Llanasa Road, Gwespyr
St. Winifrides forms part of a former school which was built by Lord Mostyn in the middle of the 19th century to a solid gothic style with sand stone walls and slate roofs. St Winifrides comprises the former girl’s school and was converted in the late part of the 20th century and now forms a fine family residence. It occupies an idyllic rural position on the outer confines of the conservation village of Llanasa and is within one mile of the coast. A Grade II listed building, many of the original features to the building abound including stone mullion ell windows, exposed roof purlins and the former school hall with a galleried landing is outstanding remains intact. It is tastefully appointed throughout combining the old with the new and offers a rare opportunity for the discerning buyer to acquire a most individual historic house which is unspoilt and offers all modern refinements complete with the quintessential AGA range and a large living kitchen, The property is by no means remote and is within five miles of the A55 express way at junction 31 which makes for commuting to all the North Wales costal town and Chester about twenty five miles. The neighbouring resort of Prestatyn is less than three miles and offers a full range of schools and shopping facilities. The property is a rare find and benefits by way of oil fire central heating.
