Amazingly, it’s the first time on the market for this 1930s art deco property in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire. A rare thing indeed.
Yes, almost 80 years on and this house is still in the same family, having been built ‘to exacting standards’ in 1939 by the current owner’s father.
As you would expect from that, the house is in fairly original condition too, with no major changes to the house over those decades. That’s very unusual.
Not that I’m talking about a time capsule, although there are plenty of original features that would delight those who appreciate the era.
The design itself of course, with its mix of angles and curves, as well as the original Crittall windows. But there are plenty of little details inside too.
Those include original geometric tile designs and woodwork, different art deco cornice designs in each room, light fittings, original enamel bath and polished chrome fittings in the bathroom and what look like the original fireplaces too. Plenty to enjoy and plenty to preserve in this one.
Of course, not everything has been preserved. A look at the kitchen and a glance at the central heating tells you that. But those are changes you might expect. Overall, this is still very much a house of the 1930s.
A spacious one too. The entrance hall access two good-sized reception rooms, with a further hallway, the kitchen, boiler room, WC and an integral garage also on the ground floor.
Head up the ‘sweeping’ staircase to the first floor and you will find three bedrooms, two of which are described as ‘generous double sized’ rooms. There’s also a feature balcony area off the third bedroom. Finally, there’s the bathroom and its original detailing.
Looks like a good-sized plot outside too, with lawned gardens to the front and rear, along with a private driveway, workshop and shed.
£230,000 is the asking price if you fancy taking this one on.
