The property is easily located off the A55 and is conveniently situated on the outskirts of the premier coastal town of Llandudno via the A470.
The area has so much to offer with three golf courses and two marinas, great beaches and the Great & Small Ormes are such a feature to the area. Snowdonia and Anglesey are not too far away with the A55 providing fabulous coastal views along the route.
The elevated location of the hall allows for 180 degree views with a backdrop of woodlands in this truly magical setting, a semi rural hamlet on the slopes of Bryn Pydew.
PABO HALL is an attractive, historic home built in 1869 and renovated in 1886 as a shooting lodge for the Brooke family whose family history is depicted in the stained glass windows to the first floor.
The attractive elevation is symbolic of its era with a veranda running the full length of the south facing elevation, a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy the vista. One of the notable features is the stone clock tower which unlike the house, was listed to Grade 11 status in 1981. The turret clock was designed by Joyce & Co of Shropshire, their clocks can be found all over the world as well as on our own shores such as the much photographed Eastgate Street clock in Chester. This historic tower was gifted a Doulton Lambeth sculpture to the side elevation by a Roumanian Princess who used to stay at the hall when she visited Wales and whose country now has roads named after it in Llandudno!
The present owners have created a family home which has been beautifully restored, a warm and inviting home with an opulent and elegant interior providing the ability to entertain on a grand scale. This is created by its unrestrained scale, architectural integrity and detail, which continues throughout this beautiful and magnificent house. Features include ornately carved ceilings, bright stone mullioned windows, detailed cornicing and an elegant staircase along with wonderful fireplaces that illustrate what a remarkable home this is, undoubtedly one of the finest along the coast.
The interior has been professionally upgraded and by gone days have not been forgotten with every step around this stunning home. The work was completed only a few years ago with many local craftsmen and local companies involved wherever possible. The majority of the windows were replaced with double glazing, however the original leaded windows were retained wherever possible to keep the character. All electric works were upgraded where necessary and an electrical certificate provided. The majority of the rooms were also replastered.
The luxury bespoke kitchen is a dream, not only for its English classic design and comprehensive styling but where else you would you be able to cook and entertain with such a fabulous view overlooking the Conwy Estuary and stunning Conwy Castle. It has everything from a breakfast bar, granite counter tops with polished and leatherised texture finishes, hand painted units in Farrow & Ball paints, an Aga oven, top of the range appliances, feature lighted canopy, exquisite panelling to the ceiling and so forth!
Step back in time in the dining room for formal dining with friends and family overlooking the Conwy Estuary; an elegant room that would serve equally well as a sitting room having a cosy log burning fire. The lounge does not disappoint. It's very spacious but still comfortable with its cosy furnishings, limestone feature fireplace set in a recess and deep walk-in bay window seats overlooking the gardens and estuary. Another feature is the floor to ceiling mirror which is said to have come from a ballroom in Westminster Bridge which will stay with the property. Also on the ground floor is a very stylish modern cloakroom off which is the boiler room and across the inner hall is a very spacious utility room - an invaluable room to assist in everyday family living. Along the hallway a stair leads down to the cellar area. Here it is very clean and dry and offers a variety of uses from storage to workshops to man den etc!
The elegant staircase in the hallway rises to a half landing with near floor to ceiling feature stained glass windows and door on to a small balcony. A few more steps lead to a further landing with floor to ceiling wardrobes. Double doors then open into a sensational master suite sitting privately on the east wing of the house. The views are equally sensational across the countryside and river from the main windows whilst a stained glass window features the heralds of the Brooke family and tells their life in pictures - very nostalgic! A walk in dressing room with natural light has a turned staircase to the second floor giving access to a private area with additional hanging and storage space whilst off the bedroom is a glamourous, 4pce modern en-suite including a free standing bath putting the finishing touches to this fabulous suite.
The stairs now lead to the first floor and here is a very impressive landing off which are four further beautiful bedrooms all with fabulous views and three of which have modern en-suites, one being a Jack and Jill en-suite (a bathroom sandwiched between two bedrooms where both have access).
And if you are still looking for more bedroom space, a staircase follows up to a second floor where there are six rooms which could be transformed as bedrooms, offices, hobby rooms , studio etc. All have double glazed windows and are decorated, carpeted and have central heating on the landing.
The property is surrounded by substantial gardens laid mostly to lawn to the front, sides and rear including woodland also to the rear. A small decorative tower and disused Victorian style greenhouse lay to the top left corner of the garden. What used to be a gardeners cottage is now a storeroom which sits at the rear of the property.
Pabo Hall is approached via a long lane running through farmland a short distance from where the A470 joins the A55 expressway alternatively can be accessed via Esgyryn down a private driveway, a short distance off the A470 towards Llandudno.
