Tenby townhouse overlooking the harbour with uninterrupted sea views from the best window seat

Few streets in Wales can surely compete with Crackwell Street in Tenby for a landmark location that is instantly recognisable to so many people both living here and beyond the border.

The road hugs the cliff-top and meanders down to the harbour, lined with the pretty pastel period properties that have become synonymous with this popular Pembrokeshire town.

The address is surely one of the most unique and sought-after in Wales, so if a property on the street does come to market, the price tag is going to be all about location, location, location.

And what a location this two-bed townhouse called Harbour View on the street can offer a lucky new owner.

From the front door it’s a short stroll to the shops and eateries behind it within Tudor Square and the maze of charming streets that wander through Tenby town.

And maybe one of the most famous harbours in Wales is just below the house, and two stunning, sweeping sandy beaches are along the coastline, just a few minute’s walk away.

But if you can’t be bothered to find your sandals or sliders, this four-storey house has maybe one of the best window seats in Wales.

And there’s another one right beside it, eliminating the chances of arguments as to who gets to people and beach watch all day, basked in sunshine and drinking in the iconic harbour view.

But all of the five, front facade windows can delight you with a mesmerising harbour and sea view, demanding you linger and absorb the special location – although, who would even want to resist?

Each window beautifully frames this special view that so few can say they have experienced – maybe for a week or two while on holiday, but not as their permanent home.

And living here full-time would surely be a dream come true for so many people, nestled within the thriving and bustling town with the beauty of the coastline and countryside totally surrounding it.

Harbour View is the yummy filling in a trio of terraces that look out over the pretty, panoramic scene.

And there’ll be plenty of time for a new owner to enjoy this landmark location, as the agent states that the current owner has comprehensively renovated and refurbished the house – all you need to do is turn up and move in.

Down the front steps from the street and into the property through a charming stable door and a spacious kitchen diner is the first port to set anchor.

Here oak flooring ensures a warm welcome – both visually and underfoot – and is mirrored with the choice of oak kitchen worksurfaces, bringing balance to the decor.

The crisp white decor is refreshing and modern with a choice of Shaker-style units traditional yet timeless.

As well as a great place for family suppers and dinner parties with friends, with the sea view as a wonderful feature in the background, there’s practicality in this space too.

A range of appliances hide behind unit doors and a door in the corner of the room reveals a handy utility room.

Up to the next floor and a very comfortable lounge invites you in, continuing the modern yet timeless interior design.

In this room the pair of fabulous window seats can be found – a wonderful way to make the most of the thick walls and deep window sills this period property can offer.

The room is so light with the two harbour views the main and most marvellous of features, but there’s also a continuation of the oak flooring and a gas fire to add internal focal points.

The best seat in the house?

Up the stairs to the bedrooms, but before you get to the top it’s worth noticing the clever idea of having a window, presumably using safety glass, instead of a wall or balustrades between the stairs and the lounge.

The window ensures that the sea view can accompany you as you climb, as well as bathing the staircase in natural light – two excellent reasons to have invested extra budget into adding this feature into the renovation project.

This staircase also illustrates how every space in this house has been considered and maximised.

The little alcove at the base of the stairs is now a perfect place for a bespoke cupboard, with a lamp and a mirror ensuring this cutest of practical spaces is given visually prominence.

The master bedroom on the second floor is also a good example of making the best use of the space on offer.

Bespoke, built-in cupboards either side of the bed give the space a visually pleasing, symmetrical calmness.

Plus, using the same wall panelling for the wardrobes and painting the whole wall and wardrobes white means they all seamlessly blend together and melt into the whole decor scheme of the room, helping to make the bedroom appear bigger.

Keeping the decor neutral connects the interior design to the rest of the house and aids seamless flow from space to space, and also allows the view from the window to dominate.

Bedroom two is also a double and also has its own bespoke storage and harbour view. It is a calm, light and airy space to lay your head and drift off to sleep to the sound of the gentle waves lapping in the harbour below.

The bathroom can be found on this level too and it is, as you would expect by now from this newly-renovated house, a modern and neutral space that should offer you no drama other than the drama of a morning shower trying to wake you up and get you ready for the day.

The top floor has an attic room that is a bonus extra space but it cannot be marketed as a bedroom due to not complying to building regulations.

But it can offer a cool place for a den, the best place for a media room or a quiet place for a home office – it’s probably big enough to accommodate all three functions.

Harbour View is for sale for £825,000 with Brett Property, call their Mildford Haven branch on 01646 663951 to find out more.
