Tenure: Freehold

Elegant seaside residence. Grade II* Listed. Flexible accommodation. Currently 4 reception rooms &
5 bedrooms. Stunning position with superb views of bay, Castle beach & St Catherine's Island. Short walk to beach.


Location

The house is part of a fine, unique terrace of five large properties occupying a stunning coastal position with superb sea views.

Description

The house is part of a fine, unique terrace of five large properties built in c.1843-45 and is a mixture of stone, brick and rendered construction under a slate roof. No.6 is believed to have been built slightly later, but complete by c.1850.

Internally the house has a wealth of original features, one being the magnificent cantilevered geometric staircase, winding elegantly up to a glazed conical dome ceiling which illuminates the whole internal central area of the house. The property has mains gas central heating, modern refinements and provides a spacious five bedroom character family home. Externally there is an enclosed private, gated courtyard providing parking facilities together with private steps leading down to the beach. It is rare that such a fine house is available for purchase in Tenby and viewing is well recommended to anyone seeking a large private home in Tenby in an enviable location overlooking the beach and within a few minutes walk of the town centre.

The property also benefits from a flexible layout. The current owner has chosen to use the property as a 5 bedroom house with a basement kitchen. However, the property has two rooms on each floor and a central service duct. This allows future owners to re-locate the kitchen, (the kitchen has in the past been in both of the ground floor rooms at different times) use the basement as a possible flat (subject to planning) add en-suite facilities to some of the bedrooms or use some of the reception rooms as further bedrooms.
