Designer home inspired by famous North Wales architect

Cefn Cottage is one of the finest Arts and Crafts houses in the region and it's now on the market

Cefn Cottage is on sale for £799,000

A designer home built in the style of a famous Conwy architect is up for sale. Cefn Cottage is tucked away on a quiet country lane between the villages of Tyn-Y-Groes, Pontwgan and Rowen in Conwy.

The detached property is inspired by the designs of Herbert Luck North, who is one of the most important architects to have come from North Wales in the 20th century.

North was a champion of the Arts and Crafts movement which stood for traditional craftsmanship, and often used medieval, romantic, or folk styles of decoration. The style flourished across the UK and Europe towards the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, and is particularly prevalent in Conwy where North lived.
