Tenure: Freehold

A charming and spacious Victorian cottage, just a stone's throw from Newport Quay, and only a short walk to the amenities of popular Newport town. With riverside walks and access to extensive parkland on the doorstep, 24 Hillside presents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a family home in a location that is both tranquil and convenient.
Retaining many original features, the character of this property remains intact, with a warm, homely ambience. Inside, the accommodation consists of a welcoming entrance hall, spacious lounge, good sized dining room and kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms, secret attic room, bathroom and a WC.
The end of terrace home has desirable side access, combined with enviable off-street parking, garage and fabulous low maintenance gardens.
Although now lapsed, approximately 10 years ago planning consent was granted to convert the property into two dwellings. This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a traditional family cottage, in a great location.

Approaching from Hillside, steps through the terraced front garden lead to the entrance, with Victorian tiles welcoming visitors to this lovely home.

ENTRANCE HALL Extending to 11'8
The entrance hall is bright and welcoming, with natural light coming through the glazed half-round panel above the front door, and accentuated by the neutral colour scheme and carpet. Open stairs to the first floor are complete with a traditional balustrade, and create a wonderful study space under, which could also be the perfect spot for coats and shoes. A characterful door creates a useful cupboard under the low end of the stairs, and the space is warmed by a large radiator. There is a door to the lounge and an open doorway into the dining room.

LOUNGE 13'8 x 10'7
The perfectly proportioned lounge is packed with charm and original features. The large bay window has a radiator under and creates a lovely light in this room, and affords views over the front garden, select neighbouring properties and the river Medina beyond. The characterful chimney breast is open, with a chunky rustic timber mantle and a magnificent wood burner on a tile hearth. A dado rail compliments the deep original skirting boards, which perfectly frame the neutral carpet. A built-in cupboard to one alcove is finished in a complimentary timber, and contains the electricity meter, consumer panel, plus TV and telephone points.

DINING ROOM 12'5 x 11'2
A large south facing window floods the dining room with light, enhancing the feeling of space. A fantastic original style fireplace features a timber surround and decorative mantle, and is complimented by a dado rail and deep original skirtings. There is a large radiator, and a built-in cupboard to one alcove in natural timber with painted detailing, with a phone point inside. A doorway leads to the kitchen.

KITCHEN 14'3 x 6'6
With elegantly long proportions, the kitchen is extremely welcoming and homely. The sense of space is accentuated with the fantastic window to the side aspect combined with the open archway into the utility room and on to the garden beyond. An ornate cover conceals a large radiator. Plenty of storage is provided by the mixture of floor and wall units, which are all finished in natural timber with contrasting brushed stainless handles. Country style tiles create a fantastic splash back, and perfectly compliment the timber finish roll-edged worktops, which feature an integrated 1.5 bowl sink and drainer with modern mixer tap over. A tall open unit provides a neat space for a tall fridge freezer, and there is an integrated NEFF dishwasher. A broad brushed stainless recirculation hood sits over a contemporary five-ring Kenwood range, which is also finished in brushed stainless. High quality chrome switches work in harmony with the contemporary colour scheme, and the grey tiled floor leads through the archway and in to the utility room.

UTILITY 6'9 x 6'8
The utility room not only beautifully connects the kitchen with the garden, but also provides an extremely useful addition to the home. With a lovely Velux window combined with the south facing French doors, the utility room is extremely light and bright. Built in cupboards feature natural timber louvre doors, and provide a base unit for a sink, as well as providing space for a washing machine and drier.

STAIRS AND FIRST FLOOR LANDING
White painted floorboards lead up the stairs, and run throughout the first floor, and are complimented by a white painted dado rail on a cheerful yellow colour scheme. From the first-floor landing there are doors do bedroom one, bedroom two, the bathroom and WC.

BEDROOM ONE 13'11 into bay x 13'1 into recess
The generously proportioned master bedroom features a large UPVC bay window, affording the best views in the house. The chimney breast features an original cast fireplace in an elegant timber surround, while the contemporary grey walls compliment the white washed floor and white picture rail to create a sophisticated colour scheme. There is a large built in cupboard that maximizes the space over the stairs, plus a radiator under the window and also a small loft access hatch.

BEDROOM TWO 12'5 reducing to 9'1 x 8'3 reducing to 5'3
With an interesting footprint creating multiple alcoves ideal for storage and a large south facing window affording an abundance of natural light, bedroom two has a bright ambience, enhanced by the neutral colour scheme and white floor. From bedroom two, climb the timber pull-down ladder to the secret attic space, which is the perfect venue for childhood adventures (or could be very nice additional storage!), with its fully boarded and lined construction and neat Velux window.

BATHROOM
The light and bright bathroom features an opaque south facing window. A built-in cupboard houses the Worcester combi boiler with shelves over, and a matching cupboard opposite provides a fantastic airing cupboard. A white sink sits in a timber doored vanity unit with cupboards under, which features traditional chrome taps and a tiled surround. A bath fits neatly into an alcove, and benefits from a mixer tap and a shower over. A separate walk-in shower has double timber doors and is fully tiled in fresh white. The bathroom is finished with a blue lino floor.

WC
A charming light comes through the traditional coloured glass window, into the separate WC, which features a low-level WC in white with dual flush, and a compact basin. The neutral colour scheme is complimented by the striking black and white tile effect lino floor.

OUTSIDE
The terraced front garden is finished in low maintenance gravel. Surrounded by mature planting, the top level of the terrace features a great spot to sit and enjoy the views towards the river, and also leads to the gated side path. Through the gate, concrete hard standing provides perfect bin-storage space, while a wall with fencing over affords privacy. A small brick lean-to provides useful additional storage. Arriving at the rear of the home, a fantastic stone terrace spans the plot and is a fabulous venue for entertaining. White stone chips surround the terrace and a grey stone path leads down the garden, alongside a zero-maintenance lawn to create a contemporary feel. At the end of the lawn is a stunning contemporary style summer house, which provides an outside room. Beyond the lawn, a solid gate gives way to a concrete side path which runs alongside the single garage, which is a good size and benefits from power connection. To the rear of the garage is further private parking, accessible via a gravel track.
