Stun­ning views and a su­perb in­te­rior too . . . JOANNE RIDOUT ex­plores a great fam­ily home

Llanelli Star - - HOT HOUSE -

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.
