A MUST VIEW to appreciate the fantastic position, stunning sea views and development potential of this well presented 2 bedroomed home.
The Owners Words
Gwyn Merghs position offers all year round pleasure in the scenery, whether its a beautiful sunny day, with calm seas and a gentle breeze through the house or a wild stormy day with the waves crashing up the beach. The constant sound of the sea is magical. The views are never the same, but always spectacular, with colours ranging from deep red/orange to silver to aqua marine. At night time twinkling lights on the opposite cliff and down through the village are friendly, and you know that you live in a beautiful, safe, environment.
Gwyn Mergh offers an incredible opportunity to acquire an amazing position, with gorgeous sea views, just moments from the beach. The current home is a very well presented 2 bedroomed dormer bungalow, with good room proportions and layout to appreciate its commanding elevated plot. This property has served as a wonderful home and has proven success as a holiday let too. However, the plots brilliant position screams potential to be maximised with redevelopment (subject to the necessary planning permission).
In recent years there has been an array of bespoke seaside dream homes created on the quiet Battery Hill. The peaceful location, on a no-through-road further enhanced by the tranquil views have made this a hot spot to secure a waterside plot. It takes little imagination to see the incredible potential and different options for the plot to either tweak an existing home or start from scratch. The different levels of the current home offer a taste of the areas that should be utilised further to maximise the amazing outlook. Most notably on this surprisingly deep plot is the upper garden area that enjoys views over the roof tops from behind the property, perfect for an enclosed private terrace to the rear of the plot.
Steps lead up to the front of the property which has been landscaped as split level raised decking which provides a tranquil low maintenance garden to relax and enjoy the exquisite sea and beach views. A handy side porch/boot room entrance leads to an inner entrance hall. Sensibly, the primary reception rooms command the best views, dominating the front of the property. Double doors lead from the dining room/bedroom to the decked area and another set connect this versatile space to the living room allowing for an open flow. The living room offers sensational views via a floor to ceiling bay window gazing out to sea and across the bay, views you could lose hours wondering into.
A nicely presented kitchen comprises matching floor and wall cabinetry, inset 1 and a half sink, sky light and glazed brick wall to the rear, with space for free standing appliances. The adjoining room is another great versatile room and leads outside to a shed and steps to the first-floor rear decking. Finally, on the ground floor is a stylish shower room, with full tiled walls, double shower and heated towel rail.
The entire first floor comprises the master en-suite bedroom. A fantastic triple aspect room, light, airy, sensational sea views and access to first floor decking to appreciate the outlook further.
