“Plas Newydd is a large four-bedroom home in a stunning countryside setting," he said.

"While the property needs modernising, it provides a new buyer with a chance renovate the hall back to its original glory. It’s size and location make it a good family home with plenty of outdoor space, including nearly five and half acres of pastureland and a 3.74 acre orchard.

“The land could be utilised for equestrian or other livestock purposes.”

He added: "Constructed of brick under a slate roof, the property retains several of its original features such as ceiling cornices and pictures rails in the reception rooms, the mosaic quarry tiled floor in the hallway, the stained glass windows in the enclosed entrance porch, and the servants bells in the kitchen.
