Humble, charming little Wales is a land of lusty men’s choirs, salty harbors, slate-roofed villages, stunning mountains and stout castles.In the Middle Ages, the standard castle was a simple stone building (“keep”) on a hill (“motte”), surrounded by a wall that enclosed a yard (or “bailey”) where the people lived.Today it boasts the best medieval walls in Britain, a protective castle dramatically situated on a rock overlooking the sea, and an appealing harbor front that locals treat like a town square.Historically accurate (if facsimile) household items bring the rooms to life, as does the refreshing lack of velvet ropes — you’re free to wander as you imagine life in this house.Modeled after the striped, angular walls of ancient Constantinople, the castle, though impressive, was never finished and never really used.Today, it feels genuinely Welsh, with a fine harbor front, lots of colorful shops and eateries, a fascinating Victorian prison (now a museum), and the remains of an idyllic castle.While Beaumaris shows medieval castle engineering at its best — four rings of defense, a moat and a fortified dock — problems in Scotland changed the king’s priorities before his vision could be completed.The site was overgrown until the last century, when it was cleaned up to create a parklike space, with pristine lawns and a classic moat.Because it’s harder to get here, it’s less crowded, making your visit feel more authentic.

- Just Approved: Clear road map leads way through complicated condo purchase
Friday Aug 4, 2017
Clear road map leads way through complicated condo purchaseHolmgren quickly determined that the buyer didn’t have enough readily available liquid funds to make the down payment that would produce her desired monthly payment.Since she had substantial equity in her current residence, Holmgren suggested that she refinance her loan to pull out more funds and to make that payment more affordable.Because the offer was so clean (short close, no contingencies, large down payment), it was quickly accepted.The buyer was well-qualified from the standpoint of credit history and income despite being self-employed, which is frequently a source of qualification problems.Yet Holmgren suspected that the underwriter would question the move from El Cerrito to Oakland because of the relative public safety/public schools reputations of El Cerrito and Oakland, and because the buyer’s existing home was a detached home, considered in the underwriting world to be a superior form of residence to a condo.Holmgren had the buyer write a detailed letter explaining her preference to live in the vibrant downtown Oakland community, emphasizing the many amenities of the condo project and how that area better fit her lifestyle.
