Rare seaside house up for sale in one of Wales' prettiest locations

Asia's Tech News Daily

There are some streets and locations in Wales that have become not only instantly recognisable but also a hot spot for homes.

The pretty pastel facades of the clifftop period properties in Tenby, the millionaire dream homes that hug Benar Headland above Abersoch and the distinctive period facades of Cardiff Bay’s Windsor Esplanade are three prime examples.

But becoming a famous location also means the properties there become prime real estate too, maybe commanding a higher than average price.

It can be rare for any property in these landmark locations to come onto the market on a regular basis, so when they do they are usually snapped up by buyers hungry to bag themselves a slice of somewhere extra special.

One coastal town that has rightly pushed its way into the ‘instantly recognisable properties’ category is Aberaeron.

The myriad of colourful houses that surround the harbour have become a central theme within this gentile Georgian town.

From deep and moody navy to pretty pastel pink, the colourful facades have made this Ceredigion coastal location a favourite on social media, with thousands of visitors snapping and sharing their own photographic works of art across their online platforms.

And who can blame them – the harbour area is pretty as a picture, with the houses providing a rainbow backdrop to the boats bobbing about on the crystal clear water.

It is rare for one of these period homes on one of the main streets that flank the harbour to come to the market, and when they do their seaside location is reflected in the price.

According to Zoopla, the current average property value in Wales is £215,994 but in this most attractive spot on the Cardigan Bay coastline it’s £255,281.

Get closer to the sea and the main roads that flank the harbour add even more to the asking price – on Quay Parade it’s currently £373,916, on Belle Vue Terrace it’s £443,990 and on Beach Parade it’s £396,959.

In the last five years there have been just six property sales in these named, prime residential streets.

Facing the harbour rather than flanking it, is a row of terraces that forms the lower part of Belle Vue Gardens called Portland Place.

Within this small section of the street there has been just one sale in the past seven years, according to Rightmove.

This house for sale was the impressive, sunny yellow 10-bed, three-storey property that bookmarks one end of this distinctive terrace.

So finding a house on the market here, on one of these roads that surrounds the harbour, is above average in price and a proven rarity.

Another rarity is to find one of these colourful houses for sale that provides a potentially flexible future for the new owner.

At the other end of the Portland Place terrace, thought to date back to around 1855, you will find a lovely lilac house that continues the delightful symmetrical Georgian facades that this row of homes offers.

This vision in purple has the arched front entrance with transom window, sash windows and slate roof of its neighbours but also has fancy architraves above the windows that not all the homes in this exclusive row can offer.

According to website British Listed Buildings, the pretty Georgian house, in conjunction with its neighbours, achieved its Grade II* listing from Cadw in 1961, amended in 1986, for their group value as a ‘particularly well preserved terrace’.

But inside the house is a bit of a surprise because it’s not a house at all, it is two apartments.

Both flats are self-contained and have two bedrooms, plus use of the private rear walled garden and there’s a double garage onsite too.

One flat can boast a staircase down to a bonus cellar – very handy for storing any outdoor equipment that can’t fit into the garage.

Each apartment has been given a modern, neutral makeover that is perfect for the rental market.

But if this was to be converted back into a single dwelling, subject to planning permission, the new owner could have the best fun putting their own interior design stamp on the property.

Imagine reinstating showcase fireplaces, feature cornicing, period appropriate fixtures and fittings, and creating an elegant Georgian interiors scheme worthy of the splendour of the era.

Help with your hunt for a home here:

Of course, there’s the option of living in one apartment and renting the other one out full-time as residential or on a weekly basis to holiday-makers and just finessing your section of the property into a dream home.

Or you could be lucky enough to relocate to this glorious coastal town permanently and bring another generation of the family with you, to all live together but within separate units.

And who wouldn’t want to either stay in the town as a local resident or relocate and put down roots in this special seaside spot?

And more and more people are realising this town is a tantalising proposition for a home.

In 2020 there were a number of places in Wales that rose above all others to be the most popular area for people looking for a new property, according to property portal Rightmove.

Analysing the data from the site, five towns and their immediate surrounding area were the most popular with people either searching for a new home, or at least dreaming about it.

As well as New Quay, Cardigan, Narberth and Ammanford, Aberaeron was included in this list. Find out more about this here.

The town is well-placed for exploring the countryside, coast and waterways of Ceredigion, right on the Wales Coast Path and The Coastal Way.

And back amongst the pretty period properties, the town can offer a choice of independent shops, craft centres and places to eat and relax.

And when you’re feeling more energetic, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy and a wealth of wildlife to discover, including the famous pods bottlenose dolphins of Cardigan Bay.

The dolphins obviously know too that this area is one of the gems of the Welsh coast, just as pretty but less well-known than places like Tenby, and all the better for it.

The purple paradise slice of Aberaeron is for sale for £470,000 with estate agent Morgan & Davies, call their Aberaeron branch on 01545 571600 to find out more.
