A £3,000,000 luxury home in Abersoch has come on the market, making it the most expensive property for sale in North Wales. The four bedroom house is located on a road called Lon Golff due to its proximity to the golf course which is not far from the beach.
Construction on the state-of-the-art home was completed earlier this year and it is now looking for a new owner who can meet the asking price. Estate agents Beresford Adams claim the property “has exceptional architectural value reflecting the highest standards of workmanship from a highly reputable local builder”.
The high-end house is equipped with underfloor heating, photomatic solar heat exchanger, remotely monitored heat exchanger, CCTV and an integrated security alarm system , as well as other modern features such as a Tesla charging point. The airy design lets plenty of natural light into the open layout of the property.

A light oak effect tiled floor runs throughout the interior which includes the four spacious ground floor bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own luxurious shower rooms and fitted wardrobes, with the master suite having its own dressing room. A contemporary oak staircase with a glass balustrade leads to the first floor on a glass platform/landing.
The main living room/kitchen is located on this floor which is described in the listing as “the heart of the house”. This area leads to a balcony that overlooks the nearby golf course. The house is accessed by an electric gate which leads to an oak carport. The port is part of an outbuilding which includes its own bathroom.

Elsewhere in Abersoch, a small beach hut went up for sale for £200,000 last week. The hut has a private terrace which agents say offers “stunning sea views” out to St Tudwals Islands. And despite the lack of running water, mains drainage or electricity, buyers can be reassured that it offers “sufficient storage”.
The sum requested is £25,000 more than the previous highest asking price for one of Abersoch’s brightly colored beach huts. The £175,000 figure was a guide price, and it’s unclear what fee was ultimately agreed. The official record price stands at £160,000 for a bath cabin sold in 2017.
Naturally, the village is popular with owners of second homes. Earlier this month, tough new measures were announced on second homes in Wales. The measures will see the maximum level of council tax for second homes and long-term empty properties tripled to 300% from April 2023.
The current figure, as it stands, is 100%, which was paid on more than 23,000 properties in Wales last year, according to the Welsh Government. The measures will aim to address the problem of second homes and unaffordable housing faced by many communities in Wales, as set out in the cooperation agreement between the Welsh Government and Plaid Cymru.

Currently, properties available to let for at least 140 days, and which are actually rented for at least 70 days, will pay rates rather than council tax. The change will increase these thresholds to be available for hire for at least 252 days and actually rented for at least 182 days in a 12 month period.
This amendment aims to better demonstrate that the properties concerned are regularly rented out in the context of genuine holiday accommodation businesses making a substantial contribution to the local economy. The two changes follow a consultation process including business, the tourism industry and local communities, the Welsh Government said, and would represent more action taken to ensure people can find affordable accommodation where they need it. grown up.
