All the usual high street supermarkets and shops are 15 minutes drive away in Bangor. There is a Waitrose 3 miles away in Menai Bridge.
The local beach is sandy with lots of boat trips to Puffin island and other places along the Menai straits. There is a childrens park and paddling pool on the seafront, and a terrace at the Bulkeley Hotel. The amazing Snowdon mountain range can be seen from the beach and cafes, and there are plenty of easy walks from town.
There is a good bus service 5 minutes away that goes to lots of places on the island and further afield. The ferry to Dublin is 40 minutes away. ( a fantastic day out, takes 90 mins to cross) Trains are in Bangor, a bus ride away.
Beaumaris is on the Anglesey coastal path.
