DESCRIPTION
The hamlet of Welsh Newton Common is within a ten minute drive of the historic and well regarded market town of Monmouth which offers a wide variety of shopping facilities, with well-known supermarkets sitting alongside independent shops as well as other retailers and the weekly market. There is a good choice of education options within the area, from the well regarded Primary Schools to the two Haberdasher's Schools (and preparatory school) in Monmouth, as well as Monmouth Comprehensive School. There are many dining options within an easy drive and these include country pubs and more formal restaurants. For the more energetic, there is a wide range of sporting facilities available including golf at the well regarded Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club, rowing at Monmouth Rowing Club and canoeing on the river Wye at Symonds Yat.

The nearby A40 provides access to the M4 and in turn Cardiff and Bristol. In the other direction the A40 gives easy access to Ross on Wye and the M50/Midlands.

. 
Immediately to the rear of the house is a passageway with covered storage areas and an old bread oven (which, with a bit of restoration, could make a perfect wood burning pizza oven). The passageway leads to a two storey square stone building known as the 'Maid's Room', with a small sitting room, a bedroom and a shower room. From the rear door of the main stone steps lead up to a walled and cobbled courtyard garden where there is a large double garage and the two storey 'Coach House'.

The Main House 
Through the large stone pillars with wrought iron gates, you will find a sweeping gravelled driveway leading to a fantastic entrance porch of the Main House dating back to the 17th century with later additions, during the Georgian period making it the home it is today. There are many original period features including the windows with the shutters that enjoy stunning views, large marble fireplaces, exposed floorboards and flagstone floors, ornate plaster work and even the old meat hooks set into the kitchen ceiling. The ground floor briefly comprises a long reception hall with cloakroom, a dining room, drawing room, library, sitting room, and the spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a very large Nobel range cooker and a walk-in 14ft pantry to the side, utility area and a boiler room. An impressive curved staircase leads to the first floor split level landing with various storage areas, the five double bedrooms (master with en-suite shower room), a feature bathroom and a separate shower room.

The Grounds And Outbuildings. 
The grounds of Newton Lodge are believed to be in excess of 5 acres (STM) with well defined boundaries and comprise formal gardens, an orchard, kitchen gardens and fields. Approaching the property from the lane there's a fenced paddock on the right hand side with a large garage (which has water and electricity) plus a concrete hardstand and a further area of ground to the side.
Past the paddock there is a triangular section with two trees (TPO's in place) and a driveway to the gates leading into the courtyard and the double garage.
Along the north perimeter wall there are a number of outbuildings which have been converted for storage and an office which was reputably the old Doctor's Surgery with a fireplace and original tiles. Along this range of buildings is a large double glazed conservatory which in turn leads to the soft fruit garden, the vegetable garden and the orchard with different varieties of apple and pear trees. From here the gardens slope down to a level lawned area adjacent to the main house. To the side and front of the house are paved sun terraces.
Across the front of the house are the fields with fenced boundaries and are ideal for keeping horses or livestock. To the right of the field is a pond and a 'Roman Bath' which is fed from a local spring and has been used for fresh water swimming in the past. The grounds also have a wide variety of deciduous trees and shrubs.

Services 
Mains electricity, mains water, and Bio-Disk private drainage. The main house has LPG gas heating and the all barns are heated by the oil fired Rayburns (except The Mill).
