Mumbles Road, Mumbles, Swansea
For Sale £625,000
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 producers 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.
Wonderfully situated only moments from the infamous Mumbles promenade, this generous family home is ideal for seaside village life. The property is a substantial town house, organised over three floors and due to the elevated position, it benefits from fabulous sea and landmark views. You will journey up the steps and around the side of the property to enter the home into the spacious and light entrance hallway. The hallway itself has a copious amount of glass to enhance the feeling of space and brightness, it also houses masses of built in storage space.
The ground floor encompasses a great games room, which is versatile enough to be used as either a living space or additional bedroom. This room is generous, bright and has French doors leading out to the side courtyard area.
There is also a generous bedroom with high ceilings, Juliet balcony and has a fabulous en-suite wet room.
Rising to the first floor we discover the living areas which have those wonderful views over Mumbles and Swansea Bay. The open plan design of the living areas creates a naturally light, substantial social space. The L shaped area consumes a lounge, dining space and considerable kitchen. The lounge and dining areas have French doors which open out onto balconies, the sea and Oystermouth castle views to behold here are just wonderful. You will also be able to enjoy the views from inside while relaxing, dining or cooking.
The lounge and dining room fuse seamlessly together, they are generous in space and complimented by the French doors and balcony.
