With views over the Pembrokeshire coast, The Priory is a wonderfully unique period house, that is refined down to every last detail.
Gothic-style architecture meets long sea views at the Priory, in Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, which is currently on the market via Savills at a guide price of £1.5 million.
Set above the bay, this Grade II-listed house, with its soaring chimney stacks, was built in about 1870 and has been beautifully renovated: it now features a profusion of handmade cabinets — the fully fitted kitchen by Barry Wade is especially striking — period-style fireplaces and a David Salisbury orangery that is flooded with light.
Many of the rooms look out towards the sea; the elegant master suite, where a vast window frames the picturesque bay, is particularly notable.
But perhaps the best place to relax and take in the panorama is the lovely landscaped garden, with its flower beds, mature trees and seating areas.
