“As soon as we walked in to the kitchen on Oxford street, I knew it would be the heart of the home. Everyone who walks in says ‘wow this is lovely’ it not only looks lovely, it feels lovely. Its got beautiful sunset views through Porthkerry trees and it’s got enough room to eat as a family and entertain.
Every weekend we choose a different beach to walk to, The Knap, Porthkerry or Barry Island. Even on the wet days there’s a big park called ‘the wreck’ behind the house which no matter the weather, it burns lots of energy.
The garden provides privacy and space but is so manageable and practical, we’ve had so many evenings with a campfire, stargazing & bbqing. The living room is cosy and with the log burner going it’s the perfect spot to relax after a beach walk.
It’s not a house, it’s a home, it’s a memory maker and that’s what makes this spot so special”.
