Some TV property shows state that often if you want space in your new home but have a set budget, you may need to compromise if you want your dream location too — something’s got to give. But if your buying budget is at a level that is eye-watering for most people, you are in the position to expect and demand both.

And this handsome home can certainly offer both aspects of this dream combination. It’s got six bedrooms, four storeys and is so large the estate agent selling the home suggests it could even become a boutique hotel as well as a home.

And this is because the house ticks the location box too, nestled within a residential area in a popular village, walking distance to a beach, and at the particular gateway to one of Wales’ most stunning coastlines, Gower Peninsula , the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Full of doors out to the garden and levels of space

The house calls Mumbles its home and is located just an amble away from the centre of this popular village that has expanded to become a town that offers restaurants, shops, bars and pubs as well as strolls along the promenade.

Mumbles has become a hotspot for people wanting the convenience as well as the beauty of the city, coast and countryside surrounding them. One direction along the promenade or road that hugs the bay gets you to the popular seaside city of Swansea, the other path gets you into the heart of Gower and its abundance of amazing beaches plus bays, islands and inlets.

The coastal town is regularly included in lists of the top places to live in Wales and the UK, and can be found most recently in the 2020 best places to reside compiled by The Sunday Times, find out more about that here . In 2018 Mumbles actually bagged the top spot to live in the UK due to the creation of the multi-million-pound Oyster Wharf development which has transformed the seafront with a host of new restaurants.

As well as the town’s newest developments for visitors and residents, the location scored highly on ‘its parks, beaches and sports clubs, this is a great place to bring up children, and you might bump into a few famous faces whilst strolling down the pier’.

Very spacious surrounding garden with multiple levels – just like the house

In 2020 Mumbles was named as Britain’s top coastal house price hotspot by property portal Rightmove, who stated at the time that the town and wider town area’s average property asking price had risen by 47% since 2015.

The company stated that this was a bigger five-year increase than any other seaside area in Great Britain. Find out more about that here.

But arguably the particular pinnacle of the accolades for the area came in 2022 when Mumbles was also named as one of the 12 ‘coolest places to live in the UK’ in a list compiled by The Times.

The town secured its place among the ‘coolest postcodes to move to in 2022’ as being the best place to relocate for ‘stylish seasiders’, offering them ‘sand, sea and beautiful sunsets’ and a ‘booming foodie scene’. Find out more about the cool list here.

Treetop views make you forget you’re in a busy town

Sociable terrace with winter fireplace and outdoor BBQ

And this huge house arguably couldn’t be more well positioned to enjoy all Mumbles and Gower can offer but it is not squashed into the centre of the hub, meaning space inside plus out is not compromised and confined.

Elevated above the road, the property’s position reveals some treetop views that might be a surprise to find within such a popular area.

The house is a beast of a building situated within a tiered garden that offers multiple areas for alfresco dining and plenty of partying, as well as relaxing in the sunshine or bathed in shade.

Guests won’t have to worry about parking for the party either : there might be double yellow lines on the main road outside but climb the property’s driveway and you find ample areas to pop the motor.

Maybe the centre of the garden is the large terrace flanked by a stone wall with clever built-in bench seating, an integrated waterfall feature, and the surely very popular addition of an outside BARBECUE and stone fireplace.

Main lounge with pretty period fireplace and bespoke window seat in the bay

This urban mansion might look fairly recent in its construction at first glance, but it actually dates back in parts to the Victorian era. Inside, the layout has been carefully throughout to contribute to the best flow of spaces and people that a modern family has come to expect within a mainly period property wrapper.

The arched, double front door is found at the centre of the front facing facade of the house, which can also delight with an exposed stone lower floor worth exploring later, and a double-height box bay window stack.

But there are also multiple ways to enter and exit this versatile home, and one enchanting route invites you to wander up some stone steps and a garden path that passes, and gives glimpses to, at least two inviting outdoor terraces where the threshold of the house seamlessly gives way to direct access to relish the garden.

The entrance foyer leads into an inner room called the grand hallway but it could easily be classed as another living room, with its own fireplace, bay windowpane with a delightful seat located into its structure, along with a set of French doors out onto one of those sunny garden terraces.

Opposite the hallway is another beast of a room and this one is currently dedicated to formal dining. It is arguably the space packed with the most period features, from the ornate ceiling, cornicing and picture rail above you to the stripped floorboards below you, and the huge windows and period fire place in-between.
