SMALLEST HOUSE ON MON FOR SALE
Old Bangor Ferry House on market
THE oldest – and smallest – house in a town has been listed for sale... and for a tiny price too.
Potential buyers could now own their very own piece of Welsh history by bidding for the Porthaethwy/ Bangor Ferry House in Menai Bridge.
Later known as the Cambria Inn, the Grade II listed cottage was built in 1688 and sits just 50m from the banks of the Menai Strait with views of the waterfront.
It goes under the hammer with a guide price of £10,000-£15,000, but the new owner will need to fully renovate it.
Nestled away near the foot of the suspension bridge, it measures 98 square feet and has just one room, accessed through an undersized door, with an original grouted slate roof and hearth.
Details of the last occupants remain a mystery, but it is already hooked up to an electricity supply, though water and gas mains will need connecting.
Claire Blezard, spokesperson for Auction House, the firm handling the sale, said: “It has only just gone live on Saturday and we have been inundated with enquiries since then.”
It will be up for grabs at an auction at Bangor City FC on October 5 – more details on 01248 711991.
The property in Menai Bridge is up for auction next month
