Getting on the property ladder can be a bit of a headache, so if you’re going to put yourself through all that (and you’re lucky if you can), you might as well really go for it. So, how about this epic house with a beach in its backyard?
The four-bedroom property is located between Barmouth and Harlech along the Gwynedd coast in Wales, and comes with 1.9 acres of land (if you include a private slice of beach). The house sits atop an elevated bit of land, so you’ll get stunning ocean views and a nice walk down to the shore, should you fancy a dip.
Nearby, you’ll find a Grade II-listed Medieval church and a handful of cottages, and the historic town of Harlech is a short drive away. Off the shore, you may spot fishermen angling for dogfish, bass, flatfish and mackerel. Further along the coast, you could also grab a hot drink at the beach café.
Understandably, the beach bungalow will cost you a pretty penny. Letting agents Monopoly Buy Sell Rent have put it up for sale for £2,250,000.
