Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This substantial period family home, is situated perfectly for easy access into Newport, being close to schools as well as the centre of town this property offers convenience to all its residents, with ample parking and extensive accommodation.

The property is currently set up with a separate annex space to the side, but this area easily can be incorporated back into the main home should you require.

Typical of its era, the rooms are spacious with beautiful high ceilings and an array of marble fireplaces.

The main entrance porch of the home gives access to the impressive hall, and also through to the well maintained rear garden.

The ground floor has a large lounge and sitting areas at the front of the home that once was two rooms and which boasts a large marble fireplace. This is a room which will really entice the whole family to come together.

There is a formal dining room, which gives access out to the rear garden, but the current owners, offering versatility for everyone, currently use this as a bedroom.

The breakfast and kitchen areas, are currently still separate but give any buyer huge scope for a modern family 'kitchen-diner' subject to relevant permissions.

The first floor has five bedrooms with the master offering en-suite facilities. There is also a family bathroom with both bath and shower cubicle, meaning this home is ideally suited for large families.

The outside of the home gives a graveled parking area to the front, and an impressive garden to the rear. The property has a patio enveloping the rear of the house, and an area ideal for dining to the side. The garden is laid to lawn with a selection of raised beds and mature trees, offering a haven for keen gardeners to get their teeth into.

What the Owner says:

Having lived in this house for 29 years, one takes for granted all the facilities we have on our doorstep.

Everything for a modern family is within walking distance, i.e., schools, doctors, shops, vets, the recreation ground. The countryside is also a short drive away and makes the location very desirable.

When you live in this house, you feel the warmth and happiness that have been ingrained in the walls.

The variety and space of the reception rooms on the ground floor gives you an opportunity to live a solid family life as we have done with our children. Also, entertaining friends lavishly inside or out is sheer joy and rewarding.

On the first floor, it offers peace and tranquillity with spacious bedrooms allowing children to create their own environment.

All in all, every attribute of this home and location makes this home ‘first class’ and we feel very reluctant to leave.
