Porthcawl was named the place with the biggest property price rise in Wales in 2021 when looking at coastal towns, so the word is definitely getting out that this is a spot that is getting hotter. Find out more about that here.

The town can offer a variety of homes across a range of prices and a range of eras too, from a cute flat in a converted Edwardian terrace to one of the rarely available seafront, sea view millionaire’s pad.

Website Porthcawl Town Council states that construction of the town started in the early 19th century when it was decided to build a harbor to service the expanding coal and iron industries of the south Wales valleys, which increased with the building of a rail link.

Double, huge bay windows and a first floor balcony mean this house is a level above the average

At that time and adjacent to Porthcawl were two older settlements, the village of Nottage and the village of Newton, but with the town expanding over the years both of these have been absorbed into the town.

However, both historic locations have managed to efficiently keep their village feel, with open green spaces, characterful pubs and a sense of community.

This handsome home is a period property that can be found nestled into the residential landscape of Nottage.

From the outside it is a head turner on the street, occupying a corner plot and boasting its classic period credentials.

But this is not your standard Edwardian house, this one is substantially above the norm and that is evident from the added extras you can spot from the pavement.

Help with your hunt for a home here:

Not just a double bay window but sizeable bays that boast seven windows that are topped off with a decorative stone ‘crown’.

Another addition to this posh pad to immediately notice is the first floor balcony, indicating that probably more budget was lavished on this beauty than its contemporaries from the era in the area.

Wander to the side of the house that overlooks the garden and there’s a very pretty terrace with tiled floor nestled under the balcony above.

Accessed via a glass door from the lounge, this terrace is a most delightful spot to enjoy afternoon tea in the sunshine.

The outside of the house has raised the excitement level and the anticipation to push open the front door and have a nose inside.

Definitely take your muddy boots or sandy sliders off in here please – the interior is immaculate.

Soft and gentle tones continue in the kitchen

From the hall, take a left into the sitting room that is flooded with light from its stunning large bay window and flooded with tactile velvet sofas that easily persuade you to linger for longer.

Past the original staircase, that rightly takes center stage as the dominant period feature in the house, and into the kitchen that continues the calm and peaceful decor tones.

The kitchen could be opened up into the adjacent dining room if required once a structural expert has checked the viability of removing the dividing wall.

This would create a front to back kitchen diner that would be the heart of the home and have light and garden views ‘book marking’ each end of the space.
