A three-storey mansion house and mews cottage in one of Penarth’s most desirable areas has been brought to market representing a suburb investment opportunity in a prime location. Min y Don, or ‘Crest of the Wave’ is a grand Victorian building latterly converted into six self-contained one and two-bedroom flats, most retaining their original features. The upper floors have sweeping views across the Bristol Channel with Glastonbury Tor being visible on clear days.

Within the 0.38 acre grounds is a detached, two-storey former coach house with residential accommodation on the first floor and ground floor store rooms. There is also off-road parking and a landscaped front lawn.

Chris Hyde, Associate Director with Cooke & Arkwright’s Land Agency, who is marketing Min y Don on behalf of a private client comments, “We are expecting this property to attract a lot of interest. The interior is generously proportioned and retains much of its original charm and character.  It needs some renovation throughout, which would allow an investor to make their own mark, be it through upgrading the individual flats, or even dedicating each floor to single, good sized apartments, which could be refurbished to a very high standard.”

Min y Don is within a short walking distance of Penarth seafront with its Victorian pier, as well as the town centre with an array of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as the highly regarded primary and secondary schools (private and state). There are spectacular views from Penarth Heights to Cardiff Bay, and the city is just four miles away. To the west is the beautiful countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan, famous for its Heritage Coast and the market town of Cowbridge.

Mansford has expanded its investment portfolio over the last few years. Over this time Andrew West has provided us with a full rating valuation service which has involved giving a view on liabilities prior to acquisitions, as well as conducting negotiations with Valuation Officers on our UK estate. The portfolio includes a wide range of properties from shops, offices and pubs to major leisure schemes. He has been particularly successful in mitigating our liabilities to empty property rate, which has been an issue on acquisition prior to implementing our development and letting strategy. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew's expertise in rating valuation for all property types. The profile of property within his portfolio and the successes achieved are testament to his position as an extremely accomplished rating practitioner.
