A train station was available to buy at auction and was described as offering a “once in a lifetime” opportunity to potential buyers.
The Station House at Penmaenmawr in Conwy went up for auction at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on May 18 2017 with a guide price of between £125,000 and £150,000.
Auction House North West was delighted to sell this unique property for more than the Guide price.

Insulated walls, total rewire of the whole house with interlinked alarms on both floors, double fireboard ceiling in the commercial space, re-instated swan neck cornice throughout the A1 commercial ground floor, surround sound speaker ports/HDMI leads/Satellite coax all hidden cables, 2 new gas combi boilers and central heating throughout the property with smartphone controlled thermostats, disabled toilet with hand dryer, baby change table and distress alarm pull cord, fully tiled shower room with rainfall shower, fully tiled kitchen with metro tiles and extractor fan, log/coal fire stove with new flue liner, upstairs original fireplaces in bedrooms with new flue liners, carpeted throughout upstairs with wool-weave underlay, cctv cameras, original wide sanded & waxed pine floor on the commercial ground floor.
The train Station was named after Penmaenmawr mountain, which stands above the sea immediately west of the town.
Much of its formerly rounded top (with an old hill-fort) has been quarried away, leaving the present-day lower flat top.
The town was bypassed by the A55 Expressway in the 1980s, losing its old Edwardian period promenade in the process, which was largely replaced by a modern one. Penmaenmawr is noted for its spectacular mountain and coastal walks. Nearby are the popular attractions of Bwlch Sychnant (Sychnant Pass) and Mynydd y Dref, and the town also lies partly within Eryri, the Snowdonia National Park.
“Whether you are a train enthusiast or looking for a mixed residential or commercial investment that could produce an income of over £20,000 per annum this is your chance to buy a piece of North Wales and railway history.”
