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