Bryn Mel Manor which overlooks the stunning Menai Straits, opposite Bangor Pier and Port Penrhyn, was completed in 1899 after ten years of construction. The house had been originally built for William Imrie of the White Star Shipping Line. Mr Imrie and his family lived in Bryn Mel until his death in 1906 at which time the estate was bought by Eric and Eleanor Platt of Llanfairfechan.
In 1914 the ten-acre estate was sold to Mr and Mrs Edmund Johnston to be used as their summer home. A full history of the Manor house is available in the apartment in the form of a framed document.
Following a varied history, the Manor was converted into luxury apartments maintaining some of its original features and character throughout.
Bryn Mel Manor is surrounded by 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens which incorporates a long winding driveway. Apartment 3, is situated on the ground floor at the front of the Manor with lovely garden and sea views.
