New homes with big roof top terraces at SA1

A new development of exclusive SA1 homes boasting rooftop terraces complete with sea views, has gone on sale.

Measuring 20sqm, the private terraces will be the size of an average living room and will also, crucially, catch most of the day’s sun.

There are sixteen homes with terraces, part of a new development of twenty-three houses by Neath based Hale Homes. And the Prince’s Wharf development even includes a detached house – likely the only one in SA1 – with its own roof terrace and garden.

All homes are also situated on one of the last available areas of land for residential use in the popular SA1 area.

With prices starting at £250,000, each home in the Prince’s Wharf development is three or four stories high with a central staircase running throughout and a garage below. As well as the homes with private roof terraces, five houses in the development also have a garden.

But those interested would need to get in there quickly as within days of the homes being open for reservation, four were quickly snapped up.

Environmental concerns have been central to the creation of Prince’s Wharf with each home being built to high energy efficiency ratings. Every house features Triso-Warm, a specialized type of external wall system which can drastically reduce heating costs.

Chairman of Hale Homes, Jonathan Hale commented:

“It’s fantastic to be building homes in such a sought-after area. It’s the perfect location to enjoy the coastal and city elements of Swansea but also get straight onto the M4 if you need to commute.

“This is actually our second development in SA1. In 2011 we built our Harbour View development and we’ve had fantastic feedback from the people who moved in there. So we’re confident that this new development will make great homes.

“We’ve already received a large amount of interest and I look forward to Prince’s Wharf being occupied throughout 2018.”

The new development is being built near the Village Hotel and there are plans for an empty site opposite the new homes to be transformed into a park by the Welsh Government next year.
