Located in a prime position in this much sought after area of Sketty, a beautiful residence set in stunning landscaped gardens of approximately 1 acre. The property is located within walking distance of the centre of Sketty, as well as Singleton Hospital, Singleton Park and Swansea University. The local colleges, new bay campus and Cwmdonkin Park are all easily accessible, and the beaches and coastal walks of both South and North Gower are only a short drive away. Approached via a private gated driveway the original house was built in 1832. Brynheulog has been owned by the current family since 1946 when it was originally a 14 room residence but was converted in the early 1950s when the property was split into two separate houses. The property retains many of its original features with beautiful ornate coving, a carved wooden staircase and open fireplaces. It boasts a 30' lounge, 23' dining room and five spacious bedrooms. In addition there is the benefit of a plot with planning permission for a detached property. Viewing is strictly by appointment with John Francis, Sketty office and is essential to fully appreciate this unique character property. EER F32
