Mumbles Road, Mumbles, Swansea
For Sale £650,000
The original building has a wealth of history in the Mumbles community, it was originally a school. Eventually, when the 'old school', previously a Church school, Church boys club, Little theatre and Badminton club became vacant and available for rent the Mumbles Motor Boat & Fishing Club decided to rent the building from the Somerset Trust.
As mentioned the original building was also the first home of Swansea Little Theatre, or Swansea Stage Society as it was then known in 1924. Some famous feet trod the boards there - Dylan Thomas was a member and he appeared in five productions in the early 1930s. It is reported that Dylan's theatrical career came to an abrupt end after he ignored the producer's warning not to slip off to the Antelope for a drink during rehearsals. The producer is supposed have told Dylan, 'if you go, don't come back'. Dylan didn't come back. and was sacked for it.
We are now at present day, and the building consists of three properties which have
all been lovingly developed by the same family. The three properties hold a sense of
uniqueness to each other while presenting an excellent standard of finish. The family
have developed the building whilst being mindful that it is set in a conservation area, this means that the design and finish has been executed in a sympathetic way to the beautiful surrounding area of The Gower.
