Plot of land with planning permission and detailed construction package


Positioned on the popular no through road ‘East Cliff’, in Pennard, the sizeable plot of number 23 sits on the southern coast of the Gower’s AONB. This is a rare opportunity to build an individual sustainable family home. The 0.35 acre vacant plot has Full Planning Permission and detailed construction package for a generous 5 bedroom house and outbuilding designed by local Architectural Practice, Raum.

​With its own private access and all the necessary permissions and conditions met to make an immediate start, this sale provides a unique opportunity to get straight into the building phase with local contractors having already expressed a strong interest in their involvement.

​The upside-down living arrangement capitalises on unbroken views out across the Bristol Channel with Oxwich Point being a notable framing feature to the view.

The Gower villages of Pennard + Southgate are popular for having the perfect balance of rural living whist being thoroughly accessible with only a 12 minutes’ drive to Mumbles and 25 minutes to Swansea.

With a friendly primary school within the catchment of Bishopston Comprehensive School, the well-stocked Pennard Stores and vibrant cafes + pubs, Pennard has a strong community vibe and much to offer.

East and West Cliff are particularly renowned for the unique rugged beauty and variety of house styles along this part of the coast of South Gower.

From here there are easy connections to the wider Gower AONB.

The M4 is 14.5 miles east, Swansea Railway Station is 9 miles with direct trains to Carmarthen, Cardiff and London.

Leaving the popular local amenities of Three Cliffs Café, head east half a mile along East Cliff, No.23 sits second property on the left after the turning, Bosco Lane.

The property has been designed in a modern vernacular style with a simple, recognisable form, finished in with a contemporary edge. With a generous amount of south-facing glazing and with an elevated front terrace the views out are breathtaking.

The approach leads you into a lobbied entrance, through into a ground level living room with fireplace and stairs up to a vaulted first floor. On the ground level are 4 of the 5 bedrooms, all but one have their own fully complemented en-suite. The ground level also houses a 4-piece bathroom, utility room and dedicated back door via a boot room. The spaces are generous and engaging with the proposed use of tactile materials such as linear brick and timber.

Traversing the stairs, you are brought into the main open-plan living / dining / kitchen area with dramatic vaulted ceilings and views out to the south. To the west end of the first floor is the master suite with dressing room, en-suite and access to the generous front terrace. To the east end is the open kitchen with island and enclosed pantry room.

The flow of the spaces throughout has been carefully considered to create purposefully dynamic and static spaces which will come alive when occupied.

An outbuilding to the rear allows for canopied outside dining, an indoor games room and separate room / WC are housed within the same form.

The landscaped garden will include space for entertaining and the potential for a hot tub, still leaving plenty of general garden area.

The wide plot faces the highway south and sits between two existing properties (No.22 + No.24 both also designed by Raum) the orientation of No.23 and those adjacent are such that they only look North and South.

With no built form to the south of the road, and empty fields directly to the north, a strong sense of privacy will be achieved. The southern and western boundaries are populated with mature hedgerows and the eastern and northern to be softened as part of a landscape scheme.
