Situated in one of the area's most sought after locations sits The Garth - a truly outstanding example of the later part of Arts & Crafts architecture and interior design. Built circa 1913 for a prominent, local solicitor the property through the decades has been lovingly maintained and cared for by the current and previous owners. Offering numerous original features such as claygate fireplaces, stained and leaded glass windows, cornice and ornamental ceilings, the list is endless. The principle reception rooms lead off the grand reception hall with oak, wall paneling and impressive oak staircase which then leads to the galleried landing where there are four, very well proportioned bedrooms along with bathroom facilities. Another note of interest are the views over Parc Howard to the front and from the rear overlooking the town and more importantly over as far as the North Gower penninsula. Needless to say viewing is ESSENTIAL in order to appreciate all this property has to offer.
