EL­E­GANCE AND STYLE

This sub­stan­tial home with Gower views of­fers a chance to live in an ex­clu­sive property, writes JOANNE RIDOUT

Llanelli Star - - HOT HOUSE -

THERE are sweep­ing coun­try­side views across Bish­op­ston Val­ley to greet you at this sub­stan­tial pe­riod property, and the new owner will own eight acres of it, in­clud­ing a pad­dock.

The space on of­fer in­side this pretty pe­riod property is sweep­ing too, with space and light be­ing the two most no­tice­able fea­tures, pro­vid­ing a back­drop on which the many pe­riod fea­tures can shine.

The hall­way, with its check­ered floor and sub­stan­tial stair­case, sets the grand tone and whets any vis­i­tor’s ap­petite for the trea­sures that lie within.

One of the stand-out pe­riod pieces is the or­nate and highly un­usual fire­place in the main draw­ing room, so no­tice­able it de­mands at­ten­tion and will take any oc­cu­pant’s eyes away from the vast bay win­dow fram­ing the gor­geous coun­try views.

The or­nate de­tail con­tin­ues in many of the other six re­cep­tion

rooms, in­clud­ing the lounge with a win­dow so large it pro­vides a win­dow seat which a whole foot­ball team could use at the same time.

Through­out the home there are pic­ture rails, cor­nic­ing, deep skirt­ing boards, fire­places and par­quet floor­ing.

The kitchen com­bines shak­er­style units with at­trac­tive quarry floor tiles and a show­piece Aga nes­tled into the chim­ney breast. This heart of the home kitchen diner is an open-plan space that also opens out onto the gar­den, en­sur­ing the out­doors and in­doors are well con­nected.

One room that is par­tic­u­larly appealing is the li­brary and study, a more in­ti­mate space show­cas­ing warm wood floor­ing, a fea­ture fire­place and di­rect ac­cess to the gar­den via a wall of win­dows and French doors.

The gar­den it­self has a mas­sive pa­tio span­ning the width of the property where a new owner can drink in the views as well as re­lax with a glass of some­thing cold.

There are also nu­mer­ous out­build­ings within the eight-acre gar­den that could be­come any­thing a new owner de­sires, lim­ited only by imag­i­na­tion, bud­get and plan­ning con­sent.

And when all that gar­den­ing and ren­o­vat­ing has worn out the new owner, there are four bath­rooms to choose from for a quick freshen up, and a choice of six bed­rooms for a nap. On the sec­ond floor there’s the bonus ad­di­tion of a vast loft room that could be­come the ul­ti­mate games room, stu­dio or workspace.

This gen­er­ous pe­riod property near Bish­op­ston, Swansea is on the mar­ket for of­fers over £1.8 mil­lion with es­tate agent Fine & Coun­try, call them on 01792 367 301 for fur­ther de­tails.
