Luxury retro villa complete with golden taps leaves house hunters drooling

An incredible retro home that's been "frozen in the 1970s" has gone on sale.

The property is so glamorous that its luxurious bathroom even boasts golden taps, WalesOnline reports.

The bath is rightly given the stage it deserves as the centrepiece of the room.

There's room for two to enjoy a bubble bath, complete with built-in velvet head pillows, and it has a gold ceiling rose above and is surrounded by smoked glass tiles, just to ensure the glamour is optimised.

With the theatre as a theme, the bath even has its own set of swish curtains with tassel tie-backs.

There are more mirror tiles, a fancy ceiling cornice and a chandelier hanging near the double basins, as well as the more functional built-in storage plus task lighting and mirrors.

Further down the landing of this sprawling and truly special five-bedroom coastal mansion is another bathroom displaying some of the best and rarest features a retro bathroom can offer.

Again the bath is raised on a platform to create the sunken effect so popular and seen as so glamorous not just in the 1970s. Somehow even today climbing into a sunken bath feels like stepping into luxury.

The third bathroom shouts retro glamour just as much as the other two with some very unusual features.

At a glance the brown bath appears to be 'hovering' over the mustard carpet, protruding into the middle of the room and flanked either side by large gold taps.

But there is so much more to this incredible property than it's funky retro bathrooms.

  • Beautiful 3-bed home with amazing views on sale for £325k is hiding surprise feature

It was constructed as a luxury, designer home by the sea and all the top quality additions of the era that still remain are mesmerising.

There's the impressive main staircase with ornate metal banisters, that sweeps up the levels and sets the tone of breath-taking interiors as soon as a visitor steps though the front door.

The huge stone fireplace in the lounge is the perfect feature to offset the size of the room and is a substantial stone creation with a robust wood mantle.

The dining room can easily seat a whole football team, with room for the coach and support staff too, and the bonus of any meal accompanied by sea views via the huge arch windows.

The kitchen is in most homes over the past 50 years the hub of the home, but this one is so large it can take a generous island, sofas, sideboards, dining table and chairs.

Another sociable area in this sprawling house is the vast games room, which is such a versatile space it could be a gym, dance floor, yoga studio or all three, complete with refreshments available from the corner bar.

Downstairs in the main house there's also a study with a surprise spiral staircase that contributes to the continuing charm of the house. This ground floor can also offer a utility room, cloakroom and extra, separate sitting room.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two of those amazing bathrooms, and then a vast mastersuite that includes the ensuite that is probably the best genuine 1970s luxury bathroom you are likely to see in Wales, complete with the double bath with velvet curtains.

  • Creepy abandoned garden 'infested with snakes and underground bees' chopped down

The layers of garden cut into the hillside ensure multiple areas for relaxing, although surely the lawn next to the pond is popular but maybe not as popular as the indoor swimming pool, dry sauna and spa that this unique home can also boast.

Views of the clear blue water off the Pembrokeshire coast at New Quay are a constant companion when wandering through the substantial outdoor space, which also includes a paddock and former stable block.

Sara Morel CEO of salvoweb, says: "The 1970s was a decade of choice, and perhaps when personal taste really blossomed from the seeds sown in the sixties.

"Luxury is longevity, for example this spiral staircase would make a fine addition to a modern home to bring storied character to a new space.

"We want our interiors to excite us, and why shouldn't a trip to the loo be a glittering escape with colourful bathroom suites and glamorous gold taps?"

This truly special house called Mahe is on the market for £1.6m with estate agent Morgan & Davies, call their Aberaeron branch on 01545 571600.
