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

Llanelli Star - - HOT HOUSE -

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.
