Mike thinks:
The kitchen feels like a swanky cocktail bar, pass me a Negroni!

Thoughtfully designed over three floors, Crispin House is a spacious and well-scaled four bedroom home that fuses modern design with original charm.

Mike loves:
The mix of old and new, it's the best of both worlds.

Perfect for a family or couple who enjoy entertaining, this is a hidden gem for the discerningly different home hunter. Entering through the stylish matte black double door, the grand entrance hallway features original Minton tiles which lend a sense of grandeur to the home and the fresh and neutral colour palette helps the space feel bright and airy.

The sitting room is elegant and bright, with a beautiful period fireplace installed by the current owners. Farrow + Ball Vert De Terre coats the walls and traditional Cornice and plasterwork help set the period tone, while solid wood floor and stylish artwork add a modern twist to the space. Towards the rear of the home, a generous dining space leads onto the recently modernised kitchen that feels like a chic gastro pub mixed with a swanky cocktail bar. A wonderful spot to cook up a storm and entertain family and friends, there is also access to the garden from the dining space and kitchen, offering effortless indoor-outdoor living. The main reception/dining room is modern with signed Minty artwork, a solid oak dining table and a classic uber cosy Habitat sofa, which can all be included in the purchase if desired.

Heading upstairs to the first floor, there are three good sized airy bedrooms, with one featuring a stunning bay window. Also on this floor is a modern family bathroom. On the top floor, you'll find the airy loft bedroom which features an in-situ wardrobe cleverly cut into the roof. An additional small door leads to further storage space, so finding room for all your bits and bobs will be a breeze.

Two velux style roof windows flood the home with natural light and the sliding privacy blinds are ideal for cosy evenings in. The en-suite shower room benefits from a large shower which has views of the River Usk, Caerleon and St. Julian's railway river bridge!

To the rear of the home, the outside space has been completely redesigned and purpose built and features a spacious garage, private fence and a large stone patio area. The lower section close to the house has a cable drum table and unique graffiti style metal stools that is perfect for entertaining. Two Japanese Acer trees line the borders and the high spec artificial grass offers a wonderfully low maintenance option for those who would rather soak up the rays with a G&T than mow the lawn (guilty!)

  • Three words :  Contemporary. Yet. Charming.

A collection of greenery in Newport

Caerleon Road

Just over the hill you have Beechwood Park so you can look forward to weekend strolls in crunchy-leafed autumn through to summery picnic days. If you want a sit down mean, head to the 5* luxury Celtic Manor (which is a five-minute drive away up Christchurch Road) where you can also top up on your golf skills, or pamper yourself with a facial and relax in the jacuzzi. You are also perfectly placed to take some time out in Caerleon. Let the relaxed vibes rub off on you.

Try Machen Interiors on the High Street to bag yourself unique goodies for your home. Once you’re shopped out, kick back in the The Priory; an 18th hotel that produces some of the most exquisite food in it’s light and airy restaurant or take a pinot in the garden. Watch out for the wooden statues though…

Caerleon Road is served by some cracking primary schools. In Caerleon itself there’s The Lodge and Charles Williams and St Julians too. You’re well connected here even though its a few miles outside of the city, you don’t really need a car. There’s plenty of great transport links throughout, so when the shops call, you don’t need the headache of finding somewhere to park. If you’re heading further afield, turn down Caerleon Road and you can be on the M4 within a few minutes for an easy commute to Cardiff or Bristol, or head northeast from there and the countryside awaits at Wentwood Forest – wonderful!

Friendly vibes & great food
