Without doubt this house is exceptional! Majestic in its large grounds and elevated position with the most impressive, panoramic views over the sea, coast and outlying islands, plus Tenby town and harbour. Kingswood commands perhaps the finest position in Pembrokeshire with views across Carmarthen Bay to the Gower Peninsula and the Bristol Channel across to Devon and Lundy Island.
The custom designed Huf Haus was built in 2012/13 and was meticulously planned to maximise the cliff side location and ensure unobstructed sea views from as many rooms as possible. The Huf Haus style is to feature glass, light and character and this home is certainly reflective of this. Spacious, generous and open-plan are the attributes of exclusive architecture that interprets modern living and lifestyle in this unique home.
A gated entrance gives access to the driveway past beautifully landscaped grounds up to a large parking area with a triple garage. Kingswood is immediately impressive with characteristic post and beam architecture using laminated Nordic Spruce beams and acres of triple glazing with large roof overhangs. This overhang helps to keep the summer sun off the glazing yet allows the low winter sunshine to fill the home with natural light and contribute to solar heat gain. External blinds throughout can also be used for shade and privacy.
The house design was adapted to its setting in the landscape, bringing the outside in throughout the house with the wall-to-ceiling glazing, balconies and roof terraces. The interior, across two floors, is light and spacious with an easy flow-through from a generous entrance hall with vaulted ceiling to an inner hall (piano room) where a floating staircase rises to the first floor. The laundry and plant room as well as a double bedroom, shower room and glorious master bedroom with luxurious ensuite bathroom plus sauna, along with a walk in dressing room are located on this ground floor level.
The first floor with a galleried landing and library has a twin bedded room with a useful mezzanine level, a further double bedroom with magnificent views east, south and west, a luxury shower room, and a superb open plan living area comprising of a spacious dining room and a well-equipped, gourmet kitchen which spills into a glorious lounge where you can’t help but be held spellbound by the magnificent and mesmerising sea views beyond the infinity freshwater swimming pool! A glass balustraded balcony surrounds the upper floor and is accessible from each room on this level.
Beautiful Tenby town centre is a few minutes stroll away where splendid Victorian and Georgian pastel coloured buildings house a plethora of restaurants, cafes, public houses, art galleries, independent shops and boutiques as well as the necessary everyday amenities within the Tudor town walls. The activity filled, picturesque harbour and four kilometres of unspoilt sandy beaches on the magnificent Pembrokeshire coastline form part of the National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty which offers a huge variety of landscapes as well as the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

The cutest, most appealing garden house is tucked into the cliff-side below the main house and boasts amazing sea views, and total privacy. What a special spot to hide-away for an hour or two to read, meditate, take an afternoon nap or be inspired to write your novel! Useable all year round as it’s equipped with a wood burner for cool evenings and winter months.
As stylish as everything else about this very special property. A bespoke greenhouse has low brick walls with timber frames and a raised roofline and is tucked into a sheltered location in the lower area of the grounds.
Located on the top level of the grounds is a large well-constructed store house with specialised accommodation for bats in the upper roof space.
Gardens & grounds
Beautifully landscaped gardens with tiered lawns, borders of perennials, raised stone wall beds of hardy, coast tolerant shrubs and plants, designer garden sculptures, water features, areas to relax and dine al fresco, and places to marvel at the panoramic, truly spectacular views – such as the glass edged G&T terrace set to make the most of the unbeatable views in the upper grounds.
The house is surrounded by paths, sun terraces, sheltered patios and feature areas ensuring you can fully enjoy the beauty, sights and sounds of this magical coastal location in all seasons. There is even a lovely mixed woodland area to walk through and a rustic path to access the nearby Coastal Path or winding down the cliff side to the secluded beach cove below. The property extends down the cliffs as far as the high water mark. (We are not within the boundaries of the Tenby Conservation Area but are in the National Park of course).
Lower parking area
To ensure privacy and provide additional visual impact to this magnificent home, the plot of land below the house was purchased and provides gated, private parking when required.

Mains water, mains electricity and mains drainage.
The house is entirely electric with the heating and cooling system operated from an air source heat pump in the plant room. All the floors are heated or cooled by the heat pump. A solar pv installation on the east and west facing roof supplies about 1/3 of the house electricity requirement over the year, achieving maximum benefit in the sunnier summer months. The panels are orientated east and west to maximise the length of time during the day when they are generating as the house consumption does not generally peak at midday.
Rainwater is harvested from one of the roofs of the house and has a much lower mineral content than tap water and is hence much more suitable for topping up the freshwater swimming pool. The pool is kept clean and hygienic without the use of any chemicals by the regenerative reed bed with deep gravel filters. The gravel filter bed hosts microorganisms which extract all the mineral in the pool overflow water before it is returned to the pool. Nitrates and phosphates are absorbed and without these mineral the pool water reached drinking water standards, far exceeding bathing water requirements. There is no Chlorination or uv treatment needed – no stinging, irritated eyes or dry skin and hair.
