Positioned in the heart of town with the super Quay Arts centre on the doorstep – this is such a fabulous house and is so beautifully styled. I think I fell in love with the garden most of all – it is like a tropical paradise. It is totally private and has a hot tub!!

Full description

This handsome Grade II listed town house is positioned in the centre of Newport, close to the lovely Quay Arts Centre and the river Medina, and is within a flat walk of all the excellent town centre amenities; bars and cafes. The house itself has been lovingly; tastefully and respectfully restored by the current owners, who have managed to successfully blend the mixture of retaining its historical character with some modern conveniences. The rooms are well appointed and spacious, with the comfortable sitting room at the front of the home, with an attractive woodburning stove. The large kitchen is placed centrally in the home and has been designed by an experienced cook. It features an excellent range of units and sits adjacent to the gorgeous dining room. The dining room is a wonderful and stylish addition to the home - which lets light flood in and has a link and view to the beautiful garden. There is the added bonus of a cloakroom on this level. Over the top two floors, there are five good sized bedrooms - including the master en-suite bedroom as well as a chic family bathroom. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms are modern in design, but fit perfectly with the character of the home. Perhaps the garden is the biggest surprise of them all - with a Mediterranean feel - stocked with a glorious array of structured and flowering plants. It is a large garden for the town centre and widens to the end - where there is a hot tub and changing area - just that extra touch of luxury within this private haven.
