Description

Delano, Gannock Park, Deganwy, Conwy, LL31 9PZ

Agent and vendor comments: –

”Sixties modernism with total seclusion….. almost floating on air, with a rare privacy that envelops inside and out”

”It was love at first sight when they stepped into the house and were dazzled and captivated by the spectacular views”

”The west facing balcony and extensive glazing maintain a constant dialogue with the
surrounding coastal-scape, framing the impeccable view”

”Wonderful panoramic views sweep out across the picturesque Conwy Estuary from the roof terrace, with the red sands of Conwy Morfa Beach and the Championship Conwy Caernarfonshire Golf Course in the foreground”

”Versatile accommodation which allows for multi-generational occupation and amazing scope to provide bespoke lifestyle living”

Delano is a striking example of a mid-20th century modernistic split-level home, which almost feels as though it is suspended in air, especially when you walk out onto the vast terrace and are engulfed by the spectacular panoramic coastline vista. Located within a very private garden setting, accessed by a concealed shared drive, off the iconic Gannock Park circular loop of distinctive and exclusive homes.

Constructed in 1965 by the local flamboyant builder Vera Fletcher and with later extensions completed by Anwyl Construction. The current owner acquired the property in 1989 because ”It was love at first sight when they stepped into the house and were dazzled and captivated by the spectacular views”

We believe ‘Delano’ is named after a picturesque island, set in the middle of Lake Cache,
Ontario, Canada. The idiosyncratic design was typical of the visionary architects of the time
and the builder’s exuberant personality.

The layout and flow of the versatile accommodation has changed substantially over the following 30 years and now offers an eclectic style with interconnecting rooms filled with light from the extensive windows which frame and enhance the views. The vast majority of the 3780sq ft of accommodation runs across the first-floor level with five possible Reception Rooms and or two/four Bedrooms, plus an ‘Allmilmo’ bespoke German Fitted Kitchen, Home Office/Dressing Room, two En-Suite Bath/Shower Rooms, additional Shower Room and Cloakroom. Then there is the lower Ground Floor Area which offers Two Double Garages – the original is now used as a Multi-Purpose Room with an extensive range of fitted base, island and full-length wall cupboards and a hidden away Man Cave/Office/Workshop and W.C., plus a spacious Subfloor Storage/Workshop or perfect, because of it’s ambient temperature, as a Wine Cellar.

We believe ‘Delano’ is named after a picturesque island, set in the middle of Lake Cache, near Ontario, Canada and the idiosyncratic design was typical of the experimental architects of the time and the builders exuberant personality. Located within a very private garden setting, off the iconic Gannock Park circular loop of distinctive and exclusive homes, accessed by a concealed private drive which leads down to a parking and turning area in front of the garages.
