Gothic castle estate with a whopping 26 bedrooms on the market for £1.2m – and its the ultimate doer-upper

When searching for a new home, some people prefer to buy a newly built property that is ready to move straight into, whereas others would much rather purchase a home that requires improvement so that they can make it their own. For house hunters who are the latter, and have a lot of cash in the bank, this gothic castle-style estate is the ultimate doer-upper and is in need of a big renovation project due to its run-down, derelict state.

The impressive 19th century Welsh castle is currently up for sale for £1,250,000. Within the price tag buyers will get the main Grade II listed property as well as two separate dwellings.

Although any prospective owners will have their work cut out, the stunning estate is likely to be a worthy investment. The 1981 property, named Bryn Corach, sits on 2.6 acres of grounds and features a turret, croquet lawn and castle wall surrounding the garden.

The Grade II listed property which was a former hotel is housed in one of the best locations in Conwy, with a raised position overlooking the historic walled town with unrivaled views of the Snowdonia peaks. The impressive castle also comes with a former lodge house and a detached three-story accommodation block – that features 26 bedrooms, many of which have en-suite facilities.

Bryn Corach was extended in the early 20th century with the detached building added in 1963. The estate agent, Dafydd Hardy, says this building is ‘in need of some repair and upgrading works’, but offers the potential for a conversion to holiday apartments or a .lucrative holiday letting business’.

They estate agent added: “Alternatively, planning permission is also in place to demolish the modern accommodation and reinstate the site to a family home.”

There is also a detached former lodge house, although in need of renovation, which could become a comfortable self-contained studio apartment. The lodge has a ground floor lounge, separate kitchen and shower room.

Inside the derelict home

The original structure of Bryn Corach House is listed for its social historical interest as a hotel and for its ”special architectural interest and definite character”.

The grand interior matches the impressive nature of its exterior, with original features such as high coved ceilings, open fireplaces and French windows that convey a periodic style.

Renovation works have already commenced on Bryn Corach and it now offers enormous potential to provide a beautiful, detached family home together with an “exciting business opportunity”.
