ROOMS WITH A VIEW!
Stunning views and a superb interior too . . . JOANNE RIDOUT explores a great family home
MOST people would be very happy with a large and luscious front garden, and if it comes with a view too, then even better, but what if it comes with the gorgeous Gower coastline and Oxwich Bay across the road; that might just be perfect.
So there are a few cows and cars to pass by when walking from the front door to the coastal path at this detached house in Southgate, but it’s undeniable that the sea is the most significant neighbour for this home.
Spread over three floors, this substantial six-bedroom family home has an impressive sweeping driveway through the landscaped shrubbery and lawns, with the mesmerising sea views as a backdrop.
The view inside is pretty special too. Obviously the main lounge and three of the bedrooms that are situated at the front of the house make the most of the stunning views via triple pane windows and a big bay window.
But the rooms at the rear of the property don’t lose out, looking out over the pretty back garden and the Gower countryside beyond.
One of the showstoppers of this home, besides the waterside location, is the generous kitchen diner.
This contemporary space is zoned into kitchen and dining areas with direct access into the garden via bifold doors. This indoor outdoor design creates a light and airy feel to the area, but the crowning glory of the room’s design is the double height vaulted ceiling complete with exposed beams and statement chandelier. This sociable space also leads into a comfortable lounge area via an open double doorway. This area houses a log burner and offers a cosy semi openplan space.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms enjoying the water views, but the master can be found at the back of the property, as here there is the space for an integrated dressing room including built-in wardrobes and an ensuite shower room.
As the master bedroom occupies the rear gable end of the property, the owners have cleverly opened the space up into the roof rafters, creating another double-height space that feels light and luxurious.
The loft space has also been transformed into a double bedroom with a bathroom boasting a roll-top bath angled so that any lucky occupant can admire the sea view; arguably the best spot in the whole house.
This beautiful home is on the market for £895,000 with estate agents Fine & Country Swansea, call them on 01792 367301 to find out more.
