Llywn Onn, Anglesey
Llwyn Onn is a Grade II listed building located on the outskirts of the famous village boasting the longest name in the world: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwll-llantisiliogogogoch.
Anglesey property seekers are offered modern living with a traditional twist. The plots available are an elegant selection of 11 Courtyard properties and 2 detached properties offering a serene rural retreat for homebuyers looking for a new home with character, providing the perfect blend of contemporary design within an established structure. Each of the homes is accompanied by landscaped low maintenance gardens and either a garage or allotted parking areas, whilst the interiors present open plan lounges, dining areas and kitchens.
“Llwynonn Farm, along with it’s farm manager’s house (Unit 8 in the current development), was built in 1857 as the home farm for Plas Llwynonn, the neighbouring country house built by Lady Willoughby de Broke in the same year. Both properties were then acquired by my family around the turn of the 20th century.
In 1984 I took over the farm from the Plas Newydd Estate, and was granted a long lease, later freehold, by my late father, Henry, 7th Marquess of Anglesey. Plas Newydd itself was built in the late 18th century by my ancestor, Henry William Paget, 2nd Earl of Uxbridge, soon to be made 1st Marquess of Anglesey in the battle honours after Waterloo, in 1815, at which he had been commander of the Allied Cavalry, and second-in-command to the Duke of Wellington. At the end of the battle one of the last cannon shots fired hit his right leg, necessitating its amputation above the knee. According to anecdote, he was close to the Duke of Wellington when his leg was hit, and exclaimed, “By God, sir, I’ve lost my leg!”, to which Wellington replied “By God, sir, so you have!”. His wooden leg is preserved to this day, in the house museum. The magnificent house and gardens, where I was brought up, are now owned and maintained by the National Trust.
As modern farming methods have changed so the need for the attractive array of comparatively small stone buildings at Llwynonn has gone. So it gives me great pleasure that the house and buildings are to be preserved for future generations by this tasteful residential development.”
