Relaxing with an ice cream, enjoying a refreshing drink, or cooking up a feast on the BBQ - or all three - in the sunny weather on a garden deck sounds like a blissful summer's day.

But add to that views of one of Wales' most beautiful and unspoilt beaches and a famous coastal path outside the garden gate to take you there as well as all the other glorious golden sands in the area, and that summer's day at home just got elevated to pretty perfect for many people.

This recently renovated bungalow has the sweeping sands and sapphire blue waters of Freshwater East below it, offering an idyllic day paddling, surfing or sunbathing (safely) on a perfect piece of Pembrokeshire coastline - if you can be bothered to move from your well-positioned garden deck.

From this home's elevated sitting, lounging and alfresco dining area you can watch the lazy life of the seaside unfold - boats bobbing by, seagulls soaring on the breeze and people having the best beach life, at least for the day, on the shore below you.

The last property on the country lane before it wanders off to Jameston is this home called Arosfa, which has a path down the side of the property that takes you directly to the golden sands below.

And for refreshments after a hard day of surfing, paddle boarding, rock pool exploring or doing absolutely nothing on the beach, the village pub is just a stroll away.

Who wouldn't want a stunning sea view to wake up to?

If wandering further afield appeals, then the fact that the Wales Coast Path, as part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, meanders past the property is a bonus for investigating the stunning coastline surrounding this ever popular village, including the famous and more frequented Freshwater West, an equally breathtaking beach location used in movies such as Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

It's the location primarily that drew the current owners to the property when they first purchased Arosfa, both locally and the surrounding area, and why they have stayed and enjoyed living at this special seaside spot for almost 30 years.

During that time the owners have extended the house, added modern amenities and bonus features. but kept the rustic character of the period property, all based around the sea view from the windows.

The family room has a duo of sea views

So the warm and welcoming country-style kitchen diner has been partially knocked through to a family sitting room in a broken-plan layout, via an open, double-doorway, so the coastal view, as well as the conversation, floods into the front of the house from the back.

The conversation at the kitchen table or in the family room attached might be the characterful interior design of the kitchen - of visually appealing handmade, solid bleached pine units in a Shaker-style and Belfast sink that pay homage to the home's rural surroundings.

The house might be on the coast but behind it the stunning Pembrokeshire countryside rolls out to the horizon and offers peaceful rural rambles and picnics by a babbling brook if the beach starts to look over-crowded or you want a change from sandy toes.

Topped with granite work surfaces and hiding integrated appliances, the kitchen diner is a space for cooking up something special as well as a perfect socialising space.

Through that open doorway to the family room and the successful flow of the house continues, with a surprise open doorway to the right that rewards you with a view of the pretty and spacious main lounge to tempt you in, but first a nose around this family space is worth the time.

This sitting room is an extension added to the home about 10 years ago that not only does the job of creating flow between the three main living spaces but also does the job of connecting this room and the kitchen to those irrepressible sea views.

There's a door in this family room that leads directly out onto the sun-drenched decking from this room too.

If a new owner wanted to put their stamp on the property, maybe adding a set of bi-fold doors on this side wall out to the deck could connect the indoor and outdoor spaces even more - subject to planning permission, of course.

The indoor outdoor flow is achieved effortlessly in the main lounge in the centre of the house, which is a very generous space that has a generous-sized set of French doors leading out to the garden patio.

This new sun terrace is currently being updated and is soon to be finished - this family seem to never stop renovating and updating, but the main fruits of their labour can be seen in the garden later.

The central lounge is another welcoming space, with built-in storage, a substantial Welsh dresser and charming stripped floorboards ensuring the country character is matched on the floor to the large exposed stone fireplace on the wall.

Although this robust feature is flanked by sea views, it can still command attention. With the addition of a log burner nestled inside the space, it's the perfect winter warmer while the storms rage across the ocean outside.

But eventually you will be drawn to the views and step outside onto the garden terrace which, when completed, will have ample space for alfresco dining for family and friends and room for loungers and deck chairs to retire to once all stomachs are full.

The Covid-19 pandemic has created a unique property market, with prices rising in many areas.

Back to the sizeable lounge, and the easy flow of the house continues at both ends of the space. At one end the charming stripped wood internal door leads to the entrance hall, and at the other end, to the bedrooms.

Through that door there is an inner vestibule from which three of the four double bedrooms can be accessed, the fourth one being located off the main entrance hall and at the front of the house.

Maybe, if four bedrooms are not required, this room could become a home office and study, tucked away from sea view daydream temptation.

The master, of course, commands the best sea view at the rear of this sleeping wing of the home, and although the view might be partially obscured when you stand at the window, with the bed positioned by the wall, it is a sweeping sea view all the way, directly from the pillow.

Four piece family bathroom

This bedroom has an ensuite cloakroom that, with a bit of reworking of the floorplan in this corner, could become a full ensuite, but as the four-piece family bathroom is just next door, if a shower or bath is required, why bother with the expense and upheaval?

But the current owners are no strangers to renovation expense and upheaval, as this home can boast more than maybe first meets the eye - a separate and fully equipped detached annexe in the garden that arguably has the best sea view of any annexe in the area.

Once a garage, now a sea view annexe

And there it is - the uninterrupted sea view from the annexe - yummy

It was once a garage but why waste that awesome sea view on the motor? Accessed via a large set of French doors via the garden deck, the annexe has a picture window that frames a view that's pretty as a picture - you could literally hang it on the wall as artwork. This little lounge area is then joined by a sleeping zone, and then a door leads to the kitchen and shower room.

There are multiple generations of a family who are going to be fighting over this space if it is to be a home for a larger family, teens vs granny for arguably the best accommodation in the property - certainly the most private.

Of course, if a new owner wants to investigate the possibility of securing planning permission for a holiday let, the annexe could become a nice little earner if that planning is granted.

But chances are a new owner won't want to share this amazing home, annexe and beautiful location with anyone, and who can blame them?

The bungalow is on the market for offers in excess of £695,000 with Fine and Country Pembrokeshire, give their Narberth branch a call on 01834 862138 to find out more.
