Are you looking to escape to the country for a change of lifestyle? Fancy opening the curtains every morning and enjoying views across open farmland towards the Snowdonia mountain range, whilst being only four miles away from one of the finest beaches in Britain? This live/work opportunity on the beautiful island of Anglesey could be exactly what you’ve been looking for. Whilst the shop and Post Office generate a steady income, the house also lends itself perfectly to bed and breakfast should all the bedrooms not be required for family use.

The village shop and Post Office in Llangaffo is an important community hub for the village but also many of the outlying areas, providing not only somewhere to buy all of your essentials but also a meeting place to catch up on all the local news and events. The current owners have been running the shop for the past 35 years having made the move from Oxford to embark on a new life in the country, but it is now time for them to hand over the reins as they look towards retirement.

The shop is a member of the Go Local retail club, which is an independent wholesale supplier that also provides members with access to a team of retail advisers and special promotions in order to help maximise sales revenues. In addition to the benefits that this association brings, there are no restrictions placed on enhancing the stock with produce provided by local suppliers. The Post Office franchise brings in a steady and welcome income stream and in addition to the expected postal services, provides customers with access to banking facilities, currency exchange, mobile phone top ups and Amazon vouchers. The shop also sells newspapers, magazines and greeting cards, is licensed to sell alcohol, cigarettes and the National Lottery and provides a drop off and pick up service for DPD as well as being an Amazon Hub. In addition to serving the needs of the local and wider community throughout the year, the shop also benefits from an uplift in seasonal trade with thousands of holiday makers passing through the village on their way to the local beaches during the school holidays.

The shop area comprises the main retail space with Post Office counter and serving area, newspaper and magazine stands, shelving, Lottery stand, two open fronted display fridges for drinks and produce, an upright glass door display freezer and a branded ice cream chest freezer. Beyond the rear of the shop is a utility area and WC and two sizeable storage rooms which could be extended into in order to increase the size of the retail area if required.

A door from the shop opens through to the main house and into the dining area with a double glazed window to the rear elevation, radiator, recessed understairs storage area, a door through to the main entrance hall and a doorway through to the kitchen. Situated on the rear of the house and with double glazed windows to the rear and side elevations, the kitchen area is fitted with wall and base units, roll top work surfaces incorporating a stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, space for a cooker, space and plumbing for a dishwasher, a radiator and a double glazed door to the rear garden. From the main entrance hall, a glazed door leads through to the front porch, whilst additional doors open to the lounge and study and stairs rise up to the first floor landing. The lounge benefits from double glazed windows to the front and rear elevations and two radiators, whilst the study has a double glazed window to the front elevation and a radiator.

The first floor landing enjoys views to the rear from two double glazed windows, has two radiators and doors off to four double bedrooms, the house bathroom and an additional WC/bathroom. The house bathroom is fitted with a white suite and further comprises a panel bath with mains fed shower above, low flush WC and wash basin, double glazed window to the rear elevation, radiator towel rail, airing cupboard and a loft access hatch. The master bedroom, along with all the others, enjoys views towards the Snowdonia mountain range from a double glazed window to the front elevation and has a radiator, a door to an en-suite shower room and a doorway to a dressing room (previously bedroom five but which could easily be converted back if required) with further double glazed window to the front elevation and radiator. Bedroom two has a double glazed window to the front elevation and also benefits from a fitted wash basin and radiator, bedroom three has double glazed windows to both the front and side elevations, a radiator and a doorway to an en-suite shower room and bedroom four also has a double glazed window to the front elevation and a radiator. The additional WC/bathroom off the landing is currently fitted with a low flush WC and wash basin with the bath having been previously removed, but with the plumbing remaining in place.

To the rear of the property timber decking leads down to a paved patio and a raised hardstanding which currently houses a summer house and hot tub which are not included within the purchase price but are available by separate negotiation. Beyond here is a parking area with an electric car charging point and double gates opening to the side road. The main garden is laid to lawn with shrub and plant borders with a gate opening through to a side garden which also houses the oil tank and has a gate opening onto the road at the front and which could provide additional parking if required.

Llangaffo is a small village situated towards the South West corner of Anglesey with the nearest town being found approximately seven miles away towards the centre of the island at Llangefni. The beach at Llanddwyn is just over four miles away and is part of the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve and Forest and has been regularly voted as one of Britain’s best beaches, whilst the world famous tourist destination of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is only eight miles away. The island has a rich cultural heritage and enjoys unspoilt coastlines and stunning landscapes with fantastic opportunities for cycling, walking, horse riding and a whole variety of coastal activities from sailing and kayaking to kite surfing and coasteering. The mainland is easily accessible via one of the two iconic bridges and the city of Bangor with its cathedral, university and mainline train station is just over 11 miles away.

Ysgol Santes Dwynwen is just under two miles away and is a community primary school for the children of Llangaffo, Newborough, Dwyran and Bodorgan.
