Llanelli Star - - Hot House -

ALTHOUGH this home is a stylish and con­tem­po­rary prop­erty, its 1930s past has not been for­got­ten.

The beau­ti­ful, orig­i­nal par­quet floor­ing in the hall has been re­stored and pro­vides a vis­ual warm wel­come to vis­i­tors.

The pic­ture rails re­main and are well used to dis­play the cur­rent own­ers’ col­lec­tion of art­work, whilst the tra­di­tional stair­case spin­dles and newel post pro­vide a clas­sic de­sign route to the first floor.

But the cur­rent own­ers have mod­ernised this spa­cious four-bed­room semi into a light and fresh, warm and bright fam­ily home.

The use of crisp white and fresh blue through­out the down­stairs of the prop­erty pays homage to the home’s lo­ca­tion, be­ing only a few min­utes’ drive to the lo­cal beaches of Caswell Bay and Pwlldu Bay.

This main neu­tral colour palette, which also in­cludes warm tones of cream, gives the home a feel­ing of beach­side liv­ing and is en­hanced by the use of tac­tile, nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als.

The stripped-pine mantel, wood floor­ing, slate hearth and ex­posed brick fire­place all com­bine per­fectly to en­hance the nat­u­ral, light and bright at­mos­phere of the home. The cream and honey-toned wooden fur­ni­ture pieces suc­cess­fully blend seam­lessly into the over­all nat­u­ral and neu­tral theme.

This warm and re­lax­ing nat­u­ral theme flows into the im­pres­sive open­plan kitchen/diner, with the fresh blue walls div­ing deep into the sea­side theme.

This fam­ily-fo­cused room opens into the rear gar­den via a set of French doors and this makes the space ap­pear even big­ger, en­tic­ing the eye to look to the view be­yond.

For more for­mal din­ing, this home can of­fer a sec­ond re­cep­tion room which flows into a sunny con­ser­va­tory, which then flows into the gar­den via a set of bi­fold doors.

Cur­rently this din­ing room is be­ing used as a play­room.

Up­stairs, there are four dou­ble bed­rooms, with the mas­ter at the front en­joy­ing views from a sub­stan­tial bay win­dow.

In this room the cur­rent own­ers have con­tin­ued the fresh blue, white and cream colour palette but have used a softer tone and em­braced the clas­sic and el­e­gant French château style of in­te­rior.

The soft pas­tel tones con­tinue through­out the re­main­ing bed­rooms.

Out­side, the rear gar­den is a good size and in­cludes two decked ar­eas for re­lax­ing and en­joy­ing the peace­ful view as this prop­erty is sur­rounded by hedgerow and not rooftops.

There is plenty of park­ing on the drive­way as this house is rather unique — its front gar­den is al­most the same size as its rear gar­den.

But should a new owner want to tuck their car in at night, there is a garage too.

This four-bed­room semi-de­tached home in a cen­tral Bish­op­ston lo­ca­tion is on the mar­ket with es­tate agent John Fran­cis Mum­bles for of­fers in the re­gion of £355,000. Call 01792 713351 for fur­ther de­tails.
