MUST-SEA VIEWS TO SAVOUR
There’s really nothing quite like the seaside. The clear waters and shallow bays along parts of the Swansea and Gower coastline offers hidden and much-loved spots as well as some very special properties with spectacular views. PETER SLEE has been to visit
FOR many living by sea is in their DNA. Some crave it, some can’t live without it and many are making the transition from city to waterfront idyll. For a number of purchasers it’s the ultimate lifestyle choice. In most cases the view is more important to buyers than the property itself. After all, you can perhaps alter the property, but you can’t change the outlook.
If you’re searching for a different, calmer, pace of life swapping polluted streets and daily commutes for saline air and walks on the beach or investing in a holiday home, then maybe this beauty might just inspire you to set sail towards your dream sea view home. Seawinds in Bryn Terrace, Mumbles, will have you jumping out of bed to
open the curtains each morning. It’s impressive panoramas across both Mumbles and Swansea Bay will leave you completely mesmerised, say agents Dawsons. The three-storey detached property is at the end of a long driveway. Walk in through its front door and into a characterful and generous hallway. The lounge has a traditional feel to it, with a substantial bay window really showcasing those fabulous sea views yet again.
Dawsons’ Tom Hope says: “There are lovely wooden floors and a wood burning fireplace for those nights which demand a cosier atmosphere. A balcony sits off the lounge, with ample room to sit/entertain and is encased with a glass balustrade which means you can enjoy those views uninterrupted.
“You can also utilise the dining area which lies openly with the lounge and leads into the kitchen, a modern country design with its shaker units, granite worktops, double Rangemaster, room for an American-style fridge freezer, wine cooler and breakfast bar.”
Seawinds’ lower ground floor includes a generous double bedroom with a window to the front, framing the sea views. Next along is the study, a wine store and modern shower room. You have complete private access to this floor via a lovely sun terrace at the front of the house.
Tom Hope adds: “This arrangement has great flexibility within the home and would be ideal for the extended/ multi-generation family. You can utilise the lower ground floor as a private floor or simply cherished space away from the rest of the house providing the perfect guest accommodation or workspace.”
On the first floor is a master bedroom, again with those views, along with two other double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. It all stands in glorious, lush grounds complete with swimming pool and patio spot close to the Mumbles seafront yet still offering up the peace, quiet and privacy of a country property.
But it is those views offering an ever-changing landscape that are one of its biggest draws. Capturing it all from its gardens or windows – and with the wildlife, the waters of Swansea Bay and the countryside Seawinds sits in – that make it such a winner.
It is offered for sale at £950,000.
