Just a stone’s throw from a popular sandy beach, this family home has plenty of space inside and out, offering fine living close to Wales’ second city
There are some places that provide the best of all worlds. And this sizeable family home has sandy beaches and open space in abundance, yet is just a short drive from all the benefits of city life. Greenacres is situated on the southeastern corner of the Gower Peninsula, just beyond Swansea’s urban sprawl, amid rolling rural landscape bordered by idyllic bays and rocky coastline.
It’s an excellent retreat for those who want to enjoy open landscapes while staying within arm’s length of a huge choice of bars, restaurants and entertainment.
The house itself is accessed through electronic gates from a quiet lane above Caswell Bay. The large kitchen, with fully fitted units, has a raised dining area. Next to this is a formal L-shaped dining room, as well as a lounge, which enjoys plenty of natural light and access to a conservatory to while away those sunny afternoons.
Also on the ground floor is a sitting room with garden views and a marble fireplace, plus a games room with a bar, access to a patio, and enough space inside for a full-size pool table.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms. The master room comes with plenty of built-in storage space, an en-suite bathroom with corner bath, and its own balcony looking out towards the Bristol Channel. Another bedroom features views over nearby Brandy Cove.
The property has around five acres of land and is ideal for those who wish to keep horses, as there’s a large paddock adjoining a timber stable block with a holding pen.
The green-fingered among you will also appreciate the big gardens front and back, plus a greenhouse, orchard and vegetable patches. There are also several outbuldings and a spacious garage.
The Gower Peninsula is a great location for those who enjoy the water. There are plenty of watersports available here, as well as the opportunity to find your own quiet spot next to the lapping waves.
Over the hill from Greenacres is the popular village of Mumbles which, along with a healthy range of bars and eateries, has a scenic lighthouse and the historic ruins of Oystermouth Castle.
If you need to venture into the city, Swansea centre is less than 20 minutes’ drive away, while Cardiff is an hour and 20 minutes along the M4.
Opportunities to snap up a property with several acres of land in such a popular location don’t come along very often. Whether you have a large family, horses, an interest in gardening, or you want to be close to beaches while enjoying the convenience of urban amenities, then Greenacres has so much to offer.
