Swansea village house with colourful interior requires a complete revamp after sale at auction

Tuesday, March 14, 2023

A rambling four bedroom Swansea property set in own grounds has been snapped up at auction.

The semi derelict house, at 17 Danygraig, in its own grounds in the hamlet of Pantteg, near Ystalyfera, Swansea,  was listed with a guide price of £123,000-plus.

Requiring total top to bottom refurbishment the extended property sold for £140,000 at Newport-based Paul Fosh Auctions,  after attracting a total of 11 bids from five bidders. 

A revamp could mean the distinctive pink bathroom, a feature  on the first floor of the hillside house set in its own wooded grounds, could now be replaced.

Gemma Vaughan, of Paul Fosh Auctions, said: "There is no doubt that this could well become a distinctive and commanding house, once the considerable work needed to bring it back to its best including winning the battle about nature encroaching into various parts of the building, is completed.

"Works have started in places to strip back parts of this rambling and very interesting building. There's an ancient Aga which remains in the kitchen, a room which is flooded with sunlight through its French windows.

"The extended property, ideally located for access to the Brecon Beacons National Park, with good road links to the M4, Swansea, The Mumbles and Gower, could offer a number of uses, subject to any necessary consents.

"Currently the building has an entrance hallway, kitchen, three reception rooms and utility on the ground floor. The first floor offers four bedrooms and the family bathroom. There is also a partial extension to the rear.

"The property, with a gated drive and car port area, has surrounding land which could be ideal for development, subject to any necessary planning consents.

 "There are a good range of local amenities and shopping facilities, with additional facilities and amenities available in the nearby larger towns of Ystradgynlais and Pontardawe."
