Newton Road, Mumbles, Swansea
Sold (STC) £800,000
A truly breath taking castellated property which was born into the Gothic revival period in 1870. The world renowned sibling architects Benjamin & Alfred Bucknell built this epic property drawing inspiration from the work of the French architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc.
This imposing building is set within approx. An acre and delicately eclipses Underhill Park in Mumbles.
The long sweeping driveway will lead you to the rear of the property where there is ample parking. To the front of the property there is a generous lawned area with an abundance of mature trees and a tall hedgerow creating a wealth of privacy, so much so that you wouldn't necessarily even know that the house is sitting there.
You will fail to stand in the shadow of this dramatic house and not look up in ore at the rubble stone and Bath stone dressing and the steeply-pitched slate roof.
The property is Grade II Listed.
This impressive properties main entrance front faces the hillside to the north and will welcome you into the property via the double fronted doors. You will enter the grand hallway which is laid with vintage mosaic tiles and where the grand staircase stands proudly guiding your eye up to the upper floors.
Over the four floors, this property presents an abundance of generous, multi faceted rooms with a wealth of historic character. You will be presented with high ceilings and sash windows, all of which provide a strong foundation to put your own flair on what is an exceptional unique home. There are six to seven rooms on each floor with majority of the rooms looking out through the front of the property and so poses the spectacular views over the mature trees, lawned area and Underhill Park.
Externally the property boasts extensive grounds and considering the property is within a few minutes walk of the heart of Mumbles you will feel like you are in your very own world.
The ground to the front is a substantial lawned area framed with mature trees and
hedgerow which give an immense amount of privacy. There is a stone outbuilding
used for storage to the side of the property and parking for at least three cars to
the rear. At the opposite side of the property is a lovely substantial patio area.
