The Story

EASY FLOW
The ground floor of the house has now been arranged with different reception spaces flowing into each other. There are rooms for relaxation, dining and entertaining. “The arrangement of the space here is fantastic. One of the rooms coming off the entrance hall is a sun lounge – this is currently used as a games room and has a pool table in it. Here bi-folding doors pull right back on to a terrace, where outside furniture has been carefully positioned to give across a very low wall,” she says. “New owners may wish to make this higher for increased privacy or may themselves enjoy sitting outside and looking at the view.”

MODERN KITCHEN
The kitchen has a bright, contemporary feel, with light units, dark work surfaces and a central island and breakfast bar for casual dining. Walls, ceiling and the floor in here have been kept pale in colour and a roof skylight brings the light streaming in from above. “The kitchen is one of the real attractions of this house. It has been beautifully finished, with features such as a wine cooler, eye-level oven and built-in microwave,” she says. “It opens into the family room and the dining room, which makes for very easy living on a daily basis and when entertaining. There are more bi-folding doors from the dining room on to the garden, which would be perfect for anyone who enjoys alfresco dining.”

PRIVATE BALCONY
Upstairs at Dockwood there are four bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms. Again, there is plenty of space for a family or for a couple who enjoy welcoming friends to accommodate visitors overnight. “The bedrooms here are really nice – the master bedroom, with its walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room, is especially lovely,” she says. “There is also access on to a balcony, with a roof garden, where it is nice to sit in the sunshine or have a cup of tea in the morning and take in the views.” She adds: “All the bedrooms are doubles, with two of them having access to a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.”

GREAT SCOPE
Although the house itself is beautifully finished, there could be the opportunity to take it a stage further, she suggests. “There is a detached building here, which currently houses an indoor swimming pool,” she explains. “New owners could look into refurbishing this if they wished or they could consider converting it into something else. Subject to the relevant planning permissions, this could perhaps become a self-contained annexe, for example. It could be ideal for a member of the family who want their own space or equally it could be used as work space perhaps.”

COMMUTING DISTANCE
Llanwern is a pleasant village just a few minutes’ drive from Newport. It offers easy access to the M4, Cardiff and Bristol, and has a public house, as well as its golf course. “Dockwood is very convenient for the Newport Retail Park and for the fabulous new Friars Walk shopping centre, which is close to the river front in Newport – both places have some great shops, as well as cinemas,” she says. “With such good access to Cardiff too, the new owners of the house will also be able to enjoy all the vibrant shopping and leisure areas of the city as well.”
She suggests: “I can imagine this house suiting an executive couple perhaps working in Cardiff or Bristol. Dockwood could be ideal for a family but could also suit an individual or couple looking for a home in a nice location, which is ready to move into but also offers potential to be enhanced.”

Setting The Scene

Dockwood is set back, with very generous off-road parking on its own private drive.
The garden is largely set to the side of the property to better enjoy the views of the golf course.
It is laid to lawn with a terrace area off the sun lounge. To the rear is a detached building with an indoor swimming pool.
