This fabulous double-fronted family home is situated within a stone's throw of Newport's town centre which offers a wonderful variety of retail and leisure facilities - as well as nearby highly-regarded schooling.

The property boasts an abundance of charm and character with many period touches throughout - such as tall ceilings, mouldings, exposed timber, Victoria Minton tiling and much more! It also enjoys a colourful history - once a 'beer house' known as the Dog and Partridge (c. 1830 - 1860) - after which it once again became a private residence.

The layout provides very generous proportions with multiple reception rooms as well as 3 DOUBLE bedrooms.

And the property is just as impressive outside as it is on the inside! To the rear there is a fabulous garden that has been thoughtfully sectioned with lawn surrounded by a variety of specimen trees, plants and fruit trees including apple, fig, pear, peach - as well as a grape vine! Keen gardeners will be pleased to know there is also a section with planting beds and a greenhouse.
