It’s got the location, the views and the stylish interiors but would it get your money if you were looking for a seaside holiday home in Wales?
For the same price as a substantial house in any of Wales’ cities and towns or a remote, rural retreat, this three bedroom chalet does offer a location that is hard to beat.
In an area where a cute beach hut costs over £100,000 maybe it’s not too much of a surprise to find this beachside holiday base for sale at the same price as a good sized permanent home anywhere in Wales.
On an exclusive stretch of coast on the stunning Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd, just north of Abersoch, the chalet has an uninterrupted front row seat of the golden sands of a beach called The Warren.
The massive deck outside steals the show initially with this holiday property, capturing the sea views that are spectacular and sweeping.
Unobscured views of Abersoch Bay, St Tudwals Island and Llanbedrog headland can all be enjoyed from the comfort of a lounger.
With private steps directly from deck to beach, after a dip in the sparkling sea, it’s only a few steps to drying off in the sunshine and watching the beach world go by below.
And for an easy life at the chalet, you can just turn up and get on with your holiday as all the furniture, including out on the deck, is included in the sale.
It would be very hard to bring yourself to leave this perfect place for relaxing and al fresco dining but should a potential buyer wander inside, the interior of the chalet is enticing too.
The main living area is open-plan and of course opens directly onto the deck via a wall of double bi-fold doors.
The sea views and skyscapes cascading into the dining area in particular are mesmerising.
The design of this area of the chalet is clever at optimising the space available, in particular the composition of the roof line, as it ‘takes off’ into the sky.
The shape of the roof allows extra head room inside which adds to the light and airy feeling.
But the design also allows more light to flood in as well as glimpses of sky ‘artwork’ framed by the intriguing triangle shaped window frames.
The space flows into the sociable lounge area that has ample room for a large group to sit, relax and watch the cook in the opposite kitchen creating something special for supper if the weather means a BBQ out on the deck is out of the question.
The kitchen area is a sizable contemporary space with glossy white units topped by a turquoise worktop reminiscent of the beautiful shades of sea blue to be admired out of the window.
In fact the interior design throughout this chalet is classic coastal styling, mixing fresh white and blue decor with appropriate materials such as wood, plus tactile wool and sheepskin to bring extra warmth to the spaces.
Subtle accents of stripes, checks and seaside inspired patterns mix with driftwood and coastal accessories, artwork and cotton and linen textures to produce an overall stylish and relaxed seaside design.
The three bedrooms are all doubles and the master has the benefit of a cute dressing area that leads into an ensuite.
The chalet also has a family bathroom.
Both of these bathrooms are reminiscent of a posh hotel, with bowl sinks, gloss tiles featuring metallic mosaics and mirror clad walls that ensure the areas feel as spacious as possible.
And if you love this coastal design and feel inspired, here’s how to do it:
If a new owner ever gets bored of lazing about on their seaside deck, the chalet is part of a 5-star holiday park that offers additional facilities to keep even the most energetic holidaymaker entertained.
There’s an indoor heated pool if the sea is a little too chilly, plus an outdoor pool complex with flume slide and pool bar.
For some fun and games there is badminton, squash and tennis courts, an on-site gym and a soft play area for the children.
Anyone wanting a bit of pampering can access the sauna and steam rooms or book a session in the health and beauty spa.
If cooking becomes a chore then there’s a beachfront bar and restaurant to entice you to wander down the sandy beach to find it.
Any images conjured up by the thought of a holiday chalet being a rickety wooden shed-like structure soon disappear when seeing the photos of the chalet, but as it is a holiday home it cannot be lived in 12 months of the year.
The property is currently the most expensive chalet on the market in Wales with a guide price of £595,000.
