Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built around 1680, The Old House is one of Newport's oldest and arguably one of its most beautiful properties too. Brimming with history, the house has been featured numerous times in the local Newport News magazine, mentioning its historical significance in the village and sharing stories about its previous owners and the various uses of the building over the years. Completely renovated in 2009 it's rare to find such an old property in such great condition.

One thing that's obvious just from walking through the front door is what a lovely, warm 'feel' this property has. It's a welcoming home, which has a friendly atmosphere and plenty of character. On entering the property, to the left is the lounge which has a huge picture window and a stunning Inglenook fireplace with a beautifully designed log burner inside. On seeing photos of this property at Christmas you can just imagine what a lovely, cosy room this can be. From here you can reach the dining room and to the left of here is the downstairs cloakroom. The dining room (aka the family room) has a gas burner in place and you'll also find the beautiful wooden flooring continued through here.

Next you reach the kitchen and breakfast room - my personal favourite! Double doors from the breakfast room lead straight out on to the patio and you enjoy the sun here for most of the day. Sit and enjoy breakfast with the sun streaming through - just lovely! The kitchen is a traditional style and in keeping with the rest of the property and it also benefits from a huge utility / laundry room which is almost the same size again. Doors also lead out from the kitchen and laundry room out to the garden.

Heading up to the first floor are three of the four bedrooms, two of which here are double in size. Exposed beams and character features make for stunning bedrooms and extra storage can be found in the master bedroom. Finally on this floor is the family bathroom. The fourth (double) bedroom can be found in the basement, tucked away from the rest of the house this either makes a great guest room or a 'teenager's pad' enjoying a little more privacy.

The garden is another highlight to this historical and stunning property. It enjoys the sun all day long, as the sun moves across the garden, meaning you can enjoy plenty of time relaxing in and enjoying the garden. The patio area just off the kitchen / breakfast room makes it an ideal socialising space and the owners tell me of many a family gathering and fantastic party that has been held there. The parking area (off street), a log store and shed can also be found at the rear of the property.
 

LOCATION Not only is this an amazing property but the location is ideal too. Situated in the heart of Newport village, it's very close to the local shops, restaurants and the train station. For dog owners, there are also numerous walks nearby across the fields. This is a truly happy family home, so call us to arrange your viewing and find out more about the history of The Old House.
