LINK TO PAST MAINTAINED
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.
