Bassaleg Road has been gently improved over the last four years. It has been lived in and loved. A pristine exterior in red brick and painted white stone, the windows have been updated but in-keeping with the overall style.

A transom window above the charcoal front door, invites natural light into this home where the lightest of design touches allow the historic bones of this Newport home to really shine.Cleverly, the hallway adorned with Minton tiles and staircase hides the door through to the dining/sitting room and kitchen, keeping the front of the house somewhat separate and cosy. In the lounge, the layout oozes a welcoming attitude. It is convivial and yet quaint, allowing the natural beauty of the room to reveal itself. A big stone bay window and open chimney breast with exposed bricks contrasting against the plastered walls sits proudly. The picture rails and original cornices drawing the eye up, expressing just how tall these livings spaces are.

The second living space takes the temperature down a notch to ‘seriously cool'. Currently decked out as a games room, the doors open out onto the garden courtyard connecting the inside to out, making this space a wonder no matter the season. More muted tones continue here; super adaptable and ready to move into.

In the dining room a more traditional approach unfolds; cool grey tiles on the floor contrast against the crisp icy blue wall palette, all naturally paired with reclaimed and vintage dining furniture, an insight into how you could dress this space. Into the kitchen, the classic galley shape is deceptively spacious, with room for a range cooker and overlooking the courtyard garden, it has a naturally sunny disposition. Modern cabinetry and wood effect flooring keeps things neutral and tonal.

Right at the very end of the ground floor sits a modern shower room, bedecked in metro tiles. Perfect for those busy mornings where one bathroom space just isn't enough for the post-breakfast chaos hour. Upstairs the main bedroom sits to the front of the home, with not one but two beautifully dressed windows, perfect for star-gazing, but essential for winding down at the end of a long day.

Original cast iron fireplaces take centre stage in these upstairs rooms, making them all the more cosy. There are four bedrooms in total, varying in size but not in charm, and a perfectly appointed family bathroom, with claw foot roll-top bathtub, a half wall of metro tiles, edged with grey grout for a more industrial look and soften by the other bathroom furnishings. All finished in a gentle wash of dove grey over the walls.

Outside the classic terrace courtyard is calling out for someone with a green finger or two, to balance the brickwork and patio area with some luscious planting, creating an outdoor dining area the envy of all your friends. What this terrace home also has is a double garage. No, it's not the sexiest part of the house (that's left to the original features inside) but it is a rarity in terraced properties and perfect for additional storage or to be used in its original guise.
