Whenever you hear an estate agent utter the phrase ‘It’s an architectural masterpiece’, your gut reaction is to take his words with a pinch of salt, then go and see the property with your own eyes.

But when it comes to Kingswood, the architectural mastery really is astounding. This, one can safely say, is a mansion built of glass.  It's stunning.

Commanding panoramic views over the sea from its elevated position in Northcliff, Tenby, Kingswood is a distinctive Huf Haus, which means it has been designed with distinctive glass exteriors and open-plan designs, prefabricated to the owner’s exact specifications.

Built in 2012/13 the property was meticulously planned to maximise the cliffside location and ensure unobstructed sea views from as many rooms as possible.

A gated entrance gives access to the driveway past beautifully landscaped grounds up to a large parking area with a triple garage.

Kingswood is immediately impressive with its characteristic post-and-beam architecture using laminated Nordic Spruce beams and acres of triple glazing with large roof overhangs. This helps to keep the summer sun off the glazing yet allows the low winter sunshine to fill the home with natural light and contribute to solar heat gain. External blinds throughout can also be used for shade and privacy.
